Male Breast reduction surgery (treatment of Gynaecomastia)

Enlargement of the male breast, also known as gynaecomastia, is a problem that affects over 40% of the male population. It is usually treated with liposuction and glandular excision. In some cases, skin reduction may be necessary.

Male breast reduction surgery typically takes between 1 / 2 hours to complete, but is very dependent upon the amount of fat and tissue to be removed. Patients will need to be under a local or general anaesthetic.


Male breast reduction surgery takes about 2 weeks recover time. During this time soreness of the chest will subside. Strenuous activity should be avoided for up to a month after the procedure. Wearing a compressive garment for 4 weeks is highly recommended to reduce swelling.
