Which is the hormone related to gynecomastia?
The hormone responsible for moobs (another way to call boobs in men) is estrogen. Men produce much more testosterone than estrogen. If, for any cause, more estrogen is produced, one of the effects is that the breast grow.
I’m a teenager, how can I get rid of moobs?
Teenagers go through severe hormone changes, and that’s a cause for gynecomastia. However, as soon as the hormone balance again, moobs will disappear by themselves, there’s no need to do anything.
I am not a teenager anymore and I still have man boobs. How can I lose them?
If you’re overweight, go on diet and exercise a lot. Loosing weight will help you to lose your breast.

Aerobic exercise converts fat into energy and therefore is the best exercise to get rid of moobs. Walking, jogging, step and skiing are all good examples of aerobic exercise.

What if I don’t like exercise and don’t want to go on diet or they’re not effective?
You can undergo surgery. It involves total or partial anesthesia, cutting your chest, mini liposuction of the fat in the chest, readjusting of the skin and possibly repositioning of the nipples.
