Male Breast Reduction

Gynecomastia is a very common condition in which the male breasts enlarge due to a variety of causes. Upwards of 1/3 of all men have some degree of gynecomastia. Excessive breast tissue in the male chest has been labeled “the last taboo for men.” Even men who work-out extensively are sometimes unable to rid themselves of this extra tissue and have enhanced their appearance with male breast reduction from Destin Plastic Surgery.

Male Breast Reduction Procedure

All men have some amount of breast tissue. The problem occurs when the amount of tissue is excessive or distorts the contour of the man’s chest. Historically, excess male breast tissue, known as gynecomastia, was treated by direct surgical excision of the breast tissue. Post-operative contour irregularities and scars were a problem.

A new technique, utilizing ultrasonic assisted liposuction, can be used in selected patients and shows much improved results. Small incisions are made and the tissue is removed. Patients with excess loose skin may still require excision for removal of the skin. Men who visit us from cities like Tallahassee, Pensacola, and Panama City for plastic surgery can combine male breast reduction with many other procedures.

Recovery From Male Breast Reduction

In most cases, a small drain will be placed in each breast during surgery. Please record the time and amount of drainage morning and night. The drain will usually be removed in 1 to 2 days following the surgery. You can expect to have some swelling and bruising. This is a normal post-operative finding and will resolve.

Restrict your activities during your post-operative recovery. For the first 24 to 48 hours limit your activity to short walks to a chair or bathroom. By day 3, you may begin walking with minimal activity. By 1 to 2 weeks you may begin to resume your normal activities.
