What happens during Male Breast Reduction surgery?

Plastic surgery to correct “man boobs” is technically called reduction mammoplasty and reduces breast size, flattening and enhancing the shape of the chest. The procedures involves liposuction to remove excess fat and, depending on your requirements, any excess skin may also be removed.

How is the procedure carried out?

The procedure is normally carried out under General Anaesthetic and you will stay overnight before you return home.

Will there be scars?

The surgeon will seek to conceal any incision lines within natural contours, although some scarring may be visible and all scars are permanent. Scarring can take around a year to fade from red to white. However, the improvement in your profile “beneath clothes” will be practically immediate.

According to the latest figures from industry body BAAPS, in 2010 the male breast reduction was the second most popular procedure for men, with procedures up a massive 28% vs the previous year.

The appearance of “man boobs”, known as “gynaecomastia”, relates to large or over-sized breasts in men. It can be hugely embarrassing and cause real confidence issues amongst men.

An over-sized male chest area may be a result of a combination of factors, which may
include:
• Genetics – a hereditary condition
• Illness or drugs
• Weight gain or weight loss

Due to coverage in the press and on TV, the condition and the surgical procedure to correct it have become much more widely recognised.

Cosmetic surgery to correct over-large male breasts involves liposculpture to remove excess fat and (as required) removal of excess skin to create a smooth, sleek and manly profile.
Most patients are required to stay in hospital for one night before returning home. After surgery you will be required to wear post-operative garments, which will aid the final result. There will be some scarring, but these will fade over time.
