Male Breast Reduction (Gynecomastia)

Gynecomastia is a procedure that reduces enlarged, female-like breast in men using liposuction and the removal of excess glandular tissue. The procedure takes approximately one to two hours and performed under general anesthesia.

The side effects of gynecomastia involve temporary bruising, soreness, swelling, numbness, and burning sensation. You may return to work in three to seven days with strenuous activity in two to three weeks. The swelling and bruising may take three to six months to resolve. The duration of results is permanent.

The risks involved with male breast reduction are infection, asymmetry, fluid accumulation, rippling, pigmentation changes, and excessive scarring.
