Male Breast Reduction (Gynecomastia)
- In many cases, fat removal with Smartlipo™ alone is a great option for this embarrassing condition.
- In cases where there is excess skin and/or excess glandular material, a small incision is placed beneath the breast around the areola.
- Excess fat and glandular tissue are removed directly and sometimes, with the help of liposuction.
- This breast surgery for men takes about one to two hours and is performed under general anesthesia, allowing patients to return home the same day.
Most men can expect to return to work in about a week depending on their job requirements. Bruising and swelling are to be expected. Most patients can return to driving within a few days and an exercise program approximately two weeks after surgery depending on the extent of the Procedure.
The result is a flatter, firmer and normally contoured chest. It is rare for gynecomastia to return after surgery.
