Opt for a firmer, flatter & more masculine chest
Male Breast Reduction Surgery (Gynaecomastia)
Linia understands the appearance of ‘man boobs’ can really cause embarrassment and affect your confidence. We offer male breast reduction surgery which could help to give you a flatter, firmer and more masculine chest.
Gynaecomastia is a common condition in men and relates to large or over-sized breasts. Male breast surgery can remove excess fat and sagging skin from the chest to give a smoother, more masculine appearance.
Our surgeon will make a small incision at the edge of the areola. Excess skin and fat will be excised; in some cases liposuction is used. In either case scarring is minimal and barely noticeable. Results create a smoother masculine appearance.
Who is a Gynaecomastia procedure suitable for?
Gynaecomastia can be caused by many different factors including:-
- A hereditary condition
- Illness or drugs
- Weight gain or weight loss
Will my consultation be with a surgeon?
All consultations take place with a surgeon. We believe that only a surgeon can help and advise you on the best procedure to achieve the results you would like.
During your initial consultation, we will ask you about the results you are looking for and explain the procedure so that you understand every stage of the process. The most important thing is that you feel completely at ease in our care and fully aware of the procedure and the resulting enhancement.
Are your consultations free?
All of our consultations are free with no obligation. You will be provided with advice and information relevant to achieve the results you desire.
What will happen after the Gynaecomastia surgery?
Your surgeon will see you when you have recovered to check that all is well, and will discharge you providing you are fit to return home. You will be given medication and full post-operative instructions along with appropriate telephone numbers in case you need to contact us at any time. A special elasticated garment will have been applied to your chest wall after Gynaecomastia surgery and this must be left in place for the next 4 weeks. Some pinkish discharge may be experienced for 48 hours.
During the first week after surgery, you should not remove the garment at all. You should try to resume normal daily activities as soon as possible: general mobility will help speed up the healing process. You should NOT, however, undertake any strenuous activity or exercise. You will see the nurse after 7-10 days so that she can check your progress and remove your dressing and stitches. Bruising and swelling will continue to diminish.
Weeks 6 -10
By this stage you should be able to see good results but full results will take 6 months to appear. Bruising and swelling will have disappeared. You may find that there is still some irregularity or lumpiness in the chest wall, but this will settle down after a couple of months, aided by regular massage. You will see your surgeon once more at between 8 and 10 weeks after your operation for a full post-operative consultation.
