Male Breast Reduction | Cosmos Clinic Canberra

What is a Male Breast Reduction?

In Australia, over 50% of men are affected by larger than normal breasts, a.k.a manboobs. Some are made up of fat, some are made up of extra breast gland, most are a mix of both. At Cosmos Clinic we can completely remove any trace of womanly looking breasts from your chest. In one procedure, we will liposuction the fat from your chest, and also surgically remove any glandular tissue that may be present.

Manboobs Canberra

*Results may vary from patient to patient

Gynecomastia is the medical name for the type of manboobs that are made up of extra gland that shouldn’t be there, this usually occurs due to hormone imbalances. This type of manboob will never be reduced or removed through diet or exercise, surgery is the only way this glandular tissue can be removed. Some medications may claim to remove manboobs, this is not true. The most a medication for Gynecomastia can do is to stop the glandular tissue growing any larger, the medications cannot remove or shrink existing glandular tissue.

Do you need a diagnosis before you can have a Breast Reduction performed at Cosmos Clinic?

No. No hormone imbalance diagnosis, nor any diagnosis of the presence of glandular tissue is needed. Simply come in for a consultation, our doctors will let you know if you are a good candidate for a breast reduction procedure. Even the smallest signs can be treated, even just the ‘puffy nipple’ many men have can be a sign of excess glandular tissue, and this can be removed.Manboobs 2

Will anyone know I have had the procedure?

Not unless you tell them. The procedure only leaves a few tiny mosquito bite sized scars behind, which are hidden underneath the armpit. If glandular tissue is required to be removed, the incision is made within  the areola and once healed, the scar is not visible unless you are looking for it. You will have to wear a support garment after surgery, for 6 weeks. This garment is made of thin elastic material, similar to bike pants or Skins. This can be hidden under regular clothing.

How long until I see the results?

You will see immediate results. Straight after surgery you will notice that your chest will be a lot flatter than it was. However there will be some swelling present, for all the swelling to subside and for all the healing to take place, it will take around 6 months, which is when you will see your final results (* Results may vary from patient to patient). Manboobs 4

No. We completely remove the glandular tissue, and permanently remove fat.
