Mr Alex Karidis was recently interviewed by Dazed Digital, one of the largest and longest-standing pop culture sites, for their regular feature ‘The Professionals’ where they talk to the people in the know about all things beauty-related.
As the UK’s leading gynaecomastia surgeon, Alex was invited to give the lowdown on the causes and treatment options for those suffering from male breasts, also known as ‘moobs’. Affecting upwards of 40% of the male population, from puberty onwards, it’s no wonder that many men are keen to find a solution to male breasts.
As Alex explains, “From a psychological point of view, it can affect your confidence and self-esteem considerably.
“It affects relationships, people’s ability to do things such as going swimming since it can make you feel self-conscious. When you are restricted in anything in life this can impact your psyche as well. It can be a very serious issue for many people.”
Alex goes onto debunk all the misconceptions and misinformation that surrounds gynaecomastia and explains what a male breast reduction procedure actually entails.
