Despite regular exercise and dieting, a lot of men can’t seem to eliminate the problem of enlarged breasts. If this describes your situation, you’ve probably had to wear oversized sweatshirts to hide the problem. Gynecomastia can be a very embarrassing condition, and it causes enlargement of male breasts.
According to some of the latest statistics, about half of all men have enlarged breasts. The psychological impact of this condition can be huge, and it can affect teenage and adult males. It’s quite common for teenage males to develop enlarged breasts because of changing sex hormones. In many cases, the problem can resolve without any external help; but if it doesn’t resolve, it might be time to consider male breast reduction.
Are You a Good Candidate?
If you’re emotionally stable and healthy, you could be a great candidate for male breast reduction. You should have a healthy body weight, and you should have at least one breast that is affected by gynecomastia. An ideal candidate will also have great skin elasticity and realistic expectations.
How Male Breast Reduction Works
The details of each procedure vary from patient to patient, since each body is unique. If you have breasts that are small and soft, our surgeon may fix the problem with minimal liposuction and contouring. If you have large, fibrous breasts, then he can restore the normal size of your breasts and then sculpt them to create more masculine contours.
It can take months to see the full results of the surgery, so you shouldn’t expect to see results immediately after the procedure. However, once you have fully recovered, you won’t believe what a difference this surgery makes in your life.
What are the Benefits?
Men who have enlarged breasts are likely to have self-confidence issues. It’s not natural for a man to have enlarged breasts, and it can make you extremely self-conscious about your body image. The reduced confidence caused by the problem can cause a variety of negative ripple effects in your life.
The greatest benefit of undergoing surgery is the increased self-confidence that you’ll gain. Once the problem is corrected, you’ll be able to enjoy a flat, attractive chest, and you should experience a huge increase in your quality of life.
