Male Breast Reduction With Tissue Removal

In cases of severe gynecomastia, tissue extraction may be necessary to achieve optimal results. Individuals with sagging skin around their breasts are considered suitable candidates for tissue extraction surgery.
The tissue extraction medical technique is commonly conducted in the periphery of the areola, referred to as a periareolar incision, or by utilizing the natural creases of the chest. Similar to liposuction, the tissue extraction medical technique normally has a relatively quick recovery time. However, there is typically swelling and tenderness at the incision site. The majority of people believe they can return to work within a few weeks following a surgical operation.

The Male Breast Reduction operation aims to have a permanent effect, but maintaining a healthy lifestyle is crucial to prevent a recurrence of gynecomastia. If you are considering exploring your options for gynecomastia treatment or wish to schedule a meeting, please contact us.

Preoperative Preparation:

During the consultation, a comprehensive evaluation will be conducted, which includes assessing the patient’s medical history (including allergies, major medical conditions, and all medications taken, both prescribed and non-prescribed), performing a physical examination, and conducting laboratory testing.
It is advisable to abstain from smoking for around 3-4 weeks before undergoing surgery, as nicotine hinders blood flow and significantly impacts the healing process.
Abstain from consuming alcohol starting one week prior to the surgery and continue to refrain from doing so during your whole healing phase.
Avoidance of pharmaceuticals, including hormones, anticoagulants, anabolic steroids, and supplements, for a minimum of 4-6 weeks prior to surgery is recommended to prevent potential medical complications. Additionally, refrain from taking aspirin, anti-inflammatory drugs, and herbal supplements, as these can contribute to increased bleeding.
