Male breast correction (gynaecomastia)

Gynaecomastia commonly affects infants, teenagers and older men. Sometimes this is due to a hormonal imbalance. Male breast development can cause embarrassment and surgery to correct this often involves liposuction to reduce the volume but can include removal of firmer glandular breast tissue and occasionally skin. The duration of surgery depends on which combination of procedures is required. Often a drain is needed following the surgery and this would require an overnight hospital stay. Where liposuction only is used you do not need to stay in hospital.

A compression garment is worn on the chest after the surgery for comfort and to reduce swelling. Any wounds should heal in approximately 10 days and resumption of all normal activities by 2 weeks. Mr Cawrse can advise you on which procedure would be most appropriate at your consultation.
