I get this question all the time from different people if you can bring down your man boobs if you work out your chest? I would think it could tone some if it, but the boobs will still probably remain to some extent which is why the surgical procedure is required.
Has anyone experienced a reduction in their male breasts by working out the chest specifically?
Bench press and push ups will build up the muscle while the breast tissue on top remains, making the entire man boob larger. This is why I didn't bench for years, prior to my surgery.
Getting lean doesn't help either. The fat goes away all over your body, but breast tissue does not. So again you now look like a ripped guy with 12 year old girl tits. I had to keep my body fat up around 12%.
Now that the op is done I can get as lean as I want (goal of 7%) and I can now work my chest muscles in the gym, when I used to just do arms, shoulders, and back. I'm not a body builder/muscle head guy btw, just a normal athletic guy.
Thanks for sharing and what you say makes sense. It sounds like you're really happy with the result. Did you have any long-term scars or have they faded nicely?? If you got any pics and can show them, would love to see them. You can crop them of course for privacy.
