About Male Breast Reduction

Male Breast Reduction

A male breast reduction procedure treats gynecomastia (breast growth in men). The condition is caused by a hormonal imbalance, which can affect any man, regardless of age, size, and weight. Patients who suffer with gynecomastia cannot target the area with exercise. The development of male breasts may also be the result of obesity.

Some cases of male breast development can be treated with non-surgical methods such as a change in diet, increase of exercise, and radiation therapy. However, when such methods do not work, many patients seek the surgical removal of the breasts. The surgery involves making an incision in the breast and removing the breast tissue.

Before Male Breast Reduction abroad

Patients should consult with the doctor to establish the best cause of treatment for their condition. Most doctors will advise patients with male breasts which are caused by lifestyle factors, to attempt to resolve the problem with diet and exercise. If non-surgical methods are unsuccessful or will not work in certain cases, then surgery should be discussed.

How is it performed

The surgical procedure involves the removal of excess fat and glandular tissue in breast. An incision is made around the nipple (areola) and any excess fat and tissue are removed with liposuction. If there is not a lot of tissue to remove, then the surgeon may make a larger incision, extending from the nipple down towards the chest, as it may also be necessary to reposition the nipples.

Anesthesia

General anesthetic.

Procedure duration

The Male Breast Reduction takes 1 to 2 hours.

Male Breast Reduction
In some patients, excess skin is cut away and the nipple is repositioned.

What to expect after Male Breast Reduction

Post procedure care

After the procedure, it is recommended to rest and relax for a couple of days, and surgical drains may be needed to remove fluid from the surgical site. The surgeon will usually provide a compression bandage to be worn for the first month, but patients can go about their normal activities in this time.

Possible discomfort

After surgery, patients generally experience mild to moderate discomfort. Swelling and bruising are normal after surgery and will start to subside in a few weeks.
