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.
Gynaecomastia is a common condition that causes men’s breasts to become larger than normal. This can be influenced by hormonal imbalance, obesity, weight loss, intake of certain drugs and can affect one breast or both. This may also be combined with nipple enlargement. The breast tissue can also sometimes become tender and painful.
Gynaecomastia surgery aims to improve the shape and reduce your breast tissue and skin excess.
