Women grow breasts naturally due to increased levels of female hormones in their bodies. These hormones are present for the formation of the female sex organs needed to reproduce. One of those attributes is beast development for the use of feeding babies with milk, just as all mammals do. However, the development of breasts in men or "man boobs" is often a result of factors and influences from outside of the body. When purposely seeking to increase the size of this area of a man's physique, many different methods can be taken to achieve varied results.

Step 1

Take organic phytoestrogen supplements or treatments. You can buy these in drugstores in the form of topical creams and vitamins. Phytoestrogen are plant hormones that are similar in their chemical structure to the natural human female hormone estrogen. Because phytoestrogen is a natural means of receiving similar results as taking more regulated hormones, like estrogen, you will be less likely to experience negative effects. It is relatively mild in its approach and is a good starting point for male breast development.

Step 2

Take natural female hormones. Female hormones such, as estrogen and progesterone, are the natural chemicals produced in the female body to grow breasts. The presence of these within a woman's body contributes to breast growth, and consequently, can cause equal results when taken by men looking to increase breast size. This is the most effective and natural means of attaining breast growth in men. This is a prescription-only hormone and is done under the supervision of a doctor. Using female hormones could cause a reduction in the ability for a male to reproduce.

Step 3

Contact a plastic surgeon to see if breast enhancement is right for you. Breast augmentation is the fastest and most efficient means of achieving breast formation in a man. However, it is expensive, and has risks associated with its practice, just like any other invasive surgery. Be open and honest with your doctor about all previous medical conditions before pursuing this option. While this is the most effective means of achieving breast development in males, it is to the benefit to the male to have a good foundation of breast development from hormones to achieve the most natural results.

Step 4

Increase your intake in calories to gain not only more body mass, but breast mass as well. This is perhaps the most common reason for the development of man boobs and should be pursued to enhance other steps. Female anatomies naturally produce more fat than males. By adding a more weight through eating, you can provide a more natural look to your man boobs.
