Gynecomastia in Body Builders Dallas, TX

Gynecomastia is enlarged or overgrown breast tissue in men, and it is sometimes referred to as “man boobs.” However, gynecomastia does not respond to weight loss, because it is caused by hormonal imbalances, genetics or medications. It is commonly seen in bodybuilders who have used anabolic steroids. The extra tissue may make you self-conscious, or you may limit your clothing choices to items that are loose around your chest. Your chest can be corrected with bodybuilder gynecomastia surgery at Azouz Plastic and Cosmetic Surgery.

Bodybuilding Gyno Symptoms

It is frustrating to put so much effort into bodybuilding success, only to have it overshadowed by gyno symptoms. When you are striving for the absolute best in a masculine physique, the excess tissue in your chest means you may not be at the top of the game. You may find removing your shirt is a source of embarrassment, and you begin to lose time at the gym in case someone notices.

Some of the telltale signs of gynecomastia are:

  • An enlarged chest with a history of anabolic steroid use
  • Large or rounded breasts that lack the definition of your other muscles
  • Asymmetrical breasts or nipples
  • Gyno nipples – swollen, puffy or protruding nipples

Although it is the most common cause, puffy nipples and swollen breasts in bodybuilders do not have to be linked to anabolic steroids. There are other reasons breasts and nipples can swell, and some causes can be very serious. A consultation, full examination and complete medical history can help Dr. Azouz rule out other causes before scheduling your gynecomastia surgery as soon as possible.

Gynecomastia Care in Dallas, TX

You do not have to live with gynecomastia. Multiple options are considered to treat gynecomastia in bodybuilders. Liposuction can remove excess fat and contour the chest. Significant amounts of tissue can be surgically removed and nipples can be repositioned when asymmetrical growth has changed the architecture of the chest. Dr. Azouz takes great care to place incisions where they will not detract from your physique.
