Male Breast Reduction

Overview of the surgery:
Male breast reduction is a type of plastic surgery done for men with
gynecomastia, a condition of male breast overdevelopment. The procedure
removes fat and/or glandular tissue from the breasts and in extreme cases
removes excess skin, resulting in a chest that is flatter, firmer, and better
contoured. The surgery often involves liposuction as well as some
component of direct breast excision done through a semicircular incision
around the areola. In cases of skin excess, additional incisions will need to
be made for skin removal.
Operation Time:
Male breast reduction takes about 2 hours.
Type of Anesthesia use:
The procedure is done under local plus sedation or general anesthesia
Hospital/clinic stay:
1 night
Days to stay in Thailand:
7 days
Risks and Complications:
Infection, fluid accumulations, injury to the skin, rippling or bagginess of skin, and asymmetry.
Pigment changes (possibly permanent if exposed to the sun). Excessive scarring if tissue was cut away,
and need for a following procedure to remove addition tissue.
Recovery Period:
Patients are placed in a compression vest following surgery to minimize
fluid accumulation and facilitate skin retraction. This must be worn for
several weeks. There will be some bruising which will disappear over 1-2
weeks.
Preparation Prior To Surgery:
 Medical history assessment (any allergies, serious medical condition and all
medications taken both prescribed and non-prescribed), physical
examination, and laboratory tests will be performed during consultation.
 Avoid smoking   for about 3-4 weeks prior to surgery, as nicotine interferes
with circulation and will greatly affect healing process.
 Stop drinking alcohol, a week before the surgery and throughout your
recovery period.

 Taking any medications should be avoided such as hormones, anticoagulants,
anabolic steroids and supplements at least 4-6 weeks to prevent complicating
medical factors prior to surgery, and also avoid taking aspirin, anti-
inflammatory drugs and herbal supplements as they can increase bleeding.
