Male Breast Reduction Procedure
Male breast reduction typically takes 1 to 1.5 hours and is almost always performed under general anesthesia. Dr. Weinberg is a well-known and experienced gynecomastia surgeon, and only board certified anesthetists assist him in this surgery. He usually performs male breast reduction at his private fully-accredited surgical facility. This procedure involves a reduction of the breast tissue using liposuction, and/or the surgical removal of excess fat and glandular tissue.
As with all surgical procedures, there are possible complications that can occur with male breast reduction. Potential complications specific to your surgery will be discussed in detail at your consultation. For a discussion of general risks of surgery, review Dr. Weinberg's Your First Visit page.
Male Breast Reduction Cost & Related Procedures
Sometimes a male breast reduction is combined with liposuction to reduce the costs of having 2 procedures separately. For patients 18 years of age or under, the procedure may be covered by OHIP. In this case, the surgery will be performed at Trillium Health Centre where Dr. Weinberg serves as Division Head of Plastic Surgery.
After Your Procedure
After a male breast reduction, patients are usually back to work within 3 to 7 days and can return to exercise and other strenuous activities in about 2 to 3 weeks. Any swelling and bruising will likely resolve over the next 3 to 6 months. The results of a male breast reduction are usually permanent, and many patients report that they are so pleased with the procedure, they wish they had considered it sooner.
