Male breast reduction is one of the top elective surgical procedures for men in the United States. The development of female type breasts on men does not only affect men in the United States, but it is a troublesome condition for men all over the world!

For example, Scotland has a growing number of surgical clinics making elective procedures more available. Cosmetic surgery for men has doubled in the last decade. Gynecomastia surgery is up 13% from 2014. Most men who seek male breast reduction are younger men who work out at a gym or men who have a sagging chest from significant weight loss.

There was an article published in Singapore about a man named David (not his real name) who had gynecomastia. David who is now is his 40’s had been suffering from female type breasts since his 20’s. He tried to ignore his condition, but in addition to the appearance of his breasts, they were painful. Finally, he sought medical attention as he was afraid he might be having heart problems, but his exam showed no medical issues.

David then turned to diet and exercise, and although he lost weight, his chest remained the same, and the pain continued. Through extensive research online David discovered that he might have gynecomastia. David located a gynecomastia specialist who confirmed his suspicions. With his wife’s support, David scheduled surgery. After David’s recovery, he was thrilled to see that he had a normal looking chest and his chest pain was gone. He stated that after all these years he now feels like a “real man.”

David was anxious to share his story with the hope that he would be encouraging other men to seek solutions to their “man boobs” and not wait 20 years like he did.
