Male Breasts

Male breasts often appear as a result of a condition called gynecomastia. Gynecomastia is triggered by a decrease in the amount of the testosterone hormone compared to estrogen which, despite popular belief, is not exclusively a female hormone.

What is Gynecomastia (male breasts)?

The gynecomastia condition describes an increase in the amount of breast gland tissue in boys and men. It can affect one or both breasts, and while not a serious medical problem, it can affect self-esteem. It can also cause pain. Often referred to colloquially as ‘man boobs’ or ‘moobs’, the condition can cause sufferers to feel self-conscious about their bodies for years.

What are the symptoms of enlarged male breasts?

Signs and symptoms of gynecomastia include swollen breast tissue, breast tenderness and pain around the breast and nipples.

How can male breasts be reduced?

Many men are simply unaware of the existance of a simple non-surgical treatment option that can reduce excess male breast tissue without any downtime. Traditionally, many men sought out male breast reduction surgery to reshape and reduce the size of the excess tissue that had formed across their chests. However, thanks to modern innovations in non-surgical technologies, we can now physically reduce the amount of tissue in male breasts without using any sort of scalpel.

Fat Freezing for Gynecomastia (male breasts)

At The Cosmetic Skin Clinic, we are industry leaders in fat freezing treatments. These advanced treatments reduce stubborn areas of fat across the body to help people reshape problem-prone areas, including enlarged male breast tissue. Our award-winning CoolSculpting fat freezing treatment was designed by Harvard scientists to break down subcutaneous fat stores inside the body. This intricate process is known as cryolipolysis, and we offer it to patients as an effective and clinically proven way to reduce the size of male breasts in a matter of weeks.

CoolSculpting is the only FDA-cleared, non-surgical fat reduction treatment that delivers proven results without surgery, anaesthesia or downtime. This non-invasive, fat freezing (cryolipolysis) treatment is a body contouring method that reduces fat cells with results that are long-lasting and noticeable. We also offer the upgraded CoolSculpting Elite fat freezing system which is ideal to treat fat across male breasts. Its dual applicators have a larger surface area than the standard applicators, allowing our practitioners to break down more fat in less time. Contact our clinicians for more details.
