How do you define gynecomastia? It is also commonly referred to as ‘man boobs’ and is a condition that occurs when the breast tissue in men becomes enlarged. This condition can cause physical and emotional discomfort for those who suffer from it, making them feel embarrassed and uncomfortable when wearing certain clothing or going shirtless.

This condition predominantly affects older men and teenagers, yet it is not exclusive to those age groups. Generally speaking, the disorder does not cause distress; however, in some cases, it may result in discomfort, while the size can range from a small amount of tissue to more obvious protrusions.

Men may experience gynecomastia (also spelt as gynaecomastia) for various reasons, such as hormone imbalances, the natural ageing process, being overweight and taking certain medications.

If your body is imbalanced in its sex hormones, you could experience the unfortunate phenomenon of having “man boobs”. An excess of oestrogen can cause tissue to develop within the chest area. Without enough testosterone present to counteract even small levels of oestrogen that are normal for males, it can become a problem.

Being significantly overweight can be a leading cause of gynecomastia. That occurs due to excessive oestrogen, which stimulates the growth of additional tissue in the chest area, also known as chest fat.

Male breasts, which may be caused by hormone imbalances or obesity, can become quite large. While weight loss is known to lessen this condition in some cases, it isn’t guaranteed to resolve gynecomastia entirely. Continue reading to find out how to get rid of gyno!


At the London Private Hospital, our team of experts are committed to providing you with successful gynecomastia surgery. The procedure involves removing the excess tissue from your chest area and contouring the remainder for a more masculine look. Depending upon the individual’s condition, liposuction for gynecomastia may also be used to further reduce your chest size. The process will be something as follows:

A general anaesthetic will be used during the procedure if you’re a man looking to undergo male breast reduction surgery. That means you’ll be in a deep sleep. However, fortunately, you can go back home the very same day!

Through an incision around the nipple, liposuction is used to extract excess fat cells and tissue from the area to achieve desired surgical results. In cases involving a significant amount of fat to be removed, it may be necessary to adjust the nipple location in one or both breasts. For those with predominantly glandular breast tissue, Webster’s Procedure may be necessary to remove the affected area in combination with liposuction directly. This procedure is performed through a discreet incision around the edge of the areola, allowing for an aesthetically pleasing outcome.

Typically, this procedure takes a little over 90 minutes, and unless any complication arises, the patient can go back home on the very same day.


Men in London and the UK recognise gynecomastia’s psychological and physical implications,leading to a significant rise in surgical treatments. Gynecomastia surgery can help you feel more confident about your body by reducing the size of your chest and giving you a smoother and more masculine contour to your chest.

On the other hand, having excess breast tissue can make you feel inadequate, cause difficulty buying new clothes, and create awkwardness when undressing in public places or during intimate moments. It might even lead to a lack of confidence and self-esteem.

This procedure has been proven effective in providing long-term results and offering patients a safe and comfortable recovery process.

If you are overweight and struggling with man boobs, it is wise to prioritise a healthy lifestyle that includes regular exercise and nutritious meals. Not only could this lead to reducing the size of your breasts, but it will also ensure excellent long-term health.

Consulting with an expert in the field can help you pinpoint your specific issue and confirm whether it is gynecomastia or a surplus of fat. In addition, surgery to reduce the size of male breasts often proves beneficial for some men, relieving distress and pain.


Your recovery will depend on which type of gynecomastia procedure you have chosen and the tissue’s amount that needs to be removed. Generally, patients can return home the same day as their procedure. However, you should expect some swelling and discomfort for up to one week.

After a male patient undergoes breast reduction surgery, it is expected that he will need up to one month to fully recover. To ensure your body is given the best chance to heal without any hindrances, it’s recommended that you take a leave for a few days from work immediately following surgery.

Patients will be outfitted with a compression garment that must be worn day and night for two weeks following surgery to maximise the outcome of their procedure. Since this procedure requires incisions, dressings will be instantly provided and must be changed periodically depending on the healing rate of the cuts.

After the fat is extracted, wounds are closed with sutures that dissolve naturally. On the other hand, when non-dissolvable stitches have been used on the patient’s body, they must return to London Private Hospital for us to take out the stitches following surgery.

As your surgeon will emphasise, you must follow their advice concerning recovery. To reduce the risk of complications and maximise healing, patients should abstain from strenuous physical activity such as exercise, stretching and lifting heavy objects for up to two months post-treatment. Only stick to the gynecomastia exercise your surgeon tells you to do for better recovery!

If you’re an automobile driver, then you can get back on the road again as long as it’s not uncomfortable or painful to put your seatbelt on. If soreness is felt when wearing a belt, wait for a couple of weeks until the sensation lessens before driving again.

The advantages of undergoing gynecomastia surgery are numerous and include the following:

Restored Confidence And Self-Esteem

Having an attractive physique is essential for boosting self-confidence. Gynecomastia surgery can help patients achieve their desired aesthetic outcome by providing a sculpted chest area that looks natural.

Reduced Physical Discomfort Or Pain

For men with large breasts, physical discomfort is common. That can result from having to bind their chest or shoulder pain due to the additional weight from the breasts. Gynecomastia surgery can help reduce this physical discomfort by removing excess fat and tissue.

A Reduction In The Risk Of Health Complications

Large male breasts can lead to other health complications, including back pain and shoulder grooving. Gynecomastia surgery helps with male breast reduction and can help reduce these risks by removing the excess fat and tissue from the chest area.

Fit Into Clothes More Comfortably

Finding clothing that fits properly for men with large breasts can be difficult due to their chest size. By undergoing gynecomastia surgery – a form of male breast reduction, the size of their breasts can be reduced to a more manageable level, making it easier to find clothes that fit comfortably.

Improved Physical Strength And Stamina

Excess fat in the chest area can lead to decreased physical performance due to the additional weight. Gynecomastia surgery can help reduce this weight, leading to an increase in physical strength and stamina.

A Tailored Solution – Unique To Each Individual’s Needs

Gynecomastia surgery can be tailored to the patient’s specific needs, allowing them to achieve their desired aesthetic outcome with minimal risk of complications.
