The Emotional and Physical Benefits of Male Breast Reduction

Gynecomastia surgery benefitsAt the Plastic Surgery Group at City Centre, our team of board certified plastic surgeons have helped thousands of men alleviate the physical and emotional distress caused by gynecomastia, a medical condition commonly referred to as “man boobs.”

If you are bothered by enlarged male breast tissue, we encourage you to read on as we discuss some of the ways male contouring surgery for male breasts can improve quality of life.

A More Masculine-Looking Chest

Male contouring surgery for male breasts is a procedure that trims excess breast skin and tissue to create a flatter and firmer chest. Following the procedure, men can enjoy a more classically masculine appearance.

Relief from Chafing, Skin Irritation and Rashes

It’s not uncommon for men with enlarged breast tissue to experience painful chafing, skin irritation or rashes due to excess tissue and folds of skin that rub together during exercise and sports. By removing folds of skin and tissue, male contouring surgery can make it easier to exercise and play sports. In addition, many men say they are motivated to stay in shape following surgery to maintain their newly sculpted chest.

Clothes Fit Better

Men with excessive breast tissue often wear oversized or baggy clothing to hide their “man boobs.” Thanks to male contouring surgery, men can wear more form fitting and flattering clothing that will show off their improved chest contour. They may also feel more comfortable taking off their shirts at the pool, gym or beach.

Boost in Self-Confidence and Quality of Life

Some men with enlarged breast tissue feel so self-conscious about their appearance that they become depressed, anxious or avoid certain social activities and events. Their negative feelings and attitudes about their chest and appearance can transfer over to their everyday interactions with the people around them. After male breast contouring surgery, men are very pleased with their results, and whatever negative feelings they had about “man boobs” resolve. Men feel more confident in their own skin and around others, leading to an improved quality of life.
