Male Breast Reduction
The term Gynecomastia, (meaning: women-like breasts) refers to overdeveloped and enlarged male breasts – a condition that is far more common than it is realized. Currently, gynecomastia affects around 50% of the male population.
Gynecomastia (male breast reduction) affects men of all ages. Although the development of fat around the chest during puberty is normal, and in most cases the problem gets resolved with maturity, yet for some, the problem persists into adulthood.
The appearance of an overdeveloped chest (Man Boobs) can occur due to a number of reasons and it may affect only one breast or both. While it is widely accepted that a large percentage of cases derive from unknown sources, some of the well known factors that may contribute to enlarged male breasts are:
- medical conditions such as cancer or impaired liver function,
- consumption of certain drugs such as anabolic steroids, and
- overuse of medications containing estrogen, alcohol and marijuana
- Stubborn masses of fat in certain areas that defy all diet and exercise regimen
- On the other hand, rapid weight loss or aging can also cause a sagging of the skin across the chest making the breasts look more pronounced
Abnormally outgrown chest is an issue for a lot of men nowadays. If you feel that any of the above reasons may have affected you or if your chest is not looking the same it did when you were younger then male breast reduction is for you! Male breast reduction surgery can also remove the skin that sags across the chest due to weight loss, or ageing.
The breast reduction procedure has become so popular today that it has become the second most asked for surgery in men. This is due mainly to the fact that Gynecomastia(Male Breast Reduction) affects men in many ways physically, psychologically and socially.
The bodies of men with enlarged breasts are often disproportionately figured with noticeable, women-like breasts, giving rise to a lack of self esteem and self confidence. This disproportion also causes them trouble buying clothes or going topless to the gym or swimming because of feeling self conscious. Unwelcome comments from friends or work colleagues are another source of embarrassment.
If you want a chest that is more flatter, firmer and better contoured we would advise you coming in for a consultation and advice on whether this procedure is for you, and for more information about your options.
