There has been a surge of cosmetic and plastic surgery stories revealing teen make-overs to change unwanted features, and avoid self-criticism and bullying from peers. The American Society revealed male breast reduction surgery in teenage boys was second in place, after rhinoplasty. Reportedly, 230, 000 teens between 13-19 had procedures in 2011.
New resources are available online for men who suffer from Gynecomastia, a condition that causes their breast tissue to grow and reveal man boobs or “moobs.” The American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) launched a new website, Gynecomastia.org to help men learn more about the causes, and to find solutions and surgeons to treat it.
With summer just around the corner, men who suffer from large breasts and a condition called gynecomastia may feel anxious about their beach bods and going shirtless at pool parties. There are cosmetic solutions, and male breast reduction is more common and less invasive than most might think. Liposculpture can remove excess fatty tissue around the male breasts and help restore confidence.
