What is Gynecomastia ? Its Exercise: Some Misconceptions
You might be startled to learn that 40 to 60 percent of males experience gynecomastia, also known as enlarged male breasts or “man boobs,” in some form. Therefore, although not a condition that most men enjoy having, it is not unusual.
Gynecomastia can be brought on by a variety of causes, and occasionally the disorder is ideopathic, meaning we are unsure of its underlying aetiology. Hormonal abnormalities, particularly when men overproduce oestrogen, can lead men to produce an excessive amount of breast tissue in circumstances where the cause is known.
About 30% of adolescent men experience it during puberty, a time of significant hormonal fluctuation for men. When gynecomastia develops throughout adolescence, it frequently disappears once the hormones have balanced, but occasionally it doesn’t. For these reasons, when men are affected by hormonal changes once more, gynecomastia can recur in men 50 and older.
The problem with gynecomastia is that it truly doesn’t care who you are. Although it mostly affects the age categories we just discussed, any guy can have it at any age. Young or old, tall or short, skinny or not, are all possible. Even if you’re in the best shape of your life, even if you’re a bodybuilder, you can still have gynecomastia.
Gynecomastia Exercise: Some Misconceptions:
We want to start by dispelling some myths about gynecomastia and fitness.
The first is: Can someone in excellent physical condition get gynecomastia? Absolutely. At The Plastic Surgery Clinic, we’ve helped many guys with gynecomastia—even body builders—who are in excellent physical form.
However, this fact raises still another myth, namely that gynecomastia can truly be brought on by exercise or bodybuilding. Our response to that is “no” Gynecomastia can frequently resemble developed or built chest muscles, which leads to the misconception that male breasts can be caused by excessive exercise or muscle growth.
Gynecomastia, or overdeveloped breasts in males, is a condition that is not brought on by an increase in muscular mass but rather by an excess of glandular tissue, fatty tissue, or a mix of the two. So exercising absolutely does not induce gynecomastia. Exercise by itself won’t create gynecomastia, but if you’re a body builder it’s true that some substances, like steroids, could induce the condition. As a result, you should avoid using them and focus on organically gaining muscle instead.
On the other hand, there’s also the myth that working out would help you get rid of man boobs or gynecomastia. Regrettably, no. Once you are diagnosed with gynecomastia, no matter how fit you are or how much you exercise, your male breasts will still be there.
Why? Because, once more, you are not attempting to lose extra weight in this instance. You would undoubtedly be able to lose the majority of the extra weight you have in your chest area with exercise. However, because we are dealing with extra breast tissue, the only option to treat gynecomastia is through surgically eliminating the extra glandular and/or fatty tissue.
Beyond that, we’ve even had patients who went to exercise in the hopes of resolving their gynecomastia, only to find that the more chest muscle they gain highlights their engorged breast tissue. When you devote time, effort, and money into appearing your best, only to find out much later that you’ve accomplished the opposite of your goal, it may be a major letdown.
