Gynecomastia is also known as man boobs and affects up to 1 and five of all men in the UK. The condition can have a genetic link and is caused by the development of excessive glandular tissue or fat accumulation in a man’s chest region. Although gynecomastia is not a sign of a serious underlying medical condition, it is a significant source of distress and embarrassment for many men, with a resultant loss of self-confidence. Affected men often find they are unable to take off their T-shirts whilst on holiday and may avoid certain activities such as swimming.

What is gynecomastia surgery?
Gynecomastia surgery, also known as male breast reduction surgery, is a surgical procedure that is done to reduce the size of overdeveloped or enlarged breasts in men. Gynecomastia can be caused by a variety of factors, such as hormonal imbalances, obesity, or the use of certain medications. The surgery typically involves the removal of excess glandular tissue and fat through liposuction or excision. The procedure is done under general anaesthesia, and recovery time can vary. It aims to restore a flatter, more masculine chest contour and improve self-esteem and confidence in men with gynecomastia.
