Reduction in size and remodeling of the male breast.
Male breast reduction is indicated for men who have a hypertrophy of the mammary glands (a real gynecomastia) or of the adipose tissue of the breast (pseudogynecomastia or fatty ginecomastia).
The male breast reduction consists in a reduction in size and remodeling of the breastthrough the use of liposuction-liposculture. Only very rarely is it necessary to surgically remove the mammary gland.
Male breast reduction may be carried out:
- under local anesthetic as an out-patient;
- under general anesthetic with a one day stay in hospital.
The patient may resume his normal daily activities about 2-3 days after the Breast Reduction surgery and should wear an elastic compression vest for about 2-3 weeks. The final results of the operation may be appreciated after 2 months.
