Nevertheless, situated third in the demands and rising fast is the procedure to correct male breast enlargement, a condition much more prevalent than generally known.

Gynecomastia is a condition that is present to some degree in about a third of the male population. Gynecomastia is a term describing the condition itself, regardless of the nature of the cause leading to the development of such a problem. The condition may be pathological, physiological, or a side effect of taking certain drugs (for instance, various treatments including hormones). In any of the circumstances, patients feel uncomfortable about the way they look. Fortunately, correction is possible with male plastic surgery procedures.

Three are three general approaches to correcting gynecomastia. The first procedure is liposuction . With such a procedure, the purpose is to remove excess fatty tissue that may be causing the overall uncomfortable feeling, and reshape the breast and chest area. The second male plastic surgery procedure is a combination of surgical incisions made around the nipples to remove excess glandular and fatty tissue plus liposuction of the surrounding area to reshape and sculpture the chest area.

The third procedure is surgical breast reduction achieved by surgical incisions made in the natural skin folds of the chest and around the nipples.

    Are you trying to grow breasts or pecks? Breasts are primarily fatty tissue while pecks are muscle.

    If you want man boobs then try less exercise and eat more. Most herbs have little or no known medical use (Sadly). If you want pecks which would be better on a man then try working out and hitting the gym. To work chest try wide grip bench press with a combination of shoulder and arm workouts.

    There are two different types of male breast development. One is called Pseudogynecomastia
    and the other is called Gynecomastia.

    The first, Pseudogynecomastia, is due to fat accumulation in the chest area. This type of breast enlargement responds very well to dieting and exercising. The problem is that if you gained excessive weight and then lost it, you may find yourself with a droopy flap of skin (chest ptosis).

    The other type of breasts development, Gynecomastia, is actual breasts tissue and gland formation. In other words, real breasts development similarly to that in women. Milk production may or may not be present, but usually there’s none.

    It may be caused by hormonal imbalance, medication with estrogens or steroidal compounds, failure of the liver to inactivate circulating estrogen (as in alcoholic cirrhosis), marijuana use, hyperthyroidism, decreased testosterone production, chronic kidney disease, Klinefelter's syndrome, testicular tumors, pituitary gland tumors, and obesity which tends to increase estrogen level in the body.

    True Gynecomastia can NOT be treated with exercise and dieting. In fact, doing push ups or other exercises that develop the pectoral muscles underneath the breast tissue can make things worst. This is because the developed muscles will push the breasts tissue outward making them look bigger than they really are.

    If the problem is new, it may be treated with Selective estrogen receptor modulator medications such as Letrozole. This is a pretty effective treatment during the first 2 to 3 years of breasts development. After that period of time, the breast tissue tends to remain and harden due to maturation, leaving surgery the only treatment option. Simply put, the sooner you get treated, the better the results.

    Surgery is an option for some people but not for all. Mainly due to cost. Plastic surgery is very expensive and not everyone can affort it. There is a couple of other options. You could wear a compression garment which hides the condition, or just learn to live with it.

    I would suggest that you don’t try to diagnose yourself, but rather seek the help of a doctor. Because as I mentioned before, Gynecomastia can be caused by some serious medical conditions. I doctor can rule any of these conditions out. Good luck!
