Male Breast Reduction San Francisco
Performed by The Maas Clinic
The term gynecomastia originates from the Greek word for “women-like breasts.”
Gynecomastia is performed by eliminating fatty or glandular tissue from the chest, which improves the shape and makes it look more firm. Some patients may also elect to have a tummy tuck or liposuction to improve the results.
Male breast reduction surgery is performed at an outpatient surgical procedure, and there are several different treatment options depending on your particular case. Typically it takes one to two hours.
Some patient have reported numbness in areas treated, which can last anywhere from several months to a year. Moderate discomfort, bruising and swelling for the first few days is common, and a compression garment must be worn for up between four and six weeks. Most patients typically go back to work in a week to ten days, and return to normal activity within a month.
