Male Breast Reduction

Procedure:

Reduces enlarged, female-like breasts in men using liposuction and/or surgically removing excess glandular tissue.

 

 

Length:

Approximately one and one-half to three hours 

 

 

Anesthesia:

Either general anesthesia is used or intravenous sedation and local anesthesia are used.

 

 

Inpatient/Outpatient:

Either is possible depending on the patient's medical condition and the preference of the surgeon.

 

 

Possible Side Effects:

Temporary bruising, swelling, numbness, soreness, and/or a burning sensation are possible.  

 

 

Risks:

Infection, fluid build-up, injury to the skin, rippling or looseness of the skin, asymmetry, pigmentation changes, excessive scarring if tissue was cut away, loss of nipple sensation, contour irregularities and in some instances the need for a second procedure to remove additional tissue is required. 

 

 

Recovery:

The patient may go back to work after seven days. More strenuous activity may be resumed after two to three weeks. Most of the swelling and bruising will disappear after three to six months. 

 

 

Results:

Permanent, although weight gain may cause the breast area to once again become larger.
