How to Reduce Gynecomastia?

How to Reduce Gynecomastia?

Many men are all too familiar with this condition, and would like to find out how to reduce Gynecomastia symptoms. In fact, as many as half of the men in the population are victims of this condition which involves an excess growth of fatty tissue over their chest.

We will examine the causes and treatments to address how to reduce Gynecomastia symptoms.

Reasons

To understand how to reduce the symptoms of the condition, it is important to look at the potential causes of it. When a man’s chest begins to take on a more feminine form, there may be many contributing factors.

These factors contribute to an imbalance in sex hormones which causes the growth. When estrogen levels (a group of hormones which contribute to the growing of female features) outweigh the androgen levels (male hormones), a man experiences the growth of a larger chest.

The occurrence of excess estrogen may be due to a malfunctioning in the body’s physiology, or side effects from drugs used in the treatment of high blood pressure or heart disease.

Non-Surgical Treatments

Now to solving the problem. In order to treat this condition and reduce the fatty tissues in the male chest, these non-surgical measures should be taken initially.

  • First and foremost, the diet should be examined. The way a person eats, will directly influence their hormone and fatty tissue composition.  One way to reduce the effects of Gynecomastia is by maintaining disciplined eating habits.These habits should include healthy, whole and nutritious foods. The first step should be removing high saturated fats, processed foods and refined ingredients, and then replacing them with more fruits and vegetables, whole grain choices and food containing healthy fats.
  • Another helpful activity is exercise. The recommended exercises include chest-focused work outs that will tighten the muscles; like push-ups for example.  Over time this can help to flatten the chest. In addition, a daily 45 minute cardio workout can help to burn excess fat in the area.

The Surgical Treatment

In the case that all of the above treatments do not reduce the male’s symptoms, a surgical procedure is another option. Also, patients may opt for surgery to achieve quick and assured results.

The surgical treatment method involves removing the excessive cluster of tissues which from over the chest.  The gynecomastia surgery begins with the administration of either general or local anaesthesia, depending on the patient’s age and the type of incision.

The whole procedure only takes between 1 and 2 hours generally. The surgeons will mark the areas that will be worked on, use a small incision to remove the excess fat and carry out liposuction.

In some cases, the breast tissues must be cut open to remove the tissue. Conveniently, an endoscope can be used to examine the area without the surgeon having to make a large incision.

In order to learn more about this procedure, or take the next steps toward undergoing it, contact a doctor at the hospital by calling 934 382 6182, or visit the website: https://www.bangaloregenesishospital.com/gynecomastia-surgery-male-breast-reduction-bangalore-india/
