This is a condition where men have the appearance of breast formation on their chest. It can be very distressing to affected individuals as it often shows through clothing and can make them very self-conscious.

• The condition may occur at puberty, often it resolves by the time individuals reach their twenties, but sometimes it fails to.
• The condition may be related to being overweight
• Occasionally the condition may be related to a hormone imbalance.

Gynaecomastia (man boobs or moobs)

The severity is determined in terms of the excess volume and excess skin.

If the excess volume is not too great, there is little excess skin and a reasonable proportion of it is fat, liposuction alone can treat the condition (this refers to most patients).

If the individual is very slim and has a discrete bud of glandular tissue, formal excision is necessary. This is best done with a small incision running half way around the border of the nipple areolar complex

Where there is a large excess of skin, and an individual simply wishes to look good in clothes liposuction can help (but may sometimes need a secondary skin excision).

Where there is a large excess of skin and there is a desire to be as flat as possible, then removal of skin and fat is necessary, either as a mastectomy type scar or as an anchor shaped scar, or occasionally with a scar just around the nipple areolar complex.

For further advice, feel free to contact us by phone on 0800 612 5919 or on our ask a question page.
