Gynecomastia treatment without surgery may not work for everyone, but in my experience, it does work for the vast majority of guys.
See, there are just a handful of guys who can only get rid of their man boobs via surgery. These are guys who have developed excessively large female breast glands due to prolonged exposure to high levels of the female hormone estrogen.
Over time, these breast glands harden by undergoing a process called ‘fibrosis’. When this happens, the only way to get rid of the breast glands is under the knife – through surgical resection. The good news though, is that most guys either have excess chest fat minus the glands, or they have both excess chest fat and the glands. Guys with just excess chest fat can lose their man boobs completely using natural methods.
If you have chest fat with breast glands, then you can significantly reduce the size of your man boobs using natural methods. Once you’ve flattened out your chest as much as you can, you can then think about having surgery.
But in most cases, losing the excess chest fat is all you need.
A little excess breast tissue behind the nipples is hardly an issue for most guys. You can only really notice them when those breast glands are abnormally large. Regardless of what type of man boobs you have, anyone with any form of man boobs will benefit by learning about gynecomastia treatment without surgery, since even your surgeon will tell you that such methods (which include exercise, diet and weight reduction) are required to prevent gynecomastia from returning after surgery.
Gynecomastia Treatment Without Surgery – Working Tactics
Getting a masculine, flat chest using natural methods alone involves finding and eliminating the cause of gynecomastia. Regardless of whether or not a medical disease is at fault, gynecomastia is usually the result of elevated female sex hormones, namely estrogen. So if for any reason your body’s estrogen levels are elevated continuously for prolonged periods of time (or testosterone is lowered), your body will respond by developing breasts, in just the same way that women develop breasts during puberty.
The reason us guys look different from women, is due to the roles that both estrogen and testosterone play in the body. Normally, an adult male has up to 10 times more testosterone than an adult female. This elevated testosterone (and low estrogen) is what prevents us guys from developing breasts, and instead gives us extra body hair, deep voices, increased muscle mass, and superior intelligence (shhh don’t tell any woman I said that).
Sadly, this hormone balance plays far too big a role in deciding our masculine characteristics than we would like. If either one of these hormones is altered, it can quite easily lead to the development of breasts in men.
There are a vast range of different factors that can change either one of these hormones and result in breast development. These can fall into any of the following categories: health-related issues, certain medical drugs, everyday exposure to hormone-altering chemicals, hormonal fluctuations that happen during puberty, unknown causes (25% of cases).
If you really are considering undergoing gynecomastia treatment without surgery I advise you to go and see your doctor to first rule out any serious medical causes for your gynecomastia. Your doctor will also examine your breasts to see if there is any hard breast tissue, which, as I mentioned, may require surgical resection.
Though there’s a small chance for a medical cause, it’s most likely that your man boobs were triggered by environmental factors. Before taking medical drugs, or even thinking about having surgery, those guys whose man boobs are not caused by a medical illness would greatly benefit by first attempting to reduce their gynecomastia through natural avoidance of environmental triggers.
Addressing the environmental factors that cause hormonal fluctuations leading to man boobs, is still important even if your doctor tells you you need surgery. You must reduce your man boobs first using natural methods BEFORE you have surgery, otherwise your man boobs will just grow back AFTER surgery.
I won’t lie to you and tell you that pharmaceutical drugs don’t work. They actually do work pretty well, but it’s not the safest nor the healthiest option, since you can achieve a perfectly flat chest through natural methods alone.
Many natural methods are indeed more powerful than medical drugs. In the modern world, estrogen is widely used in almost EVERYTHING. Estrogen-like particles called “xenoestrogens” are commonly found in our water supply (where they are completely unfiltered) and almost all processed foods. They are used in fertilizers and pesticides to treat our crops, used as preservatives to increase the shelf-life of produce, and used directly to promote growth and increased milk production in livestock.
One important aspect of gynecomastia treatment without surgery, is to reduce your body’s exposure to these environmental estrogens.
It’s also important to utilize other male-breast-reduction methods that actively pull estrogen away from your body, and methods that increase levels of the male hormone testosterone. Such tactics involve the control of your diet and specialized exercises that are known to control the circulation of sex hormones in your body.
It’s also important to know that there is more to losing man boobs than just diet and exercise. To learn about these methods, I suggest you take a look at How to Lose Man Boobs Naturally.
