How to get rid of man boobs?

The best way of getting rid of man boobs is via male breast reduction surgery, or gynaecomastia.

It is possible for men to have breasts or, as they are more commonly referred to, ‘man boobs’.

There are several medical conditions that can cause breast enlargement in men, including gynaecomastia, which can cause swollen breast tissue and even breast tenderness. This is usually caused by a man having higher estrogen levels in his body.

But for the majority of men, man boobs are simply a result of having excess chest fat over the pectoral muscles. Exercise and a healthy diet can help to shed this fat and build up the muscle behind it.

If a hormonal issue is suspected to be the cause of man boobs, it is best to speak to your doctor about medication.

Here at the Cadogan Clinic, we offer male breast reduction surgery, a liposuction technique designed to combat excessive breast development in the male chest area.

Is it possible to get rid of man boobs?

Yes, it is very possible to get rid of man boobs. If a man has the appearance of having breasts because he is overweight or obese, then a healthy diet and exercise can help with this problem.

Exercises such as push-ups and barbell bench presses are a good way of targeting this specific area. Activities like jogging, swimming or cycling can help with general weight loss.

Male breast reduction surgery, carried out here at the Cadogan Clinic, will result in a firmer, leaner upper chest area, tightened chest skin and elasticity and a more masculine-looking chest.

The results of surgery will also improve a man’s emotional wellbeing and restore body confidence.

Words from our clients:


What is the best way to get rid of man breasts?

The best way to get rid of man breasts is via male breast reduction surgery.

Liposuction is the main form of treatment for enlarged breast tissue in males. There are two different types of liposuction performed here at the Cadogan Clinic.

Traditional liposuction is designed to remove excess fat and contour the shape of the chest via the traditional technique, while BodyJet Liposuction is an alternative water-assisted liposuction that is gentler and minimises bruising and swelling post-surgery.

Here at the Cadogan Clinic we do not use ultrasound techniques, such as Vaser, because it has been found to be less effective and can cause more complications.

In patients with predominantly glandular as opposed to fatty breast tissue, there may be a need for direct removal of the breast disc, which would be done in combination with liposuction. A surgeon will do this by making a discrete incision around the edge of the areola.

Male breast reduction typically takes around one to two hours to complete and is usually performed under general anaesthetic. Cadogan Clinic has a post-operative scar programme to help ensure scarring is kept to a minimum.

Is it possible to get rid of man breasts in a month?

A patient should start to see results in the days following surgery. These will fully start to appear from around the six week mark and improvements will be ongoing for the first 12 months.
