I’m a 20 year old guy and I’ve had a large chest since I was around 15/16. Unfortunately, it hasn’t gone away and now I’m left with really large that I’m struggling to get rid of. I’m considering surgery as I’m starting uni in September and want to be able to enjoy my time there without the constant stress/embarrassment of my chest area. In all honesty, they look terrible. I’m not overweight so they’re completely disproportionate to the rest of my body. Please can someone help?

Yes, they said to come back if it hasn’t got better in a year's time, but I can’t wait that long. Would you say that they are very noticeable/a big turn off when dating girls?

I was born with gyno that only got worse as I went through puberty and grew up. In the end, I had a breast reduction when I was 16. It didn't completely solve the overall shape of them, but they look a hell of a lot better than they did - minus the huge scars I'll have for the rest of my life.

I can't see the attachment, so no way to tell if we're similar stories.

looks/sounds like it could be gyno. Common in people who've sustained testicular damage, dabbled with with hormones/steroids, are low-T/high-estrogen.

Have you tried working out? Forgive me for saying but (melons aside) you look rather doughy and un-conditioned. Going on a body recomp (shredding fat, building muscle) would allow you to effectively rule out gyno. If you still have a pair of juicy jubblies after getting in shape, you have gyno and surgery is your only option, else you're ****ed. There's a chance you don't have gyno and your ample cleavage is the result of simply being lardy in the chest area. 30 minute sessions of intense metabolic resistance training 3-7 times a week (depending on how desperate you are) combined with fasting and increased protein ought to bazooka those bazongas if the latter is the case. I knew someone from rugby who was also well endowed and it turned out he was just needed to shred down and lay off the Ginsters and Guinness

There are two approaches to this: making a physical change, or a mental change:

The rest of your body might not be overweight, but that might be where you store the weight. Much of what determines a woman’s body shape (e.g. thighs vs boobs) is where fat is deposited. Don’t go on a diet if you’re healthy, but perhaps try and alter your exercise to focus on that area.

The alternative is to go extreme and turn them into pecks and make the rest of you match!

After being self conscious for most of my teenage years, going to uni and mingling with far more people taught me that even those we see as perfect hate certain things about themselves. You will always pick out your own flaws far more easily than anyone else. Once you learn this, you realise you’re no more flawed than anyone else and start to forget about them. Perhaps you can teach yourself which parts of you others envy rather than thinking about those you don’t like.

I generally eat very healthily but I don’t do much strength training (I run five times a week). Even if I do have gynecomastia, would my chest area look more defined if I worked out more? What kind of exercises do you recommend? Thanks for your reply

Thank you for your kind response. I just worry that they’re extremely noticeable on the beach, by the pool etc and it gets to me a lot because I really do like swimming. I think i first need to join a gym, but I’m not too sure where to start

Overall though would you say it’s very noticeable?

First attachment looks like true tissue growth underneath the nipple, which has to be surgically removed at this stage and won't be fixed with diet or exercise. Have your GP check for hormonal imbalances as those will need to be corrected for the surgery to have any lasting effect.

Exercise is not going to do anything for excess breast tissue, don't waste your time with trying to "exercise it off", it's not fat tissue. You might feel a slight, barely noticeable difference with exercise after many months, time that you don't have anyway as you said. Surgery is your only viable option.

Do you think I could get this surgery before I start university (in 7 weeks). How would my GP check for hormonal imbalances? I have the money to have surgery so I’m more than willing to go through with it

Do you think it’s very noticeable? I’d really like to have it before I start university in September but I doubt there is enough time now

I can't answer that question because it says "Attachment Not Found".

I had my surgery done privately in a Bupa hospital and it was consulted and performed within six weeks. You may be able to visit a chop shop in London and have it done more quickly.

Hormone testing is by blood tests primarily and you might also have a testicular ultrasound and/or brain MRI. Privately you can order a fairly comprehensive blood panel for around £200.

You have gynecomastia.

Th way is a combination of push-ups so you spread the fat apart and cardio (running).
You need calorie control as well.

Surgery is also vital, they will cut out a section inside the pectoral which is responsible for the moob.

No worries. Neither running nor strength training is optimal for losing fat on its own. Also, there's no such thing as spot fat reduction. Training your chest will firm the area but won't magically make the fat dissapear

When I say 'metabolic resistance training', all I mean is training your muscles in a way that makes you out of breath and in doing so, burn fat and builds muscle at the same time

The best individual home exercises in my opinion include:

Burpees
Kettlebell swings (literally my favourite exercise of all time)
Mountain climbers
Skater jumps

As you have probably realised, these are all exercises that train your muscles AND make you out of breath. They burn crazy calories, especially when combined in a circuit. You can find more online.

The best training methods are

Circuit training
AMRAP (as many reps as you can)
Tabata (20 sec effort, 10 sec rest,)
Cardio boxing/Le Mills Bodycombat and other similar fitness classes (can be found online in video form)

An ultra simple workout I use myself is to do a 3 exercise circuit, performing as many rounds as I can in 30 minutes. Each round is 30 seconds with 5 seconds of rest in between:

30 sec: pressups
5 sec: rest
30 sec: crunches
5 sec: rest
30 sec: jump squats
5 sec: rest
REPEAT

You can modify it to a tabata format if this is too intense. I like to use variations for each exercise. On it's own, this isn't very balanced. It ignores the posterior chain and lats which could lead to postural problems. I realise fat burning is your priority but you should take care not injure yourself or mess up you muscle balance. Tits will be the least of your concerns. I suggest you do this:

15 minutes of the above circuit, 20 on, 10 off (replace jump squats with kettlebell goblin squats if you wish)
5 minutes of kettlebell swings
5 minutes of bent over kettlebell rows (2.5 min per arm) to balance out pec and shoulder development

I covered all 5 basic muscle groups in 25 minutes and designed the workout to be simple, doable at home and require as little equipment as possible (1 kettlebell, highly recommend you invest in one). You could spend an extra 5-10 minutes doing other things i.e. training you biceps, calves, more reps, jump rope etc. Just don't workout for longer than 35 minutes as you'll burn yourself out and risk elevating your cortisol which would lower your testosterone and further aggravate your affliction. Don't forget to warm up first and stretch afterwards.

I'm spitballing but I guaruntee you you'll get results from this. If you still have moobs, at least you'll be super fit . This is just to start you off, I suggest you read around online and consider doing follow along routines on Youtube

see a doctor please, TSR cannot make diagnoses for you. That is a dangerous choice, you can get surgery for this, I am sure so dont worry
