Male Breast Reduction Recovery: Healing and Enjoying Your New Chest


Although gynecomastia, or enlarged male breast tissue, does not pose serious health risks to men, it can detract from a patient's appearance and diminish his confidence. If you are considering male breast reduction surgery, you may be concerned about what to expect after your procedure. Fortunately, Dr. Suzanne Yee can use the latest surgical techniques and provide guidance throughout every step of your male breast reduction recovery at her Little Rock, AR, practice to help you experience excellent results with short healing times. Contact our practice today to learn more about recovery from male breast reduction surgery.

Factors Affecting Recovery Times

The surgical techniques used during your male breast reduction procedure will have a significant impact on the healing process. For example, liposuction is often used to break up and remove unwanted deposits of breast fat. When Dr. Lee uses ultrasonic assisted liposuction to perform this step, patients usually heal more quickly. In some cases, Dr. Yee must modify and remove glandular tissue to flatten the chest during surgery, which can result in slightly longer healing times. Skin removal can also affect gynecomastia recovery. If overdeveloped tissue has stretched the chest skin, Dr. Yee may need to trim it for a smooth, natural appearance, which requires additional incisions.

General Recovery Timeline

While each patient is different, the typical recovery timeline for men undergoing gynecomastia correction surgery is:

  • The day of the procedure: A friend or family member will need to drive you home after surgery, and you should plan on resting for the remainder of the day. Your chest may be bruised, swollen, or tender during this time, and Dr. Yee can prescribe medication to help manage any discomfort.
  • Three to seven days after surgery: You should be able to return to desk work and driving with Dr. Yee's approval within the first week of recovery. However, you may need to return to our office for a follow-up appointment during this time so that Dr. Yee can inspect the surgical site and remove your stitches.
  • Two to three weeks after surgery: By this time, patients can typically resume low-impact physical activities, so long as they do not strain your pectoral muscles or pose harm to your chest.

The full results of your gynecomastia correction surgery should become apparent after several weeks.

Post-operative Instructions

After undergoing male breast reduction surgery, Dr. Yee may prescribe antibiotics, painkillers, or anti-inflammatory drugs to ensure your comfort and prevent any post-operative complications. In addition, she may also recommend that you wear a compression garment to keep your tissue in proper position during healing. By following Dr. Yee’s post-surgical directions as closely as possible, you can ensure a safe and successful recovery.
