Men are becoming increasingly conscious of how they look. One of the most common concerns among the male population is the appearance of man boobs. This condition, medically known as gynecomastia, may result in serious self-esteem issues and psychological stress. Dr. Steven Wallach is a skilled gynecomastia expert who has helped men of different ages improve the appearance of their man boobs through a Manhattan gynecomastia treatment. Here are some important facts about gynecomastia:

  • Man boobs are very common among the male population; 9 out of 10 males are affected with the condition. However, a lot of these men have undiagnosed gynecomastia.
  • While obesity or being overweight is one of the leading factors linked to gynecomastia, its exact cause is unknown.
  • The occurrence of gynecomastia is strongly linked to testicular cancer.
  • Males who have a long-term history of taking antipsychotic drugs and steroids for asthma and allergies are also more prone to gynecomastia.
  • Man boobs could occur in either one or both of the male breasts.
  • The most common way to prevent gynecomastia is to avoid eating anything that is too fatty.
