Move your cursor over the arrows below and the drawing will demonstrate aspects of male chest anatomy.
The normal male breast has a contour made by muscle, fat, and skin. There can be glandular tissue that can range from a very small to quite large mass. Check out variations in this Gynecomastia Gland Photo Gallery. Contour of the chest comes from the underlying elements. Muscle shape is important for the shape of the breast, exercise can be important to improve the "male look" by improving the tone of the muscles.
Excess fat or gland especially along the lower breast can make the chest have a "female" contour. Diet and exercise can help with generalized fat, but cannot be directed to the specific shape of the chest fat. Neither diet nor exercise will help with glandular tissues. As the muscle size increases, fat and gland are pushed further towards the surface making them more obvious.
Surgical contouring can address the localized fat and gland. There are many pages of details about cosmetic male chest contouring options. However, the best place to explore your concerns is during a consultation. Dr. Bermant and his staff will be glad to help you better understand your options during a consultation after an evaluation.
