About Gynaecomastia (Male Breast Reduction) Surgery

Gynaecomastia can adversely affect mental health, triggering anxiety and depression, and may negatively impact self-esteem of many men. These individuals often desire a contoured chest for acquiring a more masculine appearance. 

Males with gynaecomastia often opt for breast reduction procedures to avoid social stigma and to improve their quality of life.

This surgery is used to reduce the size of male breasts, as well as for flattening and improving the chest outlines. After administering anaesthesia, a small incision (~5 mm) is made on the skin either around the areola or near the armpit. The fatty tissue is extracted from the breasts and the adjoining region of the chest; thereafter, extra skin is excised.

During your first appointment at our clinic, Mr  Ammar Allouni will clarify all your questions regarding the procedure. He will recommend surgery only if it is the best option for you. You will also be encouraged to clarify any doubts regarding the recovery period, post-surgical care and the expected outcomes.

He will take your detailed medical history and conduct relevant clinical assessments, which might be followed by a 3D projection of the expected result – if surgery is indicated in your case. Additionally, he will inform you of the potential risks and complications of the surgery. 

Some of your medications might require adjustments prior to the surgery or additional drugs may be prescribed. You will be asked to discontinue drugs like aspirin and herbal medications (if any) for a few days before and after the procedure. 

Mr Ammar Allouni will also inform you about certain precautions to be taken before and after surgery. He will instruct you to quit smoking and to avoid consuming alcohol and recreational drugs for a few days before and after the surgery.

  • Pre-Surgical Care: After your full body assessment and before your surgery day you get the list of precautionary measures – what all you should avoid and what all you should do for the best results.


  • Day of Surgery: Mr Allouni follows the BAAPS (British Association of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons) guidelines for all cosmetic procedures. On the day of surgery, your health status will be reassessed thoroughly and a qualified nurse will prepare you for the procedure. Mr Ammar Allouni and his team will ensure your well-being and comfort throughout the procedure.


  • Post-Surgical Care: Mr Allouni and his team will be at your side while you are recovering. Once you are ready to go home you will be receiving a proper guideline of dos and don’ts that you need to follow and instructions on how often you need to be in touch with your surgeon to share your recovery status.


  • Follow up Stage – FREE: You will be provided with a schedule about your follow up appointments. All your follow-ups with your surgeon will be completely free.


  • Personalised Care: Once you have gone through your surgery, you can always directly contact with Mr Ammar Allouni and his team in case you face any issue or concern in future.

After the surgery, you may feel a mild soreness around your chest for a few days. Mr Ammar Allouni may prescribe painkillers to alleviate discomfort. If he has not used resorbable sutures, he will remove your stitches during the follow-up appointment. 

Most people can resume work within a few days after surgery, however, strenuous physical activities can be done only after six weeks post-surgery. Mr Allouni may advise specific exercises post-surgery to aid in the healing process. In addition, compression garments may be prescribed during recovery.

The scar that is formed after the surgery reduces spontaneously and gradually. The amount of scar tissue formed depends on your skin, body condition and age.

The result of gynaecomastia surgery is immediately visible although it may take 3 to 6 months before the final results become apparent. Most patients who undergo gynaecomastia surgery are satisfied with their results. Nevertheless, you need to maintain a healthy lifestyle post-surgery. Weight gain, use of certain drugs like steroids and certain medical conditions may cause a recurrence. 

Like all minor surgeries, gynaecomastia surgery is associated with some complications like haematoma, seroma, infection and complications related to anaesthesia and bleeding. Other late-onset complications like recurrence of breast tissue, hypertrophic scar formation and uneven chest contours may occur in rare cases.

Mr Ammar Allouni has a high level of expertise and maintains exceptional standards in aesthetic and cosmetic surgery. You may feel more at ease with the kind of knowledge and the surgery mettle that he possesses. If you are looking for an excellent care from initial consultation to final discharge, Mr Ammar Allouni is your go to surgeon.
