Gynecomastia is excesses of breast tissue and can emasculate even the most masculine of men. Even more tragic is what men miss to avoid putting themselves in a potentially revealing position.
Imagine living a life in shame of not being able to remove your shirt. You are unable to enjoy a friend’s pool party or take your kid to the beach. For men with gynecomastia, this is a reality they live with every day.
And if you are suffering from gynecomastia, there are standard options men choose to eliminate gynecomastia that you should be aware of.
- Gynecomastia Routine (Conceal/Avoid)
The term Gynecomastia Routine highlights what you often see among gyno patients. Patients usually wear two shirts at the same time and have the outer shirt oversized to make sure their chest contour isn’t revealed.
No tight shirts or white shirts. They also slightly hunch their shoulders to cover the chest, which can cause serious medical problems with shoulders, back, and posture in the long-term. Plus, men also often pull at the shirt to ensure it doesn’t cling to their chest.
Mostly this isn’t a solution to the problem. However, it is essential to be aware of how damaging gynecomastia is for confidence if left untreated.

Without a doubt, the single best way to ‘treat’ gynecomastia is to avoid it altogether or minimize it before it becomes a problem. It’s certainly possible to lose fat in (and around) the chest area by building muscle.
There are also significant positive effects of optimizing your testosterone under the supervision of an experienced physician. Not surprisingly, gynecomastia and testosterone deficiency have a lot in common:
- Both conditions are defined as medical problems;
- Both are dismissed and often viewed with a “that’s just how it is” perspective;
- Both are not life-threatening, yet capable of taking the life out of you;
- Both erode the quality of life, and slowly emasculate you over time;
- Both have effective and predictable treatments available.
Keep in mind: some men are oversensitive to the conversion of testosterone to DHT. It might lead to mild gland growth around the nipple, but it happens only to a small number of men.
- Surgical Removal
Many men have had enlarged breast glands for an extended period, going all the way back to puberty. Over time, several processes occur that make it impossible to get rid of gynecomastia without surgery.
Some of these processes are self-inflicted, such as in bodybuilders who use incredibly high doses of testosterone and anabolic steroids (AAS.) But for many men, there is no defined cause of these processes.
On the bright side, surgical removal of Type 1 and Type 2 gynecomastia (i.e., gynecomastia without skin laxity) is a life-changing procedure. When performed by a competent gynecomastia surgeon, the removed gland is gone forever.
There is solid reasoning behind the surgical removal of excess breast tissue when non-surgical methods are not working. But, keep in mind that many plastic surgeons are unwilling or incompetent to treat the issue of gynecomastia in males, which limits your choices.
Although it’s not a life-threatening medical problem, gynecomastia seriously minimizes the quality of life. When you are unable to enjoy the full potential of everyday events, it’s reason enough to seek out a solution.
