Gynocomastia is the development of breast tissue, so whether or not you get help shouldn't be affected by being up or down a point in the BMI scale.

It's mostly just a guideline so they can see who's clearly too overweight, someone who's just a smidge out of the range should be okay.

It shouldn't be treated on the NHS period. Especially in the fatties.

Go on a diet, go to the gym.

from NHS website :

Breast reduction surgery is an option for men with this condition. It may also be used to tighten the breast area after dramatic weight loss that has caused the skin to sag.

However, it is not suitable for men whose large breasts are simply excess fat from being overweight.

Normally, you'll need to pay for breast reduction surgery privately. But the NHS may provide this for you if you've had gynecomastia for a long time, it has not responded to other treatments, and it's causing you a lot of distress or pain.

How much does it cost to have privately?
In the UK, breast reduction surgery for men costs £3,500-£5,500, plus the cost of any consultations or follow-up care that may not be included in the price.

Where do I go?

If you're looking in England, check the Care Quality Commission (CQC) website for providers that can perform breast reductions for men.
