Gynaecomastia is a condition in which there is excessive development of the male breast. Most male experience this some point in their lives. It can be attributed to an underlying abnormality (hormonal inbalance, medication etc), although for most patients there is no identifiable cause. Gynaecomastia results in social embarrassment.
Management of this condition in the past requires surgical excision, resulting in ugly scars on the chest. With the advent of minimally invasive surgery, this condition can now be effectively corrected with minimal scarring.
