Gynecomastia, also known as male breast reduction, is never needed by physical health. Patients prefer this surgery if they are uncomfortable with the look of their breasts. Gynecomastia surgery is the only solution to that problem. The best candidates for this surgery are healthy men with elastic skin. Overweight men should try to lose weight prior to gynecomastia surgery. Other than excessive weight, consuming alcohol and tobacco products harms the process. The surgery takes approximately 2 hours and generally operated under general anesthesia. It involves an incision through the breast area to remove the fat. Sometimes liposuction is applied to the area if needed. After the surgery, patients are observed to feel slight discomfort, bruising and swelling which can be minimized by using pressured garment for a week or two. Most patients get back to their daily routines within the first month after the procedure.
