What is Male Breast Reduction (Gynaecomastia Surgery UK)?
Gynecomastia surgery UK or male breast/chest reductions affects 10-30% of male in the UK. Excess fat develops around the chest area which can cause embarrassment and affects confidence in teenagers and male adults.
Nu Cosmetic Clinic can refer you for three treatments to reduce excess fat in the chest area of a male, commonly called as “Moobs” which are traditional liposuction carried under general anaesthesia, while Vaser Liposuction and smartlipo are done under local anaesthesia. Each of these have their own advantages and disadvantages. The most popular method of treating Gynecomastia is Vaser Liposuction, frequently combined with liposuction on the abdomen and flank area.
Gynecomastia surgery UK is a common plastic surgery procedure performed in males. Gynaecomastia (often referred to as ‘man boobs’) is the enlargement of male breast tissue. The growth of breast tissue can be painful or tender. In most cases, both breasts get enlarged; in others, only one breast gets affected. It can happen to males of any age or weight.
Enlarged male breasts can be reduced by liposuction and/or by cutting out excess tissue. Gynecomastia surgery UK normally takes around two hours. Skin rarely needs to be removed. The scars are well hidden in the nipple and are not seen.

Are there any alternatives to this surgery?
Diet and exercise can go some way to decreasing the size of your chest, however, some people are predisposed to fat collection in the chest area, despite their best efforts to loose weight here. In this case, gynecomastia may be the solution.

Will I have altered sensation in the area?
Whenever skin is cut, nerves are also cut; this may result in altered sensation to the area, particularly at the incision site. All care will be taken to maintain sensation as much as possible.
What weight should I be for surgery?
You should be at a healthy weight for your height when you have surgery as this lowers risks related to anaesthetic. For the best aesthetic results, we recommend that you are at your ideal weight at the time of surgery as further weight loss or gain can change the results of your surgery.
When can I fly after the procedure?
You should check with your surgeon regarding safe timings of air travel following your surgery. Many airlines have their own protocols and you should inform your travel insurance company if you have had recent surgery.
