Gynaecomastia Surgery

Gynaecomastia Surgery at Woodthorpe Hospital

What is gynaecomastia?

Gynaecomastia is a common condition in men and boys where their breasts swell and become abnormally large due to a sex hormone imbalance.

These enlarged breasts are most common in new-born baby boys, teenage boys and older men as a result of their bodies producing more oestrogen than they should compared to testosterone and this causes their breast tissue to grow. Weight gain can also increase oestrogen levels and excess fat. Medications, drugs, alcohol and other health conditions may also cause gynaecomastia.

Also known as male breasts, man boobs or moobs, this condition can make a man feel unmanly and self-conscious about their appearance.
