Gynecomastia is a health condition characterized by a growth of excessive breast tissue in the breast area in a male. There are generally two causes of this tissue growth. One is abnormally high levels of a female estrogen hormone called oestrogen and the second cause is obesity which disturbs the levels of normal sex hormones in addition to causing overall increase in body fat. The bottom line is that the tissue found in breasts is consists mostly of fat cells. Both of these causes of gynecomastia increase the growth of fat cells which in females is normal and in males is abnormal. It is believed that about 10% of the male population is effected by gynecomastia and that this is an underestimated number since many males do not come forward with complaints due to the negative social outlook on the issue.
Breast reduction (in the form of surgery) is the fastest gynecomastia treatment. However, although this may get rid of the actual issue, the underlying problems are not solved. The underlying problem, of course, is generally a serious health issue in which case gynecomastia is actually only one of the main signs that the individual is at risk for other serious problems.
For this reason, a good case can be made to the NHS for breast reduction surgery as a male if you consider your life or health is at stake. In other words, if one were to convince the NHS that the large number of fat cells in breast tissue presents a risk for blood clots, high cholesterol, heart problems, seizures and diabetes, the gynecomastia treatment via plastic surgery can be approved and covered by the NHS. However it is fair to say that the NHS will only treat the most extreme cases of gynecomastia.
Other gynecomastia treatments include hormone therapies. Since for many people the condition is caused by an imbalance in the ratio of sex hormones, such as testosterone and estrogen. These hormone therapies can also be covered by insurance, however, they also come with serious consequences. Since hormones control sex drive, hair growth, emotional stability, and many other aspects of human life, hormone treatments are approached with care and considered if and when all other options fail.
Many people, however, do not want to go through a serious surgical procedure to treat gynecomastia. They also prefer not to have hormone therapies and avoid sometimes other types of endocrine imbalances. These individuals are considering the serious risks and side effects that may occur as a result of the surgery. For these patients, there is another, more natural solution to treating gynecomastia.
Gynexin is a natural remedy that targets fatty cells that are found specifically in mammary tissues. It has been shown to significantly reduce both the size and the quantity of these fat cells. It also leaves the individual physically able to pursue activities that will reduce other causes of gynecomastia such as obesity. In addition to this gynexin is not invasive (it can simply be taken in the pill form) and is much less expensive than a surgical procedure. Gynexin can be taken three times a day and with proper exercise and diet it has shown to significantly and safety reduce gynecomastia.
