In the male fitness community, nothing can put a damper on your chiseled body quite like having excess breast tissue. However, as something that is fairly common and is caused by things like excess fat or steroid use, excess breast tissue or “man boobs” can easily be treated by a surgical procedure called gynecomastia. However, how can you tell if you need this surgery or if it’s something that will merely go away with some more lifting? Read on to learn more.
It’s Not Going Away
As a bodybuilder, you know that it takes a time to transform your body. However, if you have given your chest plenty of time to get smaller but you still have excess breast tissue, then it may be a chance to consider gynecomastia. During your initial consultation with Dr. Rick Silverman, he will be able to determine if it is an issue that needs surgery or if the fat should go away with exercise alone.
It’s Making You Self-Conscious
Life is too short to spend it being self-conscious, especially after you have worked hard on your body. If you have started to feel too self-conscious to take your shirt off both in public and in private because of the excess breast tissue, consider getting gynecomastia. With an easy procedure and a speedy recovery, you’ll be able to hit the beach or pool with friends— and confidence— in no time.
You Used Steroids
There are some supplements that are designed to help your body naturally build up more muscle mass, and there are some things like steroids that cause more harm to your body than good. As a common side-effect of steroid use, many bodybuilders develop excess breast tissue that they can’t get rid of. If you have used steroids in the past and have started to notice the development of breasts, then schedule an appointment to learn more about gynecomastia.
As a male, the last thing you want is to have “man boobs” especially if you are into bodybuilding. Luckily, with gynecomastia, Dr. Rick Silverman can get rid of your excess breast tissue and leave you feeling and looking like a million bucks.
