Some men may have enlarged breasts on one or both sides (Gynaecomastia) which they find embarrassing, and may therefore be seeking a more masculine and firmer chest. Certain factors such as age, and more rarely certain medicines, some diseases and some very rare congenital abnormalities may be a cause of the presence of excess tissue to the breast. Most teenage boys experience a degree of breast enlargement due to hormonal changes during puberty. By early adulthood less than 10% have a remaining problem, however 1 in 3 older men may suffer with this condition. In most cases there is no known cause for pronounced male breasts (Moobs) and even though the subject is not openly talked about, it is a common condition. For men who feel self-conscious about their appearance and who may have lost weight but still have saggy skin to the breast area (man boobs), male breast-reduction surgery can be an effective procedure to enhance and restore confidence.
The male breast reduction operation
Liverpool Cosmetic Clinic offers the male breast reduction procedure, which is performed by removing the excess tissue, fat and skin from the breast area. The male breast comprises two main elements, glandular tissue (firm) and fatty tissue (soft). On an individual basis, this proportion is variable and there may be an excess of both where Gynaecomastia is present. Depending on the requirements of the patient, Liposuction (sucking out the fat) or surgical excision (to cut out tissue) may be required. The excision may be performed alone or in addition to liposuction. In the case of a larger reduction which involves the removal of a considerable amount of tissue and skin, there may be larger incisions which will result in more significant scarring.
Further benefits, risks and your expectations will be discussed and explained during your consultation with a fully registered Consultant Plastic Surgeon.
