Men are increasingly seeking help for excessive breast development with an estimated 40-60 per cent suffering from the condition (also known as gynecomastia).
Unlike fatty deposits, male breasts will not diminish with diet and exercise many clients who visit us are avid gym-goers who have found it impossible to improve their chest.

How Can Male Breast Reduction Surgery Help me?
Breast development tends to take the form of a softer area of fatty tissue overlying the pectoral muscle and a thicker area of fibrous breast tissue behind the nipple.
The treatment for male breast reduction depends on its severity. Until recently all male breast reduction surgery was carried out under general anaesthesia in a hospital with a one or two-night stay. However, at Elanic cosmetic clinic we have invested in some of the most advanced equipment available and are the only clinic in Scotland to offer Smart Liposuction. Allowing you to have your procedure and be home and recovering the same day.
Smart Lipo Triplex technology has revolutionised the treatment of most male breast reduction surgery meaning the condition can be successfully treated in less than two hours under local anaesthetic with minimal scarring. Smart lipo also promotes the tightening of the skin to provide you with a smoother, flatter chest.
Recovery from Male Breast Reduction (Gynaecomastia) Surgery
We would recommend that you take two weeks off from work and all strenuous activity, you will need someone to pick you up from the clinic. As with all surgical procedures, there will be a certain amount of bruising and swelling and you may be required to wear a compression garment to help your healing and to provide the best result. You should be back to your normal activities within four weeks and may resume strenuous activity and exercise within six weeks.
