Both men and women choose to have breast surgery for various reasons. They may be seeking to improve their appearance or even to address health concerns. But a guy can be more reluctant to head to the doctor, even if he has acknowledged to himself and others that the appearance of his chest is causing him grief. And unfortunately, just as it is for women who are unhappy with their breast size, eating right and exercise can’t always create the desired results. So more than ever, men are beginning to seek out information about breast surgery — to find out what they can do that really will make a difference.
The most common reason for male breast surgery?
It’s called gynecomastia, the formation of firm breast gland tissue in men. Bottom line, it can cause men to develop breasts that appear female. Here are some reasons:
- Weight gain or loss
- Use of certain drugs like hormones or steroids
- Fatty tumors
- Genetic predisposition
- Hormonal imbalances
- Sometimes no cause is found
Regardless of the reason, however, it is a condition that many boys and men are unwilling to talk about. But that’s changing. That’s because the increase in the popularity of cosmetic plastic surgery procedures for men in general is also making it easier to seek out help for gynecomastia.
