Male breast reduction surgery can diminish enlarged or bulging breast tissue caused by the common condition known as gynecomastia. Although some men develop a degree of gynecomastia during puberty and find that it eventually fades, other cases of the condition do not resolve on their own and can ultimately appear in adulthood. Gynecomastia may be the result of a hormonal imbalance, genetics, obesity, the use of certain kinds of drugs/steroids, or other factors. Undergoing a male breast reduction treatment offers the cosmetic benefits of removing the excess fat and/or glandular tissue that is characteristic of gynecomastia and giving the chest a firmer, flatter appearance. The procedure can enhance both aesthetics and self-esteem since gynecomastia is known to create significant levels of self-consciousness among many individuals who experience it.
Patients will likely experience swelling, bruising, or discomfort around the incisions, which can be eased with prescribed medication as needed and should fade during the healing process. To assist with recovery, a compression garment may be recommended to be worn for several weeks to protect your incisions and reduce swelling. Most patients can return to work within one week after surgery and resume moderate activities within two to three weeks. Strenuous activities should be avoided for a minimum of four to six weeks. It is very important to follow all post-operative guidelines to achieve a smooth recovery.
