Male Breast Surgery
About the Procedure 

Gynecomastia surgery is performed under twilight or general anesthesia. Excessive breast tissue and fat are removed as well as skin from around the areola. A small incision, less than a half-inch in length, is made around the areola. An liposuction cannula is then inserted into the incision. Using the cannula, the surgeon liquefies the layers of fat beneath the skin and suctions it away. In some cases where large amounts of fat have been removed, excess skin may have to be removed to readjust to the new breast contour, and the areola can be made smaller as well. In some cases, it also may be necessary to cut out excess glandular tissue in addition to the liposuction.

Recovery from this procedure is about one week. Sometimes drain tubes are used. A compression garment is worn for 6 weeks, and full exercise may be resumed by 6 weeks.
