It is surprising to note that, of late, cases of male breast augmentation are on the rise. There are many possible reasons for this, with the simple ones being a better looking body, to the more complex ones, being complications that need to be dealt with and finally to have a toned and shaped body.
Of course, there are also some silly reasons like somebody taking up a bet or wager that they could go in for a male breast augmentation or mail breast implants, but we will not cover that aspect in this article.
In the case of male breast augmentation, it is noticeable that males generally recover faster from breast augmentation than females. Due to this, there are very few complications noted in the case of male breast augmentation. However, this should not lead to the belief that male breast augmentation is an easy process. Equal care needs to be taken in this case as in the case of female breast augmentation.
Male breast augmentation – physical and emotional factors
One should also note that in any surgery for breast enlargement, the cosmetic surgeon needs to understand not only the physical factors but also emotional and psychological factors. If it is a case of the male changing the gender, then the psychological and emotional factors take significant prominence over the physical factors. Also, since this is not an easy process there is a lot of money involved – if the results are not up to the mark, then there is also an negative emotion attached to the whole process.
The whole cosmetic surgery procedure is not very different from that of a female cosmetic surgery procedure. In the case of male breast augmentation the implants are placed on top of the existing muscular structure. In most cases of male breast augmentation, it happens to be a sub muscular placement.
However, there are also nonsurgical methods for male breast augmentation. This includes methods like opting for special diet, the usage of different types of creams or going in for heavy muscular exercises that may lead to enhancement of the breast area.
Further, in today’s world there is a lot of demand to have a muscular physique. Howoever, there are many people who are not able to get this through normal exercisers or do not have time for exercisers to build muscles. In such cases they opt for male breast augmentation through surgical means. Take the case of a person who has a lean body configuration. In this case, however much the person exercises and however much he may add nutrients to his diet, this may not result in enhancing his body structure and muscles, especially the chest area. In such cases male breast augmentation procedures have to be done in the chest area.
With the advancement in technology, and the need to look toned and have a beautiful body not being confined to just the realms of females, males breast augmentation procedures and similar cosmetic surgery procedures are only going to increase in the future. Cosmetic surgeons are now pretty open to consulting for cosmetic surgery procedures for males, like male breast augmentation procedures and are more open than they were say about 15 to 20 years ago – this trend is expected to will evolve further.
