What To Expect After Surgery
Recovery after male breast reduction surgery varies depending on the technique used. However, most candidates can resume light activities about 1-3 weeks after surgery.
Am I a Good Candidate for Gynecomastia Surgery?
If you have large breasts that make you feel uncomfortable or self-conscious, you may be a good candidate for gynecomastia surgery. Ideal candidates should be at or near their goal weight, in good health, and have realistic expectations about the procedure. Men who are overweight should lose the extra weight before undergoing surgery.
Benefits of Male Breast Reduction Surgery
Boosts Confidence and Self Esteem
Most cases of gynecomastia don’t cause long-term complications, but men with the condition often suffer psychologically and experience low self-esteem. After undergoing male breast reduction surgery, they tend to experience a boost in confidence and self-esteem, and improved quality of life.
Creates More Masculine Chest Contours
While it’s normal for women to have extra breast tissue, men are expected to have a sculpted, more masculine chest. Male breast reduction surgery removes the excess fatty tissue from the breast to give the chest a flatter, more masculine look.
Many men with gynecomastia often slump their shoulders to hide their condition. This habit can lead to poor posture over time. After gynecomastia surgery, they are no longer bothered by body insecurities, so they stand straight and tall, and their posture improves
Do you have stubborn fat in the chest area that does not improve with diet and exercise? You may have gynecomastia, so don’t hesitate to seek treatment.
