Body Builder’s Gynecomastia Story

What is Gynecomastia?


Gynecomastia is the medical term for the occurrence of enlarged breast tissue in men. Caused by a hormonal imbalance, gynecomastia can cause emotional and social anxiety, leading many men to seek treatment. While distressing, gynecomastia is actually relatively common, with about 60% of men worldwide exhibiting gynecomastia to some degree.

Do I have Gynecomastia?


Adolescent or adult  men who are typically diagnosed with man moobs may experience:

Gynecomastia Causes Discussed by Drs. Karidis and Ho-Asjoe

  • Swollen, enlarged male breastsChest tenderness
  • Moveable, fibrous tissue beneath the nipple in one or both breasts
  • Tissue that feels hard, distinct from softer fatty tissue.
  • Changes in mood or sex drive

Not all “moobs” (man boobs) are classified as Gynecomastia – they can also be psuedogynecomastia, a condition that is characterized by excess fat in the chest. A gynecomastia specialist can help you properly diagnose your condition.

Sculpt Your Chest – Virtual Surgery


Most males affected by the enlargement of male breast tissue desire a more masculine, contoured appearance in the chest region, but it’s difficult to imagine post-surgical results just by looking in the mirror. Fortunately, there’s an easier way to predict what you’ll look like after gynecomastia surgery. Our user-friendly virtual tool simulates results that correlate to your aesthetic goals.

Step 1: Get camera ready and give it your best shot.

Your pictures don’t have to be perfect, but should have adequate lighting and good posture to feature the parts of your body you’d like to correct. Take a few photos of yourself in profile view and upload them to our program.

Step 2: Make yourself look good.

Our user-friendly software allows for easy editing. Use the tool to smooth out any flaws and refine your chest until you’re satisfied with the results. There’s always the option to undo or redo your last change, so don’t worry if you mess up. Then, you can save your photo and share the chosen “after” image with is.

Step 3: Contact a Gynecomastia Board-Certified Plastic Surgeon

Schedule a male breast reduction consultation. During your consultation, your physician will discuss the best ways to give you a more masculine appearance and maximize the contours of your chest.

What Are Symptoms of Gynecomastia?


Understanding the symptoms of gynecomastia can help you gain a better understanding of how to cope with the condition, and get rid of man boobs.

  • Itchiness of the nipple and underarm area
  • Breast may feel tender to the touch
  • Painful, or one-sided swelling
  • Bloody discharge from the nipple
  • Feeling feverish or unwell for an unknown reason

If you’re experiencing any of these symptoms, you may have gynecomastia. If you’re only experiencing swelling and fatty breast tissue, this is referred to as pseudogynecomastia. By visiting Dr. Delgado you can receive proper diagnosis and treatment for gynecomastia or pseudogynecomastia.

The Anatomy of the Male Breast


A normal male breast contains some glandular, or breast, tissue.

The breasts of men and women are both composed of breast tissue, fatty tissue, and connective tissue. Women have a larger amount of glandular (breast) tissue than men, with the amount of tissue present fluctuating throughout the woman’s life.

Men with gynecomastia have more breast tissue present, due to changes in hormone levels. Because glandular tissue is located at the front of the breast, an increase in glandular tissue causes a noticeable protrusion on the male breast. This causes the breasts to take on a more feminine appearance.
