Restore a masculine chest The Benefits of Gynecomastia Surgery

You no longer have to put up with avoiding tight shirts, beach days or intimate moments with a partner.

  • Restore your self-confidence and rid yourself of anxiety around having to engage in certain social activities or situations where your excessive chest tissue may become obvious
  • Wear tailored fit clothing with confidence. No longer will you have to wear baggy shirts, tape up obvious nipples or hide your body at the beach.
  • Sculpt a manly, masculine chest by removing problem glandular tissue and sculpting a chest free of soft, feminine breast tissue.
  • Reduce chafing and skin irritation from excessive skin that can rub together to cause rashes and painful chafing.

Most off all, permanently remove this anxiety from your mind in any situation. Never think about your man boobs ever again with our permanent gynecomastia surgery.

Understanding the Science How to get rid of man boobs

Small amounts of breast tissue in the male chest are normal.

Hormone imbalances, excessive oestrogen, low testosterone and weight gain can cause the male chest to tip in favour of becoming more feminine in appearance.

Man-boobs can consist of either glandular tissue or excessive fatty tissue.

  • Glandular tissue is best removed with surgical excision of the gland, performed under general anaesthetic, administered by a specialist anaesthetist, in an accredited private hospital. Failure to correctly remove this glandular tissue will likely result in over or under removal of gland tissue, leading to an irregular chest contour.
  • Fatty tissue can be removed with liposuction/liposculpture. This crafts a masculine appearing chest by permanently removing fatty tissue from the chest region.

Frequently Asked Questions

How is gynecomastia surgery performed?

Surgery for true gynecomastia is performed by surgically removing glandular breast tissue. This is performed through a tiny incision made at the lower border of the nipple.

Glandular breast tissue is then identified and carefully removed.

Occasionally, liposculpture of the chest is performed at the same time to define and masculinise the chest and address any component of pseudo-gynaecomastia .

How long does gynecomastia surgery last?

The procedure takes approximately an hour to an hour and a half and includes surgical removal of breast glandular tissue plus or minus liposculpture of the chest.

Will gynecomastia surgery cause scars?

Surgery for gynecomastia involves tiny incisions that are hidden in the junction between the areola/nipple and the skin. These incisions fade over time, leaving barely perceptible scars.

Contour Clinics are a specialist scar reduction clinic. Any scarring left after your surgery can be easily reduced without specialist laser technologies.

When can I see my results?

You should notice a flatter chest immediately after surgery. Results will become increasingly apparent as your swelling subsides over the next 3-6 months.

You may be able to see minor scarring around the nipple/and or at liposuction entry sites after your surgery. These will slowly fade overtime and can be helped along with our specialist scar reduction laser treatments.

How long will I be off work?

After your gynecomastia operation we recommend you taking 2-3 days off work. This may need to be longer depending on your occupation. This will be discussed at your consultation with our specialist plastic surgeons.

Can you get gynecomastia again after surgery?

This is very unlikely.

During surgery, our specialist plastic surgeons will remove any glandular breast tissue causing visible gynecomastia.

How long after gynecomastia surgery can I work out?

Advice regarding post gynecomastia surgery activity is designed around reducing your risk of swelling and fluid collections post operatively.

You should avoid strenuous activity that increases blood pressure for 2 weeks post operatively. At the two week mark you can gradually increase cardio and lower body activity. From 4-6 weeks onwards you can recommence chest workouts unless told otherwise by your surgeon.

You should also listen to your body after gynecomastia surgery and not push yourself overly hard.

How long should I wear my compression vest post gynecomastia surgery?

You should keep your compression garment on for 3 days after surgery. On day 4 you may remove it to shower.

Your compression vest should then be worn as much as possible for the first 4 weeks after surgery.

This prevents excessive fluid/seroma formation in the area of glandular breast tissue removal. It also helps to encourage skin retraction and provides support to the chest post operatively.

Do I need to massage after gynecomastia surgery?

Massage can be very effective at reducing scar tissue post operatively.

What are the risks of gynecomastia surgery?

The risks of gynecomastia surgery are uncommon in the hands of our experienced specialist plastic surgeons. One of our biggest concerns post operatively is seroma formation. This is a collection of fluid that forms to occupy the space formerly taken up by breast tissue. It is for this reason we advise wearing of a compression vest at all times for 3 days post operatively, followed by wearing as much as possible for the following 4 weeks. Adherence to this aftercare instruction makes seroma formation rare.

All surgical procedures carry risks. Your specialist plastic surgeon will explain the risks as they relate to you at your consultation.

How should you sleep after gynecomastia surgery?

After gynecomastia surgery we recommend you sleep on your back on at least two pillows for at least 48 hours. Keeping elevated and not lying on your chest helps to decrease swelling and the risk of seroma formation post operatively.

You should keep your compression vest on for 3 days at all times post operatively, then wear it as often as possible for 4 weeks post op.

How long do drains stay in after gynecomastia surgery?

Not every patient needs a drain after gynecomastia surgery. If you require a drain to prevent excessive fluid collecting in most cases it will be removed within 2-3 days post operatively.
