I have male boobs. How to get rid of these?

Thank you for the question. Accurate diagnosis would necessitate physical examination. It IS important to differentiate gynecomastia ( excess breast tissue) from lipomastia ( otherwise known as pseudo-gynecomastia or excess adipose tissue of chest wall). Treatment will differ depending on diagnosis. In most cases, gynecomastia is treated with resection of the excess breast tissue; peripheral chest liposuction may also be helpful.

My best suggestion: get into the "shape" you want to be physically. Then if your chest wall is still of concern, seek consultation with board-certified plastic surgeons who can demonstrate significant experience achieving the types of outcomes you will be pleased with.

Obesity and gynecomastia

How should I choose a surgeon? Choose carefully. The decision is yours. Advice to assist in making your selection.Only a board certified plastic surgeon 1. Experience matters. Choosing a surgeon increases the likelihood that they have seen a case similar to yours in the past. Selecting a surgeon whose practice is focused on gynecomastia exclusively is also an indicator of experience. 2. Results matter. The more before-and-after pictures, the better. Pay attention whether the surgeon is confident enough to show multiple angles of the same patient. 3.Only gynecomastia Reviews matter. 4. Expertise matters. Is your surgeon recognized by the profession as an authority in the field? Have they authored books or medical journal articles regarding your surgery? Be realistic about your expectations. Also, revision surgery tends to be significantly more difficult than initial surgery.

Gynecomastia

 Photographs are essential for a question like this. Otherwise all we can do is answer in generalizations. Almost always requires surgery of some sort. It is done as an outpatient either under local or sedation type of anesthesia and can be performed to a tiny incision inside the armpit with no visible scar on the front of the chest. Make sure you consult with board certified plastic surgeons. Good luck on your decision.

How to get rid of male boobs

If you have true gynecomastia, the only way to get rid of your male boobs is gynecomastia surgery. If however, you male breasts are caused by fat alone and not breast tissue, liposuction may work for you, but that is not usually the case. Most men have a combination of breast tissue and fat. Be sure to see a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon that specializes in gynecomastia, and view many before and after pictures. Good luck!
