Male Breast Reduction, or Gynaecomastia Correction, is an extremely common procedure for men who wish to remove any excess, stubborn, unwanted chest fat. This straightforward procedure involves the use of liposuction to remove excess fat, tissue and loose skin to restore the appearance of a smooth, flat chest.
Many men in the UK undergo surgical procedures each week to improve their appearance and this procedure is a quick, safe and effective solution for men who want to get rid of the excess fat in their chest area or those who have excess skin after experiencing rapid weight loss.
Whatever your personal requirements, Male Breast Reduction at the Cadogan Clinic will provide the leading experts and techniques for your treatment at its state-of-the-art, purpose-built, central London facility.

Gynaecomastia is a condition in which increased levels of breast tissue exist in the male breast to create an unnatural masculine shape. The breast tissue symptom is in fact a bodily reaction against an imbalance of circulating estrogen and can be a source of great aesthetic concern among sufferers. Gyneacomastia can affect one or both breasts, sometimes unevenly, and tends to become more prominent with weight gain and age. Gynaecomastia can be colloquially known as male breasts or moobs.
Gynaecomastia may occur unilaterally or bilaterally presenting the sufferer with swollen breast tissue and tenderness. An increase in the diameter of the areola or asymmetry of chest tissue are other possible signs of Gynaecomastia. If swelling appears suddenly in adult life, one should suspect breast cancer and be checked immediately by a doctor.
The preferred treatment for Gynaecomastia is to use Liposuction to effectively remove the stubborn fat tissue. Most commonly Water Assisted Liposuction or BodyJet Liposuction is employed, since Laser liposuction and Vaser Liposuction alternatives yield only moderately good results.
Patients who have a hard and often tender disc of tissue beneath the nipple will also require direct excision of the breast tissue through an incision around the lower rim of the areola. This is often carried out in combination with Liposuction.
We use a variant of the general anaesthesia technique called TIVA (Total Intravenous Anaesthesia) that is delivered by our team of top anaesthetists. Intravenous delivery enables our anaesthetist team to monitor anaesthetic depth more closely via specialized computers to maintain an optimal level of anaesthesia. This means you will wake up feeling much better than with traditional alternatives and ready to go home shortly after.
What to Expect
Step 1. Optional Free Consultation
We offer a free no-obligation 30-60 minute consultation with one of our specialist patient advisors to help you decide whether surgery is the right choice for you. The consultation will take the form of a discussion with an expert with over 15 years industry experience in which we begin to understand your objectives and the results you want to achieve.
If you decide to go ahead with treatment, our advisers can give you all the information you require to choose the right procedure and the right surgeon for you. This is also an excellent opportunity to see our facilities and get a feel for the Cadogan experience.
Step 2. Surgical Consultation
The next step is to come in and meet your chosen surgeon at the Clinic. We have assembled some of the best surgeons in the world who will use this time to make a comprehensive medical assessment of you and your condition before proceeding with treatment.
In practice this involves a 30-60 minute consultation in which a detailed assessment of the outcomes you can achieve is made and any questions you may have about the procedure are answered.
Step 3. The Procedure
On the day of your procedure you will be welcomed at the Clinic by your patient advisor and dedicated nursing staff. Following a brief medical check, you will meet with both your surgeon and anesthetist to run through the details of your procedure one final time and answer any last questions you may have.
After the procedure you will recover in the capable hands of your nursing after care team. As we are a day case facility you can expect your recovery to be complete within 2 to 3 hours and able to be discharged from the Clinic the very same day. In some cases patients may wish to stay locally in our exclusive partner hotel the day before or after your procedure.
Step 4. After Care & Support
Our care and support continues in the days and weeks after your procedure with our complimentary aftercare programme. A series of free appointments will be made with your surgeon and nursing team in order to monitor your progress and recovery, as well as introduce you to several scar minimization techniques and bespoke creams to aid your progress.
Access to our aftercare nursing team is free of charge for a full 12 months after your surgery.
