A Gynecomastia Sufferer Spoke Up, Today is not an easy society to survive in.
From fierce job competition and the volatile nature of job stability, to the fear of being judged on both the superficial and personal levels, society today is a brutally tough crowd.
While women may find it easy to talk about their insecurities, the same unfortunately, cannot be said for the opposite gender. Males are stereotypically perceived as more ‘dominant’, and emotional insecurity can be unfairly judged as weakness. But that is not the case.
“I used to be a lot rounder in junior college,” Jun Jie shared. “And I would often skip out on physical activities as the white colour of my shirt would make my man boobs super obvious, especially when we were doing vigorous exercise.”
And although he has lost weight since then, he reveals that his male boobs never completely went away, and he still avoids wearing light coloured shirts.
Although many attribute these boobs to being ‘fat’, it can also be a health problem with pain in the chest area, and this pain can aggravate with age. One method guys could try would be to accept treatments.
Although surgery might sound like a drastic solution, it is actually a highly accepted solution in countries such as the US. Other surgery benefits also include a more well-defined chest area and fat reduction.
Gynecomastia is not just an aesthetic problem; it is a medical condition. Symptoms include tenderness around the breast, swelling of the breast gland tissue and more. The cause of the condition varies, and this includes hormonal imbalance and also from the side effects of certain medications.
Ageing is also a known cause of the condition. Gynecomastia during puberty is not uncommon, but if the problem persists into adulthood, surgical intervention is the recommended option.
• Reduces excess fat and overly enlarged glandular tissues
• Define masculine appearance on the chest area
