What is Gynecomastia?
GYNECOMASTIA IS OFTEN THE RESULT OF HORMONAL IMBALANCE, AND
CAN BE CORRECTED THROUGH MALE BREAST REDUCTION SURGERY.
Men of all ages enquire about male breast reduction surgery. It is known to cause emotional discomfort and often leads to men refraining from physical activities or even developing intimacy in order to hide their condition.
The Crown Clinic operates a full-service cosmetic surgery clinic – ICCM, International Centre for Cosmetic Medicine – we offer a comprehensive suite of cosmetic treatment options to make sure you have the body and chest shape you desire. You can view all our cosmetic surgery options at ICCM
Through male breast reduction surgery, we are able to improve the shape and form of your chest, help reduce pain and discomfort, and do it all with minimal post-operative recovery time. Our gynecomastia surgery works to reduce the overall size of your male breasts and improve the contour and outline of your chest area.
What can the treatment
be used for?
Although hormone balance is often the most common cause, excess breast tissue in men can be caused by a variety of factors. These include:
- certain medications
Surgery is often a good option for men who suffer from swelling in the breast tissue and who have tried other treatments without success. If you are considering the procedure, we recommend that you are in overall good health, are a non-smoker and are at a healthy and stable weight.
If your gynecomastia is the result of prescription medication or other drugs, for example steroids, you will need to be fully free from these and maintain a stable weight range to ensure the results of your surgery are long-lasting.
How Does The Gynecomastia Procedure Work?
During your initial consultations, you will undergo a physical examination in order to evaluate your breast tissue properly, and assess whether you are a suitable candidate. In certain cases, we may need to perform additional tests to confirm the cause of the excess breast tissue. For example, it is common for patients to undergo an ultrasound assessment.
Male breast reduction treatment can also mean a number of different things. The main surgical options include liposuction, in which the fatty breast tissue is removed; or mastectomy, a surgery in which an excision is made, and the breast gland tissue is removed. It is also common for these surgical procedures to be done in combination with one another. Every patient is unique, and the choice of treatment will depend on the results of the initial consultation.
A referral for an ultrasound test will be issued and a second consultation may be needed pending the results of this examination.
For liposuction treatment, your doctor will insert a narrow tube through an incision, and the fat is suctioned out of the body. If you require both glandular breast tissue and excess skin need to be removed, excision techniques will be used.
What Should I Expect
At The Consultation?
Abnormal male breast size should be treated seriously. If you are concerned it may be gynecomastia, we recommend you come in for a consultation as soon as possible. At your first one-on-one consultation, we will assess the physical and emotional effects of excess breast tissue with you, as well as discuss your aesthetic goals and address any questions or concerns you may have. A referral for an ultrasound will be issued and a second consultation may be scheduled.
What Kind Of Results Can I Expect?
Most patients are able to see the results of their treatment immediately after the procedure, even more so once the swelling goes down. However, it may take up to six months to see the full effects of the procedure. Overall, you will have a flatter, firmer chest area. There may be a small amount of scarring, however, it will likely fade over time and your doctor will conceal them as much as possible by using the natural contours of the body.

is Right For You? Find Out Today.
How Long Does
Immediately after your surgery, any of the small incisions made during the procedure will be dressed, and you will need to wear a specialised surgical garment. This is used to minimise swelling and provide your body with support as it heals. You may also require a certain number of small tubes placed under the skin at first to drain any excess fluid or blood that persists in the area.
Your doctor will provide you with detailed instructions on how best to take care of your wounds, including medication instructions if you need them for pain relief. You will also be required to schedule a follow-up appointment to ensure your recovery process is on track.
While total recovery time can vary from patient to patient, in general, patients who’ve undergone liposuction male breast reduction surgery have a recovery time of only a few days, while excision surgery recovery can take up to two weeks.

