Gynaecomastia Surgery

Male breast reduction/gynaecomastia surgery is performed under general anaesthesia in a fully accredited hospital with the assistance of a qualified anaesthetist. Expect the operation to take two hours, and you are discharged the same day – no overnight stay required.

Surgery involves removes excess fat and glandular tissue from the breasts, and in severe cases excess skin may also need to be removed. The surgery is usually done by a combination of liposuction to remove the excess fat and contour the chest wall, and a small incision around the lower part of the areola to resect the glandular breast tissue. The scars around the areola once healed are barely perceptible.

For the extremely enlarged and droopy male breast, a more significant may be indicated. Extended involves removal of considerable breast tissue, fat and skin. This procedure may require larger incisions and create more conspicuous scars, as for female breast reductions.

After your gynaecomastia surgery

Recovery from a male breast reduction procedure is generally quick and easy, and many patients can return to their normal activities after a few days. Strenuous exercise of the upper body and arms should be avoided for six weeks.

You may experience some mild discomfort over the first week, for which you are prescribed oral pain medication. Mild swelling of the chest area and bruising will resolve within two to three weeks. A compression garment is worn under the clothes for six weeks to facilitate the best chest contour and minimise swelling.

The final results of can take up to six months to be fully apparent.
