    Post Got my Gynecomastia (Puffy Nipples) Removed

    What is Gynecomastia (Male Breasts, Bitch Tits, Puffy Nipples, Man Boobs, Gyno, Gyne) ?
    Gynecomastia, or gynaecomastia, pronounced /ˌgaɪnəkoʊˈm?stiə/ The term comes from the Greek words gyne meaning "woman" and mastos meaning "breast." In practical terms, this means abnormally large breasts on men. The condition is relatively common in adolescent boys, and 90% of the time symptoms disappear in a matter of months, or, as adolescence wanes, a few years later. But the remaining 10% are burdened with a social handicap that causes a deep and complex shame, depression, lack of self confidence, constant teasing and puts one's relationship with one's body at risk.

    Gynecomastia is usually not due to obesity, the breast development shrinks or disappears within a couple of years. The causes of common gynecomastia remain uncertain, although it has generally been attributed to an imbalance of sex hormones or the tissue responsiveness to them; a root cause is rarely determined for individual cases. Breast prominence can result from hypertrophy of breast tissue, chest adipose tissue and skin, and is typically a combination. Gynecomsta is due solely to excessive adipose tissue or glandular tissue, or a combination of both which is called "Pseudogynecomastia"


    What causes Gynecomastia?
    Gynecomastia is usually caused by changes in hormones at puberty or as part of aging. Gynecomastia may be caused by changes in the balance of 2 hormones: estrogen and testosterone. In rare cases, gynecomastia may be caused by prescription drugs, over-the-counter medicines, illegal drugs, tumors or disease.

    Bottem Line there are 13 things that might cause Gynecomasta:

    * puberty
    * steroid abuse (bitch tits)
    * obesity
    * marijuana use (this is in question)
    * tumors
    * genetic disorders (e.g. passed on genetically)
    * chronic liver disease
    * side effects of many medications
    * castration
    * Klinefelter Syndrome
    * Gilbert's Syndrome
    * aging
    * High estrogen levels / Hormone imbalance <---- THIS IS USUALLY THE MAIN CAUSE


    Will my Gynecomastia go away over time?
    Yes and no, About 50% of adolescent men will develop gynecomastia (usually during puberty this is when estrogen levels are high and gyno is likely to occur). Usually half the adolescents who develop gynecomastia will see it subside or disappear completely over a period of months or years. As for the ones that gyno does not go away, Gynecomastia can be emotionally devastating. Feelings of shame, embarrassment, humiliation, teasing, and lack of self confidence are common. One does not feel masculine in a society where masculinity is exalted. Self-hate threads itself through all aspects of the individual's life, creating an insidious web of powerlessness. A man or boy with Gynecomastia struggles with anxiety over such simple acts as taking off his shirt at the beach.


    How can I tell if I have Gynecomastia?
    First of all you should see a doctor or If you feel a slight tingly, burning, sometimes painful sensation in your nipples and your nipples are tender to the touch. This is usually the first stages of gynecomastia forming. You will first notice your nipples starting to get puffy (This usually happens during puberty ages 12-18) in most cases these nipple sensations / puffy nipples, subsides or disappears within months or years.


    In rare cases like mines, if left untreated it will keep growing and growing until the gynecomastia has finally reached its final state it usually stops growing at the end of puberty (age 18). Now it usually feels like a hard, lumpy, glandular matter under your nipples and the area around your nipples. This is full blown Gynecomastia it contours your chest to shape like womans breasts.


    If you cannot see a doctor to diagnose your gyno you can do a Pinch Test heres how to do it in the following link http://www.plasticsurgery4u.com/proc...east_exam.html basically your pinching your nipple and areas around your nipple, feeling for somewhat hard, lumpy, glandular tissue which is gynecomastia.

