Gynaecomastia/Male Breast Reduction Surgery
What is a male breast reduction surgery?
Overly large breasts are an embarrassment to most males because this disagreeable condition negatively affects their well-being. The abnormal growth of a male’s breasts is called Gynecomastia. It can occur in one or both breasts. A male breast reduction operation or Gynecomastia correction can ease the suffering of males by getting rid of excess fats, tissue and skin around the breast area.
The reduction can be carried out on males of all ages. Adolescents can be potential patients for the surgery; however, secondary operations may be necessary in the future to sustain results if breast development has not become stable.
Several males are undertaking this procedure since it provided them a flatter chest, a normal breast contour and a better self-confidence.

Once the breast reduction surgery is accomplished, the patient’s treated area will be placed with a bandage for at least four weeks to lessen the likelihood of swelling, bruising and infection but this will be removed after a period of time. The bandage will also provide a support to the new form. Moreover, the recovery is quick and does not entail a long off from work. The patient will most possibly resume normal activities within a week but extreme exercise must be avoided for several weeks.
One of the most important aspects that determine the success of the surgery is the patient’s mind-set and behavior. The patient should strictly follow the surgeon’s instructions and recommendations.
