What complications are possible with male breast reduction surgery? And more to the point, if you elect the procedure, what’s the likelihood you’ll experience a problem or need revision surgery?
We are always glad to tell our NYC gynecomastia patients that male breast reduction surgery is very safe, and it should be the same way with just about any board certified plastic surgeon with a good reputation. The more experienced your plastic surgeon has specifically with gynecomastia, however, the better your chances are of being happy with your results as well as safe. After thirty years of working with men with enlarged breasts, our revision rate is near zero. Experience truly does pay off.
Here are the most common complications and the implications of each one.
You probably know that risks and complications are possibilities with any type of surgery. Fortunately, male breast reduction is not a very invasive operation. Surgery takes place outside major body cavities, meaning the operation itself and your recovery should be relatively smooth.
When you have your consultation appointment, ask your plastic surgeon about risks and complications and be sure you understand all the instructions the surgical team has for you. The best way to minimize the possibility of a post-surgical issue is to have full information and be ready to do your part in a speedy recovery.
