Many women with large breasts endure various physical discomforts such as back pain, breathing problems, and poor posture. Very often, they are also unhappy with their appearance. These women may benefit from breast reduction surgery.

In general, gynecomastia occurs from an imbalance of the two sex hormones. Men have both androgens (the hormones that control hair growth, regulate muscle size, and aid in the development of a deep voice), and estrogens (the hormone responsible for female characteristics). So, in general, estrogen levels are higher than androgens, causing a moderate increase in breast size. It is important to understand that over half of the male population develop gynecomastia during puberty.

Sometimes, gynecomastia is a result of side effects of certain medications, a natural decrease of testosterone in older males, or associated with diseases or metabolic disorders that affect male hormones.
