We’re the UK’s most trusted weight loss & cosmetic surgery provider

Celebrate a more toned chest profile

A confident you comes from the inside and out. It’s the feeling of being who you want to be and looking how you want to look. If there are changes you’d like to make, we’re here to help you achieve the body you want to have.


Enlarged male breasts, often called ‘man boobs’, can affect your body confidence. An over-sized male chest is a condition called gynaecomastia, which may be the result of losing or gaining weight, genetic factors, ageing or illness. If you are concerned about gynaecomastia, it can be helped with chest reduction surgery.


Male chest reduction surgery is designed to achieve fat removal and gland removal in the chest area. It involves liposuction to remove excess fat and the removal of excess skin to create a smoother, more toned chest profile. One of the leading cosmetic surgeons we work with can advise whether male chest reduction surgery is suitable for the results you want to achieve.

Male chest reduction details

We want you to make a fully informed decision before you go ahead with surgery, so we offer a private consultation at your local clinic free of charge. At your consultation, you’ll meet with a cosmetic surgeon to discuss the chest reduction options available and whether the surgery is the most suitable procedure for your needs. You’ll be able to ask questions about all aspects of the surgery, from chest size and aftercare to the results you can expect. You’ll also meet your patient care coordinator, who will be with you every step of the journey. They will give you a personal quotation of costs and information about finance options, the expected timescale, our surgical facilities and door-to-door transport services.

At your consultation, you can book your surgery if you feel ready, but there’s no obligation to go ahead. Cosmetic surgery is a big step and you may want to take time to do more research and think about your decision. We’ll give you a patient information booklet, which provides comprehensive information on your procedure and aftercare. This is an important resource and we require patients to read the detailed information it contains. You’ll also find lots of helpful information here on our website – you can read about our surgeons’ qualifications, THG’s cosmetic surgery expertise and inspiring stories from some of our patients. Our patient care coordinators are available to discuss any concerns you may have. And when you feel ready, they can book you in for your procedure. We also have a 14-day ‘cooling off’ period in place, which means that if you change your mind about the procedure after booking within that period, you will not be charged.

On the day of your surgery, your medical team will make your experience as comfortable as possible and you’ll meet your surgeon again before the procedure. Male chest reduction surgery uses liposuction to remove excess fat. It may also involve removing glandular tissue and loose skin. We have three classifications of chest reduction surgery, all of which are performed by the experienced cosmetic surgeons we work with, under general anaesthetic: Grade 1 involves small to moderate gland removal. Grade 2 involves a moderate to large combination of gland and skin removal. Grade 3 involves a larger combination of skin, glandular and fat removal.

We’ll be here throughout the recovery process to help you recuperate quickly. For male chest reduction surgery you will normally need to stay in the hospital where your surgery has taken place for one night following your procedure. Each patient is given a personalised care plan, developed with the advice of their surgeon. All THG hospitals are equipped to the highest standards of clinical care and patient comfort. Following surgery, you may feel sore or uncomfortable for several days and in some cases pain may persist for some weeks after surgery. There is likely to be swelling and bruising for a number of weeks and we recommend taking a few days off work in the early stages of healing.
