1000% Rise in Breast Reductions for Men


Men concerned about the size of their breasts are opting for breast reduction surgery in record numbers, delighting plastic surgeons.

A meeting of UK plastic surgeons was told that over the past 5 years breast reduction surgery for men has increased 1000%, with the operation now the fifth most popular cosmetic surgery for men.

Plastic surgeons are delighted by all the new business:

“We are seeing men of all ages coming in to have their breasts made smaller. They are losing their inhibitions about the operation and deciding to undergo an operation which previously was a women’s operation.”

In 2008 alone a thousand men underwent the procedure, which costs in the region of $1,700.

The other top operations are nosejobs, eyelifts, ear corrections and liposuction. The popularity of penis modifications is not mentioned.

The UK has one of the highest rates of obesity in the world, with 2003 UN estimates suggesting 23% of the population is obese, only beaten by Mexico with 24% and the US with some 31%.

For some reason the plastic surgeons fail to mention the utility of losing weight in reducing breast size…

    That's a kind of creepy excuse to get a day off of work. >>
    And for some reason, it's kind of hard to believe there's more obesity in Mexico than the UK.

    It's due to female hormones from birth control that can't be filtered out of the recycled waste water, so it ends up coming back out of the tap and men end up drinking them.

    That, and eating/drinking bisphenol-a leeched from plastic containers.

    And ofcourse (after bisphenol-a and birth control hormones) that we don't filter our water and eat meat (which got hormones in first place and makes us fat and ugly).

    If you wanna lose weight, I recommend what worked for me. It's called the "Move to Japan Diet."

    Before I left the US two months ago I weighed 220lbs. After 2 months living in Japan, living my daily life which involves a lot of walking, and eating whatever I want for my meals, I've lost 30 pounds. You have to really try to be fat here, not to mention pay a lot of money cuz you have to eat McDonalds or red meat like every day, and that shit gets expensive.

    There you have it :3

    You too? Awesome.

    I used to be 180lbs, and went down to 140-ish in a few months (exercise is almost guaranteed due to long walking distances and self-catering.

    Actually, man boobs =/= fat. It's about hormonal imbalance that leads to the glands growing bigger. This may be caused by the food you take in, but it's also possible that you just happen to have a hormonal imbalance (in whitch case it's likely genetic). It can happen especially during puperty. It's relatively common for a adolescent boys to have growth leading to teen-tits. For some this growth is only temporary, but for some the tits wont shrink even after reaching maturity.

    Having man boobs can be socially disabling. You may be lean but still have your tits sticking out off your shirt.

    True, if it's breast tissue you can diet all you want - it won't go away. However many doctors combine the tissue removal with liposuction when the patient is obese since there is too much fat underneath too.

    Also if you look around in bodybuilder forums you will regularly find threads about gynecomastia surgery (+tips to hide the fact that you used roids from your doctor to get surgery approval).

    Well I can assure you those males didn't have any muscles on their chests or stomachs like a body builder has or someone who is just healthy. The probably did have real 'fat tissue' breasts.

    The UK has a high obesity rate ? I never knew that, they always make fun of Americans for being fat. I guess they're hypocrites. Next time they say something like that I'm gonna be like ,, Well actually, You see ..... '' lol

    So, uh, what do they do with the moobs once they've been removed? Is there a bucket or something? God damn, that's an unpleasant thought.

    23%? no way lol

    Unless their definition of "overweight" and "obese" are far off the scales than I imagine, this value is too damn low from what I see on streets.

    Gawd, i rather agree to transexuals paying surgeons for a boobjob than men who request man-breast removal just because they can't stop taking junkfood as daily meals and do some push ups..

    If these guys were 2D, i 100% bet you guys are gonna fap on it, and seriously speaking i am so perplexed about how you guys think. I mean what's the fucking big, significant difference between 2D and 3D when the case is the same? if its 2D, you'd love to fap w/ it, if it's reality check, you puke on it. You guys amazed me to no limits.

    wut? no seriously wth are you talking about? I dare you to point one article on sancom that has fat 2d male galleries and galore comments that praises them.

    If you can't, then go ahead and try to convince yourself and your best friend (your pinky toe) the opposite.

    If guys are like women (regarding weight-loss), the FIRST place excess weight comes off of is the breasts!

    True. Sometimes i don't even eat.
    We are not even bad looking actually. Loy's of us look just fine. It's just that 3D women seem so much trouble and on top of that we are really shy.

    Actually, when the same standards that Americans use are applied to Europe, Americans are not the fatest. They aren't even in the top 50% of "most obese Westerners". If you want to compare two things, you need to use the same system of meausurements and standards.

    But thanks for playing.

    I don't know about the UK and Mexico, but in the America, the food industry has structured itself to have cheap crappy food that is advertised to people constantly. Try watching TV in America without seeing some plastic burger and sexy music trying to get you to eat yourself into a coma. The big companies load their products with semi addictive ingredients and lots of calories in an attempt to make Americans fatter, and hooked on their products.

    Food industry reform should be a top issue as soon as the economy recovers. It would drastically lower the cost of health care, and would actually solve the main problem as opposed to the "fat tax".
