Many men find themselves feeling self-conscious about the size or shape of their chest. If you are worried about the appearance of your chest, reduction surgery can go a long way towards restoring body confidence.

Gynaecomastia can be caused by any one of a number of issues, but chest reduction surgery can help men feel more confident and happy with their bodies.

Why might you need chest reduction surgery?

Chest reduction surgery may be required to reduce the visible effects of prominent breast tissue in men. It can help to boost confidence and can be a highly rewarding procedure.

What are the benefits of chest reduction surgery?

Overdeveloped breast tissue in men can be caused by a change in weight or the growth of excess underlying breast tissue. Some of the benefits of chest reduction surgery include:

  • Boosting confidence
  • Being happier with the shape of your body
  • Feeling more masculine

What does chest reduction surgery involve?

During gynaecomastia surgery, an incision will be made under your arm or around your nipple. This will allow for excess skin and tissue to be removed from the area. In some cases, liposuction will also be performed to remove additional fat from the chest.

Chest reduction surgery is carried out under general anaesthetic. The procedure usually takes approximately 90 minutes.

Specific complications from chest reduction surgery include:

  • Unevenness in chest size or shape
  • Excess scarring
  • Loss of nipple sensation

Recovery Time

You will need to stay in the hospital overnight following the procedure, and a week off work is recommended. Strenuous exercise should be avoided for two to three weeks, and initial scarring should fade over time.
