What is Gynaecomastia surgery?
Gynaecomastia is a very common concern for men. While many can get rid of their man boobs by following a regular workout plan, others might need more help, especially if their condition has been triggered by high oestrogen levels. If you are not happy with the size of your breasts, Male Breast Reduction surgery at EF MEDISPA can help you reduce your man boobs effectively. Our highly experienced Doctors will assess your full medical history to define whether your male breast enlargement has been caused by excessive weight gain or from a hormonal imbalance and then define the type of Gynaecomastia surgery that will be most effective. Gyneacomastia, also known as man boobs, can be a very challenging condition to tackle by yourself. If you are considering male chest reduction, book a private consultation with our highly experienced Surgeons today to get some expert advice on whether you are a suitable candidate for the procedure.
All treatments are tailored to the individual and personal experiences and results may vary. We recommend a one to one consultation with our Treatment Coordinators to discuss your treatment options.
What happens during the procedure?
Gynaecomastia surgery at EF MEDISPA is performed under local anaesthetic or conscious sedation. The procedure your Surgeon is going to follow is Vaser Liposuction. Initially, a small incision will be made at a precise area of your chest to help the insertion of a small ultrasound probe. This tiny probe will break down your fat cells utilising the latest advanced ultrasound technology. The next step will be to remove fat cells with liposuction through that probe. Finally, once the fat has been removed, your Surgeon will be able to remove the excess breast tissue in the area. The procedure will normally last around 60-90 minutes. After the Gynaecomastia surgery, you will have the time to relax and discuss your aftercare plan with the medical team in the recovery room.
How long is the recovery?
After the procedure, the Nurses will fit you into a support garment and the Doctor will prescribe the necessary painkillers and antibiotics. Usually, most of our patients experience the downtime of 3-14 days and seem to be able to notice results 6 weeks after the procedure. Your Doctor will be monitoring your progress with review appointments and a bespoke aftercare treatment plan will be devised to enhance the healing process and ensure you get optimum results from your Gynaecomastia surgery.

Gynaecomastia Surgery FAQs
What is Vaser Liposuction and what is the difference with liposuction?
Vaser Liposuction is one of the latest forms of liposuction. It is less invasive than traditional liposuction as only a small incision is made to enable a small ultrasound probe to be inserted under the skin. The advanced ultrasound technology applied on the probe will break down your fat and a gentle liposuction will follow up to precisely remove all the unwanted fat and tissues from the treated areas.
