Breast reduction for men is the fastest-growing part of the cosmetic surgery industry in Britain for the second year in a row, the British Association of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons reports. The organization saw an 80% increase in surgery to reduce the size of "moobs," from 323 in 2008 to 581 last year.
"Many men are feeling the pressure from men's magazines that weren't even being published five or six years ago," says consultant plastic surgeon Rajiv Grover, a BAAPS official, the BBC reports.
"In addition, they are just realizing that they can get something done about it."
Grover also notes that men have alternatives to gynaenetastia, the official name for male breast reduction. "Quite a few cases are caused by obesity," he says. "And we often say to men to look at their lifestyles before thinking about the scalpel."
