Having man boobs means you will be tormented, ridiculed, and embarrassed by your peers. For some men, it can be a blow to their masculinity. Not to mention that an unusually large set of breasts is unattractive to many women.
What causes a man’s chest to get bigger?
Also called gynecomastia, this condition is an abnormal yet harmless increase of breast size in men and is often linked with aging and weight gain. This condition may linger, but it may disappear over time. Male breast develops because of hormonal imbalance, liver damage, and excessive alcohol intake. Taking medications that contain estrogen, which is a female hormone, can also develop male breast.
What is male breast reduction surgery?
Male breast reduction surgery is the most common and fastest way to treat gynecomastia. This procedure is also known as liposuction of the breast since it removes fats from a man’s breasts.
Who is a good candidate for this type of surgery?
Now, you might be wondering if breast reduction surgery is right for you. You can benefit much from this surgery if you’re physically healthy, meaning you don’t have any serious disease that can hinder healing. You must also be a non-smoker and have a normal weight.
Before you go through the procedure, the plastic surgeon may require you to undergo a breast x-ray to find out the proper treatment for your breasts. The x-ray helps the surgeon determine the amount of excess skin, fat, and glandular material present in your breasts. If the surgeon has confirmed that you can go on a male breast reduction surgery, he will explain to you the procedure as well as its outcome and risks. If you have any concern with the surgery, ask your surgeon about it right away.
A successful male breast reduction surgery can make a big difference in the appearance of your chest. It will become flat and firmer. You can now confidently bare your chest in the beach or wear that tight-fitting shirt you’ve been hiding in your closet for years.
