Gynecomastia is a condition seen in some males, where their breast area is quite prominent due to the enlargement of glandular and fatty tissues. The condition may be visible right from infancy or sometimes when the boys hit puberty. Gynecomastia occurs due to hormonal imbalance in the body due to the production of excess levels of estrogens in comparison to androgens. Such excess fatty tissue can have a psychological impact due to being considered unmanly. Gynecomastia surgery corrects the condition via surgical intervention.
Gynecomastia usually affects both breasts, though in some cases, it can affect both breasts unevenly.
The causes of gynecomastia are usually classified under 3 categories: – Primary (physiological) Gynecomastia – Secondary (pathological) Gynecomastia – Pseudo-gynecomastia
Primary Gynecomastia – This is generally observed in boys reaching puberty – typically between 13 to 17 years of age. It is most likely caused due to hormonal imbalance – with the female hormone estrogen being present in higher quantities.
Secondary Gynecomastia – This is generally observed in middle-aged men. The causes could be hormonal imbalance – with reduced testosterone levels and relatively higher estrogen levels; liver cirrhosis, excessive use of body-building medication/ supplements, cardiovascular or kidney issues. Excessive consumption of drugs (opium/ marijuana) can also result in secondary gynecomastia.
Pseudo-gynecomastia – This is the enlargement of male chest due to obesity which results in fat accumulation in the chest area.
Look and feel around your nipple area. Does your chest look unusually enlarged? Does your nipple area feel rubbery? Do you feel a sensitivity or tenderness around the area? Do you notice a kind of swelling around the area? If this is around both breasts, it could quite likely be Gynecomastia; though in some cases just one breast could also be affected.
If you exhibit any of these symptoms, consult a doctor to confirm the condition and to rule out male breast cancer.
Although exercises and weight loss can reduce the appearance of male breast or gynecomastia in men, in most cases the excess glandular tissue is too prominent, causing even the slim patients to have noticeable breast area. With the current technologies available to treat gynecomastia, male breast reduction surgery or gynecomastia surgery is the long-lasting and aesthetically preferred procedure by most men suffering from the condition.
Men with gynecomastia are usually uncomfortable or self-conscious about their chest, making them stay away from certain activities that need them to go shirtless. A qualified plastic surgeon can perform a male breast reduction treatment with minimal scarring on such individuals which will bring an almost permanent solution to their issue.
Gynecomastia surgery is a type of liposuction surgery. In most cases, it is done as liposuction with gland resection. This typically involves a small incision on both sides of the chest, along the edge of the areola, or within the armpit according to the surgeon’s choice. Through these incisions, the gynecomastia surgeon will remove the excess fat and glandular tissue to help sculpt a new chest that looks natural and matches with your body’s contours.
In more severe cases, Gynecomastia reduction surgery is carried out through excision of skin. This involves the surgical removal of glandular tissues. Tissue excision is more suited to patients with excess stretched skin around the chest. At Hasan Surgery, our gynecomastia surgeon will ensure safe and complete removal of glandular tissues to sculpt a lasting flat chest for patients.
During the procedure, an infiltration solution with anesthetic is injected into both breasts. With the continuous moments of the cannula in long deep strokes, the fat tissues are broken down. The broken tissues and glands are suctioned out of the body through the incisions before stitching them together for healing. The process ensures that the breast area becomes flat, sculpted, and less prominent.
Our expert gynecomastia surgeons in Dubai will effectively treat gynecomastia by performing a minimally invasive liposuction procedure in combination with the removal of glandular tissue to reduce the prominent breast area in men.
If you are an adult male with enlarged breasts and you are always self-conscious and uncomfortable about the shape of your chest, you avoid wearing specific clothing, or taking part in certain activities like swimming, or avoid taking off your shirt in-crowd, Gynecomastia surgery could be the right option for you.
While excessive weight is one of the main reasons for enlarged male chests, various lean patients also suffer from enlarged breasts due to abnormal growth of tissues.
Your gynecomastia surgeon will check your previous medical history prior to recommending the procedure. The technique will show desirable results only on men who are generally healthy and do not have any previous history of having cardiac issues, pulmonary emboli, excessive bleeding, seizures, immunodeficiency disorders, or deep vein thrombosis. Men with such conditions are discouraged from undergoing this procedure due to a higher risk of surgical complications.
People who are on certain anti-inflammatory and anticoagulant drugs are also discouraged from undergoing gynecomastia surgery. Further, men with poor skin elasticity are also less suitable candidates for the procedure.
The cost of Gynecomastia surgery in London depends on the following factors:
- Skill and experience of the gynecomastia surgeon
- Standard of the clinic/ hospital where the surgery will be performed
- Amount of fat to be removed
- Extent of body contouring involved
- Whether the procedure involves tissue excision too
It is advised to get an initial consultation from a specialist gynecomastia surgeon to know the cost applicable to your case and your eligibility for the procedure.
At our accredited clinic in London, we perform Gynecomastia surgery mostly under local anesthesia or IV sedation.
Most men are able to go back to work within 3-7 days of surgery.
Gynecomastia surgery is a very safe procedure but following complications may be seen:
- Excessive bleeding
- Temporary numbness
- Temporary or permanent loss of sensation in the areola or nipples
- Contour irregularities
The recovery procedure is quite tolerable compared to the liposuction procedure on other body areas. Post-surgery, the gynecomastia patients are given a compression garment to wear to reduce the swelling and assist the tissue healing. Although vigorous workouts are off-limits for a minimum of 3 weeks, most men can return to their normal routines including work in a few days after the surgery (typically 3-7 days).
Although the procedure causes minimal pain during the healing time, it is normal to feel sore around the breast area for a few days. A temporary loss of sensation around the treated area is quite normal. Any loss of sensation will gradually return in the months following the surgery.
Post-surgery, there will be an immediate visible improvement in the shape and appearance of your chest area. As the swelling starts to subside over the next few days, your new chest contours will be more clearly visible. The scars from the surgery will also diminish over time.
For best results, strictly follow the care instructions of your plastic surgeon, prior to, and in the aftermath of the surgery. The gynecomastia surgery results are mostly permanent once the excess fat and glandular tissue are removed. However, in some cases, it can return upon the use of steroids, weight gain or other medical conditions. This is why it is important to maintain a healthy lifestyle and a good exercise routine to maintain the results. Drugs that affect your testosterone levels can also lead to recurring gynecomastia. In such cases, contact your gynecomastia surgeon to learn the best way to maintain your results better.

Kevin Walker (2021)
I recently had gynecomastia surgery (both vaser liposuction and gland removal) conducted by Dr. Hasan. Prior to engaging Dr. Hasan I contacted a significant number of surgeons and hospitals/clinics (around the world) offering the procedure. Upon contacting Dr. Hasan I knew he was the doctor I would like to carry out the procedure. I am exceptionally happy with the results both now and directly after the surgery (minimal swelling, discomfort and bruising) and at present (excellent results). The ongoing follow-up and support is great too. Dr. Hasan takes a genuine interest in his patients and really discovers the results they want and delivers these 100%.
