There are several reasons why male breast enlargement can occur. A common cause is the accumulation of excess fat in the chest. This creates the appearance of “man boobs,” which can make men feel self-conscious about their appearance. This issue can be corrected through liposuction.

The other potential cause of enlarged male breasts is a condition known as gynecomastia. Gynecomastia causes excess glandular tissue to form in male breasts. This condition can occur due to hormonal changes, the use of certain drugs, or hereditary factors. In order to correct gynecomastia, the excess glandular tissue must be surgically excised.
