Men may not be as open about their bodies as women, but it’s no secret that guys can have their own set of insecurities about physical appearance. That’s why doctors have seen an increase in the number of men seeking plastic surgery to treat their body. One of the most common complaints among men when it comes to body image is the dreaded man boob, or medically known as gynecomastia.
In recent years there have been many reports in the media about the number of men wanting breast reduction surgery to improve their looks.  As men age, it typically becomes more difficult for them to maintain a svelte physique, even if they continue to diet and exercise. Many men develop fat around their chest, which results in the appearance of male breasts, medically known as gynecomastia.
According to a study by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, which released its 2012 statistical report today, anywhere from 40 to 60 percent of men suffer from this issue. Plastic surgeons across the country performed 286,000 breast augmentations in 2012, making it the most often performed cosmetic surgery for the year.  Male breast reduction surgery was one of the top five plastic surgery procedures.
