In the theatre, your skin will be cleaned with iodine and you will receive an injection of local anaesthetic, after which several small (2-3mm) incisions will be made in the skin. A solution containing an anaesthetic and a substance to help prevent bruising will then be injected into the fat through these incisions.
Once the area is fully numbed, the fat is removed using a fine needle, called a cannula, which is attached by tubing to a strong suction machine.
You will go home once the effects of your anaesthetic or sedation have worn off. Most patients leave after about one hour to spend the rest of their recovery at home.
You can expect your recovery to be rapid but there will be some swelling and bruising of the treated area. You can help reduce this by wearing a firm support garment for at least three days or until the fluid drainage stops.
The worst of the swelling will subside in the first few weeks, however it may be as much as two months before the full effect of the male breast reduction surgery is apparent.
Male breast reduction is an extremely safe procedure and most patients are extremely satisfied. However, as with all surgical procedures complications sometimes occur.

I had neck/jaw Lipo on Friday evening 16/10/15 after wanting it done since I was 16 as I have never had a jaw line or definition in my neck as always had a slope.The team have been absolutely fantastic. First of all arranging it on a Friday evening so I could have longer to recover over the weekend so I can go back to work on Monday. The communication from everyone has been fantastic. The procedure was great (If you can say great about a tube sucking out fat from your neck!). But seriously made me feel such at ease, comfortable and felt in such safe hands. The surgeon was so meticulous and careful which was great as the neck and jaw are visible to all. I was given a number of one of the surgeons whom I could contact if I had any queries or problems and also Michelle's contact details. This I must say has been extremely helpful. Seriously would not get that kind of patient care and attention anywhere I know and from anywhere I know of people have gone to. Great price, great customer care and attention and great professional and qualified team. Thank you to you all, it really means so much to me, its a massive life changer for me and I have all of you to thank for that! :)

Lipo London provide nothing short of an excelling service and keep you informed throughout the whole process. Cosmetic surgery is something that makes us all nervous and full of questions, but their team took the time to explain everything through and maintain my confidence.
I recommend Lipo London to my friends, colleagues and all of you reading this!
