Kay I know I already posted my titties before but the pictures were a bit deceiving. These should leave no doubt in your mind whether I have gynecomatia or not. I want you guys to rate it. Keep in mind that I am 5'6'' 205 pounds, so yeah I have quite a bit of fat on there. So anyway here are the not so magnificent gynecomastia pictures:







So rate them =]

I personally give myself a 6-7/10. be blunt with me please.

me in a nike vent tight under shirt. size medium.





I wear it under my shirt when I go out. Flattens the nips but doesn't do much for the mounds behind the nips.

To me it looks like a 5 or 6 out of 10. 
Before you do any surgery you might try losing some weight, the leaner you are the better the results seem to be.

Losing weight will definitely help. What other people rate it is doesnt matter, its how it affects you that matters.  Mine was worse than yours and it killed my self confidence.  I had surgery and most of mine is away, not perfect but much more manageable than it was.  I now have so much more self confidence around girls especially.  Have no problem wearing shirts, t-shirts or anything so long as its not really tight but its so much better now.  Because i obviously have a big hormone imbalance mine is still there as i said and im still not a fan of swimming or changing rooms.

If the surgery corrects the problem fully, i can guarantee it will change your life regardless of the weight you carry.  It changed mine. Good luck!!

Wearing the extra fat is not healthy.  Check out your risks with a BMI Calculator (Body Mass Index)

At your height / weight that puts you in the obese category. Unfortunately, BMI does not take into account muscle mass vs. fat.  Body Fat Analyzers can help define that issue.

Plastic surgery is better after weight loss, losing weight is a coarse tool. Plastic surgery is better used for refinement.

Weight Loss, Dealing With Excess Skin of the Chest and Body is also a major emotional issue. 

We have many patients, family members, and parents who have raved how a compression garment can really help while waiting for surgery or until stabilization of a problem.  However, I have found not all compression garments work as well.

Body shaping garments are a good temporary contouring solution.  They do not help remove or treat gynecomastia.  When the garment is removed, the gynecomastia is still there.  They can provide an emotional band-aid for the stress of contour issues and bouncing tissues.

Non-Surgical Body Shaping for Gynecomastia

Check out the multiple views for each patient. Clink on the links to see other views of the garment and features of this design I prefer.  We have tried many other brands and none seem to come close to what this one offers.

Rate My Gynecomastia - is a frequent question.


Unfortunately, it can be difficult to distinguish just what is causing the problem.  Gynecomastia male breasts can be fat, gland, or most commonly a combination of both.  Sometimes skin and sagging tissues can be a factor.  Pseudo Gynecomastia (pseudogynecomastia) is supposed to be fat only gynecomastia.  The problem with that "classification" is that in almost every case of gynecomastia I have seen there is some component of gland.  This gland can be very small, but it is present almost all the time.  So do you have Pseudo gynecomastia when there is a 1%, 10%, 50%, or 90% deformity from fat?  Reality just does not work that way.

Defining the problem with photographs sometimes can help.  However, it is impossible to tell from photographs if the deformity is from fat or gland. The dynamic images, of my standard set of images can show a region that compresses differently.  Even clinical examination differentiation can be difficult.

Fat tends to be soft, gland tends to be firm.  Fingers of gland often dissect between fingers of fat.  Look at this drawing and move your mouse over the arrows.  However, gland can be soft and fat firm confusing the picture.  Gland tends to be located under the nipple and pinching pressure can sometimes tether to the nipple pulling it in.

Men with excessive fat do tend to have certain contour issues.  Check out this link about Sumo Wrestlers.  Men tend to carry excessive weight in their chest and stomach.

Losing weight first, to something you are comfortable with and can maintain is typically a much better option.  Weight loss is a coarse tool.  Unfortunately, you cannot pick where weight comes from - nor can you pick where weight goes back on to.  Gland that contributes to the breast shape is not helped with weight loss.  Fingers of fat in the gland can become smaller, but the contour problem from gland does not go away.  After losing weight plastic surgery can help with localized fat, gland, and extra skin.  After surgery remaining fat cells can put on more weight.

Hope this helps,

Good post Dr. Bermant. The site really is lucky to have a real dr. posting on it.

I agree with the other posts, losing weight is best. I've gained weight since my surgery, but it all seemed to have gone to my stomach. My chest is as flat the day after surgery.

dude, your gyne looks a lot like mine, I think mine is a bit bigger, but basicly the same. I myself would opt for surgery if I could afford it, but I cant so instead I will be starting an intense cardio work out to burn fat off my chest. I would say you should think of doing the same before going with the surgery.
