Elena and her highly skilled team of aesthetic and plastic surgeons are very experienced in male breast reduction for patients affected by gynaecostomia. The clinic offers a straightforward surgical procedure that will remove excess tissue and skin, restoring the appearance of the chest.
The clinic is based in the Welbeck Hospital, conveniently located near Harley Street, London’s world-famous medical quarter. Elena Prousskaia is an award-winning aesthetic and plastic surgeon offering plastic surgery in London and at her clinics throughout the UK.
Men with gynecomastia have benign enlargement of the tissue in both or one breast. The breasts may also feel tender and there may be an increase in the size of the nipples. Several factors can lead to this abnormal tissue development.
Gynecomastia can be caused by a hormonal imbalance. This can occur due to hormonal changes during puberty or may be a result of the aging process. Men who have lost a great deal of weight often find that they still have the appearance of enlarged breasts due to excessive skin in the chest area. Certain medications can also result in the development of breast tissue in men.
Before any surgery is carried out, it will be necessary to undertake a full medical assessment to discover the reason for the appearance of the condition.
Why choose us for your surgery in London?
Elena Prousskaia is one of the foremost plastic surgeons in the UK. She has had an award-winning career, including a period as an NHS Consultant in Plastic and Reconstructive surgery. Elena has established several highly successful private clinics across the UK, including her plastic surgery clinic in London which is based in the private Welbeck Hospital, close to Harley Street.
Elena and her team offer male breast reduction as part of a range of aesthetic procedures combining surgical expertise with a commitment to patient care and satisfaction.
Gynecomastia surgery in London may involve the use of more than one technique to remove tissue and provide a more sculpted appearance to the chest area. Typically, the procedure combines liposuction to remove fat tissue with the surgical removal of excess breast tissue and skin. The incisions will be made in the nipple areola area to make them as inconspicuous as possible.
The most suitable technique for your problem and the positioning of the scars will be discussed in your pre-operative consultation with Miss Prousskaia. The procedure will last between one and two hours under general anaesthetic. When you wake after surgery, you will be wearing a supportive garment to protect the chest area. You will need to stay in the hospital overnight.
How long will it take to recover?
Although gynecomastia reduction surgery is a safe and straightforward procedure, it is essential to give your body the time to heal by resting and avoiding too much activity for a few weeks afterwards. It would be helpful if you could arrange to take four weeks off work. Sports and any everyday activities likely to exert the chest area, such as hoovering or dog walking, should be avoided for four to six weeks after the procedure. More strenuous activity such as weightlifting is best avoided altogether for three months.
During the healing period, you will need to wear a supportive garment that will support the new contours of your chest and reduce swelling. You will be able to discuss resuming your everyday activities, including sports and gym workouts for your lower body, with Miss Prousskaia at your follow-up appointment.
What is the cost of surgery ?
The cost of an initial consultation starts at £200. The total cost of the procedure, including hospital stay, and aftercare starts at £6380. Prices will vary according to your specific requirements. The final cost of your surgery will only be confirmed after your initial consultation.

Elena was recommended to me and as soon as I met her I felt entirely comfortable. Her explanations made sense in terms of expectations. Having made the big decision I did feel nervous but had absolute trust and confidence in Elena. I knew I was in the best hands. Elena's team is so supportive, my questions were answered with patience and understanding. My care at the McIndoe Centre was excellent. I am five weeks post op for abdominoplasty and liposuction and last week. Quite amazing to see the before and after pictures! I am so pleased that I was fortunate enough to meet Elena and have no hesitation in recommending her.

I have been both physically and mentally uncomfortable in my body since I was 12. I was born with ‘breast mutation’ and I first had surgery to correct this through the NHS at 16 years old. The surgery I have had with Elena, 17 years later, has removed the NHS implants, one of which had ruptured, and completely altered the shape of my chest. By doing this she has made me look and feel like a woman for the first time in my life. She is at all times quietly kind and fiercely adept. A true artist. She has surrounded herself with the most wonderful team and I cannot thank them all enough for the new lease of life that I have been given.

I have been self conscious for the whole of my adult life and I cannot express how much this surgery has changed things for me. Both mentally and physically. I highly recommend Elena. She supported me throughout my journey from start to finish. Elena is very particular which for me is really important. Elena really took care of me from initial consultation right through to surgery and aftercare.My scaring is minimal and I am absolutely over the moon with my results. Thank you Elena!

Elena is an OUTSTANDING surgeon. I had PIP implants and was looking to have them changed. I knew Elena was the surgeon to help, she put me at ease and explained my options. The lovely ladies in her office were helpful, I wanted to get sorted asap, when an alternative date was available contacted me straight away. I received outstanding care from start to finish from Elena, her team and the hospital. The aftercare is amazing, nothing is too much trouble, can call any time. I was so relaxed, I knew I was in great hands. The final results are fantastic. Elena has worked magic and I couldn’t be happier. I’m so glad I found her. I can’t thank her and her team enough.

Had surgery with Elena in September, I was extremely anxious about the whole thing, but Elena and her whole team, from admin to the hospital staff were amazing with me and reassured me throughout my journey. I can not recommend Elena enough, and she has changed my life for the better! Already saving for my next operation with her!