    If you don't have any of these symptoms you probably just have high BF% lose some weight, if still none you have no gyno ^__^

    How can i treat Gynecomastia?
    If you are in the first stages of the Gynecomastia forming (slight tingly, burning, tenderness, puffiness sometimes painful sensation in your nipples) you have 2 choices wait a few months or years and it will usually subside or completely disappear. Or you can take supplements or medicine that lowers your estrogen levels to MAKE SURE it will go away i HIGHLY recommend doing this if you see any signs of gyno forming THIS IS YOUR ONLY CHANCE TO CURE YOUR GYNO YOU MUST ACT ASAP but see your doctor / physician before doing this. If not treated the Gynecomastia in rare cases like mines and many others, will turn into its final state which is the hard, lumpy, glandular / adipose tissue under and around the nipples that will stay with you for the rest of your life. Which can ONLY be removed via Surgery when the gynecomastia is in its final state IT WILL NOT RESPOND TO TREATMENTS, MEDICINE, SUPPLEMENTS. This is why you must take action as soon as you feel you have gyno in its first stages.


    Can Exercise & Weight Loss make Gynecomastia go away?
    No. Gynecomastia IS NOT FAT IT DOES NOT RESPOND TO WEIGHT LOSS IT IS GLANDULAR TISSUE. It actually makes it look worse as your BF% decreases and your Pec muscle gets bigger it pushes the glandular tissue more further out making the gyno look worse. Many people think man boobs is from being fat but this is usually not true you can actually be anorexic and still have the biggest man boobs. BUT if you are getting surgery losing weight and exercising is a must it will give you the best results and will be cheaper too.


    Getting Gynecomastia Removed
    You should really think if you want it removed if it does not affect you mentally, emotionally and socially surgery is not for you just live with it. If you are 100% sure you want it out heres some things you need to know in the following links
    http://www.cosmetic-md.com/gynecomas...necomastia.asp
    http://www.cosmetic-md.com/gynecomas..._reduction.asp
    http://www.plasticsurgery.org/patien...mastia.cfm#one
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gynecomastia

    Remember you must be age 18 before making any decisions this is the best time because puberty is usually done and your hormone levels are pretty normal, which eliminates the chances of it reoccurring after surgery. Also your skin elasticity is at its best for the best possible results.




    Getting My Gynecomastia Removed
    Well now to my story my gynecomastia first started at age 13 (going trough puberty) my nipples felt tender, burning, tingly and started to get puffy...at the time i had no idea wtf was this and what was going on i WISH i had this information at the time so i could get this treated and would have prevented getting the expensive surgery...i just ignored it until age 16 when it really started getting big from puffy nipples to breast like chest i told my parents, went to the doc, doc said to lose more weight before thinking about surgery heres before i started losing weight to preparing for surgery:

    Now heres me 3 years later, age 18 best shape i could possibly be in. The reason why i needed to lose the weight #1 the more BF% you have the more expensive the surgery (hey i ain't rich) #2 the less BF you have the better the results...

    I searched for the BEST doc there is for Gyno removal for the price his name is Dr. Mordcai Blau located in (12 Greenridge Avenue White Plains, NY 10605) Phone # (914)-428-4700. He is very experienced and preformed 200+ Gyno removals for more info on him visit http://www.cosmetic-md.com/gynecomas..._reduction.asp the total cost for my gynecomstia removal was 6500$ he preformed Bilateral Excision & Lipo this is the best way to remove it. Dr. Blau and his staff is very professional & caring and his facility is state of the art equipment you feel right at home. The surgery was quick painless i was under local anesthesia (awake but numb chest). Post op the pain and swelling is not really bad just feels like a good chest pump and slowly goes away over time. It takes 6 months total to fully recover from surgery, Here are my pics after 3 months it is still swollen but it still looks fantastic it was worth every penny i saved...this changed my life i enjoy everyday more confident, happy, no more baggy shirts trying to cover it up.

    gratz for getting it removed,IF(if only) u are blaming yourself for the fact that you did not get it treated early and in the end got it so big....please do not blame yourself,not many people go to the doctor just because they feel something under their man boobs(it can be the bone,fat blah blah blah).

    i applaud your determination to educate us so that we will not delay gyno treatment.

    Just wanted to add I think you did the right thing. Mine is not as bad, but I wish I'd done something about it at your age (I didn't even know about gyno until a couple of years ago).

    I'm sure you feel better for it and I really think it will help physiologically through your 20's and in later life.

