Possible symptoms: It is not uncommon to have some symptoms that come with male breast enlargement or gynecomastia. These may include soreness or tenderness. There are a couple of surgical approaches that can easily treat this issue. One is liposuction to the area with smaller cannulas and the other would be an excision of the area(s). A recommendation could easily be obtained in a consultation.

Surgery: Just checked into noninvasive modalities & none are approved yet. In my opinion the best treatment is slim lipo wh is laser- enhanced liposuction. The fibrous & glandular nature of the tissue can require use of at least a small incision to remove some of the tissue by conventional means.

Muscle/fat/breast: What part of the breast do you want to enlarge: the fat, the muscle or the actual breast tissue. Fat is increased by weight gain. There are no muscle building pulls but Anabolic steroids will promote muscle growth with exercise and has many adverse side effects including promotion of breast tissue. Any pill with estrogen like effects or testosterone blocking are likely to promote breast growth.
