What is Gynecomastia?
Gynecomastia is a condition that is characterized by a build up of fatty tissue in the chest. This can cause the chest to look more feminine, and causes the appearance of “man boobs.” This condition can cause great emotional and psychological stress, leading most men to look for a solution. Gynecomastia surgery, sometimes called male breast reduction, is a cosmetic procedure that can eliminate the fatty tissue in the chest, leaving a more sculpted, masculine appearance.
What Can I Expect from a Gynecomastia Procedure?
Gynecomastia surgery is a relatively simple procedure. Incisions are typically made to remove the problem tissue, and can be placed in varying locations depending on the severity of the gynecomastia. Afterwards, it’s as simple as removing the tissue and closing the incisions. In some cases, liposuction may be used to remove fat in the chest.
How is Recovery from Gynecomastia Surgery?
Recovery from gynecomastia surgery will depend on the method used. In most cases, mild bruising or soreness will be experienced for a few days following treatment. During the weeks after your procedure, we recommend that you rest as much as possible and avoid any vigorous physical activity. This allows the body to heal properly and minimizes the chance of any complications from the procedure. Patients typically return to work and other daily activities within a week of treatment.
