Gynaecomastia (Male Breast Reduction)

Gynaecomastia can also be known as a male breast reduction.

Gynaecomastia is an increase in the amount of the male breast tissue and may be present in one breast or in both breasts.  It can be caused by a variety of factors, including an imbalance of the hormones estrogen and testosterone. It is common in boys and men of any age. Weight gain and the use of non-prescription or recreational drugs, including anabolic steroids and marijuana can also be contributing factors.

You are a good candidate for gynaecomastia surgery if your weight is stable. Gynaecomastia can be corrected via Liposuction to remove excess fatty tissue or excising excess glandular tissue. In some cases, both excision and liposuction can be used.

Gynaecomastia surgery is performed at Lingard Private Hospital or Warners Bay Private Hospital. You will stay overnight in hospital.
