Male Chest Reduction (Gynaecomastia)


Gynaecomastia (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 emotional problems 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 specialist team at Cosmedicare can help with surgical options that include liposuction, Gynecomastia and the re-contouring of the body. Our approach is to educate, inform and empower you to make a decision your comfortable with, and to support you throughout your complete surgical journey – from consult, to surgery, during aftercare and beyond. We have a range of procedure options with both Local Anaesthetic and Sedation/General Anaesthetic techniques available.


Our 3D Before and After technology is often used during consultation to demonstrate a visual image of how your chest would look after surgery – nipple correction can also be combined with our Gynaecomastia procedures to help you achieve a chest you are comfortable to display. 



During the procedure sedation or anaesthesia 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.
