What to expect

Here’s what you can generally expect when considering gynecomastia surgery:

1. Consultation:

  • Your journey typically begins with a consultation with a consultant who specializes in gynecomastia surgery.
  • During the consultation, you will discuss your concerns, goals, and medical history. The surgeon will evaluate the extent of your gynecomastia and your suitability for the procedure.

2. Evaluation:

  • The surgeon will assess the size of your breasts, the amount of excess breast tissue, and the presence of any glandular tissue or excess fat.
  • They may also discuss any underlying causes of gynecomastia and perform a physical examination.

3. Surgical Plan:

  • If you are a suitable candidate for gynecomastia surgery, the surgeon will work with you to create a surgical plan that addresses your specific needs and goals.
  • The surgical plan may include liposuction to remove excess fat and glandular tissue excision to reduce breast size.

4. Anesthesia:

  • Gynecomastia surgery is typically performed under local or general anesthesia, depending on the extent of the procedure and your surgeon’s recommendation.

5. Surgery:

  • The surgeon will make incisions, typically around the areola (the dark area around the nipple), to access the breast tissue.
  • Liposuction may be used to remove excess fat, and glandular tissue excision may be performed to remove glandular tissue.
  • The incisions are carefully closed, and sutures are used to achieve a smooth, masculine chest contour.

6. Recovery:

  • After the surgery, you can expect some swelling, bruising, and mild discomfort in the chest area. These effects typically subside within a few weeks.
  • You may need to wear a compression garment to help with healing and reduce swelling.

7. Healing and Results:

  • The healing process can take several weeks to months. During this time, you’ll notice an improvement in the appearance of your chest as swelling decreases.
  • The final results become more apparent as the chest settles, revealing a flatter and more masculine contour.

8. Long-Term Maintenance:

  • Gynecomastia surgery is generally considered a permanent solution for reducing male breast size.
  • Maintaining a healthy lifestyle, including regular exercise and a balanced diet, can help prevent the recurrence of gynecomastia.

9. Follow-Up Appointments:

  • You’ll have follow-up appointments with your surgeon to monitor your progress, assess your results, and ensure proper healing.

Gynecomastia surgery can significantly improve self-confidence and body image for individuals with enlarged breasts. Your surgeon will provide specific guidance based on your unique needs and goals, ensuring a successful outcome that restores a masculine chest contour.
