In brief: Not Necessarily

True gynecomastia will not improve with direct and exercise.
However, if adipose tissue is a component of the increased breast size, improve and maybe seen with weight loss. If symptomatic and/or aesthetically displeasing, surgical correction of gynecomastia can be worthwhile. Treatment is individualized depending on the specific patient's situation; involves direct excision of glandular tissue..

In brief: Weight loss is good

Carolyn: gynecomastia is a male problem and very common.
It is more pronounced in obese people, so diet and exercise is always helpful. Surgical options are utilized after conservative methods fail or to remove residual "stigmata." surgical intervention may require liposuction or open procedures to remove excess skin.

In brief: No diet will help

Gynecomastia cannot be corrected with a special diet, or any specific exercise for that matter. You can build up your pec muscles with weight training, but that will probably make the gynecomastia look worse.
Usually surgery is the only solution. Visit www.Gynecomastia.Org, a great forum.
