GYNECOMASTIA

Wishing you had a smaller, flatter chest? Get more masculine pecs at Cosmetrix

If you want to get rid of over-developed or enlarged breasts and improve your self-confidence, you may want to consider a gynecomastia, also known as male breast reduction. This popular procedure gives you a more masculine chest by removing excess skin and fat tissue to improve the contours of your chest area.

Who is it for?

A male breast reduction is suitable for adult men who have droopy, sagging chests and a poor self-image because of hormonal changes, heredity, obesity, or the use of certain drugs. It is ideal for healthy individuals without other serious medical conditions whose body has fully developed and whose weight is relatively stable.

What to expect?

In preparing for male breast reduction surgery, you may be asked to:

  • Get lab testing or a medical evaluation
  • Take certain medications or adjust your current medications
  • Eat a balanced diet
  • Avoid taking aspirin, anti-inflammatory drugs and herbal supplements, as they can increase bleeding

This surgery takes around two hours. The procedure involves removing fat, tissue and excess skin from the breast area. It is a day surgery, which can be performed either under general anesthesia or local anesthesia and sedation, so you generally won’t have to stay in the hospital overnight.

How long will it take you to recover?

It will take at least a week to recover from this procedure. You should avoid any heavy lifting and exercise until the pain and swelling go away. Your doctor will advise you on the best way to minimize discomfort during the healing process.

Common side effects

After a male breast reduction, you may experience some common side effects that can persist for a few weeks or even months. In the days following surgery, some pain and swelling are likely to occur and some bruising is also common. The risk of other, more severe complications is minimal and rare, but increases if you have poor circulation, diabetes, heart, lung, or liver disease.

The new you…

Getting a flatter, more masculine chest area will improve your self-image and give you confidence to take part in a wide range of social and physical activities. As long as you keep fit and maintain a stable weight, the improved look of your surgery should last you forever.
