Gynecomastia, or excess male breast tissue, will affect at least 30% of men in their lifetime. However, knowing you’re not alone isn’t always enough to accept the condition. Our patients at Park Meadows Cosmetic Surgery often express embarrassment and discomfort with their excess breast tissue. Our board-certified cosmetic surgeons are committed to helping you feel more comfortable in your skin.
While treating underlying health issues can sometimes minimize excess breast tissue, many men find their gynecomastia isn’t responsive. If you’re in that group and want a more masculine physique, male breast reduction surgery could be right for you. Patients rave about these three significant benefits.
1. You Can Confidently Enjoy Activities You Were Avoiding
If you’ve been avoiding taking your shirt off at the beach or the gym because of excess breast tissue, you know the psychological toll this condition can have. Many adult patients report feeling insecure about gynecomastia since they were adolescents due to school bullying. Some say the condition has impacted their dating life. The confidence boost male breast reduction brings can have a major impact. You don’t need to hold off on enjoying your life any longer.
2. You’ll Look Better With Your Shirt On Too
While many of our patients who get male breast reduction surgery are excited to go for a swim and show off their new physique, you’ll enjoy the additional benefit of shirts fitting better. From button-ups to thin t-shirts, men’s clothing is cut more narrowly over the chest. Instead of hiding under baggy clothes, you’ll be able to update your wardrobe with what you truly want to wear.
3. Exercise Can Be More Comfortable
Gynecomastia can get in the way of living an active lifestyle. After you’ve fully recovered from your surgery, you might find building up toned pectoral muscles feels more comfortable without the chafing that can come from excess breast tissue. Your posture may also improve without the extra weight on your chest.
