Male Breast Reduction: We’ve Got You Covered

Male breast reduction
While breast reduction surgeries are typically performed on females, this is not always the case. Many men are interested in plastic surgery to reduce the size of their breasts. Some men simply don’t care for their body’s natural distribution of fat around their chest, while others deal with sagging skin after major weight loss.

Male Breast Reduction (Gynecomastia) Options

It’s fairly common for men to come in requesting a consult for gynecomastia. When you come in for your consultation, our surgeon will work with you and talk about which method will be best for your male breast reduction. There are several different methods that may be used, including:

  • Tranxaxillary: In this procedure, the incision is made in the armpit, making it easy to hide the scar.
  • Periareolar: This type of surgery is performed by making an incision at the outer edge of the nipple.
  • Inframammary: This type of surgery is not common for male breast reduction, as it creates a scar along the underside of the breast.

What to Expect After Surgery

Once your surgery is complete, your surgeon will talk with you about your procedure and let you know what you can expect from your recovery period. Your surgeon may provide you with pain medication to help you relax as your body begins to heal.

It’s important to allow plenty of time for rest after your procedure. Your doctor may recommend that you have a friend or family member stay with you for a few days, as you’ll have some limited mobility due to general soreness. You may also be asked to wear a compression bandage that can help your body speed up the healing process.
