    What is Male Breast Reduction?

    A Male Breast Reduction is a procedure in which a man’s breasts are reduced. The most successful known treatment for gynecomastia, or enlarged male breasts, is a male breast reduction. This cosmetic surgery technique eliminates extra fat and glandular tissue from the chest in order to restore a flatter, firmer, and more manly shape.

    Some males have the appearance of larger breasts as a result of heredity, the use of certain drugs, or other unexplained factors. It is anticipated that up to half of all males will develop gynecomastia at some point in their lives. Gynecomastia can strike at any age, and male breast reduction can be done safely and effectively on both teenagers and adults.


    What are the benefits of a male breast reduction?

    While reducing weight can help some men lessen the appearance of male breasts, there is often excess glandular tissue present, causing even the thinnest patients to notice enlarged breasts. Male breast reduction is currently the only consistently effective gynecomastia treatment with long-term, if not permanent, results. Patients frequently describe feeling comfortable being naked for the first time in years after this surgery, as well as an increased sense of self-confidence.

    Male breast reduction is an option to explore if you are uncomfortable or self-conscious about the appearance of your chest, or if you avoid certain activities because you are frightened to reveal your chest. The technique, when performed by our trained cosmetic surgeon, provides remarkable, near-immediate results with minimum scarring.


    Liposuction for the Treatment of Gynecomastia

    Cosmetic surgeons can now use liposuction to treat a rising percentage of gynecomastia patients. This is thanks to advancements in liposuction technology, which have resulted in a wider range of less invasive procedures. However, physician skill is also vital, so find a cosmetic surgeon who is trained in liposuction and has experience conducting male breast reduction utilizing liposuction.

    A small incision on each side of the chest is used to treat gynecomastia with liposuction, which is usually done under local anesthetic with sedation or total anesthesia. Incisions may be made along a section of the areola’s edge or within the armpit, depending on your needs and your cosmetic surgeon’s chosen approach. Our cosmetic surgeon will use these incisions to remove extra fat and/or glandular tissue while also sculpting a new chest contour that looks natural to your body.

    Following liposuction, the recovery period is usually pretty pleasant. For the first few weeks after surgery, patients are commonly given a compression garment to wear; this helps to reduce swelling and provides support to the healing tissues. While intense exercise is usually prohibited for around three weeks after surgery, many men return to work or school within a few days. However, it’s vital to remember that everyone heals at a different rate, so your cosmetic surgeon will offer you recovery guidelines that are specific to you.


    Male Breast Reduction with Tissue Excision

    To attain the best outcomes, more severe cases of gynecomastia may require surgical tissue excision. Patients with stretched, sagging skin around the breasts will almost always need this procedure. Tissue excisions allow a cosmetic surgeon to remove a larger amount of glandular tissue and/or skin that liposuction alone cannot effectively cure.

    The incisions are often situated along the edge of the areola (peri-areolar incision) or within the natural creases of the chest, depending on the level of surgery required. A professional and qualified cosmetic surgeon would arrange incisions in such a way that the scars that result are as unobtrusive as possible.

    Male breast reduction with tissue excision is usually done as an outpatient treatment under general or local anesthesia with sedation. The recovery period is similar to that of liposuction; however, patients should expect some discomfort and swelling. Patients are normally able to return to work after one week of surgery, and a gradual return to exercise is usually allowed within the first few weeks.


    Life After Male Breast Reduction

    You should notice an instant improvement in the shape and look of your chest following gynecomastia surgery. While you may have some discomfort for a few days, pain is usually mild. While your cosmetic surgeon may prescribe pain medication, many men find that over-the-counter pain relievers like Tylenol suffice. Wear a compression garment if you’ve been provided one. This will improve your comfort and aid in the maximum healing of your chest.

    While every patient’s recovery is different, most men feel ready to return to work within a few days after a male breast reduction, depending on their profession. After a male breast reduction, some men suffer a loss of sensation in the treated areas, but this is usually always transient. In the months following your treatment, any loss of sensation should progressively recover.


    Maintaining Your Improved Chest Contour

    The extra fat, glandular tissue, and skin removed during male breast reduction are expected to be gone for good. It is, nonetheless, critical to maintain a healthy lifestyle. A recurrence of gynecomastia could be caused by significant weight gain, steroid use, or certain medical issues. Drugs that modify testosterone levels may potentially have an impact on your results. A professional, board-certified cosmetic surgeon can assist you in learning how to preserve your results over time. If you have gynecomastia, male breast reduction may be the best option for you to correct the problem and feel more confident in your look.
