Being a woman who has small breasts can surely tax her self esteem particularly with the emphasis on a fuller, bigger is better voluptuous look. Fortunately, there is a very good solution to this – a breast augmentation.

Probably an even worse hit to one’s self esteem is a guy who has large breasts. Not muscular, sculpted pecs but curvy, projecting, feminine appearing ones. Maybe not necessarily a “B” or “C” cup but feminine appearing ones nevertheless.

No doubt about it gynecomastia!

This is a sizable reality check particularly for the testosterone fueled male.

Gynecomastia not only significantly impacts a male’s psyche but also can substantially affect activities engaged in as well as the type of clothing worn. Boys and men with enlarged breasts fear having to take their shirt off in public such as at a beach, pool or even for sports that require one team to be shirtless. They may avoid going to the gym to work out because of their breast enlargement. Loose, baggy shirts often are worn or even multiple layers of them just to camouflage or hide the presence of their gynecomastia. This includes even during the blistering hot summertime, making the reasons for this strategy all the more obvious.

Fortunately for the vast majority of men/boys who have gynecomastia, the surgical treatment is relatively simple, straightforward, successful and associated with minimal scarring. The surgery for male breast reduction most commonly involves liposuction (ultrasonic assisted liposuction) either with or without direct excision of residual breast tissue. For those whose breast enlargements consist solely of focal breast tissue deep and adjacent to the areola, only direct excision would be needed.

Aside for certain restrictions, there usually is little down time. Immediate improvement in appearance is apparent and this will further improve with time.

And most importantly, the impact of the results from male breast reduction surgery on a man’s/boy’s self-esteem and masculinity can’t be understated – it is huge and overwhelmingly positive.

You may not have the pecs and chiseled look like I had when I was in my 20’s (see photo below) but you can surely feel better about yourself.

(Well … maybe this is not exactly a photo of me but the hair is somewhat similar in, er, color (maybe?) and I do enjoy going to the beach occassionally!)
