What is male chest reduction surgery?

Male chest reduction surgery is pretty much exactly what it says on the tin, it’s a surgical procedure to remove additional tissue from the chest and is a treatment for what is known as “gynaecomastia”. Gynaecomastia is the medical terminology used to describe what is more commonly referred to as “man boobs” or male breasts. It’s actually an incredibly common condition that causes the breast tissue in men to grow and become more prominent, varying from a small amount of extra tissue around the nipples through to a more prominent breast area that can affect one or both breasts. This can be caused by a number of things, including weight loss, hormone imbalances or the natural processes of ageing, although all of these can have a knock-on effect to your confidence.

Thankfully, male chest reduction surgery is something that can help you to get rid of an enlarged breast area. The surgery is specifically designed to remove the excess fat and skin from the chest in order to help you to achieve a more natural proportion to your body. In extreme cases, it’s also possible that the nipple and areola may need to be re-positioned slightly to ensure that the chest still has a natural appearance.

When considering chest reduction surgery as a form of treatment for gynaecomastia, it is incredibly important that you understand the cause of your problems before booking in for the surgery as some form of hormonal imbalance could cause the issue to resurface in the future. In addition to the surgery, there are also medications that can be prescribed to stop the gynaecomastia returning down the line.

What should you expect with chest reduction surgery?

Deciding that you want to have a chest reduction surgery carried out is a big decision, but it’s one that can come much easier than a lot of other surgical decisions due to the way in which it can affect your confidence and self-esteem. Doing all of your research is vital, but even after this you can still be sat with a number of questions on what to expect about the surgery, the recovery period and aftercare procedures. Some of the more commonly asked queries are answered below, but if you’re still stuck then we are happy to answer any questions that you have!

The price for chest reduction surgery varies depending on the individual needs of the patient, but our pricing starts at just £2995.

It’s normal to feel some pain and discomfort in your chest following the surgery and our surgeons will advise you on how to manage the discomfort when you return home. If you have any concerns or queries, our team are on hand to answer your questions.

Chest reduction surgery is carried out under general anaesthetic and usually takes between two to three hours depending on the severity of the gynaecomastia.

Chest reduction surgery can be performed on any man who is suffering from gynaecomastia or an enlarged breast area. We do advise consulting with a GP before booking your consultation in an attempt to determine the cause of the gynaecomastia.

A chest reduction surgery, as with any other form of surgery, carries a certain degree of risk with it, however it is a safe treatment to undertake. The risks associated with a chest reduction surgery include infection, bleeding and scarring, although your surgeon will take every precaution to minimise scarring and the risk of infection is heavily reduced if you follow the correct aftercare procedures.

We advise taking at least one full week off work following your surgery, however it all comes down to the type of industry that you work in as some industries are much less intensive and you will be able to return to work much sooner.

There will be an instant visible improvement following your surgery, but it can take up to 6 months following your surgery before you see the best results.
