Recovery Time: The patient can usually return to work in 5 days to a week depending on the individual. Exercise and strenuous activity may be done at 3 to 6 weeks following surgery.
Post Operative Healing: Each patient heals differently; however following the male breast reduction surgery patients may experience temporary pain, swelling, possible bruising, soreness, numbness, burning sensation and fatigue.
Scars: The small incisions around the areolar will fade and flatten with time. It has been our experience that patients are very happy with their post op results, the small scars and their new look.
