Male Breasts are not simply the product of weight gain; they are a combination of genetics and hormonal imbalances. The best candidates for male reduction surgery are men who are in good physical health and have realistic expectations for surgery. The procedure for make breast reduction will vary depending on the amount of tissue that will be removed and whether the enlargement is caused by fatty deposits or by glandular tissue or a combination of both. Dr. Wali will discuss all options of removal during your one on one consultation. Many men only need liposuction to achieve their desired result but a combination approach involving both liposuction and the removal of glandular tissue is often necessary. The procedure is performed under anesthetic which is administered prior to surgery. Dr. Wali begins by creating tiny incisions that are designed to be hidden by the sculpted contours of the chest. For cases in which only fat is being removed he will insert a thin cannula through the incision and liposuction the targeting fatty areas surrounding the breast muscle. For cases in which he is removing both fatty tissue as well as glandular tissue he creates incisions around the natural curve of the nipple and removes the excess glandular tissue before finishing with liposculpture of the breast. Dr. Wali always finishes with a flat, sculpted masculine male breast. The final result is a firmer chest with more sculpted contours and stronger lines.
After surgery Dr. Wali is careful to apply dressing and bandages at the incision sites. A compression garment is suggested to keep swelling down and to encourage the contouring process during recovery. The length of recovery will depend on the degree of surgery and each individual’s response to the procedure. You should plan on taking it easy for the first week but most men report returning to normal daily activities in about a week. Although the results of breast reduction surgery are permanent weight gain will potentially affect the breast area by setting where the fat has been removed. However, glandular tissue will never return after removal.
