What to expect from gynecomastia surgery
At our boutiqe practice in Ottawa, male breast reduction is a popular procedure for our male patients. A male breast reduction flattens and enhances the chest contours. This procedure decreases the size of large breasts by removing excess skin, fat, and breast tissue using liposuction and/or surgical excision. A very subtle incision is made around the nipple in most cases, although in situations where large amounts of excess skin will remain, additional incisions may be necessary. Your surgeon will discuss which technique is right for you based upon your individual needs and desired outcome.
Male Breast Reduction Recovery
Many of our male breast reduction patients report that recovery is quick and easy. After 2 weeks, you should be able to return to regular activities, and you can expect to return to more strenuous activities after 6 weeks (with your surgeon’s approval).
