Gynaecomastia or male breast reduction

Breast / Male

Enlargement of breast tissue in men is termed gynaecomastia or ‘man boobs’.

There are several causes for gynaecomastia and it can occur physiologically during certain stages in life. Gynaecomastia can be caused by hormonal imbalances associated with several medications, steroid use, illnesses but most often no cause is found at all. When this breast tissue persists it can become a cause of significant embarrassment and worry for men.

Additional Information

Dr. V. usually combines surgical excision with liposuction of the chest wall but the exact technique used is decided upon on a case by case basis. Through surgery the chest wall is reshaped and a strong, streamlined and fit look is restored. This benefits a man’s social well-being and confidence.

Dr. V will tell you all about certain risks and complications involved with this procedure. This procedure starts with a thorough consultation and proper assessment of your chest wall and general history.


Procedure performed under general anaesthesia at the London Welbeck Hospital.
