Is there any downtime after Male Breast Reduction treatment?
Recovery time for this procedure will depend on the individual patient but is fairly minimal.
We usually advise that you take around a week off work following surgery as there will be bruising and swelling which may take a few days to subside. We also recommend you do not resume strenuous exercise for 4 weeks.
You will feel a little bruised and stiff for a few days but there is no restriction on movement. Any dressings can be removed in a couple of days or when they come loose, and stitches removed in a week. In the weeks after surgery, smoother skin will emerge on the chest and scars will start to heal.
Our expertise in scarring techniques along with our highly-experienced surgeons ensure a great result.

Male Breast Reduction, or Gynaecomastia Correction, is an extremely common procedure for men who wish to remove any excess, stubborn, unwanted chest fat. This straightforward procedure involves the use of liposuction to remove excess fat, tissue and loose skin to restore the appearance of a smooth, flat chest.
