Dr Thierry Bron - Gynecomastie ou réduction mammaire chez l'homme

Gynaecomastia surgery (male breast reduction)

This is an intervention to remove excess breast tissue in men (gynaecomastia), which is often linked to a hormonal anomaly or excess fat. Excessive mammary gland development gives a very unsightly feminine appearance, which causes complexes in men. Gynaecomastia treatment obtains excellent, very natural results and restores male virility at the thorax.


Crisalix is 3D simulation software that shows the results of aesthetic surgery. This tool helps patients better express their request and enables surgeons to give clear, reasoned explanations. Patients are therefore better informed when they decide to have an operation.


  • Are the results immediate?
    The initial results are immediate, with very little scarring; the scars become invisible after 1 year. Nevertheless, you will have to wait 3-6 months for the definitive results.
  • Is this a painful intervention?
    There may be some tension pain, which is soon relieved by medication and a compression garment.
  • How long before you can resume normal activity?
    Normal activity can be resumed after 1-7 days, including work, depending on your work environment. You can resume sport gradually, from 4 weeks onwards.

Before the intervention

  • Two consultations need to be arranged: one with the plastic surgeon and the other with the anaesthetist.
  • You will be given a quote and a mutual informed consent form, which must both be signed before the intervention.
