Male breast plastic surgery is performed for gynecomastia, i.e. excessively enlarged breast glands. Surgical removal of the breast glands takes approximately one to two hours. It is usually performed under general anaesthesia. The client is hospitalized for only one day. Absorbable suture material is used. There is no need to remove stitches. Bruising and swelling will disappear within two weeks. The client wears a special compression sleeve for six to eight weeks after the procedure. A fine scar will remain after the surgery. The effect of male breast reduction is permanent if a healthy lifestyle is followed.
