Pseudogynecomastia - What Is It? Does It Go Away With Weight Loss?

What Is Pseudogynecomastia? Does Gynecomastia Go Away With Weight Loss?

I’m fortunate to have treated several thousand patients with gyno surgery at the Austin Gynecomastia Center. Beyond the physical symptoms of gynecomastia, there simply isn’t much scientific research addressing the true cause of this condition, other than the basic observation that almost all patients have an imbalance of the sex hormones estrogen and testosterone.

I came across this picture and realized the importance of sharing my professional insight on chest contouring to treat the fullness of the lateral chest.
