The term gynaecomastia refers to the over-development of male breast tissue, which can be a distressing condition. Some men believe it negatively affects their self-confidence and affects their social lives, as it makes them actively avoid certain situations, such as swimming on holiday. Although gynaecomastia can be brought on by a hormone imbalance or lifestyle factors: in the majority of cases there is no identifiable cause. Often these men have tried exercise regimes and weight loss, but they cannot get rid of the excess breast tissue.
If you are in this situation, then surgery can be very effective in correcting the shape of your chest. Your surgeon will conduct an examination and discuss the procedure with you prior to any operation.
