Muscle Building And Gynecomastia

Jun 19, 2008
Gynecomastia (or man boobs/male breasts) has increased in occurrence over the last decade. Highly traumatic, yet poorly understood, gynecomastia is extremely common in men aged 15-24. Even though it is extremely common, there is still no good treatment for gynecomastia in the medical field. However, all is not without hope, as there are many other very effective treatment options available. Of course, the key to treating gynecomastia is to understand the condition and the causes behind it.

Gynecomastia Causes

Usually, a fatty diet is blamed as the source of gynecomastia. The often missed, but important factor behind man boobs involves more than just a fat-laden diet. While increased amounts of fat could possibly result in 'fat deposits', there are many men who are not over-weight who still gain fat around their nipples making it look like they have gynecomastia. In most cases, the most important factor resulting in in male breasts is a disturbance in the hormone levels. This hormonal imbalance is usually found in men with little to no exercise, and an overall poor diet. It makes sense then that, though it may appear that excess fat is the culprit, this is false.

Man Boob Symptoms

As phrases such as man boobs or male breasts would indicate, gynecomastia is marked as the condition where a man with little to no medical problems experiences an increasing amount of fat deposits under the breasts specifically around the nipples, making it look like female-breasts. While the fatty male breasts often coincide with fat content elsewhere on the body, in more than a few cases, they may be much larger than is proportional, which can be a reason for widespread derision and distress.

Treatment For Gynecomastia

Many treatment options for gynecomastia have been offered, most of which are ineffective and even counter-effective:

1. The Knife - This option is used by many men who have very little hope left. Permissible amounts of fat are surgically removed after surgically opening the breasts. Though this may seem to have treated gynecomastia, it doesn't work in the long run. On top of this, there is a risk of developing permanent scar tissue underneath (which means permanent man boobs) shows this to be a poor option. It costs a lot, and like all surgeries, carries additional risks.

2. Prescription Drugs and Medication - These are often prescribed even though their effectiveness is widely disputed. The high costs and possible side effects make this a less-than-ideal option for most.

3. Condition Maskers - This category is comprised of everything that doesn't help with gynecomastia, but is designed simply to prevent public embarrassment from it. A good example of a masker is the gynecomastia vest, which works in a manner very similar to a corssette. Of course, this wouldn't work on a beach or while swimming when one cannot wear the vest.

4. Exercises for getting rid of man boobs - Though these work, one needs to have a good knowledge of which ones work, and pursue them diligently. Additionally, this may not directly help with the gynecomastia resulting from excessive hormonal imbalance and can essentially only help with developing muscle in the chest.

The ideal treatment is to apply a treatment system that makes use of the right supplements, the right exercises, and the right diet corrections in an organized plan that effectively helps cure man boobs.
