What is Gynecomastia?

Gynecomastia is one of the most common concerns for men. Although many can achieve male breast reduction for free by following a regular workout routine, others might need additional help with male breast reduction. Gynecomastia surgery, also known as ‘man boob’ surgery, can assist you with a challenging condition that you may find difficult to tackle by yourself.

The condition can be triggered by gynecomastia causes such as high oestrogen levels. If you are not happy with the size of your chest, male breast reduction surgery in London at EF MEDISPA can help you reduce your man boobs effectively.

Our highly experienced Doctors will:

  • Assess your full medical history, defining whether your gynecomastia causes are due to excessive weight gain or from a hormonal imbalance.
  • Define the type of gynecomastia treatment that will be most effective.
  • Tailor gynecomastia treatment to you, considering personal experiences and individual physiology.

All treatments are tailored to the individual and personal experiences and results may vary. We recommend a one to one consultation with our Treatment Coordinators to discuss your treatment options.

What happens during Gynecomastia Surgery?

  • Gynecomastia surgery is performed under local anaesthetic or conscious sedation.
  • The ‘man boobs’ surgery procedure your Surgeon is uses is Vaser Liposuction.
  • A small incision is made within a precise area of your chest to help the insertion of a small ultrasound probe.
  • The probe will break down your fat cells utilising the latest advanced ultrasound technology.
  • Fat cells are then removed with liposuction through the probe.
  • Once the fat that gynecomastia causes has been removed, your Surgeon will be able to remove any excess breast tissue in the area.

This procedure will normally last around 60-90 minutes. After your male breast reduction surgery in London, you will have the time to relax and discuss your male chest reduction aftercare plan with the expert medical team in the recovery room.

Male Breast Reduction FAQs

What Causes Male Breasts to Develop?

There are various gynecomastia causes, with many of our patients opting for gynecomastia treatment for a wide range of reasons. It is all down to the fact that too much estrogen is produced in the body, resulting in the need for ‘man boob’ surgery due to gynecomastia lumps emerging.

Causes of this consist of:

- Hormone imbalance

- Obesity

- Puberty

- Older age

Other rare causes resulting in the need for gynecomastia treatment include side effects of some medicine, illegal drugs, health conditions, and genetic disorders.

How Can I Get Rid of My Man Boobs?

If your ‘man boobs’ are caused by a gynecomastia lump, which is excess fat, your first option would be to try a balanced diet and a regular workout schedule. If you seem to be unable to get rid of them, Gynecomastia surgery could be a solution to your problem. Talk to one of our Treatment Coordinators and Surgeons today to find out whether you are a suitable candidate for our male breast reduction surgery in London.

After suffering with severe digestive problems for many years, I decided to book a course of hydrotherapy treats at EE Medispa in Chelsea. Having never had this treatment I was quite nervous but the staff and my practitioner Victoria made the whole process very comfortable. I have now been seeing Victoria for regular sessions for about two months and I can honestly say it has changed my life. I have completely changed my diet and the process of detoxification has helped me eliminate everything that was causing me to feel so unwell for many years. I would highly recommend this service to anyone with digestive issues. I am now on my second course of treatments and continue to see great results. This is one of the best investments in my health I have ever made. Thank you so much Victoria! : )

The Zone Out treatment was fantastic, it relaxed my mind and body, clearing my head of all that “London” stress … Victoria, the Hydrotherapist was incredibly knowledgeable and informative; above all making me feel at ease …I can’t wait to come back again!

Jennifer Burton

Zone Out Colonic Hydrotherapy

I had Zone Out Colonic Hydrotherapy. I was immediately at ease with Victoria, she was both friendly and professional. I wasn't sure what to expect with this treatment but within a few minutes of it starting I was already in an extremely relaxed, almost meditative state. It was like being transported into a zone between asleep and awake where you are totally at calm - thoughts can enter your mind but you just let them float away. Afterwards I felt as though I had been asleep for a hours, I was relaxed but also rejuvenated. I would highly recommend trying this!

I had the Colonic; Victoria thoroughly explained every part of the procedure, which made for a relaxing experience. I can’t wait to come back again!

Victoria floats in, complete with bangles and maxiskirt, far from the overall-clad dominatrix I had envisaged. The consultation and treatment explanation are extensive but reassuring and by the time I am gowned up on the bed, I’d honestly trust her with my life. The process is much more civilised than you’d think. Within four sessions, my eyes are brighter, my skin is clearer and I have the energy of a five-year old on a sugar high. The difference is astounding.”

Victoria is incredibly nice about what must be one of the world’s least appealing jobs…I feel so slim, spritely and ready for a dance with John Travolta

I really can't tell you how much better my tummy feels today, like a real weight has been lifted. She is a fantastic therapist, and incredibly knowledgeable.
