Male Reduction (Gynecomastia)

As a man, you may be feeling self-conscious because of excess fat and/or glandular tissue on your chest wall. This condition is known as gynecomastia and can present in men of all ages due to a variety of reasons. A male breast reduction can be a very satisfying procedure, leaving you with a firmer, flatter, and more masculine looking chest.

Liposuction is done through discreet incisions placed in the breast crease or natural contours of the chest. A further incision to remove excess fat and glandular tissue is placed inconspicuously around the nipple and areola region.

This is usually a day-case procedure that is done under general anesthesia. Recovery is usually quick, and fitness and more strenuous activities can usually be resumed within 2-4 weeks.

Results can be long-term, but weight loss/gain or natural aging may alter your appearance.
