Considering a male breast reduction really comes down to one thing. What men want know: are the benefits of surgery going to be worth the cost, time off, discomfort, recovery, and risk of complications? Good news. With today’s expert gynecomastia techniques, short recovery time, and little chance for scarring, a male breast reduction gives patients a big bang for their buck.
How soon will I see results from my male breast reduction?
The results from gynecomastia correction – a flatter, smoother chest – can sometimes be noticeable right away. However, as there may be mild swelling, the benefits may be masked at first. Over the next several weeks, as the swelling decreases and the breast tissue heals, the optimal improvements from surgery can be seen. Depending on the technique performed, the extent of correction, and the individual patient, the benefits of gynecomastia surgery can continue to improve over the next six months.
How long will the results of gynecomastia correction last?
You will be happy to know that the benefits of a male breast reduction are normally long lasting. By following a healthy lifestyle and consistent exercise routine, the taut, masculine chest will last for years to come. Fatty tissue that is eliminated through liposuction or excision does not reform. However, surrounding fat cells can continue to grow with extreme weight fluctuations. Additionally, if the condition that caused excessive breast growth is not addressed, it may continue to cause changes in the chest tissue.
What are other factors that can affect my male breast reduction results?
It is important that men seek the advice of a board certified plastic surgeon, experienced in gynecomastia correction. With proper training and expertise, a board certified plastic surgeon can help to diagnosis and treat the cause of breast growth, while establishing the best technique to achieve the desired improvement in chest contours. Unwanted fat is normally addressed with liposuction, excess glandular tissue requires excision, but many men will require a combination of both.
