Talking to him about breast augmentation – for himself

Have you heard about the guy who made a bet for $100,000 to keep a set of 38C breast implants for a year? Unfortunately some men face this reality for the rest of their lives – without the money.

Man boobs, also commonly known as moobs, are a sensitive topic for most men. They often shy away from the issue, so if you have a loved one who wants to get rid of his moobs, speak to him about breast augmentation surgery for men.

The breast reduction procedure

There is no need to go overseas to get this procedure done. His breast augmentation in Johannesburg hospital will keep him close enough and in touch with loved ones. The procedure is carried out under general anaesthetic and takes about 90 minutes or longer. The surgeon will make an incision around the nipple and liposuction is used to suck out excess fatty tissue. If there is an excessive amount of tissue to remove, the incision cut may be extended down to the chest and in this case the nipples may need to be repositioned.

After the breast reduction surgery

The patient will be required to stay in hospital overnight and also take a few days off work for the body to heal.  He should avoid lifting heavy objects or strenuous physical activities for up to six weeks after the operation. To ensure good results, the surgeon will also recommend he wear an elastic garment, 24/7 after the procedure is complete.

The end results after surgery are usually permanent, but unfortunately weight gain, hormonal imbalances and the use of certain drugs can cause the breast area to enlarge again. He should then maintain a healthy lifestyle to prevent the moobs from coming back.

How to approach him with this topic

Unless he chooses to wear man bras, there is pretty much nothing you can do. Speak to him about the surgical procedure that could most likely change the way he sees himself and also build a higher self-esteem. Men are sensitive creatures and almost anything can bruise their ego that’s why it’s imperative that you don’t joke about the issue. They were probably teased about their moobs in the past and the last thing you should is to be insensitive. Remember that boobs are associated with females and when its association diverts onto manhood, it can quiver up their masculinity. Be a good sport and support him.
