How can I get rid of gynecomastia? I'm 26.

I have this condition called gynecomastia and it's really embarrassing. I have tried all the exercises in the world and my chest doesn't change a bit. I don't know if you can help, but what am I suppose to do to get rid of gynecomastia? Is everyone who has this problem getting a surgery? Are there any other options, like lipo for breasts?

Very mild gynecomastia sometimes responds to CoolSclulpting, if the tissue is mostly fatty, but true gynecomastia that is moderate or severe usually can only be treated by surgery.  

Established gynecomastia (ie present for more than two years) can only be treated by surgery. There are no pills, hormones, injections, creams, etc which will help.  You can find out lots more about gynecomastia by going to an excellent online forum, www.gynecomastia.org    You can also pose questions there and receive helpful advice from other guys with the problem and also from surgeons who sub-specialize in gynecomastia.

 

You can also visit my website which is exclusively devoted to gynecomastia.  You will get a lot of information there as well.  www.gynecomastianewyork.com

 

Good luck!

Lipo and direct excision are most commonly used to treat gynecomastia. See your board certified plastic surgeon for additional information and guidance, as treatment varies depending on the extent of gynecomastia. Also we want to make sure there's nothing unusual causing it.
