Am I the right candidate for Male Breast Reduction in Toronto?
If you are above the age of 18 years old, not overweight, completed puberty and are emotionally and physically stable, then you may consider male breast reduction in Toronto. Many patients have extra tissue on their chest or sagging enlarged breasts, which may make you feel less confident with your shirt off.
What can I expect from a Male Breast Reduction surgery?
In case you are overweight, you are advised to attempt losing weight first because obesity also leads to the appearance of Gynecomastia. In order to undergo male breast reduction surgery, you should be near your ideal body weight or if you are overweight, no more than 30 pounds more than your ideal body weight. In case of obesity accompanied with fatty tissue in the area of the chest, you may want to combine this procedure with Liposuction to correct it.
Most Toronto patients find that the full results of their male breast reduction are visible in about six months. Dr. Plant finds that the overwhelming majority of male breast reduction patients are very pleased with the end results.
What is the recovery period from Male Breast Reduction surgery?
You must be prepared to spend a few days recovering from the surgery before you can return to your normal activities gradually. Dr. Plant will remove your stitches about a week after the procedure upon your follow-up visit at his Orillia or Toronto office to check on your recovery.
There may be some tenderness or discomfort in the area of the chest. Any initial pain can be controlled with oral medications prescribed by Dr. Plant. Some of the common side effects include swelling, bruising and some numbness due to the disruption of the nerve connections. These side effects remain the same whether you undergo Liposuction alone or excision surgery. Most fade within 7 days or so, but some numbness or swelling may continue for about 6 months.
