The role of surgery in gynaecomastia is to restore normal male breast contour, not to eliminate all breast tissue. Achieving optimal results involves eliminating excess breast tissue and performing peripheral contouring.
There are no major risks involved with this surgery. Minor problems like bruising, loss of sensation , redness in skin can occur which is temporary.
Male breast reductions are an effective way to reduce the size of the breast area and give a flattened shape to the chest. The results are seen immediately and are usually permanent . Patients are highly satisfied with the gynaecomastia surgery.
In majority of cases gynaecomastia is performed in local anaesthesia with iv sedation. In rare cases it can be performed under general anaesthesia. The decision regarding the type of anaesthesia is taken after discussion with the patient.
