Contour Your Chest With Male Breast Reduction
Dr. Rifai’s male breast reduction procedure, known as gynecomastia, can reduce the size of your chest by removing excess tissue and fat. This procedure ensures a quick recovery and minimal scarring.
Male Breast Reduction- Overview
During a male breast reduction, Dr. Rifai makes a small, inconspicuous incision that is hidden either on the edge of areola or in the underarm. The excess glandular tissue is removed and liposuction can be used to provide more contour and definition. This procedure typically takes 1-2 hours.
Male Breast Reduction- Recovery
After the breast reduction procedure, you may experience some discomfort, which is easily controlled with medication. You will be provided with a pressure garment to help control swelling and bruising. This should be worn for approximately 3 weeks. Any swelling will likely reduce within a few weeks following the procedure. You can resume heavy lifting and strenuous activities after 6 weeks.
Dr. Rifai has over 25 years of experience and can answer any of the questions you have about male breast reduction during your consultation.
