Can Men Get Breast Reduction Surgery?


Breast reduction surgery is something many men may not discuss because they feel it’s a surgery solely for women. Though men don’t have breasts like women, men do have breast tissue. One of the differences between male and female breasts is that female breast tissue develops over time but male breast tissue does not. For the most part, male breast tissue is barely even visible however, it’s common for men to have gynecomastia.


Is when men have swollen or enlarged male breast tissue caused by a hormone imbalance. This can take a toll on men’s confidence which is why men, whose self esteem has been impacted due to their breasts, should consider breast reduction surgery.

Breast reduction surgery is mostly performed on women. It gets rid of excess skin to provide patients with firmer and more youthful breasts. Of course, most men would rather have their excess breast tissue completely removed which is why male breast reduction surgery has a different goal. Though the procedure still removes excess fat and glandular tissue, the goal of the surgery is to restore a flatter and more masculine contour to the chest.

Gynecomastia is common and can happen to men at any age. Breast reduction surgery for men is the most effective way to get rid of unwanted breast tissue by providing patients with results that are long-lasting or even permanent. Because male breasts mostly consist of fat, many men try to burn the fat away in their chest by exercising. This can reduce the appearance of breasts for some men but if the male breasts consist of glandular tissue, exercise may not be enough.
