Gynecomastia is a medical term that originates from the Greek words for “woman-like breasts.” It is far more common than many realize as it affects an estimated 40% of the male population. Gynecomastia can affect both sides of the chest, the nipples or the entire pectoral area.
It is widely accepted that a large percentage of cases derive from unknown sources, but Gynecomastia may be associated with hormone disorders, tumors, and the use of alcohol and drugs. Moreover, permanent breast enlargement can be the result of extended steroids usage.
Dr. Lemonas performs first-class male breast reduction procedures that involve liposuction as well as skin and tissue removal. You no longer have to feel embarrassed in the beach or whenever you have to take your shirt off!

Candidates for male breast reduction surgery include men who have one or more of the following conditions in the chest area::
- A firm disc or tissue under the nipple that may feel like a mass
- Breasts that are larger than normally expected
- Excess glandular tissue in one or both breasts
Before Male Breast Reduction
In Belgravia Medical Centre we believe in transparency and take your health seriously.
During your initial consultation, our team of plastic surgeons describes in detail and discusses in length the male breast reduction cosmetic procedure with you. We listen to your preferences, evaluate them and ensure that your wishes are compatible with your lifestyle and medical history. It goes without saying that during initial consultation our team of experts will answer every question you might have.
Initial consultation includes topics such as discussion on your desires and expectations, medical conditions and allergies, use of medication, alcohol and tobacco and previous surgeries.
Afterwards, your personal plastic surgeon will evaluate your general health status, discuss the options available to you and the likely outcomes, examine and measure your body and show you before and after photographs of past patients who have undergone the same surgery as the one you want. This way we ensure that you have a complete understanding of the results you will attain.
After the procedure
You are not taking your journey to self confidence, youth and beauty alone. Dr. Lemonas and his team support you 100% before, during and after your procedure. Your preoperative visit takes place one week before surgery and during it we will provide you a handout with specific instructions to follow after the operation. These include postoperative care at home and prescriptions for medications.
Generally, patients can return to work in about one week but should refrain from performing strenuous activity or exercise for the first four to six weeks. It goes without saying that we design a schedule of follow up appointments to closely monitor your progress and make your recovery fast and easy.
