Erectile Dysfunction and Gynecomastia. Blog By Advanced Cosmetic Surgery of NY located in Long Island and NYC.

Many men suffer from erectile dysfunction (ED) and never seek help. Many are too embarrassed to admit that it’s a real problem because they believe it’s a condition only for older men. The reality is that out of the men who do seek care for the problem, nearly half (48.8%) are under the age of 40.

About Erectile Dysfunction (ED)

ED is a condition that keeps men from getting and keeping an erection to enjoy sexual intercourse. Many have this issue throughout their life, but those who suffer from it consistently end up suffering from associated effects such as a lack of sexual satisfaction, relationship problems, and self-esteem issues.

How Gynecomastia Plays a Role

Gynecomastia, enlarged male breasts, is a condition that plagues many men. While it may not cause any physical pain or discomfort, it can lead to diminished confidence, and a great deal of stress when men have to reveal their chest. It can unfortunately be damaging to a man’s self-esteem in the bedroom, which is what could lead to problems with an erection.

Gynecomastia correction surgery is a viable solution for men who are bothered by their enlarged breasts. This procedure removes overdeveloped breast tissue and restores a flat, tight chest area.

Some men who seek male breast reduction end up not needing ED treatment. The confidence and self-esteem boost they get from the procedure is sometimes enough to bring back their comfort in the bedroom and thus, sexual satisfaction.

Note: Always see your primary doctor first if you’re experiencing ED to rule out any causes that may require immediate medical attention.
