Male Breast Reduction Surgery in Bristol
Also known as gynecomastia or gyno removal surgery, male breast reduction surgery is the correction of over-developed or enlarged breasts in men, often referred to as ‘man boobs’.
Gynecomastia is an enlargement of the gland tissue of the male breast, whilst most teenage boys experience some degree of breast enlargement affecting one or both breasts, by early adulthood less than 10% of males feel they have a problem. This also rises with age reaching approximately 30% in older men. In both cases, male breast reduction surgery can offer a life changing option to increase confidence and self esteem.

Why you might need male breast reduction surgery
Enlarged breasts in men i.e. ‘man boobs’ or ‘moobs’ can cause a great deal of embarrassment. Whilst all men have breast tissue, some have an excessive amount and this can lead to the breasts resembling more of a female figure. Men can be fit and healthy and still have gynecomastia, and in most cases excessive amounts of exercise will not solve the problem.
You may be considering gyno removal or ‘man boobs surgery’ if you experience any of the following:
- You are a male who feels your breasts are too large, and it’s causing you anxiety or embarrassment
- You are in good shape and aren’t overweight, but your breasts are large in comparison to the rest of your body
- Despite regular physical exercise, your breasts remain oversized
In all of these cases, gyno removal surgery could be a suitable option, and Mr Sherif Wilson would be happy to speak to you about the type of results you could achieve
