The operation is usually performed under a general anaesthetic and takes 30 minutes to an hour for each side that needs to be treated.

If you have only a small amount of excess tissue and good skin elasticity, the operation may involve only liposuction to remove the fat through a small cut.

If you have a firm disc of glandular tissue, your surgeon may also need to make a cut so they can remove the tissue.

For severe gynaecomastia, where there is a lot of excess skin, your surgeon will remove the excess tissue and skin.
