How Does Male Breast Reduction Surgery Work?
To eliminate excess breast tissue and restore a more masculine contour to your chest, gynecomastia repair can involve several types of procedures, including liposuction, direct excision of the gland, and radiofrequency skin tightening.
Male breast reduction surgery is performed under general anesthesia and typically takes 1 – 2 hours to complete.
During the surgery, Dr. Kaufman or Dr. Doshi will make an incision around the areola. or in the natural crease of the chest. Through this incision, excess breast tissue and fat are removed, and the remaining tissue is sculpted to create a more masculine contour.
In some cases, your surgeon may also need to reposition the nipples for a more natural appearance.
After the surgery, you will need to wear a compression garment to help reduce swelling and promote effective healing. As is the case with most surgeries, you’ll need to avoid strenuous activity for several weeks following the procedure, but it’s likely you’ll be able to return to work and other normal activities within a week or two.
