Gynaecomastia Sydney

About the treatment

Gynaecomastia is a relatively common male condition also referred to as ‘man boobs’ or a male breast reduction. Gynaecomastia is where there is excessive development of breast tissue and in some cases, an accumulation of fat.

There are numerous causes, including:

  • Hormonal imbalances
  • Use of medications 
  • Recreational drugs 
  • Obesity

While gynecomastia is a benign condition, it can be the source of social misery and embarrassment for the sufferer and there’s certainly no shame in surgically treating it.

What to expect from Gynaecomastia Surgery

The treatment involves surgical removal of the breast and fatty tissue. In the majority of patients, the condition can be treated with ultrasound-assisted liposuction alone, which involves a short recovery period and minimal downtime.

Some patients will need a combination of liposuction and removal of the excess breast glands via a half-moon shape incision, which is well concealed around the areola (dark skin surrounding the nipple).

Procedure Overview:

  • Procedure time: 1 – 1.5 hours
  • Downtime required: 5 days (compression vest to be worn for four weeks)
  • Results duration: Long lasting*
  • Pair this treatment with: Liposculpture to the chest

*Individual results may vary.
