Your Surgeon Consultation
Meet with your Plastic Surgeon to discuss your desired outcomes and plan your procedure. Your Surgeon will assess your body composition and breast anatomy before recommending the best approach for your Male Breast Reduction.
Your Plastic Surgery
Your surgery will take place in one of our state-of-the-art, accredited private hospitals. You will be placed under general anaesthetic for the duration of the procedure (typically around 2 hours). Assuming good health, most clients can return home 2 to 3 hours after they wake.
Your Recovery Period
Plan for up to 2 days downtime after surgery. Initial discomfort will subside within the 1 – 2 days and, when it does, most clients can return to work. Heavy lifting and contact sports should be avoided for at least 4 weeks. Your Surgeon will advise when you can reintroduce upper limb exercises, weight training and swimming.
Frequently Asked Questions.
We’ve listed some of our most commonly asked queries relating to Male Breast Reduction. Because great decisions start with great questions.
What causes male breast enlargement or Man Boobs?
Gynecomastia, ‘Man Boobs’, or the development of excessive breast tissue can be caused by numerous factors. These include:
- An imbalance of the hormones estrogen and testosterone
- Hereditary conditions (medical conditions passed through family lines)
- Weight gain
- Diseases (for example, Liver Disease)
- Reactions to medications
- Recreational drug use, including Anabolic Steroids and Marijuana.
Can I fix my Man Boobs with Exercise?
Exercise can reduce fat storage on the chest, however it does not affect the dense glandular tissue caused by Gynecomastia. Some men are surprised to find out that no matter how hard they exercise, their breast tissue does not get smaller.
Is Male Breast Reduction surgery painful?
Male Breast Reduction surgery typically results in a pain-free recovery. You may experience mild discomfort and swelling during the first few days, but this can be effectively controlled with prescribed medication.
How long will recovery take after Gynaecomastia Removal?
In most cases, Male Breast Reduction clients can return to work 1 – 2 days after surgery. This is, of course, providing their work does not involve heavy lifting or strenuous activity. Heavy lifting and contact sports must be avoided for at least 4 weeks post-surgery and upper limb activities should be approached gradually. As with all aspects of your recovery, your Plastic Surgery will advise when it is safe for you to reintroduce activities like weight training and swimming.
Does Male Breast Reduction surgery take a long time?
Male Breast Reduction Surgery typically takes 1.5 – 2 hours. If the Gynecomastia is unilateral (only occurs on one side of the chest) the surgery time is less. Clients are placed under general anaesthetic for the duration of the procedure. Assuming good general health, most clients can return home 2 – 3 hours after they wake.
What techniques are involved in a Male Breast Reduction?
To perform a Male Breast Reduction, Plastic Surgeons will either conduct a Subcutaneous Mastectomy (the surgical removal of breast tissue through an incision around the areola), Liposuction, or a combination approach. As with all aspects of your procedure, your Plastic Surgeon will advise on the best techniques for your desired results—their decision will be based on your age, skin elasticity, and whether your Gynecomastia is caused by excess skin and fatty deposits, glandular tissue, or both.
Can my man boobs grow back after Gynecomastia Surgery?
In most cases, the results from Male Breast Reduction surgery are long term. Weight gain or drug use associated with hormonal fluctuations (i.e. anabolic steroid use) may lead to a reoccurrence. This should be avoided where possible.
