Male Chest Reduction, is the most effective procedure for those suffering from enlarged male breasts or Gynecomastia. It involves removal of excess fat and glandular tissue to restore a flatter & more masculine shape to the chest. Genetics, usage of certain medications, hormone imbalance or excess weight can cause some men to develop enlarged breasts. Led by world renowned plastic surgeon Dr. Jaffer Khan, your experience is tailored to suit your needs and outcomes
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 and your surgeon will remove excess fat and glandular tissue in order to sculpt a new chest contour that is aesthetically pleasing for 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.
If you feel self-conscious or uncomfortable about your chest and avoid certain activities because of it, then male breast reduction is the only effective procedure that has long lasting and permanent results.
Even though weight loss will help with the issue of enlarged male breasts for some men, there are times where excess glandular tissue will cause even very lean patients to have the appearance of enlarged breasts.
Many patients suffer from self-consciousness due to the size of their breasts. Post male breast reduction surgery, you will likely participate in more activities that were avoided previously due to feeling uncomfortable.
Breast enlargement can be an emotional burden on men. Restoring a naturally masculine appearance to the chest can greatly increase self confidence.
Once the male breast reduction surgery is performed, you can expect to feel considerable soreness in the breast area.
Dressings and bandages will be applied on 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, once they are no longer reliant on pain medication.(Every patient is a unique individual and every surgery has unique aspects. Therefore no two procedures or rejuvenation treatments will get the exact same results. Individual results vary from patient to patient.)
Scars will continue to refine & will vary amongst patients depending on their natural healing process & location of incisions. Scars are generally refined to fine incision lines one year after surgery.
You will likely feel considerable soreness, bruising and swelling in the beginning, which can be relieved with pain medication.
Dr. Khan will go through any questions or concerns you may have about your procedure. He will also go through associated risks.
You must not smoke. Smoking can greatly impair your safety prior to surgery and your ability to heal following surgery.
Typically the procedure last around 2 hours. However this is largely dependent on the techniques taken to reduce excess fatty tissue.
For upper body exercises it may take a month till you are allowed to resume activity. Post operatively, exercise of any kind is not permitted for up to 1 week. After this time, lower body workouts may resume.
Male breast reduction results are meant to be permanent however its key to maintain a healthy lifestyle. This means siginificant weight gain could result in the gynecomastia reappearing.
