We advise taking at least a week off to recover from your gynecomastia procedure. Depending on the nature of your job role, you may need to take an additional week as you will need to avoid heavy lifting and stretching for the first few weeks of recovery.
Male Chest Reduction
If the glandular breast tissue has been removed then it is unlikely to return. This is the same with fat cells however the only way to ensure that other fat cells do not expand and your results are maintained is by following a healthy diet and exercise plan.
We recommend that vigorous exercise and heavy lifting is avoided for 6 weeks post-procedure. If you start exercising too soon after your procedure then you can increase your risk for post-op complications such as swelling, pain and in severe cases hematoma so it is best to listen to your surgeon’s advice.
You are encouraged to be active after gynecomastia correction procedures so walking around and light gentle exercise should be fine in the week following surgery. Light cardio workouts could then start to be carried out 2 weeks post-surgery and you can start to ease yourself back into your gym routine again 3 weeks post-op. We do advise that upper body workouts are still then avoided for 6 weeks unless your surgeon has advised otherwise.
Full post-op care advice will be discussed with you at your consultation and after your procedure before you return home. Click here to book a consultation with one of our expert male chest reduction surgeons.
There will be some swelling and bruising after the procedure, however this should subside within a few weeks. We’ll give you a special compression garment to wear after treatment which will help minimise swelling and bruising. As always there are risks involved with any procedure, but at The Private Clinic our medical team’s experience ensures these are kept to minimum and are always explained in full to you during consultation.
Risks associated with male chest reduction surgery in particular include wound infection, seroma, temporary numbness and scarring. Your surgeon will discuss the risks in your consultation.
