Men who have excess breast tissue and fat in the chest might be diagnosed with a condition called gynecomastia. This condition is not harmful, but it can impact one’s self-confidence and self-esteem. Even with weight loss, men above the average weight may still have noticeable breasts that cause them to avoid situations where they may be shirtless. Fortunately, the social stigma associated with men having enlarged breast tissue can be a problem of the past with plastic surgery procedures such as breast reduction. Dr. Thomas Wiener works with men who have gynecomastia to provide them solutions to achieve a more manly appearance.
How can men benefit from gynecomastia surgery?
With male breast reduction surgery, men can remove the excess fat and tissue in the chest area to achieve a more masculine look to the upper body.
Below are just a few of the ways in which men can benefit from gynecomastia surgery:
- Improved self-esteem and confidence – men who are insecure regarding the appearance of their chest will often deal with embarrassment when it comes to situations where their large breasts are noticeable to others. Patients who have breast reduction performed often become more socially active due to improved confidence.
- Improved masculine figure – having breasts and being compared to the female contours is not something a man wants to hear. When men are unhappy with their excess breast tissue and fat, they feel as though they are being compared to the other gender.
- Improves the ability to perform physical activities. Many physical activities performed with larger breasts can be uncomfortable, which many women with larger breasts will find. By removing the breasts in men, they are often more motivated to stay fit and work out for a stronger, more masculine look.
