Gynecomastia (Male Breast Reduction)


With the growing interest in cosmetic surgery, breast reduction surgery is no longer viewed as just for women; men  can benefit as well. In today’s society, many men are self-conscious about their chests. In some men, changes in hormones during puberty results in a swelling of breast tissue. Fluctuations in weight can also play a factor in the development of male breasts.


While it isn’t known to be a serious medical problem, it can cause a lot of emotional problem and embarrassment, with many men experiencing a lack of body  confidence and reluctance to partake in physical activities where they cannot hide their chest area.


Our team at Cosmedicare can help with surgical options that include liposuction, gynaecomastia and the re-contouring of the body.


How Is Male Breast Reduction Performed?

During the procedure sedation or anesthesia will be administered to ensure you are comfortable. As every body is different,  your surgery may consist of liposuction alone or in combination with an incision used to remove tissue and skin, this will be discussed with you fully during your consultation.  Pain is usually minimal and most of our patients return to their normal lifestyle and activities within two to three days. All of our procedures are conducted as day case treatments, removing the need for an overnight stay in hospital.


Male breast reduction surgery gives natural looking improvements that no one else will know about, unless you decide to tell him or her. However, we do ask that every patient is collected after surgery by a friend or relative.
