Words cannot describe how impressed I am by the entire service I received at Candover Clinic. From start to finish all staff, from the consultant, doctors and nurses to the receptionists, were incredibly accommodating, reassuring and above all, professional. The individual care I received was second to none and the follow-up provision has been equally impressive. Thank you!”
Male Breast Reduction (Gynaecomastia Reduction)
Men can have breast reduction surgery if they have enlarged breasts, a condition known as gynaecomastia. Breast reduction surgery can be carried out to flatten the breast area of men who feel self-conscious about their appearance. The procedure involves an incision to remove the excess tissue and liposuction to remove the excess fat. The benefits of surgery can lead to increased self-confidence and self-esteem with the choice to wear a wider selection of clothes.
