Many men and teenagers these days know how it feels to actually have breasts and not necessarily because they want to. Male breast enlargement has two main causes:

  • hormonal disorders
  • fatty tissue accumulation in the area

Hormonal disorders usually appear at puberty or after the men turn 50. At puberty, the body of a young boy goes through all sorts of transformations and men boobs are possible to appear. If the cause is hormonal, then everything should come back to normal as soon as the hormone levels get regulated.

After a man turns 50 the testosterone level drops and level of fatty tissue raises which can lead to men boobs. This hormonal transformation doesn’t go away unless it is treated with exercises and an appropriate diet.

Fatty tissue accumulations in the area are easy to treat with physical activities like upper body exercises and a diet that eliminates fats and raises the testosterone levels.

A man’s diet should include foods that raise the testosterone level naturally like red meat, oysters, brown rice, cruciferous (broccoli, cabbage, and so on) and that bring a healthy portion of fibers in the system. Usually, you have to cut out of your diet from refined carbs because they cause insulin and sugar spikes which lead to more fatty tissue accumulating on your body.

Another way to reduce male breast enlargement is surgery. It is faster than diet and exercise, but it implies more risks especially when you are passed 50. That’s why the natural way is always the most recommended one. The surgery is done by a plastic surgeon, and it can be of two types:

  • liposuction, to remove the extra fatty tissue
  • removing of glandular tissue

Before deciding which way you want to take in order to get rid of your men boobs you should talk to a physician to check if there isn’t another cause for them. Usually, big men breasts can hide other affections like tumors or a dangerously low testosterone level which can mean cancer. Nothing it’s more important than your health so go and have yourself checked out before going one way or the other.


Men boobs don’t have to be a subject for embarrassment in society but a subject of worry for an individual’s health. This unnatural accumulation of fatty tissue shows a bad diet and a life without exercise which is very dangerous for us, these days.
