Gynecomastia Treatment & Male Breast Reduction
Gynecomastia commonly occurs in men during puberty, when excess levels of testosterone are present, or as a result of aging, weight gain/loss or illness. It can also develop as a result of steroid, drug and alcohol use. The condition results in excess tissue and fat developing in the male breast area and for many men can have an extremely negative impact on self-confidence and body image.
Luckily, treatment for breast reduction surgery in London is quick, effective and straightforward. Liposuction is a minimally invasive procedure and surgical incisions, if required, are small, subtle and kept to a minimum.
Recovery is swift and, for anyone who has lived for the condition for any period of time, the results can be life changing, allowing them to feel more comfortable in their own skin.

How Is Gynecomastia Surgery Performed?
Small ‘stab’ incisions are made in the skin around the pectoral area and a liposuction cannula is inserted. Usually there will be two to three stab incisions at the completion of the procedure.
Any thick glandular tissue will usually have to be removed surgically, as the liposuction technique will not remove this. An incision is made at the edge of the areola to make the scar as inconspicuous as possible.

You may feel slightly bloated for a few days. This is often due to slight constipation caused by medication. A gentle laxative (lactulose, movicol or senna) will help resolve this.
