Gynecomastia is the term for breast enlargement in men. Although it's extremely common (it may effect as many as 50% of men), it can be the source of embarassment for many guys. In fact, according to the 2015 Statistics just released by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, treatment for gynecomastia was performed 27,456 times last year. That's a 5% increase from 2014 and 35% increase since 2000.
