how can i hide them?
don't go out
Don't be put off by Dr. Rock. That's just his own special way of being affectionate.
Liposuction if they're hormonally induced, if not then you better start exercising. Even if you could somehow hide them when you go out, there's always the question of what to do when you bring someone home. I'd be pretty pissed since I'm not into that sort of thing.
The medical term for what you have is called " Gynecomastia".
The only real way to hide it is to have it surgically removed.
I know that cost money..so why not try a few of these suggestions.
Wear layers of shirts rather than just one. Don't wear anything tight fitting.
You could even try wrapping your chest with several ACE Bandages. This will help flatten your chest area.
I wish you luck with this situation.
See www.gynecomastia.org. Its a great support and information site for those with gynecomastia (male breasts).
Are you a heavyset guy or thin?
I tend to find that weight is an issue, also self-image. I have "pecs". If anyone has an issue, they can suck-em-and-see.
Lipo could only work if they are just fatty bits (if you cant be bothered with the excercise).
"Hormonally induced" male breasts (Gynecomastia is the term as others have said) involve actual breast tissue and cann't simple be sucked out
..No Dr would try it and I doubt you're going to try DIY lipo, so this is really just for accuracys sake!
I have the same problem!
Oh wait no i don't i have a vagina and i think i'm ment to have them....
Unless you're not supposed to have the vagina either. :33:
I have fat guy man-boobs, but it turns out there are a lot of sexy looking guys that like them. Go figure. I lost a lot of weight in my early 20s but the boobs didn't recede that much, so my doctor (who seemed more worked up about it than I was) sent me to a plastic surgeon.
The surgeon checked things out, looked at the elsticity (or lack thereof) of my boob skin and delivered the classic line:
"You know, beauty is only skin deep."
to which I replied like a shot:
"yeah, but ugly go right to da bone!"
That's why I asked if he was heavy or a thin buy with man boobs. Many of those who like the big boys (myself included) really like man tits. But on a thin guy it looks sort of out of place.
I have to agree, when I was skinny I wouldn't have wanted to wear a tight sweater or I would have been "that tall chick with the rack". Now chubby chasers tell me I have a particularly comely rack. :biggrin1:
i had man boobs... and as u loose weight.. they start to shrink.. advice... cardio, esspecially biking or running or things that work the torso.. it honestly makes a world of a difference.. they are more pectorals now.. and they are starting to look hot. take my advice if u wish.:wink:
I'm fat now but when I was in my 20's I lost weight but they look bigger as I got older they got bigger and sag. I started lifting weights now they look like I got implants!
I am no stranger to boobage, my friend.
I was a slim eight year old with muscular thighs and backside, when poobers set in, and I started putting on weight. We develop early in my family, and the first noticable change was flabby pecs -- bigtime embarassing. The first casualty was my swmming, which was the only activity I've ever really loved. It got so out of control that I started swimming in tee-shirts and eventually (by age eleven) had no desire to swim at all. Later, I just didn't like going outside anymore; even in tees.
Well, they don't just drop off with age. Even today, toning things up at 36, the pecs are not as lean as I'd like them. So, I'll be exercising and camouflaging what I can, until they're unnoticable or I can afford surgical reduction. Everyone doesn't just grow out of them.
In addition to the cardio mentioned by Jeff Black, you might also want to invest in a footlocker of small/child-size sleeveless undershirts -- preferably, the wife-beater variety. This is a TEMPORARY solution that will pack in and smooth out your upper body imperfections (lumps, etc.), allowing you to fit better in your suits/blazers/sweaters and wear things you never imagined you could wear. You will also need underwear that will come high enough on your belly to hold that shirt in. For a little while, you'll feel like Superman, and your confidence will shoot through the roof. Important: This solution is only viable for guys wearing under 54" jackets.
Why temporary, if the pack-n-smooth thing is so great?
This isn't making the problem go away. If you're obese, you've got more than a cosmetic problem here -- the longer you're fat, the more strain you're putting on your heart, kidneys, blood vessels and etcetera. Lose the weight, and get a nutritionist and/or personal trainer involved, if necessary. If you have a hormonal condition, such as a thyroid problem, that is causing large breasts, you need to get that checked out right away by a doctor. Either way, you need to take this boobage thing seriously and get some answers.
Furthermore, remember that everyone doesn't just grow out of them. If you're obese and in your thirties, there's a good chance you're going to be wrestling with this for quite awhile; so, get cracking. Every passing second is slowing down your metabolism, making that cardio Jeff mentioned harder and harder. If you are the parent of an obese boy, make his pediatrician take action and get the kid some help. Don't buy the "He'll grow out of them" trip my parents did, especially if you're in a family, where men tend to be stocky and big in the chest and shoulders (like my family - BOTH sides, too). Don't dismiss them as cute [?] and hand your boy another platter of porkchops. [If there is a fat-boy-parent hell, you will certainly burn in it for that one!]
My heart really goes out to any guy in his twenties, teens or younger with this problem. Unless you've got that gynecomastia thing, no guy should ever be tortured with this condition. Parents can spare their boys this, if they just pay attention to the kid's development and take any weight gain deadly seriously.
As for me, I'm working on it.
My utters are practically gone and just look like regular, untoned guy chests. I still wear a small/child-sz wifebeater to pack and smooth, but the only way my chest will ever look a model's is with surgery or nigh starvation. Frankly, I haven't decided what to do about it.
Best of luck, buddy. :wink:
I had GM as a teen. Because sometimes the usual amount of humiliation just isn't enough.
If there is enough glandular (actual breast) tissue involved, simply working out won't do; at best you'd look like a woman weightlifter.
As soon as I turned 18 I got the surgery. Sore for a day, then had to deal with some kinda grisly aftercare: chest wrapped mummy-tight in bandages and there are two big drains hanging down to collect the blood and prevent swelling--you have to empty them once a day. But by about two weeks later, I had a perfectly normal-looking (though bruised) male chest. I arrived at college able to completely leave behind that part of my identity, and went to the gym and the pool and some, ah, adventurous parties, without a second thought. My only regret was that I waited so long.
In spite of the bitter tone of my post, I really don't hate my parents for this. It's not like they zapped me with a tit wand or something. They're both from the south, where folks didn't make much of those kinds of physical flaws. Like most southerners, chubby kids were cute as buttons.
It's only in the north (and L. A.) that fat kids are a curse and rushed to the doctor like little cancers.
If the men in your family tend to be stocky, it's almost a given that your sons might take on weight and, at some point, boobs. In my opinion, it just means you've got to be ready to deal with it.
why hide them? One of the sexiest guys I know is an italian with a huge dick who has man breasts, very sensitive nipples too. They are GREAT.
