During surgery

The plastic surgeon will typically make an incision around the nipple or under the arm, and then remove excess breast tissue, fat, and skin as needed. The procedure may be performed under local or general anesthesia, depending on the extent of the surgery and the preferences of the patient and surgeon.

After surgery

Patients may experience swelling, bruising, and discomfort, which can be managed with pain medication and compression garments. Recovery time will vary depending on the extent of the surgery, but most patients can return to work and light activities within a week or two, with more strenuous activities and exercise being gradually resumed over several weeks.

It's important to choose a board-certified plastic surgeon who has experience performing gynecomastia surgery to ensure the best possible results and minimize the risk of complications. Patients should also have realistic expectations about the outcome of the surgery and be prepared to follow post-operative care instructions carefully to ensure proper healing and optimal results.
