How do I know if I have gynecomastia?

Gynecomastia is a condition that affects many individuals but in particular males. It’s extremely common, but even so, it can cause significant distress and discomfort.

There are several key signs and symptoms to look out for if you suspect you have gynecomastia:

  • The presence of enlarged male breast tissue
  • An increase in the size of your breasts
  • Feelings of self-consciousness, embarrassment or anxiety over the appearance of your breasts

Male breast reduction surgery could help if you notice firm or rubbery lumps around or under your nipple area. Gynecomastia can also make the breast tissue tender to the touch, resulting in discomfort.

Another sign to look out for is a noticeable growth in the breast area, sometimes resulting in asymmetry between the two enlarged breasts.

To be sure if you have gynecomastia or if another underlying condition causes your symptoms, it is always best to consult with your doctor. They will be able to assess your specific situation and provide an accurate diagnosis.


Is gynecomastia harmful?

Gynecomastia is usually not a sign of severe health problems. Even though the excess breast tissue may look or feel unsightly, it tends to be a condition caused by factors including hormonal imbalance, diet, physiological changes, medication or alcohol.

But in addition to physical changes, gynecomastia can have a psychological impact on those living with the condition. Many individuals with gynecomastia experience feelings of self-consciousness, embarrassment or anxiety about their appearance.

The good news is that gynecomastia is treatable through male chest reduction surgery and many patients find this is the most effective method to achieve the body they want.

Most of the time gynecomastia is a benign condition. If you are concerned about male breast cancer, the best thing to do is get checked out by a healthcare professional. This is important, especially if there is significant asymmetry in the breast area.


What does gynecomastia treatment in London entail?

Not all patients with gynecomastia will need to undergo an extensive surgical procedure. During your initial consultation, Mr Banwell will be able to assess your condition and discuss the available treatment options.

Patients are often referred to Mr Banwell once a GP has taken blood samples and ruled out any abnormalities. From here, there are usually two options depending on the extent of the enlarged breast tissue.



Usually the first step in male breast reduction treatment is liposuction. This is a minimally invasive surgical procedure which involves making a very small incision to suck out excessive fatty breast tissue. This can be done on one or both breasts and is generally very successful for patients with mild to moderate gynecomastia.


Male breast reduction surgery

For patients with excess fatty tissue, excess skin or very fibrous tissue, male breast reduction surgery is often required. Again, this can be performed on one or both breasts and will be discussed with the patient during the initial consultation.


What will my chest look like after gynecomastia surgery?

You can view the before and after gallery and download the treatment fact sheet here. Full recovery after male breast reduction surgery is expected in around 4 weeks, but patients will need to wear a supportive garment for up to 8 weeks to ensure optimal recovery.


Will I need to have a general anaesthetic?

Male breast reduction surgery will be performed under general anaesthetic so you will not be awake during the procedure. Surgical tapes or sutures will be used to help heal any wounds and keep the small incision sites clean.


Are the results of male breast reduction noticeable?

Male breast reduction is extremely effective and you should notice results immediately, but these will become more apparent once all swelling has subsided.

You can expect a noticeable reduction in fatty tissue, excess skin and the overall size of the breast area. If requested, Mr Banwell can also perform a procedure to reduce the size of the nipples.
