lipohypertrophy and exercise

Jan 19, 2009

Unfortunately, I have unusual fat accumulation in too many areas of my body(buffalo hump, gynecomasy,pubic area) My doctor always tells me the more fat I keep burning at the gym the more these areas will shrink. Do you agree or is he just trying to keep me motivated.

Response from Mr. Vergel

To be honest with you, I have seen little improvement is decreasing buffalo humps or increased breast size (gynecomastia) with exercise. Tell your doctor to refer you to a doctor that can perform surgery and get insurance companies to pay for it. More info on doctors here:
