Treatment for Gynecomastia and Causes of Gynecomastia
Gynecomastia Treatment: Gynecomastia is the embarrassing condition commonly referred to as male breasts or man boobs. As is evident by the name, gynecomastia is a condition where the affected male develops a breast-like chest due to fat deposits in the chest. Gynecomastia (man boobs) is considered one of the most embarrassing and ‘unmanly’ condition across cultures and most sufferers report an almost traumatizing blow to their self esteem due to this condition. The effects of being afflicted with man boobs are not simply emotional and psychological, and unless a suitable gynecomastia treatment is applied, it can cause some other physical problems as well. Popular treatments, such as the Chest Coach System and Get This Off My Chest are sought after primarily for this reason. No one wants to be held back from looking their best; espeically when it is exceptionally easy to achevie freedom.
Symptoms of Gynecomastia
The most common and evident symptom is presence of baggy deposits of fat under the chest skin which give the appearance of breasts on the man. These are clearly visible and relatively heavy, and the “jiggle” from them when moving is a constant reminder of their presence. Additionally, constantly carrying this weight results in pains in shoulders and upper back. The constant stretching of the skin can also lead the permanent stretch marks and unsightly scars.
Causes Of Gynecomastia
It is obvious that a majority of the cases of man boobs occur in men who are overweight and have excess fat in the body. Any significantly overweight male will almost always display presence of male breasts. However, in many cases, the cause is not as easily detectable. While there are many theories as to what the exact cause of man boobs may be, it is clear that not everyone has the same causes as the other. In many cases, simply getting rid of the excess fat through diligent exercise and diet control will start making a difference, while in some cases fat content has very little to do with it. In fact, nearly 27% of the cases of gynecomastia occur in young males who are well within the healthy weight and fat-content guidelines. So far, the following causes have been identified, and an appropriate gynecomastia treatment must be applied with each of these:
- Excessive Fat Content in the Body: this is the most common cause of fat deposits under the skin on the chest.
- Hormonal Imbalances: these can affect anyone, and are more common in overweight individuals than others. Estrogen and testosterone fluctuations are the most common.
- Lack of Muscle Progression in the Chest: this is the least common cause of gynecomastia.
There are numerous treatment options available to those who suffer from man boobs. Cliff Manchaster, the author and developer of the Chest Coach System, identifies the various options available today and classifies them into two categories:
Maskers: These include things such as gynecomastia bras, tight fitting vests and shirts. These are not treatments, and can cause more harm than good in the long run. None of these should be considered a gynecomastia treatment.
Cures: These actually help remove the fat built up under the chest tissue:
Exercises to get rid of man boobs: These are extremely slow working, and normally, the treatment using just these can take over a year. However, this works for every case whether it be hormonal imbalance, excess fat, or low muscle progression.
Surgery: Other than being extremely expensive, there is no guarantee that this will actually permanently correct the issue, especially if the cause is hormonal imbalance.
Pills: No gynecomastia pill has ever been proven to be effective.
Cliff discusses some other options available as well, and almost all of them fall under the categories of masking or ineffective treatments that do not take the causes of gynecomastia into consideration. Learning how to overcome this naturally through the use of a program such as the ‘Chest Coach System’, or ‘Get This Off My Chest’ by Trey Jones, is therefore one of the only gynecomastia treatment worth applying since it naturally re-aligns the body’s hormones, eliminates excess fat and stimulates chest muscle growth all at the same time, thereby overcoming each and every cause and offering the best gynecomastia treatment possible.
