POST-OP SIDE EFFECTS
Following male breast reduction surgery, no matter the technique used, you will experience bruising and swelling on and around the chest area for the first couple of weeks. Although you may feel sore after surgery, this will subside after a few days. Some men may experience a loss of sensation in the chest area, but this is only temporary.
Each patient will experience a different healing process and should follow the surgeon’s care instructions for optimal results. Within a week, you can see the impending changes. It becomes clearer once the swelling subsides in six weeks and complete benefits are visible as your skin tightens in 4 – 6 months. It is essential to maintain your weight and continue to balance your hormones with medications to see positive, long-term results.
