Case Study

Man Breast Reduction Before & After Photos (5)


This is an extreme case of Gynaecomastia in a younger male patient. The excess breast tissue has given the patient what some refer to as "Man Boobs". This can have a very bad effect on a young mans self esteem and unfortunately is extremely difficult to be eliminated through diet and exercise.


This is the patient post Chest Liposuction and excision of breast tissue. The skin has contracted nicely. There has been a significant improvement.

Will My Skin Retract After I Have My Enlarged Breast Treated?

A common concern among patients when performing cosmetic surgery on a larger area is how much skin retraction there will be after the surgery. The answer is that we generally see a remarkable amount of skin retraction post-operatively.

The patient in the case study was fairly young and therefore the likelihood of the skin retracting is increased. As we age, we have less collagen and elastin in our skin. The process of performing liposuction in areas actually stimulates a response whereby collagen and elastin are brought to the area and contract the skin. Male chests have a high success rate in retracting back up and not being too much loose skin present.

Of course, a lot is dependent on age, as previously mentioned, as well as how much excess breast tissue and fat is being removed. The initial swelling actually helps, because as the swelling goes down, the skin has more time to retract slowly with it. You may find some slight asymmetry, as most people do not have identical size chests. Generally, if one side is a bit bigger or a slightly different shape, it will often remain this way post-surgery. A healthy diet and regular exercise will help you to maintain the best results.

Can I Get Help With Diet And Exercise After My Breast Reduction Surgery?

Our qualified dietitian can recommend a suitable diet and supplements which will best support your recovery. Patients should not exercise for 2 weeks post-surgery. One-week post-surgery, the stitches in the nipples will be removed and they usually take an extra couple of days to fully heal over. After that, patients can return to their usual routine, provided it is not causing too much discomfort. We usually provide patients with a script for Panadiene Forte post procedure and then they can continue on with normal Panadol if required. The patient may also receive some anti-inflammatory medication to prevent the occurrence of infection after treatment.

Where Do Man Boobs Come From?

Two things can cause enlarged male breasts. One is obesity, the other a medical condition called gynaecomastia. In the first case, patients can get rid of their man boobs by exercising and enjoying a healthy diet. However, the second case could require a surgical operation.

Since man boobs can be caused by different factors, it is recommended to have yourself checked out by an experienced cosmetic surgery before you decide to look at multiple procedures that could correct the problem. So, if you believe you have gynaecomastia, please contact The Dr Lanzer Clinic for advice.

Dr Lanzer can evaluate the problem and determine if you are a candidate for man boob surgery. If you are deemed eligible, the procedure can be executed by Dr Lanzer at our clinic. Of course, the surgery may solve the problem, but the patient will have to enjoy a healthy lifestyle after the procedure. During man boobs surgery, the surgeon will remove excess fat tissue and breast tissue, but weight fluctuations could cause the problem to return. Even though the procedure can be done with a small incision if only fat needs to be removed, side-effects should always be expected. Therefore, make sure you follow the advice of your surgeon after surgery to ensure your results are more long term and your recovery goes swimmingly.
