Many men suffer from gynecomastia, a condition where the males chest becomes puffy and bloated, resembling women’s breasts. The man’s nipples can also be very sensitive, almost painful and will frequently have a cone like shape as well. Typically the condition is thought of in connection with overweight men, however gynecomastia can strike any male. As you can imagine it is a very embarrassing condition that can sorely affect a man’s self confidence. Fortunately there are ways to combat gynecomastia and below you’ll find three cures for gynecomastia.
1. The most extreme method of getting rid of gynecomastia is through cosmetic surgery. Unfortunately it’s also the first way that most men think of. Plastic surgeons are capable of removing gynecomastia although the success rate is not as high as some would like. In addition, it is an expensive procedure and will cost between $4000 and $10,000 depending on a variety of factors. The degree of gynecomastia, the city you live in and of course the doctor you use will all have an effect on the cost of gynecomastia surgery. If you’re considering gynecomastia surgery don’t let the cost make you choose a cheaper and less experienced doctor. It is a difficult procedure and you want to have the most experienced surgeon possible. Poor surgery can result in scarring, asymmetry of the chest and even further surgeries so please choose carefully if you decide to use surgery to rid yourself of gynecomastia.
2. A second method of removing gynecomastia is through hormonal therapy. Typically the anti-estrogen drug Nolvadex, also known as Nolva, is prescribed by the doctor to lower the level of estrogen in the males body. It is the excess estrogen that often will lead to gynecomastia and by ridding the body of estrogen we can sometimes shrink the existing gynecomastia. Reports from men that have gone this route report varying degrees of success and finding a doctor to prescribe it for you could be difficult as the medical profession is not nearly as accepting of Nolvadex as a cure for gynecomastia as the athletic community is. If you frequent gyms it’s quite likely you already know or have heard stories of men who started getting gynecomastia and quickly reversed it with Nolvadex. Keep in mind that this cure works best for gynecomastia that has just developed, but some have reported that Nolvadex can alleviate gynecomastia that has been present for years.
3. Your third, and possibly best, option is to combat the gynecomastia with diet and exercise. While there can be some glandular swelling, for most gynecomastia is simply an accumulation of fat in the chest area. By controlling diet and increasing exercise you can easily rid yourself of excess fat deposits and shrink the size of your man boobs. If you look at before and after photos of those who took on a diet and training regimine you’ll often notice that one effect is the disappearance of any gynecomastia. This is really the best and safest route to removing gynecomastia and for preventing it’s recurrence. It’s cheaper than surgery and also safer and it’s safer than manipulating your hormones as well. And not only will you get rid of your gynecomastia, but you’ll improve your health and body overall, giving yourself more energy and a sexy new look.
