Gynecomastia surgery refers to the cosmetic surgery that reduce and flatten breast size in men. This procedure helps those with gynecomastia, which is enlarged male breast tissue, otherwise known as “man boobs.”

The male breast consists of glandular tissue and fatty tissue. The excessive growth of this tissue can result in enlarged breasts in males, which may be embarrassing for those who experience this enlargement.

What can I expect from Gynecomastia surgery?

This procedure usually takes about forty-five minutes to two hours. Because this procedure is done at an outpatient facility, patients can expect to return home after the procedure. Patients can expect to return to work after one to two days, depending on the strenuousness of the patient’s job. Healing garments will have to be worn for one to two weeks following the procedure to optimize the healing process and the results of the procedure. These garments can be easily hidden underneath clothing, so patients can subtly return to work after the procedure.

Swelling and bruising can be expected following the procedure but will subside within a few weeks to reveal your new and improved chest. Our Chicago Gynecomastia surgeons utilize the best medical techniques and methods, so you’ll be back to work and the gym with confidence in no time.

Your results will last a long time, but a healthy diet and exercise routine will help prolong your chest results and help optimize a masculinized chest appearance!
