Male Breast Reduction Information

Men can seek breast reconstruction surgery for physical reasons, aesthetic or, often, a combination of the two.

The size and appearance of a man’s chest can be a cause for concern, a belief that they are too large, creating male breasts or, colloquially, man boobs.

Naturally, this can impact self esteem and confidence and so can affect work, relationships, friendships and more.

Often this is the greatest benefit to cosmetic surgery of this kind, giving the patient new confidence and removing what has been a major psychological burden.

However, there can also be physical reasons to seek a change – the breasts can be uncomfortable, perhaps especially during sport or exercise,

Regardless of the motivation for seeking their reduction, in most instances there will suitable options to re-shape and redefine the male chest area.

Gynaecomastia, the condition of overly large male breasts, is common both in young men around the teen years and also older men.

The condition sees localised fat and glandular tissue develop and there can also be excess breast skin.

The causes can range from being hormonal through to being linked to obesity, but in many cases the cause is unknown.

Many men develop these breasts – or singular breast as it can impact just one – with no obvious cause.

Regardless of the cause, the impact is typically the same, leading to a noticeable drop in confidence.

Treating Enlarged Male Breasts

An experienced surgeon like Anca has a range of techniques at their disposal and they would inform you as to their recommendation after a thorough and detailed consultation.

Liposuction can be used, or the excision of glandular tissue (the Webster procedure) or, in some cases, a combination of both methods.

Liposuction will often be suitable when the enlarged breast(s) is caused primarily by excess fatty tissue, whereas other methods will be used when the breasts are caused by excess glandular development.

The two very different causes for male breast enlargement demonstrate why it is essential to seek a proper consultation via a specialist surgeon like Anca.

Whilst a build up of fat may be the cause, or a partial cause, simply opting for a fat fighting treatment alone may well not treat the issue.

It would be of no benefit when the cause was glandular, in fact it could simply remove much-needed fat from the region.

This is why treatment should always begin with a consultation, this is your chance to talk and the surgeon to listen.

Then, factoring in your medical history, they will suggest the best plan of action. If surgery is suitable, you will be given a detailed quote to take away and consider at your leisure.

In some instances, a surgeon such as Miss Breahna would suggest that surgery is not suitable; no respected surgeon would push someone into a procedure that is not truly in their best interests.

About Chester

Chester is a beautiful walled city located within the county of Cheshire and on the River Dee.

The city was founded as Castrum, the Roman fort located there called Deva Vitrix – this was one of the main army camps in the UK. Deva then became a major settlement in its own right.

Chester has a long and rich history, it was given city status as far back as 1541 and its importance is shown by the castle and walls, these remaining among the most complete city walls in the UK. The castle received numerous extra fortifications through the centuries, the initial castle built under the instructions of William the Conqueror.

Chester remained important through later centuries, for instance the nearby Newtown, with the Shropshire Union Canal were key to distribution.

The city is now a popular one for tourists, this a key industry, so too are public administration and retail.

A large number of well-known celebrities and famous people were born in Chester, or lived in the city, these include Russ Abbot, Beth Tweddle, Ben Foden and many people’s favourite James Bond – Daniel Craig.
