The thought of a bodybuilder with breasts seems to be sort of confusing and unbelievable, but you’d better believe it. Body builders get gynecomastia all the time.

The reason for this is the fact that many, not all, bodybuilders subject themselves to an environment that is submerged in hormone imbalance: steroids.

Bodybuilding and steroids advice from our gynecomastia New York NY surgeon.Anabolic steroids, technically known as anabolic-androgenic steroids (AAS), are drugs that have similar effects to testosterone in the body. They increase protein within cells, especially in skeletal muscles.

Negative side effects of steroid use include harmful changes in cholesterol levels, acne, high blood pressure, liver damage, and harmful changes in the structure of the left ventricle of the heart.

Aside from these internal side effects, the bombardment of testosterone on the male body increases chances for hormonal balances exponentially.

Since gynecomastia is a condition that is brought on by increased levels in estrogen or the inability to break down estrogen properly, it’s no wonder many bodybuilders walk themselves unknowingly into this unfortunate predicament.
