How can I reduce the size of my Male Breasts & Nipples?

Question:Your Questions Answered by the Surgeons at Aurora Clinics

Dear Aurora Clinics, I am a 22 year-old male with nipples that protrude in a dome shape. As you can appreciate, I am very embarrassed about this and am very keen to have this problem rectified.

I am not overweight and therefore have ruled out the fact that this could be a by-product of excess fat. I have been hampered by this condition since puberty and now feel ready to make some positive changes.

My GP has assured me that I do not have gynecomastia. He also advised me to accept my nipples as they are. However, I have watched your male breast reduction videos and am wondering if I would benefit from male nipple reduction surgery.

Could you provide an indication as to how much this will cost?


Thank you very much for your enquiry. It does sound as though you have a mild form of gynecomastia (male breasts).

If you have normal body weight and there is still excess tissue in your chest area under your nipple, it is likely to be due to a combination of breast tissue itself and fatty tissue. This can be treated by removing this tissue via direct incision and possibly liposuction.

We have an expert surgeon at Aurora Clinics called Mr Prashant Govilkar who is a specialist in Gynecomastia surgery and would be glad to see you to discuss your needs.

For more information about which particular treatment would be best for you, please send some photos of your chest area to:  and we will be delighted to give you an opinion as to the best treatment.

If you would like to schedule a consultation with Mr Govilkar to discuss the best way forward, please do so by ringing us on 01324 578290.

Best Wishes,

The Aurora Cosmetic and Plastic Surgery Team
