Gynaecomastia (GM) is a benign proliferation of the glandular tissue of the male breast and results from an imbalance between androgen and oestrogen. Pubertal GM is found in 50% and often resolves spontaneously without treatment. GM in adult men can be the first symptom of an underlying disease, and thorough investigation is recommended. Treatment of an underlying cause of GM is the first-line treatment. If GM persists, surgical excision with liposuction can provide excellent results and a low rate of complications.
