Male breast reduction helps to improve the appearance of the chest

At the International Centre for Cosmetic Medicine, we provide a comprehensive range of surgical options, including male breast reduction surgery for those suffering from gynaecomastia, to ensure you are able to have the body you deserve. To treat gynaecomastia, Sydney men can opt for male breast reduction surgery, to improve the appearance of the chest.

The gynaecomastia procedure helps to effectively reduce the size of male breasts and goes a long way in improving the overall contour of the chest area. The procedure can relieve pain and discomfort, and enjoy minimal postoperative downtime

What can the treatment be used for?

When diet and exercise alone fail to get rid of excess fat in and around the chest area, it's a common sign that you may suffer from gynecomastia. Although hormone imbalance is often the most common cause, excess breast tissue in men can be caused by a variety of factors. These include:

  • genetics
  • disease
  • certain medications
  • obesity

When it comes to gynaecomastia surgery, Sydney men who suffer from swelling in the breast tissue and who have tried other treatments without success may benefit. If you are considering the procedure, we recommend that you are in overall good health, are a non-smoker, and at a healthy and stable weight.

If your gynecomastia is the result of prescription medication or other drugs, for example, steroids, you will need to be entirely free from these and maintain a stable weight range to ensure the results of your surgery are long-lasting.

What should I expect at the consultation?

If you are concerned about swelling in your breast tissue, we recommend that you come in for a personal consultation. A one-on-one consultation with your surgeon is the first step for any patient considering a procedure for gynecomastia. We will assess your physical and emotional health, discuss your aesthetic goals, and address any questions or concerns you may have.

How does the gynecomastia procedure work?

Before we perform the procedure, we will perform a physical examination in order to evaluate your breast tissue properly. In some cases, tests may be performed in order to confirm your diagnosis. Treatment for gynecomastia may include liposuction, in which breast fat is removed, and / or mastectomy, a surgery in which the breast gland tissue is removed.

Depending on the findings from the clinical examination and ultrasound assessment, your doctor will either recommend liposuction to remove fat tissue, an excision (or surgical removal) of glandular tissue, or a combination of both of these treatments.

In the case of liposuction, your surgeon will insert a narrow tube through tiny incisions in order to loosen and remove excess fat. The fat is suctioned out of the body.

If your surgeon decides that glandular breast tissue and skin needs to be removed from the breast area, excision techniques will be used. In some cases, the size of the areola will be decreased, and the nipple may be repositioned.
