There are many cures and remedies claiming to correct gynecomastia without surgery, That simply is not true. The only proven method for gynecomastia is surgery. It is important to select a surgeon carefully. Look for excellent training, a lot of experience and many before and after images.

Reducing Breast Size in Men

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.
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. 
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.

Snake oil

Gynexin is snake oil.  The company makes claims but they offer no evidence that it works.

If the problem is really just fat then weight loss can improve the appearance.

But if you really have excess glandular tissue, in 2016 surgery is the only thing that will improve gynecomastia.

Does Gynexin Work?

Hi 1527anon,

Thank you for your post. The short answer to your question is no, Gynexin does not work for true gynecomastia. I wrote a blog on this topic which can be seen on my website (The Skinny on Gynexin).

Gynexin has actually been around for a number of years. It is a natural herbal formula that targets the adipose (fat) tissue in the chest. However, it has no effect on breast tissue which is usually in excess in patients with gynecomastia.

Once glandular gynecomastia has developed the only predictable permanent treatment is surgery. While some men, especially those with excess fatty tissue (pseudogynecomastia) may have some improvement with this product, men with glandular gynecomastia will still be better served with corrective surgery.

No magic pill

Many men think taking hormones can cure gynecomastia.  However, this generally isn't the case.  There are no pills or injections one can take to shrink their breasts without causing all kinds of unwanted problems in the body.  The treatment for the most common cases of gynecomastia is surgical excision of the gland.

No Pill is FDA approved

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.

Pills Are Not Usually a Viable Option for Male Breast Reduction

For the vast majority of patients with gynecomastia, there are no pills available for treatment of this condition. In rare patients with endocrine disorders, medical treatment may be necessary. These patients usually require consultation with an endocrinologist and a comprehensive medical evaluation. In the majority of patients, the only effective treatment is surgical intervention.

This may require liposuction or surgical excision. In patients with male breast enlargement, consultation with a board-certified plastic surgeon is appropriate.

Male Breast Reduction Pill/Supplement - Total Scam

No OTC medicine reduces breast size in Men !  Stay away from supplements that claim that they can do this- it is a scam. If it worked it would have been tested and FDA approved for this usage. The only medicine that might work for Gynecomastia would be for male breast enlargement caused by an endocrine disorder. You would need to see an endocrinologist for a work up if this involves you - tyically this would occur in late childhood/adolescence but could occur later (from a Pituitary tumor producing prolactin - a hormone that makes breasts enlarge for example)
