Gynecomastia (Male Breast Reduction) in Washington, DC
A gynecomastia is a surgical procedure that removes excess fat and glandular tissue to restore a flatter, firmer and more masculine contour to the chest.
The outpatient procedure is performed using local anesthesia and sedation, with a small incision within the natural creases of the chest.
Most patients return to usual activities within one week. Many patients choose to have surgery on a Wednesday and return to work on Monday with ibuprofen for mild discomfort.
We recommend wearing a compressive garment under your shirt at least 12 hours per day for 4-6 weeks. Bruising lasts 7-10 days. Good results can be seen at 2 weeks, but they continue to improve for 6 months. Pain is usually minimal.
Results are immediate and long lasting providing you maintain your weight.
