I am a 32 year old man with a slim build and am happy with how I look, until I take my shirt off. I am self-conscious when I go to the pool or lake because I feel like everyone is staring at my chest. I have heard that men can have male breasts, lately it seems to be getting worse. What can I do Dr. Kenkel?

Gynecomastia or male breast enlargement is very common during adolescence.
The majority of men go on to “grow” out of it.
In some, there may be persistence of breast tissue into adult life.
In others, breast fullness may be a result of fatty tissue accumulating there.
Treatment may involve liposuction with or without a small incision to remove persistent firm tissue.
It is a day surgery procedure and usually allows one to go back to work within a few days.
