Gynaecomastia is a condition affecting males (sometimes referred to as man boobs) where the breast swells and becomes larger than normal. This condition is experienced by a large number of men and sometimes even teenage boys. It is mostly for aesthetic reasons that patients choose to have surgery.
Gynaecomastia surgery or male breast reduction surgery is the procedure to reduce this excessive male breast tissue. The procedure itself is relatively straightforward. Excess fat, tissue and skin is removed and the chest is contoured for a more masculine appearance.
