Male Breast Removal Surgery

Gynecomastia is a medical term that comes from the Greek, meaning "women-like breasts," affecting approximately 50 percent of men in one or both breasts.

Complications are infrequent and usually minor when male breast-reduction surgery is performed by a qualified plastic surgeon.

Gynecomastia consists primarily of excessive fatty tissue. Therefore your surgeon will generally use liposuction to permanently remove the excess fat.

How is Male Breast Removal Surgery Performed?

Depending on the degree of breast enlargement, your surgeon will select the type of procedure. A small incision will be made around the lower half of the areola, followed by liposuction of the chest wall or removal of excess tissue under the breast. All breast tissue immediately under the nipple will be removed in men with tissue that is more glandular in nature.

For more fatty tissue, liposuction is ideal. This procedure requires a small suction rod(cannula) to be inserted into the incision to remove excess fat . However, in a few cases, after fat removal, there may be a large amount of excess skin which needs to be removed. This may result in some scarring.

The procedure generally takes between one and two hours under general anesthetic.

What should I expect coming out Male Breast Removal surgery?

Temporary swelling, bruising, numbness and a burning sensation is common after this surgery. Most likely you will be given a compression garment to wear for several weeks after the surgery.

What should I expect in my recovery period?

Although you may experience some soreness, light activity can be resumed within a few days. Most patients are able to return to non-active work within three to seven days, and resume more active work in two to three weeks. The operated areas should not be exposed to sunlight for at least six months in order to avoid permanently changing the skin pigmentation.

Exercising, such as lifting, pulling and pushing motions, should be avoided for at least six weeks, to aid in the healing of the scars.

What should I expect for my long term outcome?

Excess fat is permanently removed with liposuction, provided that the patient adopts a healthy life style and avoids weight gain and the use of certain drugs.
