Gynecomastia is mostly genetic for women. Pregnancy, fluctuations in body weight and breastfeeding can cause the expansion and sagginess of the breast too. Excessive growth of breasts leads to constant neck and back pains, obstruction for physical exercises and putting on certain outfits and to deformity on the shoulders because of the pressure of bra straps. Breast reduction surgery is administered to give breasts balance, and to solve problems.
