| Although rarely discussed, male breast enlargement (Gynaecomastia) is common. It can occur after puberty or later in life and rarely may follow hormone abnormalities. For small areas, liposuction can prove an ideal solution, leaving only minimal scars.
For small to moderate male breast enlargement, liposuction may provide a good solution leaving only minimal scars. Mr David Ross at Plastic Surgery W1 uses the acclaimed Ultrasonic Assisted Liposuction device, which minimises bruising.
Where the breasts are significantly enlarged, liposuction may not be adequate, as it would leave loose folds of skin, which would be unsightly and asymmetric. In these instances combination of liposuction and the surgical removal of excess skin would be performed.
