3 Reasons Why Men May Choose Male Breast Reduction



Men everywhere seek to feel confident and proud of their bodies, which can include having a sculpted and well-contoured chest. However, for men with gynecomastia (excess breast tissue resulting in enlarged breasts), this is practically impossible even with good diet and exercise. For a man with excess breast tissue, simple things like changing in front of other people or taking his shirt of at the beach can cause embarrassment or social anxiety. Our team at UNC wants to help empower these men to feel confident in their own skin with male breast reduction surgery. We would love to share a number of the benefits that our past and current Raleigh-Durham clients have found. 

More Masculine Physique

This benefit is oftentimes the main reason why our North Carolina men come to us initially to seek male breast reduction surgery. Having enlarged breasts or stretched skin on the upper body, oftentimes doesn’t seem to “fit” an otherwise masculine body.

Male breast reduction acts to give your upper body a complete transformation. Our board certified plastic surgeons at the UNC Aesthetic, Laser & Burn Center will remove excess fat from the chest through a liposuction and stretched skin will be smoothed accordingly. The end result is a more sculpted, masculine chest.

Confidence Boost

Not all of our North Carolina men realize how freeing this procedure helps them feel afterwards. In turn, a confidence boost is often a result of male breast reduction. When you like the way you look, your overall confidence can spill into so many different areas of your life. Confidence to wear fitted shirts or perhaps no shirt at all! Self-assurance to work out at the gym. Composure to pursue romantic opportunities. And perhaps a newfound courage to put yourself out there and try something a little daring. This part of the process, we love to see unfold and makes this procedure worth it for so many men.

Physical Changes

Many men with larger chests know that running and other forms of exercise are difficult. Being able to work out the way they choose is another exciting benefit male breast reduction. You no longer need to let the size of your chest decide if you want choose the stair-stepper, the treadmill, or jumping rope. Freedom from this concern and discomfort, helps many of our North Carolina clients discover a new drive and passion for exercise.

Additionally, some men may not realize that having larger breasts can cause back and shoulder pain. The physical discomfort from having enlarged breasts is a very real symptom. By removing excess weight from the chest, our men are alieved of this discomfort and oftentimes are able to improve their overall posture as well.
