Gynaecomastia is the medical term used for the condition of over-developed breasts in men. It’s a sensitive, embarrassing topic which can also cause physical pain, and many men don’t realise that it is a common condition and one that can be effectively and permanently treated with surgery.
Prices start from £5,000
This procedure takes between 1 to 2 hours and can be performed as a day case with a 1 to 2 week recovery (downtime) period before you can go back to work (depending on how physically demanding your job is).
We will use a general anaesthetic during this procedure so you will be unconscious throughout.
Depending on your consultation and physical assessment, Mr Netri will choose which of the following procedures to perform. A combination may also be decided upon.
Gynaecomastia surgery can be scheduled as day case surgery. Sometimes an overnight stay is necessary depending on your individual circumstance. However, this will be discussed at the time of your consultation.
If you’re considering gynaecomastia surgery, use this initial checklist to see if you qualify for an initial consultation:
A male breast reduction is a surgical procedure and as with any operation, there are always risks, however unlikely. Mr Netri has performed thousands of gynaecomastia surgeries and this means that the chances of an unforeseen circumstance arising during the surgery is minimal to negligible.
During your consultation, Mr Netri will guide you through every aspect of the surgery and will explain all risks that could be associated with this procedure. You can then weigh up the risks and make an educated and informed decision about whether to go ahead with the surgery and start to live a more confident, fulfilled life.
At Netri Cosmetic Surgery, it is our duty to tell you all about the risks and any potential complications that could take place, as well as the benefits of this treatment.
Potential risks include:
The results from male breast reduction surgery are usually extremely good and immediately visible. The final results, however, can take up to 6 months and this is due to some post-surgical swelling. Any scarring as a result of this surgery can take over a year to fade and it’s important to remember that it will never disappear completely.
Results vary from man to man and depend on your unique anatomy, such as the formation of your chest, any asymmetry of the breasts, the size and position of the nipple-areola complex and the quality of your skin.
Your lifestyle, such as smoking, exercise and weight are also factors that can affect the results. When Mr Netri talks you through pictures during our consultation, these are used as a guide and your results may differ considerably to those of previous patients, any friends, family or colleagues that have had the surgery and those in the media, such as actors and models.
On average, prices start from £5,000 for straightforward male breast reduction surgery. However, prices vary, depending upon several key factors such as the hospital facility, whether you need an overnight stay and the techniques used in surgery.
