What is Gynecomastia?

(pronounced guy-ne-co-mastia)

Gynecomastia is the medical term for ‘man boobs’ – when breast-like bulges appear on a man’s chest.  Gynecomastia is very common – it is believed to affect around 70% of men, usually during puberty when the body is being flooded with hormones. For some, the breast-like lumps naturally reduce over time; for others, they remain into adulthood.

An imbalance of the sex hormones testosterone and oestrogen is the primary cause of male breasts, which can happen naturally, or as the result of taking hormone medication (e.g. steroids).

Being overweight is another factor that can contribute to this imbalance and cause Gynecomastia. It can affect one or both breasts and can range from a small swelling around the nipple to larger protrusions.

Although occasionally painful, Gynecomastia poses no risk to your health and it is not linked to breast cancer. However, it can have a negative impact on your body confidence and self-esteem. For some men, these negative emotions can contribute to more serious issues later down the line, including depression and related mental health conditions.

If you’re concerned about Gynecomastia or you’re experiencing pain the male breast area, the first thing to do is consult a medical professional and discuss how you’re feeling.

Do I Have Gynecomastia?

Many of our male patients will ask us to help them identify whether they have Gynecomastia or not. It is one of the biggest causes of body-related insecurities, so it is only natural that men want to address the issue and find a fix.

The easiest way to find out whether you may have gynecomastia is by having a look at your body in the mirror.

The normal male chest has a thin layer of tissue with small, flat areola. You may have gynecomastia if your chest has:

• Fullness, puffy nipples and an abnormally wide areolas
• A chest that looks more round and feminine than normal
• Your nipples stick out particularly when wearing certain shirts

If you see signs of these, then you may have gynecomastia; This is where we come in. A consultation with a specialist will help you to make a fully informed decision on your best course of action

Should I Consider Surgery?

If you are under 18 and have had enlarged breasts for less than 12 months there is a chance that hormone treatment can help and you should contact your GP Immediately. Feel free to call us for info. We do provide any non-surgical solutions but will be happy to give you some free advice

For everyone else, surgery is the only way to remove the gland and in this we have a lot of experience. We offer up front pricing and a wealth of information about the gynecomastia procedure and aftercare in advance of  your consultation. This means that by the time you meet the surgeon you are fully informed and can ask pertinent questions without having to go over the basics.

Male breast reduction under local anaesthetic is one of the safest cosmetic surgeries available, but no surgery is without risk. Be sure to do plenty of research before committing to it, and be sure to find a provider that has been around for a few years so you know that they will still be there if you need any follow up treatments. There are minor complications like scar tissue that need treatment 6 months after the initial surgery. It is important to ensure that these follow ups are included in your treatment plan

Recovery Time

It can take a few weeks to fully recover from breast reduction surgery and it can take up to six months to see the full results.

The length of time you need to keep the dressings on depends on how quickly your wounds heal. While every patient’s healing process is unique, most patients feel ready to return to light duties just a few days after a male breast reduction, depending on the nature of their work.

You should avoid stretching, doing exercise and heavy lifting for up to six weeks after the operation. You can usually drive again when it’s no longer painful to wear a seatbelt, approx 3 days.

This is a once in a lifetime procedure so give your body a chance to recover.

Excellent and affordable service

After I was scammed by the Harley medical, I lost hope. But after speaking to Mathew I regained confidence. Unlike the scammer Harley medical they didn’t charge me until the procedure was done. I was satisfied with the results and the way Mathew, Kate and others has delt with me. The procedure has taken place as they have described. I recommend them with my eyes closed. Also I must say Dr. Nurein has done an excellent job. I ask everyone to stay away from scammers like Harley medical. They had hit me with a lot of hidden charges. I lost £1200 and 4 months delay. Fortunately the surgery group helped me to get my life back on tract.

Gyno Surgery

I used the surgery group for my gynecomastia surgery with Dr nurein. Although too early to comment on my results as the surgery was today I have to say that the Surgery Group were amazing from start to finish. Matthew was my patient coordinator and nothing was too much trouble. Any questions I had he responded quickly either via txt or on the phone. This was also evenings and weekends it didn't matter. There was never any pressure at al, I would highly recommend using the surgery group for your cosmetic procedure in particular Gyno surgery and hair transplants as Matthew is extremely knowledgeable on these subjects....

Best gynecomastia place

I went into this surgery very confident as I watched a lot of videos of lebowitz so studied how the operation was going. I was not nervous at all. When I have entered the surgery room they took excellent care of me, the nurses are very funny and have a good sense of humour and do a great. The local anaesthetic Injection didn't hurt at all, pain free. And when they have filled you up with the liquid they wait a good 10 minutes to ensure that you will feel no pain at all. Dr. Nurein did a fantastic job. And he went through everything he was doing to me during the surgery and answered every question i had for him. My chest is looking amazing now....

Good Experience

Only 4 days out from my operation so yet to get the real results. Dr. Nurein was great during the operation and very attentive to whether I was in pain or not. The nurses also were great and friendly and put me at ease (I planned on requesting something to relax through the operation but on the day felt completely comfortable and didn't require any). I look forward to my results and thankyou to Dr. Nurein and his team! 🙂

Working with COVID-protected facilities

Working Safely

  • Routinely asking patients for relevant COVID-19 history of their own health and people they are in contact with. It is important that patients provide accurate information.
  • Following social distancing guidelines by limiting the contact of patients with one another whether in consultation or in a procedure and will arrange waiting room seating accordingly.
  • Using suitable equipment/PPE (Personal Protective Equipment) as recommended by the Centre for Disease Control (CDC) or another equivalent governmental agency.
  • Routinely using relevant health histories and daily temperature monitoring of all clinic staff and patients as part of their strategy to prevent contagion. Additionally, and where available, follows all government guidelines on use of testing to monitor staff.
  • In addition to using proper PPE, each clinic uses appropriate cleansing, disinfecting and sterilization procedures throughout the office/clinic. Also, uses proper waste disposal methods for any materials that could be contaminated.
  • Advising patients of handwashing protocols in the office/clinic and how to change gloves, gown and masks.
  • Assuring the public that the staff have received additional training with regards to proper COVID-19 infection control methods
  • And perhaps most importantly, the surgeon you have chosen is the one performing the surgical steps of your procedure, rather than delegating it to unlicensed technicians.

 

Clinic Advice

Regarding COVID19, we are working with selected COVID-protected facilities who have now reopened. These clinics have started a phased return model for a new normal with various safety measures in place including a limited number of procedures, reduced footfall through the clinic and enhanced PPE for staff. On the day, you will be asked to complete a COVID questionnaire and have your temperature taken on entry, as well as being asked to wash your hands. You will be asked to wear a face mask so that theoretically you are protected and you protect staff members in case anyone happens to be positive whilst asymptomatic.

Surgery Group have adopted guidelines from the International Society of Hair Restoration Surgery for use in all clinics taking into account UK law and each clinic has completed a COVID19 risk assessment of the patient journey through the clinic and taken steps to minimise risk, and we hope that by doing so, the risk of contracting coronavirus is significantly less than your weekly supermarket shop, however, it is not possible to guarantee that the risk of catching it is zero, such as in the nature of the virus.

To be clear, the government’s advice for the time being remains to stay at home unless you need to leave the house for one of 4 reasons including “any medical need” –

Corona Virus Government Advice

Without specific national guidance on hair transplant clinics, we deem it safe to offer the service in a limited capacity with the measures we have taken, but it is up to you to decide if leaving the house to attend a hair transplant clinic constitutes a “medical need”.