Frequently Asked Questions
Surgery is often a good option for men who suffer from swelling in the breast tissue and who have tried other treatments without success. If you are considering the procedure, we recommend that you are in overall good health, that you are a non-smoker and that you are at a healthy and stable weight.
If you are concerned about swelling in your breast tissue, we recommend that you come in for a personal consultation. A one-on-one consultation with your doctor is the first step for any patient considering a procedure for gynecomastia. We will assess your physical and emotional health, discuss your aesthetic goals, and address any questions or concerns you may have.
Before we perform the procedure, we will perform a physical examination in order to properly evaluate your breast tissue. In some cases, tests may be performed in order to confirm your diagnosis.
Treatment for gynecomastia may include liposuction, in which breast fat is removed, or mastectomy, a surgery in which the breast gland tissue is removed. Depending on the findings from the clinical examination and ultrasound assessment, your doctor will either recommend liposuction to remove fat tissue, an excision (or surgical removal) of glandular tissue, or a combination of both of these treatments.
In the case of liposuction, your doctor will insert a narrow tube through tiny incisions in order to loosen and remove excess fat. The fat is suctioned out of the body. If your doctor decides that glandular breast tissue and skin needs to be removed from the breast area, excision techniques will be used. In some cases, the size of the areola will be decreased and the nipple may be repositioned.
Once your surgery is complete, your incisions will be dressed and you may be given a surgical garment to wear in order to minimise swelling and provide support as your body heals. Small tubes may be placed under the skin in order to drain excess fluid and blood from the body. Your doctor will explain how best to take care of your surgical wounds and you may be prescribed with medications to help relieve any pain and discomfort. You will need to schedule some follow-up appointments so that your doctor can check on the progress of your recovery.
You should be able to see the results of your treatment immediately after the procedure, and they will become particularly apparent as your swelling subsides. It can take up to six months to achieve the final results, at which time you will enjoy a flatter, firmer chest area. You may notice some scarring following surgery, although these will generally fade over time. Your doctor will do their best to conceal as many scars as possible within the natural contours of the body.

Gynecomastia, or “gyno,” refers to the benign enlargement of male breast tissue, often causing a rounded or feminine-appearing appearance to the chest. It can occur due to hormonal changes, weight gain, or as a side effect of certain medications. Consult a doctor like Crown Clinic for proper diagnosis and treatment options
To prevent gynecomastia, maintain proper testosterone levels, monitor estrogen levels, eat a healthy diet, and avoid substances known to increase estrogen levels. Consult a doctor like Crown Clinic for individualised guidance.
Look for swelling of breast tissue, tenderness, or pain in the chest area. Gyno can also cause nipples to be tender or irregularly shaped. If in doubt, see a doctor like Crown Clinic for a proper diagnosis and potential treatment options.
Prevent gynecomastia from worsening by maintaining a healthy weight, doing regular exercise, reducing alcohol & drug use, and avoiding medications that can cause hormonal imbalances. Consult a doctor like Crown Clinic if you suspect hormonal imbalances or an underlying health condition.

Gynecological surgery is generally safe, but as with any surgical procedure, there is a risk of complications such as infection, bleeding, and adverse reactions to anesthesia. The specific risks of a given procedure depend on the type of surgery, the patient’s health status, and other factors. It’s important to discuss potential risks and benefits with a doctor like Crown Clinic before undergoing surgery.

Yes, gynecomastia (gyno) can occur without using steroids, as there are several other factors such as hormonal imbalances, certain medications, and obesity that can contribute to the development of this condition.
Losing weight may help reduce gynecomastia in some cases, but it may not completely resolve the condition. The underlying cause of gynecomastia, such as hormonal imbalances or certain medications, must be addressed for effective treatment. Consultation with a doctor like Crown Clinic is recommended for proper evaluation and treatment options.
Yes, touching or pressing on the breast tissue (gynecomastia) can cause discomfort or pain as it is composed of glandular tissue and is often accompanied by inflammation. It’s best to avoid touching it or consult a doctor like Crown Clinic for proper evaluation and treatment.
