Surgery for gynecomastia is not an uncommon procedure. Male breast reduction surgery takes 1-2 hours and is performed in an out-patient surgical facility under general anesthesia. Gynecomastia surgery can sometimes be performed by using only liposuction. However many patients require an additional incision made around their areola to remove all of the excess breast tissue.
"Have had a wonderful experience from the first appointment all the way through from the office staff to Dr. Izquierdo. I feel wonderful and love my new look!"
Patients will wear a surgical compression vest post operatively for several weeks. Pain is relieved with pain medication. Patients are seen 2-3 days after surgery and followed closely for several weeks to check on recovery and healing. Patients can be back to work in typically 7-10 days, but are to avoid vigorous activities for 4-6 weeks. Patients may slowly return to regular activities between the 3rd and 4th week post operatively
