Male Breast Reduction


Gynaecomastia is a common condition that causes men’s breasts tissue to swell and become larger than normal. It is caused by an imbalance of the estrogen and testosterone hormones, obesity, old age or puberty or it can occur naturally without any specific reason. Gynecomastia can affect one or both breasts, sometimes unevenly.



As a Plastic and Reconstructive surgeon Mr Michail Vourvachis has extensive experience treating Gynecomastia which is a condition of overdevelopment or enlargement of the breast tissue in men or boys. The breasts become larger. They may grow unevenly. Gynecomastia often happens when a preteen or teenage boy is going through the hormonal changes of puberty.

  • While some non-surgical treatments for gynecomastia are helpful, surgery is often the only way to correct gynecomastia. Gynecomastia surgery offers certain, immediate, and permanent elimination of excess breast tissue and fat and improvement of the appearance of the chest.

You may be able to differentiate gynecomastia and chest fat by examining the texture of your chest. Chest fat feels soft, as it’s no different than body fat in your arms, abdomen, or elsewhere in your body. Whereas gynecomastia may feel firmer to the touch, and in some cases, you may feel a hard lump beneath your skin.
