How to Deal with Male Body Issues

Body confidence. It’s a big issue. And one that’s exacerbated by the digitally tweaked and inevitably airbrushed images of pantheonic perfection we see in the media. Every TV show, every movie, every advert today is peopled entirely by unnaturally gorgeous people. The effects of this on the female psyche are well documented and oft-bemoaned. Yet, there is a sense of the tide turning, as society expands its parameters of what is considered to be female beauty. Perhaps one day this may lead us to a society where women are free to express themselves without body hang ups. Still, what about their male counterparts? Why do we never talk about mens’ body image? Are all men inherently body confident? Or are they merely encouraged to suppress their insecurities and “man up”?

How to Deal with Male Body Issues

Male body hang ups are rarely discussed but very much on the rise. And the less men feel like they can discuss their flagging confidence openly, the more likely it is that they’ll be exacerbated and encroach upon the mental health of men everywhere. With that in mind, let’s take a look at common body issues for men, and what they can do about them…

Issues with height

There are plenty of diminutive hunks out there, yet even the most handsome man can still feel inferior if he’s significantly below the 6 foot mark. From Bruno Mars and Scott Radcliffe to old favorites like Tom Cruise there are numerous famously hot guys who fall well short of this apparent benchmark of male attractiveness.

While some men may be tempted to wear lifts in their shoes these can be clumpy and make it hard to affect a graceful gait. Instead try a taller hairstyle, slim fit shirts and jackets, vertical stripes, wearing uniform colors, choosing a jacket that buttons above the navel and wearing pants with no break can all give an illusion of height more effectively than lifts.


The common issue of gynecomastia (often referred to as “man boobs”) results in a swollen chest and puffy nipples and can be a source of embarrassment for some men. The good news is that you don’t necessarily need to resort to surgery to address this issue. There are lots of non-surgical options like compression shirts and areola covers to ease self-consciousness and irritation no matter what you’re wearing.

Male Pattern Baldness

Some men wear their hair loss with pride, others find it a source of profound insecurity. Again, while surgery is an option (one that’s more affordable and readily available than ever) men who are thinning on top have a great range of other options.

Topical minoxidil can be applied to the scalp to reactivate dormant hair follicles while medications like finasteride have been known to curb hair loss and even aid regrowth. Still these can affect libido and erectile performance. Many men find that a sprinkling of keratin fibres can thicken out thinning hair and give it a little extra lift for a fuller, thicker and healthier appearance.

Every human being, whether male or female deserves to feel good about themselves. And only by addressing their hang ups can men find meaningful solutions that bring them confidence.
