Gynaecomastia

This is a condition of enlarged breasts in men that can occur at any age. Gynaecomastia surgery and liposuction treat this problem.

Usually Gynaecomastia contains both glandular tissue and fat. Occasionally, excess skin occurs.

Gynaecomastia can impair self-confidence. Because of this, some men avoid certain physical activities or intimacy simply to hide their condition.

What are the causes?

  • hormonal changes
  • obesity
  • certain drugs such as steroids
  • age
  • heredity

 Gynaecomastia Treatment

Gynaecomastia usually contains both glandular tissue and fat. Because of this, the treatment uses both surgery and liposuction. Occasionally surgery also removes excess skin. This procedure is performed in hospital under a general anaesthetic.

Liposuction alone can treat cases caused only by fat. This procedure is performed under twilight sedation at our practice facility.

Important information after your gynaecomastia procedure

  • You need to wear a compression garment for 3 weeks in order to reduce swelling.
  • You can return to work after a couple of days
  • Avoid strenuous exercise for three weeks after surgery

We will provide you with detailed instructions when you book in.
