Pumping weights is great, but not if you have untreated gynecomastia
If you have true gynecomastia, with breast tissue causing protrusion of your nipple areola complex, building up your pec muscles through weight training will only push the breast tissue farther out and make your condition look worse. HOWEVER, building up muscle tissue is always a good thing, and my best gynecomastia results are in patients who have built up their pec muscles. Once the breast tissue is gone, they have great chest wall muscle definition.

About Gynecomastia and the Treatment Options
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.
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. Weight, and more specifically body mass index (BMI), need to be considered when deciding. For instance, studies have shown that patients with BMI > 30kg/m sq (placing them in the obese category) have a higher complication rate. Therefore, it is important for patients to be as close as possible to their normal body weight prior to surgery.
Not only will this decrease risks of complications, but will also enhance the aesthetic results. Further, normal body weight is different from one patient to another.
