It’s becoming more apparent that men of all shapes and sizes are not immune to increased breast tissue. The condition which can occur from birth, is called Gynecomastia, and is commonly referred to as “man boobs” or “moobs”.
This condition, most commonly caused by hormonal imbalance, can lead to feelings of extreme self-consciousness and affect your enjoyment of everyday life, such as activities like going to the beach. Our patients have also stated that being diagnosed with Gynecomastia has made them feel emasculated when it comes to the appearance of their own body.
At Sculpt in Sydney, we understand your body concerns and we will make sure you are happy with the results of your male breast reduction procedure
Real People, Real Results.
Below, we explain the gynecomastia condition briefly. However, if you would like to learn in depth, please click the heading just above. The common condition which leads to this abnormal growth in breast tissue is called Gynecomastia. Occurring from birth, or in puberty, the condition affects the gland tissue within the breast area due to a hormonal imbalance. As a result, the gland tissue becomes enlarged.
When this hormonal imbalance occurs, estrogen levels tend to increase, and when the amount of estrogen outweighs the amount of male testosterone hormone, the glands begin to grow. It’s at this stage where the condition develops into Gynaecomastia.
Fortunately, there are treatments available which can decrease the amount of excess breast tissue in just a couple of hours.
The reduction of man breasts can be achieved in one of two ways. Following a consultation and tissue analysis, your surgeon will select to either remove the excess tissue via liposuction or surgical incision.
At our Sydney clinic, we offer two surgery options for male breast reduction:
The procedure will be performed with local along with conscious sedation. You will be awake but your breast tissue will be numb and the sedation will make you feel very comfortable.
The majority of patients will feel no pain. There will be a small amount of swelling post-treatment, however the results will be visible almost immediately. The swelling will continually reduce and the final results should be seen around 3 to 6 months post treatment.
While both options for male breast reduction surgery are day surgeries, it’s recommended to refrain from exercise and any strenuous activity including lifting heavy objects for at least one week. Exhaustive physical exercise such as weight lifting that involves the chest should be minimised for at least 2 to 3 weeks. This may be longer – our doctor will advise you.
The cost will vary from patient to patient and will depend on how we need to approach your treatment. Generally, you are looking at around $4,500 to $6,500 for the treatment. We will confirm the cost during a consultation.
