For males, few body issues are more embarrassing than living with unusually large breasts. For the countless men who suffer from gynecomastia (the medical term for male enlarged breasts), this "womanly" feature can cause social anxiety and low self-esteem. Many men with this affliction often go to great lengths to avoid being seen without a shirt or in a tight-fitting top that would reveal the appearance of the breasts.
Seeking Help: Gynecomastia Treatment Options
When all the chest-strengthening and weight loss exercises in the world don't seem to help, it may be time to seek help from a medical professional familiar with treating the symptoms of gynecomastia. Many different treatment options exist, from vitamin supplements and topical creams to light-based therapies. Male breast reduction surgery is an invasive procedure, and many men are interested in non-surgical, less invasive treatments. Talk to Dr. Sheena Kong in a private consultation, and she will recommend a treatment plan that does not involve surgery.
