Male Breast Reduction FAQs

Who is a good candidate for male breast reduction?

Men in good health who have large breasts that are not caused by side effects from medication are good candidates for male breast reduction. You should have reached a stable weight and your breast development should have stabilized.

How do I prepare for the male breast reduction surgery?

There is really no specific preparation, but you should quit smoking prior to the procedure, as smoking can seriously impede the healing process. Dr. Harceaga will review your medications with you during your consultation, and may recommend stopping certain medications before your procedure.

How long does the procedure take?

Generally, male breast reduction takes 1-2 hours.

What happens in the operating room?

A small incision will be made toward your armpit, and a cannula is inserted under the skin to break up the fat, which is then suctioned off.  A compression bandage or garment will be placed in order to reduce the swelling.

How long is the recovery after male breast reduction?

Swelling will be present, but most patients return to work or school in 2-3 days. You can resume mild exercise in about 2 weeks, and full activity or exercise in about one month.

Is the procedure painful?

There will be some discomfort following the surgery, which can be managed with the pain medicine prescribed by Dr Harceaga. It should diminish after the first few days.

Are there any risks associated with male breast reduction?

As with all surgeries, there are some risks involved. These risks include bleeding, infection, swelling and blood clots, but they are rare. Our operating suite is state-of-the-art, and we do everything we can to minimise the risks associated with surgery. Most importantly, Dr Harceaga and his team have comprehensive protocols in place to prevent complications from occurring.
