Man boobs can be embarrassing

 

Having gifted, full breasts is quite attractive for women, but when it comes to men, let’s not kid ourselves, man boobs can be embarrassing.


Let’s face it- It is every man’s biggest nightmare.

 

What may come as a relief from this embarrassing corner is that a man does not have to experience them for a lifetime.

 

A woman’s asset can be a man’s problem

 

Man boobs is a medical condition named gynecomastia, and not just a pun dreamed up by marketers to sell products. It is a hormonal condition in which the body brings out an amplified amount of estrogen and a reduced amount of testosterone and mainly occurs at the time of puberty,” says Dr. Vivek Kumar, cosmetic surgeon, Sir Ganga Ram Hospital.


The other school of thought is that it can be because of excess weight. However, Apollo hospital’s plastic surgeon Dr Anup Dhir would disagree with it. It is a myth that you can spot reduces your man boobs, he adds.

 

There are better options than buying a bra


Don't let man boobs scare you.  In order to deal with this ‘man problem’, medical advices must be sought.


In most of the cases, the sufferer will be taken off certain medications and will be suggested anti-estrogen treatment, suggests Dr Dhir.

 

30 per cent of males suffer from it and going for a surgery is the best way out. Liposuction is performed on the patient to do away with the fat on the chest area, says Dr Kumar.

 

Hide them in 5 minutes flat


One can do so by not going for t-shirts with high necks as they’re far too clingy for your chest.  Vertical layers will also help in adding to the slim effect, suggests Delhi-based fashion designer Mandira Wirk. Adding another garment to your outfit can also be a good option like a jacket or a long-sleeved shirt over a t-shirt. Stay clear of single coloured t-shirts, she adds.


Our advice:
It is better to go for surgery then to feel sorry about it throughout your life. After all you deserve to go topless!
