Male Breast Reduction Surgery

Male Breast Reduction Surgery at The Nova Clinic

Male breast reduction surgery is an increasingly common procedure which has the potential to significantly boost a man’s body confidence and self-esteem. In a world in which society expects men to have firm, masculine chests like movie stars, fatty tissue in the breast area can be a cause of great anxiety and embarrassment.

Often referred to as “man boobs”, gynecomastia is a condition which results in swelling in one or both breasts. Causes can include lack of exercise and poor diet, but there are also hormonal factors that no amount of healthy living can change. Males of all ages, even small children, can develop gynecomastia as a result of hormonal imbalances.

When more oestrogen is produced and there is not enough testosterone to balance it out, the chest naturally takes on a more feminine appearance. Although this is not considered to be a serious medical problem, it can be extremely tough to live with.

What to expect during the consultation

Your surgeon will perform a general health check to ensure you are fit and well for the procedure. Furthermore, he will check if you or any immediate family members have any health issues we should be aware of. He will also ask what kind of results you are looking to achieve so we can ensure that you leave the clinic with the chest you have always wanted.

The full details of the procedure will be explained and you will have the opportunity to ask any questions so you’ll know exactly what to expect on the day. The methods used will vary depending on the cause of your gynecomastia, so your surgeon will discuss all the options with you during the consultation.

What to Expect on the Day of Your Surgery

Male breast surgery is usually performed under local anaesthetic. It is a relatively short procedure so you should not have to stay overnight, but you may want to bring a friend or family member with you to help you get home.

In the case of liposuction alone, small incisions will be made in the flesh, into which a thin hollow tube will be inserted to loosen fat. The fat will then be removed from the breast area using a small vacuum.

If the cause of the gynecomastia is hormonal, glandular breast tissue and excess skin must also be removed, which may require the nipple to be repositioned. Sometimes, both methods will be used.

What to expect after your surgery

The effects of male breast reduction surgery are immediate, so you should be able to see results straight away, but you should expect swelling and tenderness which may make it difficult for you to fully appreciate your new chest at first. We recommend a day’s bed rest and pain medication for a few days after the surgery, but you should be able to return to your normal routine in a few days.

What is Breast Reduction?

Breast Reduction or reduction mammoplasty is a body contouring procedure that aims to reduce, adjust or bring the breasts of patients to an aesthetically pleasant symmetry. It’s an invasive procedure that involves making incisions on the side or below the breasts in order to make way for the removal of excess fat, meat and skin to align everything together. Ultimately, the goal of every surgeon performing breast reduction surgery in Dubai is to bring about the best aesthetically appealing body image possible.

Why Breast Reduction?

If you think your body image can improve by having your breast size reduced or the uneven shape of your breasts adjusted, breast reduction in Dubai is your solution. In addition to its cosmetic benefits, breast reduction is also done for medical reasons that include shoulder, neck and back pain arising due to large breasts.

Is Breast Reduction permanent?

Since it’s an invasive procedure that involves removing fat from behind the breasts and adjusting the nipple in accordance with the new shape and symmetry, it’s safe to say breast reduction is a permanent procedure.

How much does Breast Reduction Cost?

Everyone has a different body that has its own complications and uniqueness. Therefore, it’s hard to determine a global standard to judge how difficult a procedure will be for a specific patient. That’s why it’s best for a surgeon to examine you before you can have a general idea about the cost and the duration of your surgery.

Who is the Ideal Candidate for Breast Reduction?

Although everyone can get an appointment with famous surgeons offering the reputed breast reduction Dubai is popular for, there are characteristics that are preferred in a candidate. Anyone who isn’t pregnant or looking forward to being pregnant. Young adults are considered ideal due to the ability of their body to heal quickly while adjusting to the changing contours. Non-smokers are preferred as smoking can bring about devastating consequences in not just the surgery but during the recovery process as well.

What Should You Ask Your Surgeon?

Your questions for your surgeon should entail detailed and critical information about your case. Make sure to discuss everything related to your medical history and any ongoing problems you might have. Ask the doctor what they think about your decision about having your breasts reduced and how they will go about it.

Furthermore, you can ask your surgeon about the necessary precautions you should take before and after the surgery to ensure the best results. A surgeon performing breast reduction in Dubai will certainly have tons of experience and expertise regarding various cases.

What can you expect after Breast Reduction in Dubai?

Once you’re out of the operating room, you’ll undergo an examination to see how well the procedure has gone. In some cases, you might need to stay at the hospital for the night after the usual 2-3-hour duration of the surgery. Your first week will bring about pain as your chest will be bruised and swollen. To prevent infections and further swelling, a compression garment along with antibacterial medication will be prescribed.

Every procedure for breast reduction Dubai clinics are offering can vary in their costs and results. It’s recommended that you look for expertise and experience rather than cost-effective and stylish results.

This swelling can go on for a few weeks, during which time the pain will subside gradually. It’s crucial that you don’t engage in any strenuous activity to ensure no complication or damage comes to the wounds.
