Many men don’t realize that the woman-like appearance of their chest is not the lack of good diet and exercise but a medical condition called gynecomastia. While there are many different conservative treatments available for the so called “moobs”, in reality, gynecomastia surgery is the only effective way to reduce the excessive amounts of fatty deposits and chest tissue that can make a man’s body appear womanly.
Alternative Gynecomastia Treatments
Before going for a surgery, many people explore alternative treatments that involve creams, pills, diet changes, and extensive exercises. It is important to understand that healthy lifestyle can change your appearance for the better but won’t deal with the gynecomastia causes, which involve a decrease in testosterone, obesity, excessive antibiotics, alcohol, and drug use, and more. In the best case, the “magic” chest reduction pills and creams may have a small placebo effect. In the worst case, they can worsen the condition.

Most doctors believe that gynecomastia is a naturally occurring condition and can gradually disappear on its own when the hormonal balance is restored, the wrong pill prescription are cancelled and the right ones are given. However, many men are not ready to live with this aesthetically unappealing problem.
Surgery is one of the fastest and most effective ways to restore the chest to its right size and allow a man to get back to living a wholesome life by improving his self-image. At You New Plastic Surgery Clinic, we allow our patients to cut the costs of gynecomastia surgery in Dubai while getting the highest-quality treatment. We know how important self-confidence and masculine appearance is to men of all ages.
Male chest reduction is not a major surgery. A small incision is made to remove excess chest tissue. Depending on the amount of tissue to be removed, the nipple and areola might need to be repositioned. Some men may require liposuction to reduce the size of their chest and to make it appear flatter. Most of the procedures are done with local anesthesia. Our professional consultants and surgeons offer extensive advice on the process.
