Benefits of Male Breast Reduction Surgery

Many patients report that their clothes fit better, they are able to wear a tank top or beachwear again, and that they stop receiving unwelcome harassment from others.
Getting Back to Normal After Male Breast Reduction Surgery
Some discomfort or tenderness is common following male breast reduction surgery. You can address any pain or discomfort with medication and adequate rest. Your doctor may also recommend that you wear a pressure dressing to reduce swelling.
There are some activities you must avoid following your procedure, but more gentle activities may be resumed, such as walking. You may also return to work a few days after surgery. In addition to these precautions, you are advised to avoid raising your arms for some time and avoid direct sunlight to reduce scarring.
