Gynecomastia surgery is more common than you might think

There are many reasons why some men develop breast tissue and need Male Breast Reduction or Chest Surgery.

Whether genetic, caused by medicine or disease, or, indeed, have no obvious cause at all, gynecomastia can strike at the heart of your masculinity. Man Boobs or Moobs can be corrected with chest contouring.

A number of surgical techniques can effectively correct this common problem, and Dr Hunt will thoroughly assess you before deciding which technique or techniques are most suitable for you. You can book your consultation here.

Post-surgery, the aim is a masculine chest with minimal gynecomastia scars or scarring.



Benefits of Gynaecomastia

The gynecomastia surgery can help you get a more masculine looking chest and get rid of the excess of tissue at the level of the breasts. There are multiple benefits associated with undergoing this procedure such as:

  • Masculine looking chest
  • Getting rid of the excess of skin and fat tissue
  • A boost of self-confidence

Dr Hunt explains the Benefits of Gynecomastia for Man Boobs


Recovery after Gynecomastia Surgery

The recovery period after male gynecomastia surgery can take up to two weeks post op. During this time, make sure to take the analgesic medication to alleviate the pain and discomfort.

It is best to avoid strenuous physical activities during the first two weeks after gynecomastia surgery and make sure to take time off from work to allow your body to heal. Here are more recommendations for the recovery period after gynecomastia surgery:

  • Avoid smoking and drinking alcohol for at least two weeks
  • Avoid steam rooms and saunas
  • Have a healthy and balanced diet
  • Avoid ample arms and upper body movements
  • Keep the incisions site clean and dry at all times
  • Keep your body hydrated

To avoid risks and complications that could occur during the recovery period make sure to follow Dr Hunt’s indications.

Should I have Gynecomastia?


Gynecomastia is a highly personal procedure, and the outcome will be different for everyone. That is why before you make any decisions you will have a consultation with Dr Hunt to discuss your needs and goals for the surgery.

During your first consultation, Dr Hunt will evaluate your general health and explain the recommended surgical procedure to achieve your goal, including the risks & potential complications that are a part of all surgeries and your recovery time. Photographs will be taken for your medical record and to allow Dr Hunt to fully plan your surgery.

A quote will be prepared for you that will include the surgical, anaesthetic, and hospital fees.

What's involved in Male Breast Surgery?


Gynecomastia is performed under a general anaesthetic, given by an anaesthetist, in an accredited hospital, so you are assured of the best care.Different surgical techniques are used depending on whether you have a glandular enlargement, excess fatty tissue, or excess skin. Liposuction alone may be effective, or surgical excision of breast tissue may be required. In some cases a combination of surgical excision and liposuction may be used.

Depending on the type of surgery performed a drain may be used to avoid blood collecting under your skin.When you wake up you will be wearing a compression garment.

When can I go home after Gyno Surgery?


You can usually return home on the same day as Gynecomastia surgery.When you go home you should limit your movements to around the house for 2 to 3 days. When you are discharged you will be given a prescription for pain medication, which will minimise your discomfort.

You should take only the pain medication prescribed, and eat before you take it or it might upset your stomach.

Eat lightly for 3 to 4 days after surgery and then resume your normal diet. Make sure you get plenty of fluids.

Will I have to return for post-operative care after Gynecomastia Surgery?


You will return to see Dr Hunt several days after your surgery
