Male breast enlargement, known as Gynecomastia, is a condition in which men develop excess chest tissue that is more breast-like in nature. This condition is usually treated with surgery to reduce the mass of the tissue in the breasts. Although there are some non-surgical options for gynecomastia treatment, they do not always correct the problem. On the other hand, surgery for Gynecomastia offers an immediate solution and can eliminate the breast tissue, improving the chest’s masculine look.

What are the causes of gynecomastia?: Gynecomastia treatment without surgery

Many things can contribute to the development of gynecomastia, including lifestyle factors like drinking too much alcohol or exercising little, underlying disease, ageing, and side effects of some medications.

The sex hormone testosterone has an inhibitory effect on the development of breast tissue, while the sex hormones estrogen and progesterone have a stimulating effect in the presence of growth hormone and insulin-like growth factor 1.

The following factors may lead to an imbalance of these hormones in people with penises who may not otherwise develop gynecomastia.

Ageing: Gynecomastia treatment without surgery

Testosterone naturally drops as you get older starting roughly at the age of 30. Studies of men over 65 years have found that gynecomastia usually appears due to lower testosterone levels. Other studies have found that 24 to 65 per cent of men between the ages of 50 to 80 have gynecomastia.

Older people with penises are also more likely to be taking medications that may cause gynecomastia as a side effect.

Puberty: Gynecomastia treatment without surgery

About 60 per cent of young people with penises have signs of gynecomastia by age 14 due to hormonal changes during puberty.

Gynecomastia resulting from changes that happen during puberty tends to resolve without treatment within three years.

A high percentage of body fat: Gynecomastia treatment without surgery

Having an overall high body fat percentage at any weight can lead to increased fat storage around the chest. Having a higher body fat percentage is also linked to higher estrogen levels.

Fat tissue is the major tissue where testosterone is converted into estrogen by the enzyme aromatase. About 85 per cent of the estrogen in the body of a person with a penis comes from the activity of this enzyme.

Health conditions: Gynecomastia treatment without surgery

Health conditions that cause changes to testosterone and estrogen levels can potentially lead to the development of excess breast tissue. Some of these conditions include:

  • trauma, tumours, or disease of the testes
  • hyperthyroidism
  • kidney failure
  • liver failure
  • malnutrition
  • tumours of the pituitary gland or hypothalamus

Drugs and medications: Gynecomastia treatment without surgery

About 20 per cent of cases of gynecomastia are caused by drugs or medications.

Some drugs have estrogen-like properties, increase estrogen production, or supply your body with substances like testosterone that can be transformed into estrogen. Other types of drugs lead to the development of gynecomastia for unknown reasons.

Use of the following is linked to gynecomastia:

  • alcohol
  • drugs such as heroin, methadone, and amphetamines
  • anabolic steroids
  • some medications used to treat HIV
  • some antihypertensive medications
  •  psychoactive drugs such as antipsychotics

Non-surgical Treatment Options: Gynecomastia treatment without surgery

There are various non-surgical approaches to male breast reduction. Some of the methods include:

  • Dieting and exercising. Maintaining a proper diet and exercise can help balance hormones and burn fat tissue.
  • Stopping the use of drugs or steroids. Steroids and certain drugs can increase the risk of male breast enlargement.
  • Reducing alcohol intake. Alcohol intake can increase the risk of male breast enlargement.
  • Hormone treatments. Hormonal imbalances lead to male breast development, and hormone balancing treatment options may help to minimize the appearance of breast enlargement.
  • Losing weight. Losing weight may help to decrease the size of the breast. This may work well for men who need to lose a lot of weight, but may not eliminate all of the excess breast tissue.

For some men, these non-invasive treatment options may work to reduce the appearance of the breast. However, many men who suffer from moderate to severe Gynecomastia may find these options unsuccessful for correcting the excess tissue.

Weight loss will not result in exclusive loss of chest fat. Often, men with Gynecomastia can lose weight but not see any significant reduction in their breast size. That’s because the excess breast tissue is made of more than just fat. it also includes muscle and glandular tissue.
