According to the American Society of Plastic Surgery (ASPS), men now account for 40% of all breast reduction surgeries, and gynecomastia surgery is the third-most popular procedure for men to get.
Once known mostly as a surgery for women whose breasts were causing back problems or negatively affecting their self-image, breast reduction surgery has now become a way for men with enlarged breasts, or gynecomastia, to look and feel better about themselves.
