Genetics, usage of certain medications, hormone imbalance or excess weight, can cause some men to develop enlarged breasts. Even though weight loss will help with the issue of enlarged male breasts for some men, there are times when excess glandular tissue will cause even very lean patients to have the appearance of enlarged breasts. This results in a loss of confidence and self-assurance in many men as they become conscious of their appearance. They can get male breast reduction surgery to get rid of this issue.
Male breast reduction surgery is the most effective procedure for those suffering from enlarged male breasts or Gynecomastia. It is a surgical procedure that requires making incisions in the body. This surgery involves the removal of excess fat and glandular tissue to restore a flatter & more masculine shape to the chest. With the help of this treatment, men tend to become more confident in their appearance. Women also undergo breast reduction surgery; however, it includes different techniques as compared to gynecomastia surgery.

Breast enlargement can be an emotional burden on men. Restoring a naturally masculine appearance of the chest can greatly increase self-confidence. However, men with enlarged breasts are required to meet eligibility criteria to get this surgery. This usually includes being in good physical health and having realistic expectations from the surgery. The doctor determines the eligibility of the patient during the consultation session.
This is the first step of the treatment for male breast reduction in Dubai. In this session, the doctor examines the patient to better understand the condition. They may also require the patient to undergo medical exams to ensure they are eligible to get this surgery. The expected results of the surgery, any side effects and concerns, and other details are also discussed during this session.
Once it is established that the patient can get this procedure, the date of the treatment is scheduled for them. They are also given preparation guidelines that they have to follow to ensure the surgery is completed without any complications. These guidelines usually include quitting smoking, drinking, and the use of certain medications.
Gynecomastia surgeons use one of the following two techniques to perform the male breast reduction treatment:
Gynecomastia surgery with Liposuction involves a small incision on each side of the chest. Through these incisions, the fat beneath the skin is broken up. Then, the surgeon removes excess fat along with glandular tissue in order to sculpt a new chest contour that is aesthetically pleasing to you.
More severe cases of Gynecomastia may require surgical tissue excision. This is especially true in cases of stretched skin around the breasts. This approach allows your surgeon to remove a larger amount of glandular tissue.
Once the gynecomastia surgery is performed, you can expect to feel considerable soreness in the breast area.
Dressings and bandages will be applied to your incisions along with a compression garment that helps minimize swelling and supports healing. As with any surgical procedure, it is recommended to avoid heavy exercise or any strenuous activities that may involve the breast muscle. You should refrain from lifting, pulling or pushing anything that causes pain and limit strenuous activity or upper body twisting if this causes discomfort.
Many patients feel ready to return to a desk job within 1 week after male breast reduction surgery once they are no longer reliant on pain medication.
After getting male breast reduction surgery, you will see a noticeable difference in your breast size. However, the actual results will take some time to appear. It is important to maintain a healthy lifestyle if you want to maintain the results of this treatment permanently. With significant weight gain and the use of steroids, gynecomastia may reoccur, leaving you with enlarged breasts.
You must not smoke as it can greatly impair your safety before the treatment and the ability to heal post-surgery.
Typically, the procedure lasts around 2 hours. However, this is largely dependent on the techniques taken to reduce excess fatty tissue.
Male breast reduction results are meant to be permanent; however, it's important to maintain a healthy lifestyle. This means significant weight gain could result in gynecomastia reappearing.
For upper body exercises, it may take a month till you are allowed to resume activity. Postoperatively, exercises of any kind are not permitted for up to 1 week. After this time, lower body workouts may resume.
Due to the administration of anesthesia, the procedure itself isn’t painful. But, you will likely feel considerable soreness, bruising and swelling in the beginning post-surgery, which can be relieved with pain medication.
It depends on many factors. Mainly, the technique that’s used by the doctor determines the cost of male breast removal in Dubai. Furthermore, experienced doctors charge more for the surgery. Therefore, it is recommended to ask the doctor during the initial consultation about the cost of the treatment.
Yes, there will be scars on the site of the incision. However, they continue to fade away. This, generally, depends on the patient’s healing process and the location of incisions.
