Gynaecomastia is enlargement of the male breast tissue and a common condition for many men and boys. It is a fairly common procedure as the condition affects approx 80% of men and there is no known cause in the majority of cases.
In general this is a very successful procedure for men who feel self-conscious about their appearance resulting in a chest that is flatter, firmer and better contoured. During the consultation, your surgeon will determine if liposuction or gland removal alone will suffice or if you will have to have both surgeries performed simultaneously to give the optimum result.
The procedure removes fat and or glandular tissue from the breasts either by liposuction or direct excision through an incision below the nipple areola. The procedure usually takes between 1-1.5 hours preformed as a day case to allow the patients go home that evening.
