Women with extremely large breasts suffer from back, neck, and chest pain because of how heavy their breasts are. To address the issue, they undergo breast reduction surgery. This removes the excess breast tissue and gets rid of the pain.
But did you know that it’s popular among men, too?
In the United States, 40% of breast reduction surgeries are performed on men. When losing weight doesn’t do the trick, some men get the procedure to create a more masculine physique.
The term “gynecomastia” came from the Greek words “gune,” which means woman, and “mastos,” meaning breast. Hence, gynecomastia literally means woman-like breasts — terms that exactly describe the medical condition derived from it.
Medically speaking, gynecomastia is the abnormal enlargement of one or both breasts in men. It is characterized by having excess breast fat and glandular tissue development among males.
Breast reduction knows no sex or gender. If you think this procedure’s right for you, go for it!
