Weight loss may or may not affect gynecomastia.

Gynecomastia is a combination of excess glandular tissue and fat. If a substantial percentages fat weight reduction may actually create a significant difference.

Reducing the Gynecomastia Breast Naturally

If your enlarged breasts are caused by fat alone, weight loss will make a difference. If however your male breasts are caused by fat and breast tissue, losing weight will only get rid of the fat leaving breast tissue behind. Then your only option will be surgery. Good Luck!

How to reduce man breasts naturally

Weight loss would really be the only way to reduce your breasts if it is predominately fat.  After weight loss, if you still have breasts, it is most likely breast tissue and you would need to have that surgically removed.  Gynecomastia procedure is typically an excision of breast tissue with liposuction so going to a consultation for an in-office exam is really the best way to find out what procedure would be the best option for you.  ac

Gynecomastia

It is possible that you could see some reduction of the size of your breast by weight reduction if it is primarily fat,  but any other non surgical method would be of no value.

How to Reduce Man Breast Naturally?

                Liposuction or direct excision can help remove the breast tissue and fat.  With weight loss, the breast tissue will persist.   Find a plastic surgeon with ELITE credentials who performs hundreds of body contouring procedures and male breast reductions each year.  Then look at the plastic surgeon's website before and after photo galleries to get a sense of who can deliver the results.

Weight reduction may help

If your skin quality is good, weight reduction may significantly improve your chest appearance without surgery.  Unfortunately, large gynecomastias often have had the skin stretch beyond its ability to contract to a normal dimensions and surgical reduction is required to achieve a masculine form.  Consultation with a plastic surgeon would be worthwhile to explore your surgical options.

Some photos would be helpful.As a general rule gynecomastia is composed of both fat and glandular tissue.Weight reduction alone will not solve the problem.
