Male Breast Reduction In Thailand

Male breast reduction is a type of plastic surgery performed on males who have gynecomastia, a disorder characterized by excessive male breast development. The operation eliminates fat and/or glandular tissue from the breasts, as well as extra skin in extreme cases, leaving the chest flatter, firmer, and more contoured. Liposuction is frequently used in conjunction with direct breast excision via a semicircular incision around the areola. In cases of skin excess, more incisions will be required for skin excision.
Male breast reduction surgery typically lasts around 2 hours.
Type of anesthesia used:
The treatment is done under local plus sedation, or general anesthesia.
Hospital/clinic Stay: One night.
Duration of stay in Thailand: 7 days
Risks and complications:
Infection, fluid buildup, skin damage, rippling or bagginess, and asymmetry. Pigment changes (potentially permanent if exposed to sunlight). Excessive scarring if tissue was cut away, necessitating a subsequent treatment to remove additional tissue.
After surgery, patients are placed in a compression vest to reduce fluid collection and promote skin retraction. This needs to be worn for several weeks. There will be minor bruising, which will go within 1-2 weeks.
Preparation Before Surgery:

  • During consultation, a medical history evaluation (including allergies, major medical conditions, and prescriptions) will be conducted, along with a physical examination and laboratory tests.
  • Avoid smoking for 3-4 weeks before surgery to improve circulation and recovery.
  • Avoid alcohol for a week before surgery and during recovery. • Avoid medications like hormones, anticoagulants, anabolic steroids, and supplements for at least 4-6 weeks to prevent complications. • Avoid aspirin, anti-inflammatory drugs, and herbal supplements as they can cause bleeding.
