With over half a million procedures undertaken, you're in safe hands
Male breast reduction is a procedure borne of the medical complaint known as 'Gynaecomastia', although more commonly referred to as 'man boobs' or 'moobs'. 'Moobs' can form as a result of certain medications, weight gain, hormone imbalance or even smoking and sometimes cannot be remedied through exercise and diet alone. Harley Street Skin Clinic offer those suffering with unwanted breast tissue the option of having a highly discreet reduction, using the latest in cutting edge cosmetic treatment: BodyTite™.
The remarkable difference a Harley Street Skin Clinic treatment can provide
In essence, BodyTite™ is a form of radio frequency assisted liposuction. It involves melting down the fat into liquid form and removing it via cannula - a method far less traumatic to the body than traditional fat removal. This means that post-procedure pain, discomfort and swelling are practically null, and results are not only precise but virtually scar-free.
This method also has the added benefit of stimulating collagen production at the same time. This means that it doesn't just remove the fat - it helps to contour and tighten the skin on the chest at the same time, for a much neater finish.
BodyTite™ is the most advanced fat removal and skin tightening procedure on the cosmetic circuit right now. Otherwise known as Laser Lipo, BodyTite™ uses radiofrequency to effectively treat stubborn fat in areas such as the stomach, thighs, buttocks, arms, hips, neck and knees.
When applied to the chest, BodyTite™ makes light work of removing breast tissue beneath the surface, and leaving the area taut, firm and natural in appearance. Not only that, but BodyTite™ procedures require very little surgical downtime, so enable patients to be back on their feet in no time.
Offering incredible results with minimal recovery time, no need to worry about lengthy hospital stays or even general anaesthesia. Making use of state of the art cosmetic fat removal, Male Breast Reductions make only cannula-sized incisions that heal beautifully, and leave next to no scarring.

The answer to some of the most common questions you may have
It's only natural to have questions if you are considering pursuing a treatment for the first time, and at Harley Street Skin, it's important to us that you feel confident and comfortable at every stage of your journey. To help you find the answers you need, here are a few of the more common quibbles that we find our clients frequently ask...
Male Breast Reductions at Harley Street Skin typically involve a technology known as Bodytite™, which is a similar, yet less invasive method of liposuction assisted by radiofrequency.
Bodytite™ technology delicately melts down excess fat cells using radio frequency heat. These cells are known as adipocytes This process turns the adipocytes to liquid form and therefore they can be easily drained from the body using only a small cannula.
Some special cases may call for a more traditional approach to breast tissue reduction - i.e. larger incisions made along the bottom of the pectoral - but doctors will be sure to discuss all of your options with you at your initial consultation.
Patients find that reductions do wonders for their self-esteem and body confidence. Excess breast tissue can leave many men feeling self-conscious and often, quite emasculated. Self-consciousness as such may hinder holidays or make purchasing clothes more difficult - it may even mean you no longer feel confident enough to enjoy sports such as swimming or running. The burden of an ample chest can be a big source of embarrassment, some finding they would rather sit out and watch life pass them by entirely.
Reductions will eliminate all of these concerns, and leave behind a chest that is far flatter and firmer. Reductions using BodyTite™ will also do so without the need for drastic, painful surgery - or even general anaesthetic.
Costs for Male Breast Reductions begin at £3500 for traditional methods, and £6500 using BodyTite™, but are all available on pain-free payment plans starting from as little as 0% interest. You can discuss your options with one of our finance team today - absolutely no fee, no obligation. Let the Harley Street Skin clinic see what they can do for you today.
A Male Breast Reduction will offer lifelong results. It is a one-off, permanent procedure that will rid the patient of their breast tissue troubles entirely. However, as with many weight loss and fat reduction procedures, effects may be impacted by lifestyle choices moving forward and this will only be the case if you continue to maintain a healthy diet and lifestyle. BodyTite™ should not be regarded as a method for preventing future weight gain.
Reductions using BodyTite™ typically take around 60-90 minutes to complete. This is a far cry from the standard 4-6 hours that traditional breast reductions can call for, as breast tissue can be liquefied and removed via a small, cannula sized incision. There is no obtrusive scarring or stitching to content with. The entire BodyTite™ timeline - from treatment to full recovery - takes just a fraction of the time of other procedures of it's kind.
BodyTite™ will likely result in some significant swelling, which will gradually ease, although can take up to 3 months to clear entirely. This is when you will be able to see the full results of your reduction. You should also wear your compression garment solidly for the first 2 weeks after treatment in order to minimise this swelling.
Aside from that, patients may experience sensitivity, bruising, soreness and potentially some lingering numbness from the topical anaesthesia, but this should all wear off over the course of weeks 1 and 2. It is not uncommon for patients to continue to take pain medication to keep this under control until then.
With BodyTite™ Breast Reduction, downtime is minimal. Unlike liposuction or traditional breast reduction, BodyTite™ incisions are small and therefore heal extremely quickly with very low risk of infection. You will be required to wear your compression garment for 2 weeks following treatment, although you should be able to resume normal activities from as soon as day 2 or 3.
We would however recommend that you hold back on heavy exercise for a week or two, and contact sports - as a precaution - for as long as 4-6.
Patients generally choose to take 2-3 days of rest before returning to work after a BodyTite™ reduction. By this point, you should be feeling more than ready to resume normal duties - unless the nature of your job means you are putting particular strain on your chest. If this is the case, doctors will be happy to advise you accordingly and discuss your return to work at your consultation.
