Introduction to Gynecomastia
Since the dawn of time, men have typically been considered to be strong, stoic, and steadfast. Whether it’s providing for their family or community, leading others either physically or intellectually, or sacrificing personal regard for themselves for the protection of others, the stereotype of a “man’s man” has been around for quite some time. While the social constructs of what makes a man has been slowly altered over centuries, there is one aspect that hasn’t changed too much, and that’s a man’s physical appearance.
Gynecomastia affects many men across the globe, presenting them as having “man boobs”, which can take a toll on the psyche, regardless if you’re a hunter or a gatherer. At Plastic Surgery Scottsdale, Dr. Alexander Golger strives to provide his male patients with the kinds of changes that lead to pride in their appearance through male breast reduction surgery.
