Is Male Breast Reduction Possible with a Pill? or Without Surgery?

Has Gynexin worked for some men who want to reduce their chest/breasts. Who would it work for?

The Skinny on Gynexin

Thanks for your post. This topic comes up in posts quite frequently. Gynexin, in short, does not work for gynecomastia. Although it may have some effect on fatty tissue, it has absolutely no effect on excess breast tissue, which is what gynecomastia is. I would refer you to my blog post on this very subject.

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.

Pills for gynecomastia?

I'd avoid potions and pills to manage gynecomastia.  There is really no evidence to support safety or efficacy.  The safest and most reliable method to reduce gynecomastia is surgery with gland excision.

Surgery safest and most effective

I would not recommend any pill or supplements that say they can address gynecomastia, since it there are none that are FDA approved. The safest and most effective method is surgery.

There is no known effective non-surgical treatment for gynecomastia.  As the saying goes, "if it sounds too good to be true......."

 Thank you for the question.

As far as I am aware there is no good nonsurgical way to treat gynecomastia.

It is often best treated with  partial excision of the prominent glandular tissue  as well as liposuction surgery of the peripheral chest area.  If the prominence of the chest wall is caused by adipose tissue, then liposculpture surgery alone may suffice.

I would strongly suggest that you make sure you are working with a well experienced board-certified plastic surgeon. You will find that this recommendation will be more important than any specific “miracle technology”  or  “miracle pill” that you will undoubtedly hear about.

I hope this helps.

Nonsurgical gynecomastia treatment

Breast tissue must be excised If the tissue is glandular, then a formal excision is required; if it is fatty, liposuction will remove it. The only "pill" treatment would be in the event that the condition is of endocrinologic origin, in which case a full hormonal workup and treatment would be indicated. All the marketed products are supplements which are not FDA approved or sanctioned so buyer beware.

Nonsurgical Options for Gynecomasrtia

If your gynecomastia is caused by a medical problem, then correcting that problem reverses the male breast growth as long as it has not been present for more than a year.  The vast majority of the time male breast enlargement has no underlying medical problem.  The product "Gynexin" is not an FDA approved product.  I do not know any scientific studies that proove its efficacy.  I suspect its another "smoke and mirrors" hype. If you desire to have your gynecomastia correceted, find a surgeon certified by the American Board of Plastic Surfgery with experience in this procedure.

There is no useful pharmacologic treatment for gynecomastia.There are several rare diseases that may cause gynecomastia such as a pituitary tumor. In general the majority of cases are idiopathic in nature ( unknown cause).With respect to Gynexin  go to the mall this weekend take thirty dollar bills throw them in the air and watch the people run around after them. You will get a good laugh and save about 35 dollars.
