Non-Surgical Gynecomastia Remedies

According to Dr. Robert Caridi of Austin Gynecomastia Center, there is no such thing!

Non-surgical remedies are not effective treatments for established gynecomastia. The internet is loaded with non-surgical gynecomastia solutions because who wouldn’t prefer a non-surgical remedy to gynecomastia? There is money to be made on this vulnerable group of consumers: the market will fill you with incredible success stories, enticing photographs, great testimonials and provide you with hope.

Unfortunately, the reality of the situation is entirely different. Gynecomastia is a unique problem only effectively treated with a surgical procedure to remove problematic gynecomastia tissue. Non-surgical treatments like BodyTite, VelaSmooth, and Thermage will not improve your gynecomastia. Diet, exercise, and medications will not help you. These are all a waste of time and money.

Do I have gynecomastia, or is it just fat?

Once you realize that you may have gynecomastia, the internet becomes the source of information to clarify issues.

Unfortunately, there is a lot of misinformation and downright wrong information out there. Pseudogynecomastia is a term that means “false gynecomastia”. This refers to gynecomastia consisting of fatty tissue, and the treatment for this excess is simple weight loss. However, it is never “just fatty tissue”. No matter how much weight a person loses, it will not go away and often looks worse! This is so because gynecomastia tissue is very real and made from fat, gland, and fibrous tissue.

What is the relationship between gynecomastia and obesity or significant weight gain? This is a very interesting question; however, it is poorly studied. We all know that when we gain weight, it travels to all parts of our bodies, including our chests. What likely happens is that this excessive fatty tissue is mixed in with the hormonally sensitive tissue under our nipples. Over time, a localized imbalance in sex hormones causes the growth of actual gynecomastia tissue. Once established, it doesn’t go away with weight loss.

What is Pseudogynecomastia?

The term pseudogynecomastia is confusing and misleading, and it should not be used.

It gives people hope that weight loss will cure their gynecomastia, which couldn’t be further from the truth. Even medical professionals misuse this term. Simply put, if you have the appearance of gynecomastia, it is gynecomastia, and the only option for effective treatment is the removal of the tissue. Dr. Caridi has heard from thousands of men from all over the globe who have lost a great deal of weight and told him that it made things worse.

When Is The Best Time To Fix Your Gynecomastia?

Gynecomastia typically results from tissue that forms at puberty and fails to go away (age 9-13). If it has been present for over two years and hasn’t improved, it is established, firm gynecomastia and will not go away without proper gynecomastia surgery.

It’s always best to treat gynecomastia before it starts to do damage to your psyche. This usually begins in the school environment with bullying and teasing. The consequences could mean confusion, withdrawal, and maladaptive behaviors. The longer the insult, the more the damage. Therefore, it is entirely appropriate for patients as young as 15 to seek treatment for their gynecomastia. Parental involvement and understanding of the issues involved are essential. As a rule, the sooner you treat your gynecomastia, the better.

Frequently Asked Questions

What pills can treat gynecomastia?

The short answer is none. Pills can’t treat gynecomastia effectively. Gynecomastia results from a hormonal imbalance (usually from puberty) and involves several different excess tissues, making it impossible to resolve without surgery.

Is there a topical medication for gynecomastia?

No, unfortunately, there is no effective topical treatment for gynecomastia.

What is the best treatment for gynecomastia in a teenager?

Because the emotional impact of gynecomastia can be especially severe in adolescent years, teenagers suffering from this condition can immensely benefit from gynecomastia surgery. Gynecomastia surgery is very well tolerated and provides a permanent solution to this prevalent yet embarrassing problem, and prevents teenagers from being bullied due to their condition.

Can you treat gynecomastia with diet and exercise?

No. Because gynecomastia is never “just fat,” a healthy lifestyle alone cannot resolve gynecomastia. In fact, weight loss can make gynecomastia significantly more noticeable.

Can you treat gynecomastia with non-surgical fat reduction?

No, non-surgical fat reduction treatments cannot effectively treat gynecomastia as they do not address excess glandular tissue.

What is the fastest way to get rid of gynecomastia?

Gynecomastia can be eliminated in a single surgery, offering the most efficient and only effective treatment for gynecomastia.

What is expected from gynecomastia surgery?

Gynecomastia surgery is a well-tolerated procedure that may sometimes be performed under local anesthesia. Depending on the severity of the condition, the procedure may involve:

  • Sculpting the chest through liposuction
  • Removing glandular tissue from behind the nipple
  • Removing excess skin (in severe weight loss cases)

Recovery and discomfort after gynecomastia surgery are relatively minimal, with patients returning to work as soon as the following day. See full gynecomastia recovery instructions here or watch this video to know what to expect.

What is the best treatment for gynecomastia?

Due to the combination of factors and tissues that contribute to the appearance of breasts on the male chest, surgical treatment offers the only effective solution to gynecomastia. Unfortunately, non-surgical solutions almost invariably leave patients disappointed and their condition untreated.
