Male Breast Reduction Rises In Popularity

Our experienced plastic surgeon, Dr. Steven H. Turkeltaub, discusses how treatment for gynecomastia can change men’s lives.

I believe that many men who are ideal candidates for male breast reduction surgery shy away from the procedure either due to the fear of surgery itself or the anticipated cost. These individuals suffer from an excess amount of breast tissue, known as gynecomastia, which often makes them feel self-conscious and embarrassed. Even the smallest amounts of increased tissue can be quite problematic for some. It is not uncommon for some men to wear two or more t-shirts, including a compression one, even in the hot summer months in order to hide their physical “deformity.”

The results from male breast reduction surgery can be extremely successful, resulting in markedly improved or normal appearing breasts and providing a boost in confidence, self-esteem and social interactions.

At the Arizona Center for Breast Surgery, we have seen a steady increase in the number of men seeking breast reduction surgery. Most of them have researched gynecomastia on the internet, learning that this condition is quite common and that plastic surgery treatment is relatively straight-forward and highly successful. The majority of my male breast reduction patients discover my practice either from viewing my website, www.arizonabreast.com, or from talking with other patients of mine who have been very happy with their results and then coming to the office for a consultation and more detailed information.

Taking that first step can make all the difference toward feeling better about the way you look! To obtain comprehensive information on male breast reduction, you can schedule your free cosmetic consultation with me.
