Male Breast reduction often referred to as ‘gynaecomastia’, 'man boobs', or 'moobs' which can trivialise a major concern for those it affects.

What causes Gynaecomastia?

Gynaecomastia can be caused by an imbalance between the sex hormones, testosterone and oestrogen, the latter causing breast tissue to grow if it is elevated.

Being very overweight (obese) is a common cause of gynaecomastia as these patients are more likely to have excess fat that can enlarge the breast tissue. For some people losing weight may not always improve their condition.

As men get older, they produce less testosterone and have more body fat, and the combination of both of these factors often leads to this condition occurring.

Gynaecomastia surgery can be done under either local anaesthetic, conscious sedation or general anaesthetic, depending on the scale of surgery required and patient preference.

Typically, the procedure involves making a cut around the nipple and removing excess fatty tissue or using liposuction, a combination of both techniques is commonly used to achieve the best result. If a significant amount of tissue is removed, then the nipple will be re-grafted to a new position on the chest.

The operation takes about 1.5 hours in the theatre and you can go home the same day.

If you are looking for a Male Breast Reduction, La Belle Forme is able to offer a comprehensive service tailored to meet your individual requirements – commencing with your initial consultation.

At your consultation, we will discuss your current health, medical history, and the overall look you want to achieve. Patients will also have the opportunity to ask their surgeon as many questions as they like such as what’s involved in a male breast reduction procedure and recovery times.

We offer patients consultations from our Glasgow clinic.

Recovery time for a breast reduction generally takes around six weeks until scars fully heal. We recommend that patients avoid any heavy lifting for around six weeks following surgery. Patients should build up activity slowly and only undertake gentle activity after two weeks have passed. You should, however, be back to your normal activities after around six weeks.
