Gynecomastia

Male Breast Reduction Surgery

 

What is Gynecomastia?

Gynecomastia is a condition of overdevelopment or enlargement of the male breast tissue, affecting up to 65% of men worldwide.

What causes it?

Gynecomastia is an imbalance in the levels of the female hormone (oestrogen) and the male hormone (testosterone) which causes an increase of breast gland tissue in men and can affect either one or both male breasts.

How do you treat it?

If Gynecomastia is bothering you then surgery may be an option to remove excess breast fat and glandular tissue. We perform this procedure under local anaesthetic meaning there is minimal recovery downtime.

Am I a candidate for treatment?

Male breast reduction surgery is suited for any male who feels uncomfortable or embarrassed by their enlarged breasts. The procedure can be performed on men of all ages who are in good physical and emotional health.
