Gynaecomastia is suffered by 40-60 per cent of men and is typically caused by a hormone imbalance, leading to excessive oestrogen (the female hormone).
Those who have perfected their physique through rigorous diet and exercise can become very frustrated with the condition.
Gynaecomastia can leave fat deposits in the breast that are resistant to diet and exercise, meaning it can be hard for men to tackle the problem without cosmetic help.
However, the symptoms of Gynaecomastia can be treated by the experts at The Harley Medical Group with male chest reduction surgery. Male chest reduction surgery uses similar techniques to those used during liposuction or fat removal surgery, with a short recovery time - and a huge impact on confidence levels.
The procedure normally takes 1-2 hours to complete, takes place under local anaesthetic, and requires no overnight stay.
Peter Smith, Gynaecomastia patient at The Harley Medical Group, says: "I'm so thrilled that I've decided to have male chest reduction surgery at The Harley Medical Group. It is a problem that upset me all year round - I looked like I had breasts underneath my clothes, it was so embarrassing. For the first time in years, I have the confidence to wear whatever I want - on or off the beach."