    Myth: Marijuana Interferes With Male and Female Sex Hormones. In both men and women, marijuana can cause infertility. Marijuana retards sexual development in adolescents. It produces feminine characteristics in males and masculine characteristics in females.

    Fact: There is no evidence that marijuana causes infertility in men or women. In animal studies, high doses of THC diminish the production of some sex hormones and can impair reproduction. However, most studies of humans have found that marijuana has no impact of sex hormones. In those studies showing an impact, it is modest, temporary, and of no apparent consequence for reproduction. There is no scientific evidence that marijuana delays adolescent sexual development, has feminizing effect on males, or a masculinizing effect on females.

    i would just like to add that i too can attest to dr. blau's skills. it has been less than a week for me and the results are phenomenal; extremely minimal discomfort and practically no swelling. the contour is flawless and this is just a matter of days after surgery.

    just to be clear this stat is for within a year, but when I spoke to him he was doing multiple surgeries a day most days of the week. most of the top plastic surgeons in the country are lucky to do a few gynos a month.

    Just had my surgery on thursday. So far so good! A little stiff in the chest but well worth it! I don't regret the cost or suffering. It's well worth it for anyone who isn't happy with what genetics gave them

    I had that surgery too and I'm very happy with my results. Mine was caused by using andro when I was about 15 with no idea I shouldn't use it at that age and I should take a pct. I just bought it at the supplement shop and figured it would be safe. I even doubled the dose because I wanted to get big.

    Thanks for this thread, it was really informative, I'm worried that I have gyno as well, or it may be fat.

    Im still unsure about whether or not i have it after following the guide, I pinch my nipple and i dont feel glands. However if i pinch around it (big wide pinch) i get something that then slides out (sorry for the poor description). However, when i tense my pecs, they don't look solid. During high school my nipple got sore from wearing nylon-holed basketball jeresies.

    Could i have gyno?

    Actually there are quite a few doctors in Toronto alone who do the procedure as it's VERY minor for any plastic surgeon. Just make sure the one you use is certified with a history of success. I did my research and I'm confident it will pay off in the end.

    I paid around $3,500 which was comparable to others quoted.

    If you're not sure if you have it, and you check for the gland... Then you likely don't. Even if you do have it, it's likely minor and you should focus on dropping your body fat. I dropped mine significantly just to see the difference and it was better, but not natural looking still. I'll let you know the results in a few weeks and onward.

    Since this is such a good thread, I just wanted to point out that male breast cancer is a possibility. Certainly true if you have even mild gyno (or any breast tissue - I think most men have some). There could always be a very, very small amount of breast tissue there.

    While rare, I think most men that get breast cancer die because they are unaware of the possibility and are not diagnosed.

    A very quick google bought this up:

    http://www.yapstuff.org/page/about_us1.html

    Looked like it was a start for info.

    Anyway, my point is that it's something to be aware of and if you've had, or have gyno, monthly (or just occasional) checks might not be a bad idea.

    oh yea a lot of people wondering how i lost all that body fat. its was surprisingly simple i just added 15 minutes of HIIT (High-intensity interval training) Cardio (treadmill) i try and do it after evey workout every day. yea thats it lol... HIIT lets you burn way more fat in such a short period of time i start leaking sweat only 5 mins in.

    for the diet it was not strict i only stayed away from all junk food, sugars, and ate in smaller proportions, snacked constantly to avoid hunger, also no food when going to bed. supplements that also helped was life extension; decaffeinated green tea extract

    You'll know if you have gyno. I had a very hard nodule under both nipples. It's as if I had a mass of hard tissue almost the size of a ping pong ball under both nipples. You can very clearly feel it when you pinch it with your fingers. My surgery was $4k, but I'm very thankful that I had it done. I don't have any before pictures because I was too embarrassed to photograph it, but you can see my results in my pictures in my bodyspace. I had the surgery about 2 years ago.

I don't have any before pictures because I was too embarrassed to photograph it, but you can see my results in my pictures in my bodyspace. I had the surgery about 2 years ago.
    I was in the exact same boat. I dont' have before pics due to embarrassment which in hindsight is already silly but I have the mental reminder anyway.

    As mentioned you'll know if you have it so it's not guesswork. I'm really looking forward to next summer
