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 (gynecomastia surgery) from Destin Plastic Surgery.

How Is Male Breast Reduction Performed?

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.

How Long Is Male Breast Reduction Recovery?

Recovery after male breast reduction depends on the specifics of the surgery and the nature of your job. In general, patients return to normal activities and non-strenuous work within 1 to 2 weeks.

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.

Dr. Burden performed a tummy tuck two years ago. The results have been simply extraordinary. Not a day goes by I don't marvel at the results. In addition to the tummy tuck, I had an injury to my hip bone and a large scar that he had to work around. He made the injury look very symmetrical and as natural as possible. My abs are rock hard with nice muscle definition. What was truly remarkable, however, was the results of the back liposuction. He told me I would not be happy with the tummy tuck alone. While I read on the internet that back liposuction is rarely very helpful, I trusted Dr. Burden. The results were astonishing. I mean that quite literally. All my feminine curves were restored with the back procedure - waist and buttocks. The staff were also exceptional to deal with. The recovery is not for the faint of heart but I don't have a moment of regret. None.

My experience was a little nerve-racking at the beginning especially with the poor quality of customer service from the nursing staff or the receptionist I don’t know what the title is however Dr. Enis did an amazing job with my breasts and he gave me everything I wanted no scars my breast are perfect the same size I’ve gotten nothing but compliments from friends and family the aftercare was great as well. I have no complaints about these doctors and the staff could’ve been a lot warmer and inviting but the doctors are great and they know what they’re doing at least Dr. Enos I got my breast augmentation intothousand10 and nine years later it still looks phenomenal beautiful he did a perfect job!
