Embarrassing Man Boobs spark increase in Male Chest Reduction procedures

In recent years, the number of men opting for Cosmetic Surgery has increased significantly. From Face Lifts to Liposuction, it seems men are turning to procedures to improve their appearance, boosting their confidence in the process.

One such procedure that has seen considerable growth is Male Chest Reduction – with men choosing to undergo this to get rid of their ‘embarrassing’ Man Boobs.

Suffering from Gynaecomastia (Man Boobs) means men are unable to reduce the size of their chest through diet and exercise alone. As it is a condition caused by hormonal imbalance, the only effective solution is to have Male Chest Reduction.

Sydney-based Cosmetic Surgeon, Dr Benjamin Norris, discussed the uptick in men having this procedure: “I’m currently doing three to four [Male Chest Reduction procedures] a week compared with one to two ten years ago.”

It’s not just appearance driving the increase in male Cosmetic Surgery though; it’s also about increasing confidence and improving self-esteem – with older men looking to Cosmetic Surgery and Non Surgical treatments to compete against their younger counterparts in the workplace.

A 33-year-old man from Bondi, Sydney described his Male Chest Reduction journey, explaining it was when his Man Boobs began to show through his clothes that he decided to undergo Cosmetic Surgery.

He said: “It was getting embarrassing and I needed help with getting them removed.

“I now go to the beach and train at the gym without feeling uncomfortable or embarrassed about my chest.”

With the subject of Cosmetic Surgery no longer taboo, Cosmetic Surgeons are seeing more and more men enquiring about procedures – with younger men opting for Rhinoplasty (Nose Job), Liposuction and Male Chest Reduction.

Middle aged men are having Blepharoplasty (Eye Bag Removal) and Liposuction, while older men are undergoing Neck Lifts and Face Lifts to turn back the clock.
