Male Breast Reduction

Male breast reduction is a cosmetic surgery procedure designed to reduce the appearance of enlarged breasts.


Male Breast Reduction

The male breast reduction procedure involves incisions being made around both areolas before the excess fatty tissue is removed. Depending on the volume of tissue to remove, the surgeon may need to make more than one incision. 


More About Male Breast Reduction Cosmetic Surgery and Male Breast Reduction Negligence

Male Breast Reduction Surgery

Breast reduction cosmetic surgery for men deals with the enlargement of male breast tissue, a condition known as gynaecomastia. While large breasts in men are often linked to obesity, gynaecomastia can also be caused by an imbalance of the hormones oestrogen and testosterone. In addition, male breast reduction surgery can also combat gynaecomastia triggered by medications like antidepressants, anabolic steroids and some cancer drugs. The condition sometimes leads to discomfort and tenderness around the nipples and often causes embarrassment with men feeling very self-conscious about their appearance.

Male breast reduction is often performed successfully but when male breast reduction surgery goes wrong, there can be considerable complications for the patient. If your bad male breast reduction is the result of cosmetic medical negligence, then a law firm of cosmetic surgery solicitors can help you claim for compensation to aid you in your emotional and physical recovery.

Expanding Male Breast Reduction

There is a huge increase in the number of male breast reduction surgeries being performed in the UK on an annual basis. Double the number of men now are resorting to breast reduction surgery to rid themselves of ‘man boobs’ as compared to five years ago. According to figures from the British Association of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons (BAAPS), male breast reduction, the third most popular male cosmetic surgery, was up a significant 24 per cent. The almost 800 male breast reductions undergone in the UK is testament to how popular this procedure has now become.

Gynaecomastia is thought to affect thousands of UK men and males of any age can have the condition. On account of the embarrassment and discomfort caused by gynaecomastia, the benefits that male breast reduction surgery can afford a man’s physical body and self-esteem can be ample. This rise in male breast reduction cosmetic surgery unfortunately corresponds with an increase in male breast reduction going wrong as seen by Cosmetic Surgery Solicitors in the last twelve months.

The Male Breast Reduction Operation

Male breast reduction surgery is an invasive procedure performed under general anaesthetic and usually takes between one and two hours to complete.

During a male breast reduction procedure incisions are made around both areolae and liposuction is sometimes used to remove excess fatty tissue. In instances where significant breast tissue removal is required, cuts may extend down the chest from the areolae and the nipples may need to be repositioned. The surgeon will then pull the skin taut over the incisions and stitch shut.

If the male breast reduction surgery has been successful, the results for the patient can be very positive. When however a breast reduction for a man goes wrong, the consequences may be shattering. We can help you get your life back on track by making a breast reduction surgery negligence claim on your behalf. For more information on how to start your claim, read below.
