Male Breast Reduction


Gynecomastia is a medical term derived from the Greek meaning “woman-like breasts”. Although infrequently discussed, this is actually a common finding in men. It may begin in puberty but usually subsides with maturity. It may affect one or both breasts in any given individual. Although persistence into adulthood may be related to certain medical problems, most cases are without a known cause.

Men may seek correction of enlarged breasts for a variety of reasons, but most often this is related to being socially uncomfortable. If you are unhappy with the way your chest appears in clothing or are reluctant to remove your shirt in public because of enlargement of your breasts, you may be a good candidate for gynecomastia correction.

Bodytite is a minimally invasive treatment that may be able to give you the body you want without the pain and risk of major surgery. It does not require general anaesthetic as surgery does, and is carried out under local anaesthetic. It is less invasive than traditional liposuction and often provides excellent results. Bodytite delivers deep and gentle heating precisely to the soft tissue being contoured, which may lead to skin tightening.

Downtime is minimal and most patients can go back to their daily routine within a day or two. Expect some bruising and swelling, and don’t go back to heavy exercise for a week.
