Gynecomastia has been increasing in prevalence among the male population in the United States, but experts are still not entirely sure which factors cause the condition., Accordingly, men are now becoming more aware of ways to achieve a more masculine look.

Online PR News – 20-June-2012 – Orlando,Florida – Gynecomastia, a condition enlarging male breasts, affects up to two-thirds of pubescent boys and half of all men, according to recent research. Traditionally, men have not maintained high awareness of the issue. However, slowly but surely, that trend is changing and Orlando Plastic Surgery Center is doing what it can to help.

“Gynecomastia is caused by an imbalance between testosterone and male estrogen. As you may know, men have a certain level of estrogen. Women certainly have much more. But men have estrogen as well.

There can be different factors that can cause this,” said Dr. George Pope, Orlando Plastic Surgery Center’s board certified surgeon.
