Most people don’t realize the importance of pre-surgery preparation. And being well-prepared for the surgery, mentally and physically, can significantly improve the outcome. So, here we are mentioning four tips to prepare you better for male breast reduction surgery.

Tip 1: Set Expectations from Male Breast Reduction Surgery

Male breast reduction surgery involves the removal of excess fat and glandular tissues from the chest region. While undergoing the surgery, your goal may be only to remove the excess tissues. But you also have the opportunity to address other aesthetic concerns, such as repositioning of nipples, removal of excess skin, and reducing the areola size and nipples.

You can choose to combine gynecomastia surgery along with other treatments to get the desired shape and contour of the chest. As liposuction will be used to remove the fat tissues from the chest region, you can also opt for abdominal liposuction to get better contours along with a reduction mammaplasty.

Tip 2: Choose the Right Plastic Surgeon for Treatment

To ensure the success of male breast reduction surgery, it is critical to choose the best plastic surgeon. And while you are choosing the surgeon, take the following points into consideration-

  • The surgeon’s qualifications and board certifications
  • The surgeon’s specialty in male breast reduction surgery and the number of surgeries he/she has performed over the years.
  • Before and after photos of previous gynecomastia surgeries performed by the doctor.
  • The surgeon’s communication skills and clarity about the potential risks & complications.

A good doctor will also provide you with clear instructions to prepare you for the surgery beforehand.

Tip 3: Make Necessary Changes to Your Diet & Lifestyle

Gynecomastia is usually related to dietary habits and lifestyle choices. The foods, supplements, or medications you use on a regular basis can be the cause of breast enlargement. Thus, it is crucial that you give up the foods and supplements causing the problems and get alternative medicines from the doctor.

You will also have to make additional changes in your lifestyle to improve your overall health along with your healing abilities before the surgery. The dietary and lifestyle modifications needed are-

  • Eat fruits and vegetables
  • Reduce sugar consumption
  • Limit alcohol intake
  • Stop taking hormonal supplements, steroids, and other recreational drugs
  • Stop smoking entirely

These pre-surgery tips will help you adopt a better lifestyle and improve the outcomes.

Tip 4: Prepare for Recovery

The recovery part comes after the surgery but it is important to make the necessary preparations beforehand. After the surgery, you are likely to need help for some days. Therefore, you should ask your friends and family members to stay with you and help with things around the house.

You will also need help with the following-

  • Being driven to and from the hospital
  • Moving around the house
  • Grocery shopping
  • Laundry
  • Washing dishes

Besides house chores, it will also be better if you rearrange your room to make things easily accessible. It can include small things like putting a bedside table and keeping your medicines and bandages in the drawer so that you don’t have to ask someone else to do it for you.

FAQs around Gynecomastia

No. There are no medicines approved by the Food & Drug Administration (FDA) for the treatment of gynecomastia. Still, there are some medicines available in the market, such as Tamoxifen. It is advisable that you should not take the medicine without the doctor’s prescription.

No. Surgery is a permanent solution for gynecomastia as it removes the glandular tissues entirely. Therefore, there are no chances that the breasts will grow again. Still, that doesn’t mean that you can’t accumulate chest fat that will again give you the appearance of man boobs.

Yes. There will be minor scars as the glandular tissues are excised through an incision. However, the scar will heal over time and completely disappear within 4-6 months of having the surgery. Moreover, the incision is made in the areola, which is why it won’t be clearly visible.
