What is Gynecomastia Surgery?

Gynecomastia surgery is a cosmetic procedure that’s performed on men who have excess breast tissue. This surgery is typically performed with the following steps:

  1. Your plastic surgeon manually removes glandular breast tissue from your chest, and;
  2. Excess fat will be liposuctioned in order to show off your new results.

Additionally, your plastic surgeon may reposition your chest muscles to help create a more masculine appearance.

Most patients can expect to take at least one week off to recover, with final results visible about four to six weeks after the procedure. Keep in mind that you’ll need to maintain a healthy diet and exercise regimen to prevent gaining fat in the chest area.
