Gynecomastia in Teens Dallas, TX

Gynecomastia is when men or boys develop large breasts. The breast itself may become larger, and the nipples may be puffy or protrude. It is believed to be linked to hormonal changes and can develop in teen and pre-teen boys. Gynecomastia is not the same as having fatty tissue from being overweight, and the enlarged breasts will remain despite diet and exercise. In teenagers, the condition can sometimes clear up on its own, but it can take many years. Dr. Azouz of Azouz Plastic and Cosmetic Surgery can help restore the chest to a natural, masculine form with teenage gynecomastia treatment.

Enlarged Breasts in Male Teens

During the critical formative teenage years, gynecomastia can be a devastating physical problem. It can be a source of great anxiety, poor self-image and body shame. Teenagers will often limit the types of clothes they wear and avoid social situations where the chest might be noticed. Sports, camping, dating and all aspects of life are affected. If the condition is noticed, teasing may occur and affect school performance.

Signs of gynecomastia in teens are:

  • Rounded, protruding breasts or nipples
  • Asymmetrical breast or nipples
  • Swollen or puffy nipples
  • Excess breast tissue that does not go away with diet or exercise

Although the origin is usually benign, enlarged breasts in male teens can occur for a number of reasons, some of them serious. A consultation with Dr. Azouz and a complete medical history can rule out other causes. Once the alternative conditions are eliminated, gynecomastia surgical treatment can be scheduled.
