Although man boob surgery does leave a scar, many men are willing to accept it in exchange for the ability to feel more confident and attractive. Men who undergo the procedure also report feeling more open in sexual relationships and not feeling covered up as much. In addition, men who have undergone this procedure often put considerable effort into maintaining the results.

Male breast reduction

Male breast reduction surgery is typically performed as an outpatient procedure under general anesthesia or IV sedation. The doctor makes small incisions around the areola and underarm to remove excess fat and glandular tissue from the chest. The incisions are closed with bandages. The recovery time for male breast reduction surgery is about one week. The patient may experience some discomfort and bruise after the procedure.

Male breast reduction surgery is designed to correct gynecomastia and improve the patient’s self-confidence. The procedure is most effective in patients who are not excessively overweight. Overweight patients are often advised to try traditional weight-loss methods before undergoing male breast reduction surgery. Smokers and drinkers should also avoid this surgery.

The recovery time for male breast reduction surgery can vary depending on the surgical technique used. After surgery, patients should avoid strenuous activity for at least one week. A compression vest will help the skin retract and prevent fluid from collecting during this time. Additionally, they can expect some bruising and swelling, but the pain is often controlled with prescription pain medication.


Gynecomastia, or enlarged male breast tissue, is a common condition that can lead to self-consciousness and embarrassment. Surgical correction can restore the chest to a more masculine size and minimize the excess skin. Although there are non-surgical treatments available, sometimes surgery is the only option. In this case, the surgeon will use liposuction to remove excess fat and tissue in the chest. This will leave a minimal scar.

After the procedure, the patient will be put on a compression garment to help prevent swelling and keep the incisions clean while they heal. During the first few weeks, a patient will experience some discomfort. However, this is temporary and should be easily alleviated with over-the-counter pain medication. Most men can return to work after one to two weeks. Patients can also engage in light exercise four weeks after the procedure but should avoid heavy exercise for eight weeks.

Techniques of man boob surgery can address other concerns as well. The surgeon may remove excess skin, reposition the nipples, and reduce areolas during surgery. The incisional scar will be small and discrete, depending on the surgeon’s preference. These techniques can correct asymmetry and improve the overall look of the chest.

Recovery time

The recovery time for man boob surgery can be long or short, depending on your specific needs. Most patients can expect to experience discomfort after the surgery, such as tightness, pain, or swelling around the chest. However, the pain is usually minimal and can be treated with prescribed medication and Tylenol. Other side effects may include numbness, nausea, or decreased feeling from the anesthesia. After surgery, patients should wear a compression garment to minimize swelling. Patients should also drink plenty of water to prevent dehydration.

During recovery, patients should avoid taking nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, such as ibuprofen and aspirin. These medicines may interfere with the body’s blood clotting system, increasing the risk of complications. They should also avoid using vitamin E or multivitamin tablets. In addition, they should avoid alcohol and smoking for at least 72 hours following the surgery. They should also limit their intake of caffeine and other stimulants. Drinking 64 ounces of water every day is also recommended.

Most patients begin to feel more normal within two weeks. They should not engage in vigorous exercise but can resume moderate after the second week. Patients should wear a compression garment throughout the day to minimize swelling. Patients should avoid bending over, bending forward, or lying flat on their backs. They should also avoid sitting for long periods and remain upright for the first few weeks.


The cost of man boob surgery can vary greatly. The amount you pay depends on how much fat is removed and whether or not the surgeon needs to use sculpting techniques to remove it. Other expenses may also factor in. The price can be as low as 65,000 rupees for a small operation but significantly higher for more invasive procedures.

Before having gynecomastia surgery, you should consult a doctor for an estimate. The doctor will assess your condition and may even recommend tests to determine how much fat needs to be removed. The surgeon will also provide you with an estimate of how much it will cost to undergo surgery.

The cost of man boob surgery differs depending on where you choose to have it done. In London and the UK, the cost is higher.
