Male Chest (Man Boobs)
Having lost weight is a huge achievement, so congratulations.
Unless you’re an ironman or a stunt double for some Herculean movie, you already know that you can’t hide from ‘man boobs’. You’ve known it since high school. There’s no point hiding it, you’ve tried for years. You won’t wear t-shirts or go to the beach or swim. You find it far too embarrassing.
From the time that you noticed a ‘little giggle’ in the chest area you hid behind loose clothing hoping no one would notice. You wondered
“Do I need support?” with the thought still turning over in your mind sensing the practicality, horror comes over you.
You need to do something about it. Now. You have said this to yourself for years.
Would you like to chat with a surgeon about your options?
It’s a common disorder of male breasts, where there is a benign glandular enlargement of the breast. Removing the breast tissue may help. The procedure removes fat or glandular tissue, or both, from the breasts. This results in a flatter, firmer and contoured look. You will have a significant and permanent new look.
Is this for me?
If you are feeling self-conscious about your appearance, this procedure may be for you. It affects 40 to 60% of men. Sometimes it can occur in one or both breasts.

You may have a few questions at this point, like:
How long will the procedure take?
The surgery takes about 2 hours. An overnight stay in hospital may be required.
What is the recovery time?
Recovery is gradual. You need to take the first week very easy. However after this first week progress is rapid. By the 3rd week you usually will be able to do light exercise, and by the 6-8th weeks most contact sport activities. Bruising and swelling is normal and scars may take up to 12 months to fade.
