Male Breast Reduction

Published by Dr. Kathy Rumer .

Excited to see the results of your male reduction mammaplasty? The key is patience. After your male reduction mammaplasty surgery, you will likely experience temporary swelling in the tissues of the chest as your body recovers from the surgery.

This temporary swelling may make it appear as though less tissue was removed than you were hoping for. However, if you remember to have patience, then you’ll be richly rewarded with the final results of the procedure once the swelling ameliorates.

Dr. Kathy Rumer, a board-certified plastic surgeon well-versed in male reduction mammaplasty, will offer recommendations on the best methods of keeping swelling down and making sure it reduces in a timely manner.

Post-operative care is an important aspect of male breast reduction. Without the proper care, the results of your procedure will not be optimal, and the required healing period may take longer than necessary. Thus, it’s always best to practice proper post-operative care.

Because anesthesia is involved with male breast reduction surgery, you’ll need to have a friend or family member drive you home afterwards. It’s best to arrange for this prior to the procedure. You may also need them to help you with tasks for one to two days, since your tissues will be weakened and still healing.

For more information regarding post-operative care directions for your male breast reduction, it’s best to arrange a consultation with a qualified medical professional who can answer all of your questions.
