While we may not always think that men can be just as self-conscious about their bodies as women, it’s totally true. Body image is just as important to men as it to the so-called fairer sex and men struggling with over-developed breasts, or Gynecomastia, often have a hard time accepting and liking their bodies. What many men who visit Artisan Aesthetics Plastic Surgery & Laser Center don’t realize is that breast reduction surgery is an option for them.
Gynecomastia—the presence of enlarged breasts in men—is a relatively new topic of discussion. For a long time now, men with enlarged breasts have suffered in silence because gynecomastia is not commonly talked about amongst friends. Slowly, however, men are becoming more comfortable talking with a trusted plastic surgeon such as Tampa’s Dr. Castor. Upon meeting prospective patients, Dr. Castor has found that there are many misconceptions about male breast reduction surgery.
