In a world of instant gratification, most of us expect to see the fruits of our labors almost immediately. From a speedy text response to an instant balance adjustment on our credit card account, people want fast results. This race for the finish line carries over to cosmetic surgery, even for specialized surgical procedures like the Male Breast Reduction.
Will I be able to see the benefits of surgery immediately after my male breast reduction? If this burning question has been on your mind, Vitenas Cosmetic Surgery has your answer.
Gynecomastia correction is an outpatient procedure. Some men will head home from the surgical center and note improvements in their chest contour that same afternoon. However, depending on the extent of correction and type of male breast reduction procedure, as well as how your individual body heals, it may take three to four weeks to see a significant benefit from the surgery. Dr. Daniel Man, a board certified plastic surgeon from Boca Raton, Florida, states, “The results of a male breast reduction procedure can be seen on the operating table. Patients may have swelling for about a week to ten days and can resume normal activities like driving in a couple of days or going to the beach in a couple of weeks.”
Ultimately, the final results from gynecomastia correction will take three to six months to appear. The residual swelling needs time to resolve completely and the breast tissue to fully heal. This means that the fabulous results you see a couple weeks after your male breast reduction will only get better and better.
Today, there are several very successful methods available for gynecomastia correction. These include liposuction, excision of excess glandular tissue, or a combination of both techniques. The outpatient procedure requires little downtime, and most men are back to work or school in just a few days. While it may take several weeks for the biggest benefits from a male breast reduction to appear, most men feel a boost in self-confidence right away – knowing they are on their path to a flat, smooth chest.
