How to get rid of Man Boobs?

Man Boobs refer to the condition of males having enlarged breast tissues, resulting in a more feminine-like appearance of the chest. Whether you call it man boobs or gynecomastia, having excess breast tissue can be a source of frustration and self-consciousness for many men.

If you think you’re also suffering from this problem, then read on to learn about what it is, what are its causes, and what you can do to get rid of it.

What are Man Boobs?

It is the unwanted enlargement of male breast tissue so that the fat accumulates on the chest, and men end up looking like they have female breasts. Although these don’t have any medical risks, they do result in mental and emotional problems like anxiety, self-consciousness, and a lack of confidence.


What causes Man Boobs?

Do you think that only excess weight causes man boobs? False.

While excess weight can contribute to the appearance of “man boobs,” the root cause of gynecomastia is often linked to hormonal imbalances, not solely insulin resistance. Hormonal fluctuations, rather than weight issues alone, play a significant role in the development of this condition.

    Gynecomastia Surgery

    If you are seeking permanent results, it is advised that you consult a board-certified plastic surgeon and understand the requisites and procedures. Gynecomastia surgery removes the excess fat from your chest and transforms your upper body to create the appearance you want.

    The journey begins with a consultation with a board-certified plastic surgeon specializing in gynecomastia surgery. During your consultation, discuss your goals, concerns, and realistic expectations with your surgeon.

    During the procedure, your surgeon will make a 4-5 mm incision on the side of the chest, under the armpits and carefully remove the glandular tissue of the breast and excess fat. Thus, the resulting scars always remain hidden. Advanced equipment such as MicroAire, Vaser, and BodyTite are also employed to give the optimal results. One notable advantage of this approach is that the scars on both sides of the chest are small and unnoticeable.

    After surgery, you will be required to wear compression garments for 3-4 weeks to assist in the healing process and minimize swelling. Additionally, you may experience some discomfort and bruising, which should subside within a few weeks. While some results are immediate, full outcomes become apparent once swelling and bruising subside. Patience is key as your body adjusts to its new contours.

    If you’re also finding a permanent solution for your man boobs, and are looking for possibilities of gynecomastia surgery, then consult with your surgeon about the gynecomastia procedures. A consultation with a qualified surgeon is an opportunity to get personalized advice and answers to your questions.
