Do you have “man boobs?” If so, you are not alone. In 2016, the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS) reported that one out of four men have enlarged breasts or gynecomastia. This means that men all over the world are suffering the same confidence issues due to this condition.
What is Gynecomastia?
Naturally, many men begin to focus on their diet and exercise to improve the issue, or simply refuse to remove their shirt when the opportunity presents itself. However, you are experiencing this issue not because of a lack of proper diet or adequate exercise. Gynecomastia is actually excess fatty tissue that can be caused by medications, hormonal imbalances, steroid use, weight loss, and can even be hereditary.
The Gynecomastia Procedure
So, if healthy eating and bench pressing or excessive cardio can’t help, what can?
According to the ASAPS, breast reduction was the second most popular plastic surgery procedure in 2016 among men. This procedure consists of a combination of liposuction and excision techniques. The fatty tissue is first loosened, then removed. The breast and nipple is repositioned to give you natural looking results. It is common for men to be self-conscious about their enlarged breasts, but you shouldn’t have to suffer.
