Costs & Procedure Information
Male breast reduction surgery is a procedure to remove excess tissue, fat and sagging skin, helping to give you a flatter and more masculine chest. Gynaecomastia, the presence of this excess breast tissue, can occur for a number of reasons including weight loss or changes during puberty. It is a common condition that mainly affects teenage boys and older men, although it can affect a man at any time in his life.
Dubbed ‘man-boobs’ by the media, gynaecomastia can be an upsetting condition to live with. The area can be tender to touch or painful which is the reason that men across the UK choose to undergo surgery.
In some cases, removing the cause of the gynaecomastia (such as changing medication or reducing alcohol intake) may reduce the extra breast tissue, however for others, an operation to flatten the area is necessary. The operation itself takes around 90 minutes and will be performed under general anaesthetic as a day case procedure.
The NHS does not commonly carry out male breast reductions unless there is associated distress or pain. For this reason, many men choose to have the procedure done at a private healthcare clinic.
A free consultation with one of our surgeons is required at our private diagnostic and surgical centre in Newton-le-Willows, Manchester or Liverpool locations.
Gynaecomastia surgery is performed at Newton-le-Willows under general anaesthetic by highly trained surgeons.
Each patient is unique – different expectations and as such different requirements. We don’t apply a “one size fits all” approach to cosmetic surgery, and as such the price of the surgery will depend on the exact requirements of your individual procedure. We have included an expected price range below, but really – we’d love to meet with you first to gain a better understanding of what you are looking for and what we can do to help you achieve the desired outcome.
The first step, should be to book in for a free of charge initial consultation – see the Consultant, so that you can discuss your hopes and expectations. Once the consultant has had a conversation with you, a member of our team will be in touch to provide you with a full quote. This quote will include everything – pre-op, surgery itself, post-op and aftercare.
