Male Breast Reduction (Gynaecomastia)

Breast reduction surgery is not only an option for women. Gynaecomastia is a condition in which the size of a male’s breast is larger than is considered normal. This condition is far more common than many realize. Some of the causes of gynaecomastia include hormonal imbalance, excessive alcohol intake, obesity and use of certain drugs. This said, often the cause of male breast enlargement is unknown.

Male breast reduction (gynaecomastia reduction) is done to flatten the breast area. It is done as a day procedure under general anaesthetic and usually takes about 1 hour. The surgical procedure involves reduction by excision of glandular and fatty tissue and may also involve liposuction depending upon the amount of fatty tissue present. After the procedure, you will notice a small incision line which is normally placed along the edge of the nipple.

What to Expect From a Male Breast Reduction

Results of this procedure are permanent, although subsequent obesity can create a gynaecomastia like effect.

Following surgery, you will be required to wear a post-operative surgical garment for at least 2 weeks. There is generally little downtime. Most men return to work within 1 week.
