Recent statistics have shown that plastic surgery is quickly becoming more popular among men. Rates of male breast reduction surgery, for example, continue to increase. In 2015, there were a total of 68,106 breast reductions performed in the US. Of that total, 27,456 were performed on male patients, according to recent statistics from the American Society of Plastic Surgeons. To put that number a different way:
- Men made up more than 40 percent of the breast reductions performed in 2015
- Male breast reduction increased 5 percent from 2014
- Male breast reduction has increased 35 percent since the year 2000
Cosmetic surgery has never been only for women, but it appears today's men are more aware of their own cosmetic goals and feelings of self-esteem. For a man suffering from gynecomastia, a condition that causes enlarged male breast tissue, male breast reduction can restore feelings of masculinity and confidence. Some men have lived with this condition since adolescence, while others may develop an excess of fatty tissue over the pectoral muscles later in life. Male breast reduction decreases this tissue, revealing a tighter, more sculpted chest.
