Many men throw around the idea of getting gynecomastia correction surgery for months or even years before making a decision. During the decision making process, many men continue to feel the effects of their condition – insecurity, embarrassment, and depression.
With the following reasons, we hope that many men will decide to have the procedure done sooner. This can not only resolve the condition, but the feelings associated with it.
#1: The cause is eliminated.
If the cause of the enlarged male breasts is eliminated, the chances of them coming back is slim to none (barring any significant weight gain or taking certain medications). This means that once the breast fat and glands are removed, you no longer have to fear that they will return. It will be a great peace of mind.
#2: It’s constantly on your mind.
If you can’t stop thinking about your chest, it’s a good idea to see your doctor and a cosmetic surgeon about having the procedure. You should focus on what makes you happy in life, not what makes you feel unhappy.
#3: It interferes in your personal/romantic life.
Many men who suffer from enlarged breasts are embarrassed about taking their shirt off in front of romantic partners. This can have an enormous impact on sexual satisfaction and personal relationships.
#4: You’re wearing loose clothing or a compression garment.
Wearing loose clothing or a compression garment to hide your chest is a sign that it’s time to have the procedure. We shouldn’t be ashamed of our body. We should feel secure and proud of it. If resolving your enlarged breasts will help you feel this way, contact us for a free consultation.
#5: You’re worried about male breast cancer risk.
The risk of breast cancer in men is 1%, but studies have found that men suffering from gynecomastia as a result of Klinefelter Syndrome have a slightly greater risk of developing cancer. Gynecomastia correction surgery can remove the benign male breast growth, which could help detect future tumors earlier.
Surgery may seem invasive, but it is a common procedure. Many men every year decide to have the procedure with our male breast reduction specialists. According to American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS), there was an 8% increase in procedures in 2014 and that rate has been increasing since then, now totaling over 19,000 per year.
