Today, men of all ages and all walks of life are requesting plastic surgery for cosmetic reasons. As of 2012, 9 percent of all cosmetic procedures are for men and male breast reduction is up 5 percent from 2011. Men’s goals include a more balanced nose, a rejuvenated face, a trimmer waistline—resulting in men having liposuction and body contouring procedures, including male breast reconstruction.
Breast reduction for men is the surgical correction of over-developed or enlarged breasts also known as gynecomastia. It is common in men of any age. It can be the result of hormonal changes, heredity, disease or the use of certain drugs. Gynecomastia can be easily addressed by a Board-Certified plastic surgeon like Dr. Aviles.
