Gynaecomastia (sometimes referred to as “man boobs”) is a common condition that causes men’s breasts tissue to swell and become larger than normal. It is caused by an imbalance of the estrogen and testosterone hormones, obesity, old age or puberty or it can occur naturally without any specific reason. Gynecomastia can affect one or both breasts, sometimes unevenly.
Gynaecomastia can cause men to feel discomfort, self-conscious, and the breast reduction treatment is proven to be an excellent way to regain that confidence and have your desired chest.
Signs vary from a small amount of extra tissue around the nipples to more prominent breasts.
Due to Gynaecomastia, men experience excess tissue growth in the breasts that influences their appearance and overall self-confidence.
For most young men, the condition can regress naturally over a few years as they grow out of puberty. However, there are many cases where it does not regress, and the enlarged breasts remain during adulthood.
In older men, changes in their bodies lead to less production of testosterone. In case of more body fat than the required, it is also possible for the body to begin producing more estrogen. This event will affect the size of the chest area and will result in grown and enlarged breasts.
Losing weight may help in some cases, but the breast tissue may not improve only through slimming.

It is important to note that prior to the breast reduction procedure, you may be asked to make a few lifestyle changes. These may include giving up smoking, eating healthier and exercising.
Breast reduction for men operation is performed under a general anesthetic.
The surgery for men is performed in a slightly different method from the Breast Reduction surgery for women. The operation’s goal is to avoid leaving visible scars, and often liposuction alone is adequate to create the desired results.
Your gynaecomastia surgeon will make a cut around the nipple and sometimes a vertical cut underneath. They will remove some of the breast tissue and skin. Sometimes liposuction is performed to remove excess fat.
If your breasts are large, the expert surgeon may also need to make a cut in the crease under the breast (infra-mammary fold). This will leave an anchor-shaped scar.
It may also be needed to completely detach your nipple and areola before replacing them at a higher position. Your surgeon will usually place small tubes (drains) in the cuts to help the wounds to heal. The cuts will be usually closed with dissolvable stitches, leaving the drains in place. Finally, your breasts will be wrapped in supporting bandages.
The operation lasts about 1 hour.
The recovery period will last approximately 3 weeks. After the operation, your breasts will look discolored and feel firm and swollen. You should be able to go home within a day, but you will not be able to drive immediately afterwards. The bandages can be removed after a few days.
For the first three weeks after the operation, you are advised to avoid heavy lifting or any other physically demanding occupation. Most men resume normal activities within 2-3 weeks. You can expect to see noticeable results after 6 months. However, signs of improvement are visible after the first month.
