Male breast reduction on the NHS

Male breast reduction isn't normallyavailable on the NHS.

This is becauseenlarged breasts in men are usually a result of being overweight, and losing weight will oftenhelp to reduce their size. You'll normally need to pay privately for breast reduction surgery in these cases.

However, breast reduction on the NHS may sometimes be considered if it's caused by an underlying condition, or losing weight hasn't helped.

Your GP can advise you about whether you might be suitable for surgery on the NHS.
