Gynaecomastia Surgery

Gynaecomastia is a Greek derived word meaning โ€œfemale breastโ€. There are many causes of Gynaecomastia ranging from physiological, pharmacological or pathological. Most cases are idiopathic and are a psychological and aesthetic burden for the male patient.

Technique:

Gynaecomastia is graded according to the size of the breast gland and skin excess.

In some cases liposuction alone can reduce the size of the breasts. In most cases however, a combination of liposuction and skin/gland excision similar to a breast reduction is required to masculinise the chest wall.

The procedure will be illustrated in detail and you will be given a detailed instruction sheet on expected post-operative course and potential complications during your consultation with Dr Jack Zoumaras.

It is recommended that you are a stableย weight for at least 3-6 months to obtain the best possible results.

It is advised to stop smoking at least 6 weeks before and after surgery.
