Male breast liposuction reduces fat around the male breast, sculpting it to a more firm, natural and proportionate breast with the body. The male breast reduction improves confidence and offers a more masculine physique allowing patients to wear tight clothing.
A very thin person, which still shows the appearance of big breast is not a good candidate for the male breast liposuction. These patients can have excess glandular tissue or real gynecomastia and will not benefit from a tumescent liposuction. These patients can benefit from a surgical procedure designed to extract the glandular tissue called gynecomastia.
The cosmetic surgeon injects without pain in the area of the skin to numb it and makes one or two small incisions of 1.5 mm en each side of the chest, then introduces a small microcannula performing a soft suction, to eliminate the fat excess.
The best candidates for male breast liposuction have firm, elastic skin with excess fat pockets in certain areas. You should be physically healthy, psychologically stable and realistic in your expectations. Age is not an important consideration; nonetheless, older patients can diminish their skin elasticity and cannot accomplish the same results as a younger patient that has more elastic skin.
Incisions closed by themselves in a period of 24-36 hours. A specialized garment is needed; post-op care indications will be given to you. Full recovery process is less than a week. It is recommended that exercise routine or activities that require physical efforts or stretching be avoided during 3 to 4 weeks. You can go back to work and household activities 3 to 4 days after surgery.
