It is not uncommon for men to have enlarged breasts. This issue usually occurs as a result of fat accumulation in the chest. If fat is the issue, liposuction can be performed to create a flatter and more masculine-looking chest.
In some cases, fat is not the cause of breast enlargement. The overproduction of glandular tissue in the chest may be the source of the issue. This condition is known as gynecomastia. Patients who suffer from gynecomastia have enlarged breasts that feel firm. The only way to correct gynecomastia is through a surgical procedure that excises the excess glandular tissue.
