A disorder in men in which the size of the breasts increases to quite a great extent is called gynecomastia. A male breast reduction is a cosmetic surgery which is used to reduce the size of the male breasts. It is kind of a mastectomy in which the breast is partially or wholly removed, which is called subcutaneous mastectomy. With this treatment, the enlarged breasts in male are removed to give to well, contoured shape to the male body by removing the extra fat.
An incision is done around the area of the breast or the crease of the male chest. Inverted T is one method to reduce the size of male breasts in which the areola is trimmed. A cut above and below the breast is the double incision method which is the most common procedure. The extra tissue from the breasts is removed and then it is sutured. A keyhole incision is also done by the surgeons.
The recovery for this is almost like a liposuction. There is no pain as such post surgery. A one week rest is recommended by the surgeons. Swelling goes away in two weeks, slowly and gradually. One is completely recovered after few weeks. Patients can resume their light workout and exercises after two weeks.
