Gynecomastia surgery reduces the size of the breasts in men, smoothing and improving the contours of the chest. In severe cases of gynecomastia, the weight of excess breast tissue can cause the breasts to flare and stretch the areola, in these cases, the position and size of the areola can be surgically improved and the excess skin can be reduced.
While losing weight can help reduce the appearance of breasts for some men, there is often too much glandular tissue, which causes even very thin patients to notice enlarged breasts. Currently, male breast reduction is the only effective treatment for gynecomastia that has lasting, if not permanent, results.
Gynecomastia surgery can be in the form of liposuction, a procedure to remove breast fat, but not the breast tissue itself, or a mastectomy, a surgical procedure that involves removal of the tissue under the breast.
What results can I expect?
You should discuss this during your consultation before surgery, and make sure you fully understand all that is involved and keep your expectations realistic.
What kind of scar should I expect?
In general, it is not very visible. Sometimes, small scars remain in the armpit or chest after liposuction. Some people need more extensive procedures, and this should be discussed in detail before surgery.
How much time should I take from work or school?
This depends on the type of work that is done and the scope of the surgical procedure. It is usually between 3 and 10 days, but the healing time varies for each individual.
