One Side Of My Chest Is Bigger Than The Other

If one side of your chest is bigger than the other…

It depends if the asymmetry is muscular in nature, or due to fat/glandular tissue. To keep it simple, let's say the left side of your chest is bigger than the right side (the same advice would apply if the right side of your chest was bigger than the left).

More Fat/Glandular Tissue On One Side

If there's more fat/glandular tissue on the left side of your chest, then the first thing you should do is see your doctor, since asymmetrical gynecomastia is more likely to be associated with an underlying disease process than symmetrical gynecomastia.

If your doctor checks you and there is no underlying disease process, then I would advise you to proceed with natural male breast reduction techniques, as though you had symmetrical gynecomastia. The same methods that work with symmetrical gynecomastia, work with asymmetrical gynecomastia just the same. You can learn about these methods in the following free video on How To Lose Man Boobs Naturally:

More Muscle On One Side

If you have more muscle in your left chest than right, then you can do two things:

1. Get a personal trainer to help you perfect your exercise form. Sometimes muscular imbalances come from poor exercise form.

2. You can try to balance things out by spending more time and effort in growing muscle on the weaker side of the body (i.e. your right side). You might for example, for some time, train just the right chest using a dumbbell, or doing single arm push-ups.

  1. If you have unbalanced muscles anywhere on your body (not just chest) you should not only focus on correcting form but also work on activating those muscles. The best way I’ve found to do that is to just do a lift that uses that muscle with really light weight and focus intensely on contracting that specific muscle. Gotta get that mind muscle connection. Without it, you won’t contract the muscle and it won’t grow, and that’s how you end up with muscle imbalances!

    • Yep absolutely. I had to do this with my hamstrings and hamstring curls – I didn’t realize it for long time but when I was doing squats I wasn’t activating my hamstrings at all, it was pure quads. It turned out I just didn’t “know” how to use my hamstrings, but doing hamstring curls taught me how. Now I’ve just gotta do the same for my glutes… I’m still terrible at activating those.

  2. Hey, I have recently purchased and read your book ” How to loose man boobs ” and I have found it extremely interesting in its approach through hormonal mechanisms.
    I have 2 questions regarding this article on asymmetrical gynecomastia, one specific to my case and one more general :

    1. I developed gynecomastia at puberty, at this time it was very noticeable (especially since I was skinny so it couldn’t be seen as just excessive fat). I’m pretty sure it was symmetrical and I could very well feel the glandular tissue, like I could practically isolate it from the muscle tissue beneath, using my fingers. After puberty (I’m now 22), it’s mostly gone, but my tits still have this swollen aspect to them, and one moreso than the other. Is it reasonable to think it’s only still that way because during the time in my teens when I had a bad hormone inbalance, the excess of estrogens there led to the creation of fat tissue in my chest, and that because of this, even if the glandular tissue is gone, my chest is still puffy because that’s where my body stores fat in priority? Or, and that leads me to my second, more general question :

    2. In this article, and in most of what you write about loosing manboobs, you seem to not make any difference between gynecomastia and adipomastia in regards to the solutions to make it go away.
    Everywhere else on the internet, people distinguish the “excessive fat tissue ” manboobs from the ” glandular tissue ” manboobs, and claim that the latter can only be treated with surgery.
    So, if I still have glandular tissue in there, will the natural testosterone enhancing methods you propose help it disappear?

    Apologies for the excessively long message.

    • Hi John

      1. It could be that there is some glandular tissue left under your puffier nipple, it could be that the nipple expanded during puberty, and despite the gland being gone, the nipple remained expanded. It could also be like you say, that your body has developed a predisposition to storing more fat under that nipple.

      2. The reason I make no distinction between gynecomastia and adipomastia, is because in my experience, both conditions are caused by a high estrogen to testosterone ratio, and both conditions respond to the same forms of treatment. Sure, fat is easier to get rid of than glandular tissue using natural methods, but studies have shown that glandular tissue in persistent pubertal gynecomastia responds to drugs like tamoxifen and raloxifine, which means they must also respond to the natural methods in my program, which bring about similar changes in the body.
