Excision + Lipo


Gynecomastia is a clinical condition characterised by the benign enlargement of breast tissue in males. This condition can be emotionally distressing, leading to self-esteem issues and physically uncomfortable, causing skin irritation and chafing. A variety of factors such as hormonal imbalances, certain medications, and lifestyle choices like diet and lack of exercise, can contribute to the development of gynecomastia.

The surgical approach to treating this condition often involves a combination of excision and liposuction. These techniques aim to remove excess glandular tissue and fat, thereby restoring a more masculine chest contour and improving the patient’s quality of life.


The first step in addressing gynecomastia is a comprehensive consultation with a board-certified plastic surgeon who specialises in male breast reduction. During this meeting, the surgeon will conduct a thorough physical examination, which may include imaging studies like mammograms or ultrasounds, to determine the extent of the glandular tissue and fat deposits. This consultation serves as a platform for discussing your concerns, setting realistic expectations, and planning the surgical approach tailored to your unique needs.

The choice of anaesthesia is critical to the surgical plan and is tailored to your specific needs and medical history. Both local anaesthesia with sedation and general anaesthesia are options. A collaborative decision is made between you, the surgeon, and the anesthesiologist after a series of preoperative evaluations, including blood tests and cardiac assessments.

The surgery involves two main techniques—excision and liposuction. Excision is used to remove glandular tissue, while liposuction addresses excess fat. Incisions are strategically placed around the areola or within natural chest creases to minimise visible scarring. The incisions are closed with sutures once the excess tissue and fat are removed. Antibiotic ointments and sterile dressings are applied to minimise the risk of infection and aid in the healing process. The surgical team meticulously ensures that post-surgical marks are minimal and blend naturally with the skin.


Note: Final results may take time as swelling resolves, and tissues settle.
Actual return to activity times will be discussed and agreed with your Surgeon.



You may choose to undergo a Gynecomastia procedure for a number of reasons:

The surgery offers a more chiselled and masculine chest contour, enhancing your overall physique and making you feel more comfortable in various types of clothing.
The removal of excess tissue alleviates physical discomfort, such as skin irritation or chafing, particularly during physical activities like running or swimming.
The aesthetic and functional improvements often significantly boost self-esteem and confidence, positively affecting social and professional interactions. Many patients report feeling more at ease in social situations and more focused in their professional lives.

"Really informative Consultation. Mark and Steve are great. It was a really nice place and the staff were lovely!"


Gynecomastia involves the enlargement of glandular tissue, not just fat. It’s a result of an imbalance of hormones and not merely weight gain or obesity.
Gynecomastia surgery is typically performed under general anaesthesia, ensuring the patient is comfortable and pain-free throughout the procedure.
Avoid smoking, certain medications, and supplements that can increase bleeding. Ensure you have someone to drive you home post-surgery and assist you for the first few days.
Maintaining a stable weight, following a balanced diet, exercising regularly, and avoiding medications or substances known to cause gynecomastia can help sustain the results.
Hormonal imbalances, certain medications, weight gain, or the use of anabolic steroids can lead to a recurrence of gynecomastia after surgery.
