About Male Breast Reduction

Male breast reduction surgery is more prevalent and increasingly popular and addresses the issue of enlarged breast tissue, known as gynecomastia, by removing the excess tissue. This procedure can greatly enhance the appearance of the chest and boost self-esteem by removing the excess breast tissue, fat, and loose skin that cause the appearance of ‘man boobs.’

The procedure can be carried out under local or general anaesthetic and might be right for you if you have an enlarged chest or loose, sagging skin in the breast area.

At Leeds Private Hospital, we have a team of highly experienced and fully accredited consultant plastic surgeons, including a specialist in oncoplastic and aesthetic breast surgery. Our dedicated cosmetic surgery nursing team at Leeds Private Hospital will provide comprehensive care before, during, and after your procedure.

What is Gynecomastia?

Gynecomastia, or excess breast tissue in men, can arise for various reasons. It might develop after weight loss, leaving sagging skin on the chest, or occur as a natural part of aging. Sometimes, excess breast tissue forms during puberty and persists into adulthood.

  • a hormone imbalance which has triggered an abnormal growth in the glandular tissue beneath the breast
  • excessive alcohol consumption
  • obesity or after considerable weight loss
  • the natural ageing process, often associated with some weight gain
  • use of certain medications/drugs
  • the body’s inability to lose the excess breast tissue frequently developed during puberty

No matter the cause, if you’re self-conscious about your chest, male breast reduction can help flatten and firm the area, giving you a more masculine appearance and boosting your confidence.
