    Preparation for Gynecomastia Surgery

    After making your choice and becoming surely determined to undergo the surgery, your surgeon will provide you with pre-operative information that covers everything you need to know and everything you need to do before your surgery. In addition, you may need to do the following:
    • Undergo medical examination and some laboratory tests.
    • Stop taking certain drugs (such as aspirin) or start taking new ones, if needed.
    • Quit smoking.

    Steps of Gynecomastia Surgery

    The procedure of gynecomastia surgery takes roughly 1.5 hours. In most cases, you will be required to spend a night in the hospital. The steps of the procedure include the following:

    1. Anesthesia

    Typically, gynecomastia surgery requires general anesthesia. In some circumstances, however, some surgeons may find it better to use local anesthesia with sedation.

    2. Incisions Making

    Your surgeon will make an incision around your nipple and either will remove extra fatty tissue with a scalpel (surgical knife), suck the tissue out with liposuction, or use a combination of both techniques. Furthermore, they may reposition your nipples if a lot of tissue needs to be removed.

    3. Incision Closure

    Finally, your surgeons will wrap your wounds with bandages and dressings.

    Recovery After Gynecomastia Surgery

    You should ask for someone to drive you home after the surgery. Also, you may need to invite someone to assist you for a day or two. The recovery process involves the following:
    • Most men need 1 month to recover completely after the procedure. Therefore, it is important to take a few days off work right after surgery to help your body recover without any obstacles.
    • For a few weeks after surgery, you must wear elastic and loose garments during the day and night.
    • For the first three weeks following surgery, avoid intense activity and heavy lifting. Usually, you will need around 6 weeks to be able to resume your daily activities.
    • Once you can place a car seatbelt around your chest without pain, you can drive again without problems, but this, however, might take several weeks following the procedure.
    • The results of your surgery might take up to 6 months to appear.

    Frequently Asked Questions

    Yes, you can get rid of gynecomastia. Some people may find that male breast growth fades on its own as their hormone levels return to normal, while others may have to try alternative treatments, such as testosterone replacement therapy (TRT), medications, or surgery.

    The outer shape of gynecomastia can vary from person to person. It may appear as a hard lump of tissue around the nipple, or it may cause the breast to swell to a larger size. If you notice any of these symptoms in one or both breasts, you should consult your doctor.

    Gynecomastia results from excess breast tissue that cannot be reduced through exercise alone. But if a man’s breast growth is caused originally from excess fat — known as pseudo-gynecomastia — exercise may be helpful.

    Removing a large amount of fatty tissue from the breasts can lead to weight loss. However, the surgery is not intended to lose weight.

    The results of the surgery appear immediately after surgery. However, the patient must wait for some time until swelling subsides and the bruising disappears.
