Male Breast Reduction Surgery


When the thought of plastic surgery comes to mind, most people associate it with women— breast implants, nose jobs, and Botox. However, although not as common as women undergoing plastic surgery, men can still undergo many forms of plastic surgery, including but not limited to, male breast reduction surgery.

What Is Male Breast Reduction Surgery?
Male Breast ReductionSimilar to female breast reduction surgery, male breast reduction surgery is the surgical process of removing excess fat and breast tissue around the breast area in order to give men a more chiseled and flat appearance. During this procedure, patients will be under anesthesia the entire time and so they will not feel a thing. However, during the recovery process, the patient will likely be required to wear either some form of compression sleeve around their breast region or a thick gauze bandage. During recovery, patients will also be prohibited from excercise, any sort of heavy lifting or activities that may cause strain on their breast region.

Why Breast Reduction Surgery for Men?
Although not recognized by many as common, a large population of men suffer from oversized breasts that they just can’t get rid of. Either attributed to sudden weight gain/weight loss, or the use of male enhancement supplements for weight training, many males suffer from overly large breasts which cause them to feel ashamed and embarrassed.

Will there be scarring?

Male breast reduction surgery is nothing to be ashamed of. And although the thought of friends and significant others learning about this surgery might be a bit embarrassing, you won’t have to divulge it to them unless you want. Due to the location of the surgical incisions— typically under the armpit— scarring is very minimal and hard to spot even with your shirt off.
