Breast Reduction For Men in Winnipeg, MB

Male breast development aka Gynecomastia is a fairly common condition in males and generally occurs during the teenage years or later in the senior ages of life.

It can develop from the production of male breast tissue or simply be fatty in nature. It can be caused by a number of factors such as hormonal change, weight fluctuations, genetics, prescription medications, marijuana or steroids. Often, enlarged male breasts can cause social and emotional anxiety or discomfort. Due to this, some males avoid physical activities or even intimacy. Fortunately, there is an aesthetic surgery that can help.

Male chest reduction surgery is performed under general anesthetic in 1 to 2 hours. During the surgery, Liposuction to the chest is performed first to remove the fatty component of the “breast”. Following liposuction, if breast tissue is present an incision is made along the lower border of the areola (darker pigment around the nipple) to allow removal of the rubbery glandular tissue. This procedure is often combined with BodyTite to provide tightening to the skin of the chest to maximize results. Rarely further skin removal is required through larger scars; however, as much as possible Dr. Islur will attempt to tighten the skin through minimally invasive/less scarring techniques.

Very rarely, breast tissue alone is present and liposuction is not required.

Your surgery will be custom tailored to your unique needs, individual results may vary.

Your procedure will take place at Dr. Avi Islur’s state of the art cosmetic surgery centre, The First Glance Aesthetic Clinic & Surgery Centre in Winnipeg, Manitoba.

What Is Recovery Like After Male Breast Reduction Surgery?

As with most aesthetic surgeries, you will need to take time to recover. The recovery period is different for every patient according to the extent of the surgery and the patient’s health.

Swelling, bruising and some minor pain can be expected. You will need to wear a compression garment over the area to help reduce swelling. You will be able to return to work within 3 to 7 days. Strenuous activity should be avoided for the first week or two. You may experience fluid retention. Your body will swell with Liposuction and may not completely flatten out for up to 6 months.

What are the Risks Involved?

Male Chest Reduction is a safe and effective surgery, with minimal complications. Risks can include but are not limited to fluid retention, nipple sensation changes, mild contour irregularities, and wide or thickened scars. Recurrence can occur if the cause of the male breast development was due to medication, marijuana or steroids and these drugs are not stopped.

During your consultation, Dr. Avi Islur and his expert medical team will clearly outline all of the necessary precautions you need to take, as well as any postoperative limitations you should follow.

Dr. Avi Islur and his team of medical experts will take every necessary precaution to minimize any risks involved with your surgery.

I’ve Heard that Taking Anti-Estrogen Medications will Make the Breast Development Go Away?

This is a very dangerous approach and should be avoided. Taking anti-estrogen medication like Tamoxifen (a medication taken by female breast cancer patients) is extremely risky and can cause other issues in men. If you obtain these medications, they are likely not legitimate medications as medical practioners will not prescribe them to men. Buyer beware!

How Long Is The Wait For Surgery?

If you have a preferred surgery date, do not wait until it’s too late! Dr. Avi Islur runs a very active cosmetic practice, patients typically book well in advance for consultations and surgery dates.

On average, the wait time is about two months from the time of your consultation.
