Doctors Say Don't Waste Your Money on Gynexin for Man Boobs

The internet is full of ads for Gynexin, a pill that promises to reduce the size of man boobs. Though enlarged male breasts, also known as gynecomastia, are a problem commonly treated by plastic surgery, who wouldn’t prefer to fix their physical flaws in the form of a pill? Alas, if it sounds too good to be true, that’s because it is.

Strapped for cash, RealSelf reader tamilmale’s hopes were high when he asked the doctors whether Gynexin would do the trick for his gynecomastia. Dr. Miguel Delgado Jr. acknowledges how much nicer it would be to have a non-surgical option, but stresses that, while research is under way to find such a cure, “no effective medical treatment actually exists at this time.”

Dr. Mordcai Blau has had patients who have tried Gynexin before coming to his office. The majority of them were not satisfied with the results, thus wound up in his office and opted for surgery. Furthermore, Dr. B. Pat Pazmino cautions that the FDA has not approved Gynexin and other such pills, so taking them “may have serious consequences.”

So while Gynexin may bill itself as a wonder pill, until a drug is created that actually can do what it promises, all the doctors who answered tamilmale agree that the best bet is to have a male breast reduction. Fortunately, most men seem to be happy with this option, at 7 out of 10 members of our community thought it was Worth It.
