  • The procedure can alleviate physical discomforts, such as chafing, irritation, and tenderness, making daily activities and exercise more enjoyable
  • After male breast reduction, individuals may experience improved posture and reduced strain on the back and shoulders
  • Many men feel more comfortable engaging in sports and exercise

Qualifying for Male Breast Reduction

The procedure is suitable for individuals diagnosed with gynecomastia, a condition characterized by the enlargement of male breast tissue. Those experiencing physical discomfort, such as chafing, tenderness, or irritation, may also be good candidates for the procedure due to enlarged male breasts. Other candidacy considerations include the following:

  • Candidates should be in good overall health and free from any medical conditions that could pose risks during surgery or the recovery process
  • Male breast reduction is often recommended for individuals whose breast development has stabilized, typically after the age of 18
  • Hormonal imbalances can influence Gynecomastia, so candidates should have stable hormonal levels before considering the procedure

Male Breast Reduction Procedure and Recovery

To begin, Dr. Koonce creates small incisions strategically placed around the areola or in inconspicuous areas of the chest. Through these incisions, excess fat is removed using liposuction techniques, and any excess glandular tissue is excised to achieve a flatter and more contoured chest appearance. In some cases, Dr. Koonce may also need to reposition the nipples for a natural and symmetrical result. The incisions are then meticulously closed with sutures.

Most patients can resume their daily activities within a few days, but full recovery may take several weeks. As with any surgical procedure, there may be some scarring, but Dr. Koonce will place incisions discreetly. Most patients are delighted with their enhanced chest contour and improved self-confidence after recovery.

Immediately after the surgery, patients may experience swelling, bruising, and mild discomfort around the chest area. Dr. Koonce may prescribe pain medication to manage any post-operative discomfort. It is essential to follow Dr. Koonce’s post-operative care instructions, including:

  • Wearing a compression garment to support healing and reduce swelling
  • Avoiding strenuous physical activities and heavy lifting for a few weeks to allow for proper healing
  • Attending follow-up appointments to monitor the healing progress and ensure optimal results

FAQ: Male Breast Reduction

Will the procedure leave noticeable scars?

While some scarring is inevitable, Dr. Koonce will place incisions strategically to minimize their visibility. Scars typically fade over time.

Is the procedure painful?

Male breast reduction is performed under general anesthesia, so patients will not feel any pain during the surgery. Mild discomfort and swelling may be experienced during recovery, but pain medication can be prescribed to manage any post-operative discomfort.

Will the results be permanent?

With proper post-operative care and stable weight, the results of Male breast reduction can be long-lasting.

Are there any risks or complications associated with the procedure?

As with any surgery, there are potential risks and complications, including infection, bleeding, scarring, and changes in nipple sensation. However, these risks are minimized when a skilled and experienced plastic surgeon, such as Dr. Koonce, performs the procedure.

Can I combine Male breast reduction with other procedures?

In some cases, Male breast reduction can be combined with other body contouring procedures to achieve comprehensive results. This can be discussed during the consultation.

How soon can I see the final results?

The initial results will be visible once the swelling subsides, but the final results will become more evident as the healing process progresses over several weeks.

Can gynecomastia return after the procedure?

The chances of gynecomastia returning are minimal if the procedure is performed correctly and the patient maintains a stable weight. However, factors like hormonal imbalances or significant weight changes can affect the long-term results.

Will the surgery impact my nipple sensation?

In most cases, there is little to no impact on nipple sensation. Any temporary changes usually resolve as healing progresses.
