Though it’s not common knowledge, breast surgery is also a viable option for men. Gynecomastia, or overdeveloped male breasts, can be caused by heavy exercise, excess weight, or genetics. If this common condition makes you feel uncomfortable or embarrassed, don’t worry, you are not alone. Breast reduction surgery can refine your chest and give you your confidence back.
How it works
As breast tissue tends to retain excess fat, it can be difficult to refine this part of your body even if you lose weight. This straightforward procedure lasts about two hours and involves liposuction and the removal of excess breast tissue through a small incision. Breast reduction surgery for men improves the contour and shape of the male breast in a completely natural looking way.
What to expect
Bruising and swelling is normal, but soreness is typically minimal. A compression garment is provided for patients following surgery to assist with recovery. Patients typically return to their day-to-day routines in less than a week. With no visible scaring, your days of feeling self-conscious about your chest will be over.
