3 Reasons for Male Breast Reduction

Landon Plastic Surgery

Tampa Male Breast Reduction PatientThere are at least a hundred jokes on the internet and in comedy about man boobs. But for men who have gynecomastia it is no laughing matter. Gynecomastia is the clinical name for the condition that causes men to develop breast tissue. It is typically caused by an imbalance in hormones, although weight gain and other health conditions may also contribute to the condition.

If you have gynecomastia, one option is a male breast reduction. The surgery is done on an outpatient basis, and it is extremely successful. There is a recovery period, but it is usually just a few weeks before you will be back to your old self completely. Here are three reasons to go ahead with a male breast reduction.

Unable to Tone Down

Sometimes when breast gain is related to weight gain, it can be difficult to rid yourself of the excess breast tissue. Even with losing weight and dedicated exercise, you may not be able to tone down the size of your chest. When all else fails and you want to reap the benefits of your weight loss, male breast reduction surgery can eliminate the excess fat, tissue, and skin and help you have the body you imagined when you started your weight loss journey.

Self Esteem and Self Confidence

How you feel about yourself affects every aspect of your life. Your self-esteem and self-confidence affect your level of success in your career, communication and understanding in romantic relationships, and how you get along with your family and friends. If you want to be successful in life, you must first learn to love yourself. That can be difficult to do when you have a physical feature that is the butt of everyone’s jokes. Male breast reduction surgery could restore your self-esteem and self-confidence so that you can live your best life.

Improved Social Outlook

When you are self-conscious about your body, you are going to have a difficult time being social. You may have a hard time talking to women, or spending any real time with them. You may also find that many women look the other way. When you get male breast reduction surgery, it will improve your social outlook—not just because you improved your appearance, but because you will have more confidence and be more comfortable around the opposite sex.
