Male breast reduction is professionally known as Gynaecomastia surgery which involves the removal and sculpting of the male breast tissue.
Gynaecomastia is a condition which can affect men of all different ages where the beast tissue over develops. This over development generally occurs just below the nipple, making the male breasts appear softer and less firm. Many men who are overweight also think that they are suffering from Gynaecomastia, however it is likely that they are merely overweight with excess weight all over the body. If you are overweight and think you have Gynaecomastia or medical ‘man boobs’ it is recommended that you get closer to your goal weight before any type of surgery is considered. This is important as if you do end up losing weight you may also require a body lift.
How can I get rid of ‘man boobs’?
If you do have the clinical condition of Gynaecomastia and wish to receive treatment for this we recommend visiting Dr Anh’s Perth cosmetic surgery. The procedure itself is normally combined with liposuction to remove fat as well as an excision of breast tissue (glandular tissue) that has formed. This will remove the tissue that is affecting the appearance of your ‘pecs’.
Your consultation will be private and understanding
Dr Anh is passionate about creating a comfortable environment for patients of all ages, genders and conditions. During your initial consultation (which will take up to 45 minutes) Dr Anh will discuss your condition with you and gain an understanding of how you feel about your condition, the results you want to achieve and your expectations. You will also be able to ask questions during this time and we encourage you to do so.
