Male Breast Surgery

Commonly known as man boobs or more correctly Gynaecomastia, male breast development is fairly common. However, men are typically reluctant to seek advice about it due to embarrassment.

There is often no cause found for gyanaecomastia although it can be associated with obesity and certain drugs such as marijuana or steroids. Surgery is very effective and downtime is minimal. It usually involves a combination of liposuction and excision of the breast bud through an areolar incision (minimal access) under GA (day case).








PSF would like to thank Dr Timothy Cooper, specialist Plastic and Reconstructive surgeon for his input into this post.
