Redefine Your Pecs
Gynecomastia can lead to low self-esteem and diminished self-confidence. Through male breast reduction surgery, you can have a masculine chest that’s buffer and stronger looking.
You have man boobs. Your chest looks like a woman’s, so much so that you could even fill out a bra. It’s deeply embarrassing and you may even get teased about it by other guys. That’s why you never wear thin shirts or go swimming, because you’re constantly trying to hide your chest.
Gynecomastia, the technical term for men with enlarged breasts, is usually caused by increased estrogen activity, decreased testosterone activity, excess fat, or the use of numerous medications. It is a common complaint, accounting for 65% of reported male breast disorders. This condition can occur at any age and can stem from hormonal changes, heredity, or obesity.
You are not alone. Enlarged male breasts occur in 40-60% of men. Once an underlying health condition has been ruled out, your quality of life and mental health can be greatly improved by male breast reduction surgery. While diet, exercise, and avoiding medications that would increase the size of your breast tissue are important components of your health, surgically correcting the problem can offer the greatest chance of success at obtaining a masculine chest.
