Male Breasts

Low testosterone levels in men can lead to a condition called gynecomastia – the development of man boobs.

Hormone Imbalance in Males

Testosterone is a naturally occurring hormone and is responsible for male physical features and mood and energy levels.

When there’s an imbalance of testosterone, gynecomastia can develop. The condition can cause sufferers to feel self-conscious about their bodies.

Both low testosterone and gynecomastia are treatable.

At Meyer Clinic, we treat gynecomastia with CoolSculpting®, the only FDA-approved fat freezing (cryolipolysis) treatment that requires no surgery, no needles and no downtime. This non-invasive, treatment is a body contouring method that reduces fat cells with results that are visible and long-lasting.

In addition to treating gynecomastia, we advise treatment for low testosterone. A consultation with one of our expert medical practitioners may suggest testosterone replacement therapy (TRT).


TRT

Testosterone Replacement Therapy (TRT) is a popular option at Meyer Clinic. Under the direction of leading hormone expert Dr Annelize Meyer, a course of TRT can be prescribed. It is available in a variety of forms including skin gels, patches and injections. Patients who receive TRT usually have noticeable results, often experiencing improvement in energy levels, sex drive, erections, sleep, muscle mass (good for reducing the appearance of ‘moobs’) and mood.

CoolSculpting®

CoolSculpting® is the only FDA-approved treatment to remove fat by freezing. It can work particularly well on the abdomen and chest – specifically, the area referred to as “man boobs” or “moobs”. The treatment targets and destroys fat cells in the selected area and over the coming weeks the body flushes out the crystallised cells. Fat Freezing is a completely non-invasive, safe and effective treatment. It can be carried out during a lunch break as there is no downtime.

Personalised Health Check

A number of medical conditions can cause gynecomastia such as hypogonadism, some types of tumours, hypothyroidism, and liver or kidney failure. Book in for a personalised health check at Meyer Clinic with one of our experienced medical practitioners.
