What Is Male Breast Reduction Surgery?
The term gynecomastia comes from Greek and refers to a condition wherein men develop large, female-like breasts. Gynecomastia is a medical condition that can be caused by a number of reasons, including severe weight gain, hormone imbalances, and illnesses. Men who suffer from enlarged breasts can succumb to depression, emotional distress, and reduced self-esteem. At New Jersey Plastic Surgery®, we offer male breast reduction surgery to help men feel like themselves again.
Benefits of a Male Breast Reduction Surgery
The vast majority of our clients are extremely satisfied with the gynecomastia surgery. Following the procedure, you’ll enjoy a more masculine, slim, robust chest, which will help you feel a greater sense of self-worth, self-esteem and confidence in your appearance. Many of our patients have reported that they feel younger, are very satisfied with their appearance, and are now enjoying a new lease on life. Furthermore, gynecomastia surgery will help ensure that your clothes fit like they should and that you can enjoy swimming or bathing without being subject to unwanted harassment.
Getting Back to Normal After Male Breast Reduction Surgery
It’s important to understand that you may feel some discomfort or sensitivity following your male breast reduction surgery. Strong discomfort can be controlled with the use of pain medication. It is important to give your body a chance to rest as it heals. The doctor will explain how to wear a pressure dressing that will help reduce swelling. It’s important to avoid certain activities following your surgery, but light exercise like walking is okay. Depending on the kind of work you do, you can usually return to work within a few days of your procedure. It’s also important to avoid raising your arms until the recovery period is over and to avoid direct sunlight on your incisions to minimize any scarring.
