Gynecomastia, also known as enlarged men breasts or man boobs, affects almost 70% of men. The condition is due to enlarged glands, caused mostly by a hormonal imbalance or an accumulation of fatty tissue in the chest area. These lumps sometimes disappear over time but can also continue to grow resulting in what is commonly referred to as ‘moobs’ or "puffy nipples".
What happens during gynecomastia surgery?
Gynecomastia surgery is a medical procedure used to treat the condition of enlarged male breasts, also known as gynecomastia. The goal of the surgery is to:
Removes the glandular tissue and/or fat excess
Removes any excess skin
Restores the natural aspect of the chest area
This is usually achieved by removing the enlarged gland through excision. However, depending on the individual case of the patient, both liposuction and gland excision might be needed to achieve the desired results.
VASER liposuction is liposuction using ultrasound-based technology. The ultrasound emits pulses of energy wherever it encounters fat, which “melts” the fat without damaging the surrounding tissue.
Dr. Nurein likes this technique because he is trained in high-definition sculpting, and it helps him get the contours that he wants in the chest. VASER also allows him to reduce the downtime of patients, reduce the risk of irregularity and unevenness, and minimise the risk of bruising.
After your surgery, you will leave our clinic with a post-operative garment, along with clear instructions on how to look after your chest area. You will also have direct access to Dr Nurein to support you if you have any worries.
Your progress will be carefully monitored with regular follow-up appointments and direct contact with Dr. Nurein, who will guide through your recovery journey.
How soon can I expect to see results after gynecomastia surgery?
Some results will be visible straight after the procedure. There will be a visible improvement and reduction in the chest shape. However, the final results will be visible within 2 weeks - 2 months.
After surgery you will be required to wear post-operative garments, which will aid faster recovery and a satisfactory final result.
How much does gynecomastia surgery cost?
The gynecomastia surgery cost varies depending on your treatment plan, whether you need gland excision, liposuction, or both. Lifetime aftercare is included in your surgery cost. Also, should the gland grow back over time, we offer free revision surgery on a case by case basis. Some cases will be subject to a £500 admin fee. More details about this will be provided after your consultation.
When you book your consultation, our patient coordinator will be able to provide you with you an estimate of the gynecomastia surgery cost, but you will receive a personalised treatment plan and quote after your free consultation with Dr Nurein.
