Gynaecomastia is a condition whereby during puberty, men can suffer from elevated levels of oestrogen. Whilst all men have small circulating levels of oestrogen in the blood stream, problems can arise when these levels are raised. The most common side effect of this is that men will develop breasts.

Not only can this be physically distressing, it can be mentally upsetting as well especially when the age of the individual is factored into it. However, that’s not to say that this phenomenon only happens during puberty. Athletes such as body builders can also be prone to gynaecomastia. The reason behind this is that in body building especially, there is a strong prevalence of the use of anabolic steroids. Putting aside the other issues with using anabolic steroids such as the extra pressure it puts on the heart, it can also result in an increase of oestrogen. This can of course exhibit an increased risk of osteoporosis, but in this situation it also results in the development of large breasts-gynecomastia.

However, regardless of the cause of the gynaecomastia, it can be treated. Much like other medical procedures, it is best that you go down the private health care route. A new private health clinic called UK Gynaecomastia Clinics has been launched. Located in the world famous Harley Street in London, the clinic is owned and operated by Dr Hassan Nurein. With various accreditations tied to his name including being a member of the Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh, you’re in extremely good hands thereby giving you peace of mind.

















There are various techniques that can be used to treat the gynaecomastia. One such technique is the use of liposuction. Much like when it is used in other parts of the body to remove fatty tissue, it can also be used to remove fat surrounding the breast tissues.  The other option is the physical excision of the tissue and in some cases both of these methods are used in tandem in order to bring about the successful reduction in breast size. The method undertaken will be dependent on the grading (rated from grades one to four) of the gynaecomastia. Rest assured though that regardless of the procedure used, it will be done under a local anaesthetic.

One of the great things about UK Gynaecomastia Clinics is the fact that you can carry out a Skype chat with video calling with Dr Nurein. The benefit of this is that Dr Nurein is able to assess the severity of your gynaecomastia before you physically attend his clinic.

For your added peace of mind, the consultation is free so even if it was the case that you decided that you didn’t want to go ahead with the treatment, it won’t cost you a penny. More details on the UK Gynaecomastia Clinics as well as testimonials and contact details can be found on the website.
