There are several ways to treat gynecomastia. The most effective treatment is cosmetic surgery, with liposuction and removal of gynecomastia. Gynecomastia surgery is usually performed by plastic surgeons and is a cosmetic procedure to enhance the look of the chest.

While many surgeons recommend a vest, Dr. Azouz will recommend compression shirts and binders.  The binders offer enhanced compression at a reasonable price.

When considering compression it is important to look at how well-made each part of the product feels: Does it feel snug? Will any seams rip easily if put under strain? Are there areas for breathability of the skin?
