Male breast reduction (Gynecomastia) is a very common condition found in almost half of the male population. This procedure will remove any excessive fat, skin or glandular tissue. The procedure offers a firmer, flatter appearance to the chest area. Boosting your self-esteem and confidence. Scarring is typically very minimal and fades over time.
The procedure is done on an outpatient basis under intravenous anesthesia here at the surgery center. Excess breast tissue or fat can be removed with liposuction, excision, or a combination of both.
Recuperation and Healing:
You will go home several hours after surgery to be cared for by a friend or relative. A compression vest or chest wrapping is usually indicated for a week or two after surgery to help reduce swelling. Initial discomfort is controlled with oral pain medication. Sutures are usually removed in 7-14 days. Scars will usually fade in 6-12 months. Remember everyone heals differently.
An additional procedure that would enhance the result is Liposuction of the axillary area to reduce excess fat deposits.
