Your Male Breast Reduction in Birmingham

male breast reduction

Over-development of male breast tissue is a condition known as gynecomastia. It can be caused by a number of factors, including genetics, hormones, medication and weight gain. Although some men find their breasts will reduce in size following weight loss, this is not the case for all men especially if the problem is genetic or hormonal.

The impact of having prominent breast tissue in males can cause embarrassment and low self-esteem.

The good news is that male breast reduction surgery to treat your gynecomastia can offer really excellent results, giving the chest wall a much more masculine appearance.

Male breast reduction can be performed in a variety of ways depending on the amount of tissue that will be removed.

For small amounts of fat, liposuction is performed on the chest via small incisions at the crease and side of the breasts.

Moderate amounts of tissue can be removed via a pari-areolar incision where a small crescent of tissue is removed.

For large amounts of breast tissue, an anchor incision is needed. This incision type cuts along the bottom of the breast, up to the nipple and around.

Depending on the technique your surgeon uses and the type of work you do, you may need anywhere from 5 days to two weeks away from work to heal.

We know taking the first steps towards male breast reduction can be quite daunting, and that’s why here at Medbelle we’ll be with you every step of the way, from your first consultation right through to the aftercare we provide.
