Gynaecomastia is an excess of breast tissue in males. Surgery for gynaecomastia can be combined with liposuction to the area. It is designed to reduce the size of the breast area which can cause embarrassment and lack of confidence. Our goal is to make your surgical experience as easy and as comfortable as possible.
During your consultation you will be asked to point out exactly what you would like to see improved. This will help your surgeon to understand your expectations and determine whether they can realistically be achieved.
Fortunately, significant complications from gynaecomastia are infrequent. Every year many men have excess breast tissue removed, experience no major problems and are delighted with the results. Anyone considering surgery, however, should be aware of both the benefits and the risks. Your surgeon will discuss these with you during your consultation.
Gynaecomastia is usually performed under a general anaesthetic by one of our highly experienced cosmetic surgeons.
Following gynaecomastia surgery it is important to follow the instructions given to you by your surgeon. As every patient recovers at different rates it is important to listen to your body. In most cases patients resume normal activities after 2 weeks.
The results of your gynaecomastia surgery may be dramatic or subtle depending how you looked before surgery. Patients feel better in clothes, especially polo T shirts and those previously embarrassed whilst on the beach, swimming pool or participating in sports activities often have renewed confidence.
It is also important to make time for post-operative consultations.
