If you have gynecomastia, it can affect your self-esteem and cause embarrassment. You may not feel comfortable removing your shirt in social or even intimate situations because of this condition. Fortunately, Dr. Scott Greenberg offers gynecomastia surgery to remove unwanted tissues from the body. But how long does it take to recover from a male breast reduction surgery?
Gynecomastia is the medical term for enlarged male breasts. This condition occurs when men experience an increase in estrogen levels, which causes their chests to develop as women’s do. Generally, this happens during puberty or due to hormone imbalances later in life and causes a more round chest with larger breast tissue than usual because it developed similarly as female bodies would have developed during adolescence.
While some teenage boys may also experience gynecomastia at times of hormonal imbalance, many male adults can be affected by conditions such as obesity that cause them to gain weight around their nipples. Men with male breasts or gynecomastia can experience embarrassment and discomfort when exercising. Many men undergo breast reduction surgeries to remove the glandular tissue that causes enlarged chests to remedy this issue.
After your male breast reduction surgery, you may need one week of recovery time before returning to work. However, if your job involves manual labor (like lifting heavy objects), then you’ll likely require more time off work to ensure a full recovery.
What are the Benefits of Gynecomastia Surgery?
Men who get male breast reduction surgery feel better about how they look and are much more willing to reveal their physiques. They may also enjoy a masculine appearance, less back pain, and improved mobility.
