The overdevelopment of male breasts, also known as gynecomastia, affects an estimated 40 to 60 percent of men. This condition may be caused by a hormonal imbalance, side effects from drugs, or may occur without any underlying identifiable cause. Regardless of what led to the enlargement of male breasts, the condition may create physical as well as psychological issues for men who are affected by it.
Men with large or sagging breasts can feel both physically and emotionally uncomfortable, often restricting themselves from certain activities because they are self-conscious about their appearance. Gynecomastia surgery aims to produce male breast reduction, thereby decreasing the size of a man’s breasts, helping him feel more comfortable, self-assured, and confident.
Benefits Of Male Breast Reduction Procedure
A good candidate for male breast reduction surgery is any man who feels uncomfortable with his large breast size. The procedure can be performed on men of all ages from adolescence onwards, who are in good health, both physically and emotionally. The best candidates for male breast reduction surgery have excellent skin tone so that it will reshape well to their body’s new contours.
