How to get rid of gynecomastia

Seeing the development of male chests or man boobs is truly an uncomfortable or distressing situation in any man’s life. It is a medical condition that arises in men of any age for many reasons. In simple words, there are many causes for this to occur. Irrespective of the medical aspects and causes, from the patient’s viewpoint, he wants to know how to get rid of gynecomastia. On that note, this blog post can be an eye-opener for all those men who want to reduce their enlarged breasts.

To explore the detailed causes, read this article by the Tamira Scientific Committee!    

First things first!

Before we directly get into the different ways to reduce male chests, let’s quickly brush up on the symptoms of gynecomastia. Nipple sensitivity, fluid discharge, enlarged breasts, tenderness, or pain are some of the major symptoms of this condition. If you’re a male experiencing these signs, it means you have to immediately undergo a medical diagnosis of gynecomastia by a certified doctor or surgeon.  

If diagnosed, how can you overcome these male chests?

Well, there are both surgical and non-surgical ways to get a shot at this condition. But it all depends on what has caused this unwanted development of chests in male patients. For example, if the development of chests is due to over-accumulation or deposition of fat cells, it does not require male chest reduction surgery. Alternatively, if the development is due to the growth of mammary glands, then surgical removal of the same is recommended. 

Now, you may doubt, “Can gynecomastia go away on its own?.” Yes, there are chances. If the cause relates to physiological changes or hormonal imbalances during birth or puberty, it usually fades away on its own once things are normalized and balanced. In such a case, it can go away without any medical interference.     

What are the natural ways to get rid of gynecomastia?

Consuming healthy and nutrient-rich foods, ensuring an active lifestyle, stopping the consumption of alcohol or substances, reducing excess body fat through workouts, avoiding the use of steroids or other drugs, and taking herbal medications or supplements for hormonal balance are some of the natural ways to treat this concern. However, there is no scientific evidence to prove the effectiveness of these options. 

So, do not worry if these non-surgical options for gynecomastia do not work for you. Either you need surgical treatment or these natural methods do not work for you in particular. After all, every individual is unique and you may need personalized care or treatment options.      

How about the surgical treatment for gynecomastia?

As mentioned earlier, for those men who have developed male breasts due to undesired growth of breast tissues, like in females, surgery is the best option. In this surgery, the plastic surgeon removes the excess breast tissues or the glands through a tiny incision. If the patient also has fat accumulated, a liposuction may also be performed to remove the excess fat from the chest region.     

Though surgery for gynecomastia is a cost-effective and easiest solution, most men are hesitant to take this up. Several factors confuse them and here is a chance for you to clarify your doubts. Check out the FAQs here on this page!

The best treatment does not solely depend on the surgical expertise of the cosmetic surgeon or the facilities of the clinic where you’re undergoing the surgery. Certainly, it begins with the stage of chest analysis, physiological tests, understanding of body fat, etc., and the way the surgeon recommends the best possible solution to the patient.
