What Is Male Breast Reduction?
Male breast reduction surgery utilizes multiple techniques to improve the aesthetics of the male breast area. The technique used for you will depend on your needs and circumstances. Liposuction is the easiest way to achieve results. It is able to extract excess fat. The removal of glandular tissue and repositioning of the nipple are also addressed when necessary.
The procedure is normally outpatient. It is performed under general anesthesia or local anesthesia with sedation. While undergoing reduction you can opt for other procedures like a facelift or neck lift to maximize results.
Am I a Good Candidate?
The best candidates for male breast reduction surgery are men who are struggling with gynecomastia but are in overall good health and non-smokers. It is also important that you do not have any conditions that could impair the procedure or your healing process. The above guidelines are just general qualifications. Scheduling a consultation with our office will allow Dr. Kullamaa to fully assess if the procedure will be suited for you.
Post-surgery, some movement is encouraged, but you will have to avoid more strenuous activities and lifting for about a month. That said, you should be able to resume working within a week following your procedure. The results are intended to be permanent, however, factors such as excessive weight gain may cause a recurrence of breast development.
