A certain amount of breast reduction recovery time will be required, depending on which procedure you choose.

What is a Male Breast Reduction Procedure?

The term breast is most often used as a term for a part of the female body. However, when a man has excess fat over his pectoral muscles and wishes to have it removed, he would opt for a male breast reduction procedure called gynecomastia. There are a few reasons why a man might opt for this procedure. These days it is not as uncommon as you may think. Men are also concerned with how they look and they want to be at their best.

What Does the Procedure Entail?

A male breast reduction procedure is a type of plastic surgery similar to the female version. However, men will want a very different look afterwards. If the fat causes the areola to stretch, that can also be corrected during the surgery. The result is a more masculine shape to the upper chest.

Who Has Male Breast Reductions?

Men have gynecomastia for many reasons. Some of them are medical, including men who have breast cancer. But often the interest is based on a wish to look fitter and more masculine. When no other medical treatment works to reduce the fat in the upper chest, male breast reduction surgery is the best option. Most men who opt for a male breast reduction procedure are of average weight and build, but have disproportionately large breasts. They may not be like women’s breasts, but they are certainly not what men hope for either.

Male breast reduction procedures are relatively simple to perform, however it is still considered surgery and does involve quite a bit of time to recover once the surgery is completed. In the end, it’s a very personal decision to have a male breast reduction procedure and it is best discussed with an experienced surgeon.
