Summer is in full swing. Are you still wearing a shirt to the pool or beach because you are embarrassed to go shirtless? Or, do you always wearing loose shirts to hide your ‘man boobs’? The medical term for this condition that causes you so much grief, particularly in the case of enlarged mammary glands, is Gynecomastia.
What is Gynecomastia?
For men that do have Gynecomastia, it can cause considerable stress and discomfort in social situations. Gynecosmastia can be the result of too much estrogen (a female hormone) with lowered levels of testosterone (a male hormone). It is normally not a serious problem, which means it could possibly just go away on its own or… could persist and in turn, become a case of clinical Gynecomastia.
What can be done?
You have three options. 1) You can purchase a compression shirt that could possibly serve as a girdle. 2) To get rid of the extra weight, you can follow a very strict regimen of consistently working out and a lean diet. 3) You can have a mammoplasty.
The absolute most effective and lasting way to eliminate Gynecomastia permanently is cosmetic surgery. For some men, Gynecomastia isn’t essentially a weight issue but more a glandular matter. In the medical world, the procedure to get rid of Gynecomastia is called reduction mammoplasty. A qualified surgeon can assess the breasts and remove the excess tissue. It is imperative to fully understand that male breast reduction surgery, like any surgery, has its risks.
