As a man, when you have exhausted all avenues to reduce your large breasts through diet, exercise, and living a healthy lifestyle – reduction surgery can be the answer. Overcome your inhibitions and revive your self-esteem. Worries about recovering from surgery should not deter you from making the choice to undergo a male breast reduction. This is especially true when your overall body is in good shape.
Benefits of Male Breast Reduction Surgery
Men having large breasts – a condition known as gynecomastia – are typically inhibited by the appearance of their chest. Even though gynecomastia is not a medical condition requiring breast reduction surgery, elimination of this embarrassing condition can increase a man’s overall self-esteem.
When self-consciousness is eliminated, a man can lead a more proactive, healthy lifestyle, and gain the confidence to be more outgoing socially.
Self-esteem gains from male breast reduction surgery include:
- Removal of fat tissue
- Removal of glandular tissue
- Removal of excess skin, if necessary
The results are a flat, firm, sculpted chest profile.
Lifestyle Changes To Boost Male Breast Reduction Surgery Outcome
Post-surgery, you must be proactive and make changes to your lifestyle choices. This will reduce the chances of gynecomastia reoccurring. These pro choices will maintain your physical, mental, and financial investment in the procedure.
These pro-lifestyle choices are:
- Reducing alcohol and sugar consumption
- Not smoking or using chewing tobacco products in any form (no vaping allowed)
- Not taking steroids or hormonal supplements of any kind (Rx or OTC)
- Exercising regularly, including a cardiovascular regimen
- Eating fruits and vegetables with an emphasis on veggies of color
Breast reduction surgery can increase your self-confidence and make you proud of your appearance. However, it may not meet your idealistic expectations. It is important that you speak honestly with your doctor about the change to your looks you believe is ideal.
