About Gynecomastia and Options for Treatment

The male breast is composed of glandular tissue and fatty tissue. An excess in either type of tissue can cause the chest to take on the look of gynecomastia. Gynecomastia can affect #men of all different body types. There are different types of #gynecomastia.
According to official statistics, 36% of adult young men and 57% of older #adult men in the United States have this medical condition in one of the four grades.
About 200,000 to 3 million cases of #gynecomastia are being reported every single year. So if you have #breast #enlargement and you feel you're an exception, please understand that 1 in 3 young adult #men and 1 in 2 older adult men are just like you and have breast #enlargement.
Several common factors can cause gynecomastia including excessive levels of #estrogen, natural #hormone changes, use of recreational drugs or alcohol, medications and their associated side effects, and, various health conditions. Also, there are different types of #gynecomastia.
There are three types of surgical #treatment #options available that treat gynecomastia. Your board-certified plastic surgeon will recommend the type best suited for you.
The most important decision to be made before performing any surgical procedure is determining whether you are an ideal #candidate.

Your options

I know of no FDA approved non surgical/non invasive treatment for gynecomastia. If you are seeking non surgical options for mild gynecomastia, I think that Vanquish which uses RF energy, or UltraShape that uses ultrasound rather than Cool Sculpt would be the best option though all are off FDA usage. Surgery is the best option for the vast majority of patients with gynecomastia.

Hi gaga101,

Thanks for the post and photo. In a word...no. Gynecomastia due to glandular excess needs surgery to predictably correct.  If the breast fullness is due to excess fatty tissue alone, then diet and exercise may help address the problem. Again, i repeat, there is no known medication that can predictably and definitively correct glandular gynecomastia in all patients.

Sincerely,

Dr. Dadvand

Exercise and diet

Try losing weight through a healthy diet and exercise first. This would probably be more effective than seeking alternative medical solutions. Unfortunately, if excess glandular tissue is causing your gynecomastia, surgery would be the safest and most effective solution.

Surgery is the only real option to reduce long-standing gynecomastia.

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.

Gynecomastia treatment

Once you have mature gynecomastia no medication will help.It will be a waste of your time.

If it bothers you the only effective treatment is surgical removel of the gland.

Gynecomastia

There are many causes of gynecomastia. Most of the time it is normal enlargement of breast tissue and fat. The doctor can do the appropriate endocrine work up then the treatment, if you wish, would be surgical excision and liposuction of the chest.

Gynecomastia

It will be very difficult to reduce breast volume just with meds.

Ask your doctor but hormones will also have a lot of other organs and tissues impact.

Most likely you will need a subcutaneous mastectomy.
