The number of men who are using plastic surgery to enhance their appearance is increasing, but many men still have misconceptions about cosmetic improvement procedures. Men who educate themselves about cosmetic surgery may find that they could achieve higher confidence and self-esteem from a facelift, liposuction or male breast reduction procedure.
For the right candidates, male breast reduction is an extremely rewarding procedure, with many physical and psychological benefits. Patients usually experience some of these benefits very quickly after surgery. In this post, Newport Beach plastic surgeon Dr. Rob Kessler highlights some of the most notable benefits that male breast reduction candidates can look forward to.
It is estimated that as many as four out of 10 men develop a condition called gynecomastia, which causes overdeveloped breasts. If you or your spouse is one of them, you understand the shame and embarrassment that can accompany excessively large male breasts.

Business Insider reports that the number of plastic surgeries performed on men increased 106% from 1997 to 2012. In fact, the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery reported that last year men chose to have more than one million cosmetic procedures done, just under 10% of procedures done overall.
