What You Need to Know about Gynecomastia Correction
Regardless of the cause, having one or more unusually large breasts, known as gynecomastia, can lead to significant discomfort and self-consciousness in men. Corrective breast reduction surgery for male gynecomastia helps produce a firmer, flatter, and naturally contoured chest.
How Does Gynecomastia Correction Surgery Work?
Gynecomastia correction works by eliminating the excess fat, tissue, and skin contributing to the condition. Performed on an outpatient basis, this procedure requires the patient to be under general anesthesia, which is administered by an M.D. Though recovery time varies for each individual, many patients experience a gradual flattening of the chest over the course of several months. Typically, patients can resume normal activities within a few days.
