Meet Our UK Plastic Surgeons
Gynecomastia is the abnormal development of the breast tissue in men. Also referred to as man boobs, experts have yet to determine the exact cause of gynecomastia, although it is widely accepted that an imbalance between the hormones testosterone and estrogen is a factor.
Man boobs are primarily an aesthetic concern as it non-cancerous and painless. It can, however, cause men to lose self-confidence especially in situations such as swimming at the beach or wearing tight-fitting clothing. There are plenty of ways that can help get rid of man boobs, but the most effective is gynecomastia surgery.
What Our Patients Say
Hi Amanda & David,
My sincerest apologies this has taken so long to reach you, I really do wish to convey my utmost gratitude in all your continuing support in aiding me through this final chapter of my body transformation. In doing so I give my wholehearted consent for any video, photos or any of the below to be used so to aid people in a similar situation as myself in their decision making. Because of your services, I am finally where I want to be and have the confidence I thought I would never have.
As you are both well aware I used to be a very large gentleman weighing in excess of 20 stone which troubled my throughout my teens. Having started to take responsibility for my weight at the age of 19 it has been a long hard slog to get down to the mere 12 stone I happily weigh today. Several years ago having lost a lot of weight, I was hanging at around the 14-15 stone mark still discontent with my appearance but happy that I had come a fair way.
At that time I started to explore the options of getting the abdominoplasty and chest reduction done as I could see there was an amount of skin sagging. I knew I hadn't reached my goal weight so continued with my diet and exercise regime until finally consulting with you both late last year. Since starting to lose weight I had been forced to wear skin tight vests beneath my clothes to conceal the skin sagging around my stomach and breasts, being in a customer facing sales driven role I couldn't been seen to have a lack of confidence which always wore on me.
You were always efficient, attentive and went the extra mile from start to finish in all of my dealings with you. I describe the 13TH December last year as my 'rebirth' cause finally after such a long term struggle with weight it dawned on me; I didn't have to wear a skin tight vest any more, I could just be happy within myself and feel comfortable in the skin I am now in cause of the operation!!
Now that we are several months down the line I must say I am so happy with Dr Jallali's work! There is minimal scarring and I face every day without having the thought in the back of my head that everyone is looking at me. Since the op I have even been, ON MY FIRST EVER, beach holiday with a group of old friends from high school.
Once again I wish to thank you for the hard work and professionalism throughout.

After almost a year, a lot of research and four different consultations with different doctors. I finally decided to go with Moorgate Aesthetics and the amazing Dr. Navid Jallali.
Although it may be in the higher price range, it is well worth spending that extra money for the service and peace of mind you get.
The staff at Moorgate went above and beyond with helping me and answering all of my questions. And I honestly could not give them a higher recommendation.
As for my surgeon Dr. Navid Jallali, all I can really say is amazing and a really nicest guy. From the moment I met him in the consultation, he put me at ease. He talked me through exactly what would go on with the surgery and managed my expectations.
I had my surgery on December 7th, 2016, which was a few weeks before Christmas. On Christmas Eve I called the hospital and got hold of the doctor, at five minutes before midnight on Christmas Eve, which In itself is incredible.
All through my healing process, follow-up appointments etc. Dr. Jallali has been the most amazing doctor you could ever wish for.
I know I have more healing to go but honestly, I'm so happy with the results so far and cannot wait for the next few months to see how things finally look.
Thank you to Dr. Jallali and the team at Moorgate Aesthetics for making this experience amazing.
Causes of Gynecomastia
First, it is important to understand the causes of gynecomastia. As mentioned, hormonal imbalance is usually the culprit when it comes to developing enlarged breasts. This imbalance usually occurs during the puberty years, which explains why many teenagers suffer from man boobs. Thankfully, there’s a high chance for teenagers to eliminate their man boobs when they hit their later teen years.
Also another common cause is the use of anabolic steroids used by bodybuilders. Of course not all steroids will cause it, only the ones that aromatize. Anadrol, Sustanon and Dianabol are especially known causes. Some others are weaker stimulators and are dose related.
Gynecomastia is also common among older men because testosterone levels decrease with age. In addition, men taking androgen blocking medications may be at a higher risk for developing man boobs. These medications are used to combat the development of prostate cancer, but one side effect can be gynecomastia due to the reduction in the level of testosterone.
If you are looking to reduce the size of your breasts, then you should consider gynecomastia surgery. Of course, you will have to consult with your doctor to determine whether there are other less invasive alternatives. A surgical operation is usually considered to be the most effective way to improve the appearance of your chest or totally correct man boobs.
Gynecomastia Surgery Procedure
There are two surgical procedures used to eliminate gynecomastia.
- The first is liposuction, which is carried out by our plastic surgeon. This procedure involves the removal of excess fat in the chest area by creating incisions.
- The other is mastectomy which not only involves the removal of fat, but also the breast gland tissue and excess skin to make the chest look firmer.
When you speak to our plastic surgeon they will advise on the best procedure for you.
What’s great about undergoing surgery to get rid of gynecomastia is that you can get your desired results immediately. After a successful operation, you can readily notice the reduction in breast size. The recovery period typically lasts up to 3 weeks, but you can usually go back to work within a week following the operation. This is what makes surgery such an attractive option for those suffering from gynecomastia, as other methods to remove man boobs can take a very long time before you see noticeable results.
Gynecomastia isn’t a major health concern, but it can cause you to have lower self-esteem. If you are too embarrassed with your condition, then it’s time to seek help and look for ways to get rid of man boobs. Eating the right kind of diet and exercising regularly can go a long way in your fight against gynecomastia. Gynecomastia surgery is also an excellent option, but you need to understand both its advantages and disadvantages. It is best to book a free consultation with our plastic surgeon.
