Breast Reduction (Gynecomastia)
Gynecimastia is a health problem found in male adolescents or in adult men which occurs as enlarged male breast. This condition can result from a hormone imbalance or from being overweight, which can increase levels of oestrogen and cause breast tissue to grow.
As with any cosmetic procedure, it is important that you review your expectations thoroughly before you decide to proceed. Dr Joffily will explain the results you can expect after male breast reduction surgery, and will discuss the associated risks and alternatives to the procedure before going ahead.
Gynecomastia is a problem which can lead to male breast cancer, and/or psychological distress. If your gynecomastia consists primarily of excessive fatty tissue, the surgeon will likely use liposuction to remove the excess fat. A small incision, less than a half-inch in length, is made around the edge of the areola–the dark skin that surrounds the nipple. The operation takes about an hour under a general anaesthetic.
The surgery gives permanent firm sculpted and toned look in their upper torso, creating a healthier, slimmer profile that looks more masculine and muscular.
