Male Breast Reduction: We've Got All the Answers to Your Questions

Whether it's in the locker room, at the beach or during intimate moments with a partner, many men are embarrassed by their overdeveloped chest. This common issue is actually a medical condition known as gynecomastia. At the Centre de Chirurgie Plastique de l’Île-des-Soeurs, our team of surgeons has a simple and effective solution for clients with gynecomastia: male breast reduction surgery. Keep reading to find out more about this procedure, which is available at our modern medical centre located steps away from Montreal.

What happens during male breast reduction surgery?
During the procedure, which will take place under local or general anesthetic, the surgeon will make small incisions in the lower portion of both areolas. He or she will then remove any excess fat, glandular tissue and skin and correct the size of your nipple, if necessary.

How long does the procedure last?
At the Centre de Chirurgie Plastique de l’Île-des-Soeurs, our male breast reduction procedures generally take less than two hours to complete.

What does the recovery process look like for male breast reduction surgery?

After the surgery, you'll have to wear a protective compression garment around your chest for at least a few weeks. This will help minimize any swelling or bruising in the aftermath of your procedure. Most men are usually able to return to their regular activities less than a month after the operation. We recommend avoiding direct sunlight for a few months to facilitate the healing process.

Is there a risk of complications?

Every surgery carries risk. In the case of a breast reduction procedure, the following complications could occur:

  • Difficulty healing
  • Excessive swelling
  • Infection
  • Loss of nipple sensitivity 
  • Bleeding
  • Asymmetrical breasts
  • Fluid buildup
