Surgery and surgery!: Other than weight loss (and treatment of any stimulating causes, like testicular tumors or other hormone causes), surgery is the only way to remove gynecomastia tissues, especially glandular component. Liposuction can help with the fatty part, but excision is needed for the glandular portion. There is no diet or supplement that can help. See an abps-certified plastic surgeon.

Only two: In adults, weight loss if it is fatty, surgery if it is glandular.

Liposuction: Sometimes liposuction can be useful for a male of normal weight who has minimal glandular hypertrophy with an excess of fatty tissue in the breast. Combining liposuction with excisional surgery may also be an option.

What is the treatment for gynecomastia?

See plastic surgeon: Gynecomastia is fairly frequent and the cause is most often unknown, a combination of ultrasonic and conventional liposuction with direct excision of glandular tissue can be a very effective treatment with minimal scarring. You should be within about 10-15 lbs of your ideal weight before considering this. See a surgeon certified by the american board of plastic surgeons to discuss your options.
