Developing excess breast tissue can be an embarrassing condition for boys and men to experience. We offer the male breast reduction procedure to remove this extra tissue. This technique requires a period of gynecomastia surgery recovery afterwards.

Plastic tubes called drains are sometimes inserted into the tissues of the chest after male breast reduction. Drains are used to carry excess fluids from the body in order to prevent the formation of pockets of fluid in the tissues called seromas and hematomas. For around one or two weeks of gynecomastia surgery recovery, you may need to care for drains.
