Gynaecomastia Sydney

About the treatment

Gynaecomastia is a benign condition 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

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 shorter recovery period and less 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)
