Breast reduction in men: the most important information

It is a type of plastic surgery used to help men who have breast tissue that is abnormally large in size and appearance. This may affect one or both of a man’s breasts. The plastic surgeon will remove excess tissue from the breast area, as well as any excess skin, as needed.

While liposuction is often used in male breast reduction surgery for patients with excess skin after weight loss, it’s important to remember that this surgery is not a replacement for weight loss itself, especially for men with weight-related breast enlargement.

Breast reduction surgery at Dr. Ahmed Abdel Gawad’s Center.

Male breast reduction surgery usually takes two to three hours, depending on your health condition, and you might need to stay in the hospital for up to one night to make sure everything is okay. Dr. Ahmed Abdel Gawad’s Center uses several techniques, but most procedures involve these common steps:

  • Make a small incision around the nipple area.
  • We can use liposuction to absorb any excess fatty tissue.
  • If there is a lot of loose skin (after severe weight loss, for example), we will remove the excess skin and then reposition the nipples.

After male breast reduction surgery

Things you can expect after breast reduction surgery:

  • It may take up to six months for the treated area to completely stabilize.
  • The results of surgery are often not visible until after the swelling has subsided.
  • The scar around the nipple is relatively small, but if a lot of loose skin and tissue is removed, the scar may be slightly larger and reduce over time.
