Understanding Gynecomastia

Gynecomastia is the appearance of female-like breasts in a male. The cause is an imbalance of hormones that occurs for various reasons (puberty, medications, weight gain, medical conditions, and performance substances, among others). The condition is benign, with the onset usually gradual, and can be associated with pain. The appearance varies considerably. The diagnosis is made on examination and appearance. It’s obvious when your chest has female-looking features or if you have puffy nipples (dome-shaped and pointy).

If you suspect you have gynecomastia, no workup or analysis is necessary, and no lab tests or scans are helpful. The easiest way to find out is to submit an online consultation to the Austin Gynecomastia Center. I will help you determine if you have gynecomastia and what is the most effective treatment possible.

The Impact of Gynecomastia

Gynecomastia results in an unappealing change in the shape of the male chest that causes concern, anxiety, and, eventually, poor habits that diminish your quality of life. Poor posture, wearing very loose clothing, and avoidance behaviors (no pools, beaches, or lakes in your plans) are but a few of the negative psychological consequences of gynecomastia.

Treatment Options

The great news is that gynecomastia is a treatable condition. Surgical treatment is the ONLY effective solution. It would be nice if it could be managed with a pill, but this is not the case. Weight loss only makes it appear worse, and exercise isn’t the answer either.
