One of the fastest growing procedures within the field of cosmetic surgery, male breast reduction helps thousands of men regain a sense of confidence and self-worth. With forty to sixty per cent of men experiencing breast tissue enlargement as they get older, this common condition can occur due to a wide range of factors including hormonal changes and obesity. Because of this, a full examination and investigation are important first of all to rule out any underlying medical causes.
From the Greek term for a women’s breast, this medical term was used originally by a 2nd century AD doctor named Galen to describe excess breast tissue in men. Gynaecomastia is a common condition that nay be influenced by hormonal imbalance or obesity. It can affect one breast or both, and may effect nipple enlargement.
Cosmetic surgeons use a variety of different techniques for the correction of gynaecomastia, including liposuction, excision of the skin and breast tissue, or a combination of both. Choosing the right technique is very important and it is a decision which Elena will make with you following a long conversation and examination. The procedure requires a stay in hospital overnight, a few days off work to rest, and the avoidance of lifting or strenuous physical exercise for up to six weeks after the operation.
