Male Breast Reduction (Gynecomastia)

Male Breast Reduction is a surgical procedure to reduce the size of the male breast. Excess male breast tissue can develop due to puberty, weight gain, drugs, medical conditions, aging or hereditary conditions.

Depending on the size of the male breast, gynecomastia surgery is aimed at removing excess breast tissue, fat and/or skin, resulting in a more masculine contour. Incisions are usually hidden within the areola, but in extreme cases, they will also have to be made along the lower breast fold.

Recovery time after Male Breast Reduction surgery is usually 1-2 weeks, however, slight bruising or swelling can last for several months after surgery.

During your consultation with Dr. El-Sheikh, you will discuss your reasons for wanting Breast Reduction surgery and the best surgical options to achieve your goals.
