Excessively developed breasts in men (gynecomastia) are more a source of an embarrassment than physical trauma. Excessive breast tissue and fat in the chest area occur due to hormonal imbalance during adolescence or old age, intake of steroids or estrogen, side effects from certain drugs, or some types of cancer treatment. Usually, gynecomastia symptoms decrease when the underlying conditions are treated. However, in many men, the symptoms do not go away, and that’s why breast reduction surgery to remove the excess fat and tissue, is gaining popularity. The 2013 annual reports of leading plastic surgery authorities in the country provide ample proof of this.

According to the reports from the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS), breast reduction in men was the fourth most popular male cosmetic surgery procedure. Up to 23,000 procedures performed in 2013, up by 11% from 2012. ASPS statistics also show that gynecomastia is a popular cosmetic surgery among teenage boys in the U.S.

Statistics from the American Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS) also indicate similar trends. Male breast reduction procedures ranked fourth in the list of popular cosmetic surgery procedures for men in 2013. According to this report, 22,638 gynecomastia procedures were performed in 2013.

Opting to have gynecomastia treatment is a life-altering decision. Excessively large male breasts due to build up of glandular tissue or fat cells, or major weight loss can be effectively resolved with the treatment. The availability of safe, advanced liposuction techniques to remove the excess fat and contour the chest have contributed to popularity of the procedure. Highlights of treatment at an established plastic surgery practice may include:

  • Minimally invasive and proven procedures
  • Use of local anesthesia for improved safety
  • Reduced surgical trauma and bruising
  • Less downtime, outpatient procedure
  • Fast recovery and return to normal activity

While earlier it was women who went in for cosmetic treatments, things have changed and now more and more men taking advantage of the possibilities offered by cosmetic surgery to enhance their looks. Whether it’s to climb the corporate ladder, enhance self-esteem, and improve social life, cosmetic procedures such as breast reduction surgery help men accomplish their goals safely and efficiently.
