Men may develop large breasts for a number of different reasons, including genetics, changes in weight, hormonal changes, and the use of certain medication. An estimation shows that approximately 50 percent of men in the United States undergo a level of gynecomastia in their lives. It can occur at any age. When it is present, male breast reduction can be performed safely to manage the development of male breasts. It can be done on teenagers, as well as adults.

Today, the most popular and active treatment for gynecomastia, or distended male breasts, is male breast reduction. A male breast reduction surgery is a cosmetic surgery where extra fat and glandular tissue is removed in order to restore a firm, flat and more masculine look to a man’s chest.

Reasons For Male Breast Reduction

Shedding excess weight can help male breasts look less obvious for some men. However, sometimes, there is more glandular tissue also, and that causes the enlargement of male breast in even very thin or lean patients. At present, the reduction of male breast is the only treatment that is effective for gynecomastia and can have a long-lasting effect.

It may not be permanent, but will deliver significant results. After the surgery, patients report that they feel comfortable even if they have to open their shirts while taking part in activities like swimming. It also helps in boosting one’s self-confidence and gives them an opportunity to be comfortable and confident about their body and about how they look.

If you are not very comfortable or feeling self-conscious about the way your chest appears, and if you feel that, not taking part in some activities will be better, as you might have to be shirtless then male breast reduction is a good option for you to consider. When performed by a qualified cosmetic surgeon, the procedure will provide you with a significant improvement, and you will have minimal post-surgical marks.

Choosing A Qualified Surgeon

Male breast reduction is a simple surgical procedure that doesn’t involve severe risks and can provide you with great results. Before undergoing the procedure, however, you will need to find a qualified professional through a great deal of research.

The doctor you find should display a certain level of professionalism and exhibit the skills necessary to help you acquire the aesthetically pleasing look you desire. You have to ensure sure that your cosmetic surgeon is skilled and is regularly performing male breast reduction as part of his or her practice. You should ask about how many procedures he has performed in the past. You should also request pictures of prior patients to get an idea of what to expect from the procedure.

After finding out more about their skills and experience, you should schedule an information consultation to find out if you will make a good candidate for the procedure. Ideal candidates are in good general health, have realistic expectations, and are ready to follow any instructions provided by the doctor.
