Gynecomastia (Male Breast Reduction)

Men can feel self-conscious when it comes to their physique for many reasons. Although it is not usually spoken of, it is common for men to suffer from the condition called Gynecomastia. This is when the male breast becomes enlarged.

Within a breast, there is glandular tissue and fatty tissue. Should the breast have an excess of either component, this would cause it to enlarge. Other factors are associated with male breast enlargement could include hormonal changes, disease, hereditary conditions, or the use of certain medications.

Our Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

How will my gynecomastia surgery be administered?

On the other hand, the excess glandular tissue would be cut away with a scalpel.

How long does gynecomastia surgery take?

Surgeries of this nature will be carried out in around 90 minutes.

Will there be any scarring?

With any procedure, you should consider scarring as a possibility. Typically, after gynecomastia surgery scarring will be around the nipple area. However, in some cases where major reduction surgery is required, this will result in more scarring.
