We have noticed an uptick in Internet activity promoting non-surgical cures for gynecomastia. Any scheme designed to relieve hopeful people of hard-earned cash bothers us, but as a practice specializing in gynecomastia surgery in Manhattan, we really cringe when we see a blitz promoting a miracle cure for man boobs.
Wouldn’t it be nice if there were a pill you could take to modify the shape of your physical features? We certainly don’t fault people for hoping some of these products might bring about male breast reduction. We understand that man boobs are troubling, and plastic surgery is a big step that’s not for everyone.
Unfortunately, there’s no objective evidence that even the most frequently and convincingly touted oral “treatment” for gynecomastia actually works. Before you invest in a so-called natural remedy, think things through critically. For instance:
Finally, we also understand how people can feel cynical about elective surgery. In our society, non-essential medical procedures are sometimes very heavily marketed too. But even if your first thought about plastic surgery alternatives is that they’re not welcomed by the industry – consider how the industry has embraced BOTOX® Cosmetic, dermal fillers and the like. Non-invasive treatments are perfect complements to surgery in practices across the country.
If the bad news is that oral “medication” for gynecomastia doesn’t work, the good news is that cosmetic surgery does. In our practice in Manhattan, gynecomastia patients by the hundreds are treated each year. The procedure is safe and delivers permanent results that delight the men we work with.
