Male breast development is usually not related to weight or exercise. Ninety percent of the time, there is no known cause and the treatment is surgery. But the good news is that Dr. Gurley can fix male breasts and the surgical results are permanent! Male breasts can cause embarrassment in both boys and men. They avoid certain activities such as swimming. They wear several shirts at one time to hide their excess breast tissue. In some cases, male breast development causes psycho-social problems too. The permanent results of this corrective surgery are seen immediately. Some of our patients are able to begin working out after 2 weeks. I keep a very close eye on my patients after surgery. I constantly guide then with advice for self-care at home.
