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.

I'm completely thrilled with the result. I look, I think, subtly better and completely natural. Not years younger, but fresher, brighter and more cheerful. As promised, my jawline is tighter, my cheeks firmer, my brows more elegantly arched and even my thinning upper lip looks fuller and more upturned. Within a couple of weeks of living with my new face, it felt completely mine.

The fantastic team at the King’s Road clinic put my slight apprehension at immediate ease. They were professional, knowledgeable and provided a seamless approach to my treatment (Volite HA Boost), checking that I was comfortable throughout. Twenty minutes later and pleasing results were already visible… I’m looking forward to seeing further improvements!

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!

After having FemiLift, I don’t have the worrying sense of urgency to go to the toilet as much, I feel much more in control, this treatment has changed my life for the better. I am amazed how easy and comfortable the whole process has been.



I’m absolutely thrilled by the 3D SkinLift. Having two children took its toll leaving loose skin on my stomach that I couldn’t get rid of. Even from my first session with 3DSkinLift I could see noticeable difference and now after a full course I’m feeling like my old self again.
