What the Male Breast Reduction Surgery Involves

The male breast reduction surgery does tend to be quite a simple one with relatively few complications which could take place. The surgery tends to last around 1 to 3 hours depending on the severity of your condition and the amount of fat and breast tissue that needs removing. Most men prefer to stay in hospital for at least 1 night although it for some men it can possible for you to leave hospital within 24 hours of your surgery. 

Male Breast Reduction and Liposuction

The most popular way of doing the breast reduction surgery is by using liposuction. Liposuction is used when the patient is under general anaesthetic and the procedure will then remove all of the unwanted fatty tissue surrounding the breasts. Liposuction is the process where small tubes which are often metal are administered into the breasts through small incisions that have been made either around the nipple or the base of the breast. These incisions will vary from patient to patient as you will have previously discussed with your surgeon where you want the incision scars to be and what part of the breast needs the most fatty tissue removing from it.

The cuts around the breast where the incisions were made will then be stitched together will small dissolvable stitches will mean that you do not need them to be manually removed after the surgery. When the incisions are stitched together the surgeon will do use to make sure your breasts look more contoured, firmer and more masculine. In some cases it is also required to removes excess skin from the breasts to improve the look of them even more; this tends to be men who have lost a lot of weight prior to the surgery.
