Patients who choose to have this procedure should have realistic expectations and not view gynecomastia surgery as a form of weight loss.
Before undergoing gynecomastia surgery you should avoid smoking and not take anti-inflammatory drugs, such as aspirin, for at least two weeks before surgery. Existing medical conditions, drug allergies and any previous surgeries you may have had should be disclosed to the doctor to ensure the safety of the procedure
Enlarged male breasts can be reduced by liposuction or excision of excess glandular tissue. The operation takes one to two hours using general or local anesthesia. If there is excess fat and skin, it is removed. The surgery can be performed alone or in combination with lipoplasty. To remove excess fatty tissue alone, liposuction may be all that is required, and in these cases, the scars will be small or even visible.
When the operation is complete, the breast is wrapped with bandages and a special compression garment to reduce swelling. The doctor will prescribe the appropriate medications to relieve any pain or discomfort that may occur after surgery. The patient, in most cases, can return to work in 7-10 days. He can return to his sports activities after 4-6 weeks.
The patient returns home the same day. The surgery lasts from 1 hour to 3 hours. No drains are used. The patient can go to work in 2 days. He will wear an elastic bandage on his chest for 2-3 weeks.
Over the next few weeks, the swelling will begin to subside and patients will begin to see their breast contours become more and more prominent.
