A Guide to Plastic Operations
Enlarged breasts do not improve man’s self-confidence. The cause is either an imbalance of oestrogen and testosterone in the body causing growth of the mammary gland (gynaecomastia) or accumulated subcutaneous fat. In both cases, the surgeon uses liposuction, possibly in combination with another procedure, to reduce male breasts.
- ANAESTHESIA: Majority of procedures are done in general anesthesia due to comfort of the clients.
- THE DURATION OF THE SURGERY: 1 – 2 hours
- RECOVERY: 4-6 weeks

WHAT TO START WITH BEFORE THE PROCEDURE
The surgeon will make things clear
A pre-surgery consultation precedes any procedure. You will be taken care of directly by a plastic surgeon (that means the most competent specialist) at the Aesthevita plastic surgery clinic. You will talk about the ideal solution to your problem and you have the possibility to ask him early on about each of your concerns. So you leave the consultation with a clearer image of the process and the outcome of the planned surgery.
Gynaecomastia is not rare
Male breast enlargement is less exceptional than you think. It occurs during the whole life – puberty, middle age and even higher age. Milder symptoms receive almost no attention. Moreover, they often disappear themselves. Transitional gynaecomastia mainly appears in puberty when the body is undergoing hormonal storms. The best solutions for stronger cases of gynaecomastia in adult males are plastic surgeries of male breasts, possibly combined with liposuction. If the cause of the enlarged breasts is fat, liposuction is enough. This procedure is chosen for minor gynaecomastia as well.
Right before the surgery
Before you step in to the operation room, you undergo pre-surgery examination with blood sampling and an ECG.
Patients aged over 60 undergo an x-ray of the lungs as well, for smokers the age limit is set at 50+.
WHAT IS HAPPENING UNDER THE HANDS OF A SURGEON
Do not fear scars
The surgeon removes the fat from the body using a metal cannula connected to the device generating the suction. Its diameter is only a few millimetres and so is the diameter of minor scars that will remain visible after the surgery. You don’t have to fear conspicuous scars. At the end of the surgery, the surgeon stitches the wounds with absorbable sutures and aseptically covers them with plaster and an elastic compression vest.
Male breast liposuction is performed under general anaesthesia so you will need short hospitalization. You will stay at the clinic for one night. You will have a decent rest after the surgery there and the doctor will discharge you to domiciliary treatment the next day.
THE WAYS IN WHICH I CAN SUPPORT RECOVERY
Schedule time off
Persuade yourself to take a rest the first days after the surgery. The body requires rest after each surgery and it is a must for proper regeneration. The bruises and swelling will gradually disappear within three weeks. In approximately a month, you can return to sports and other physically demanding activities. Massage the treated area during your recovery. It significantly promotes proper healing of the scarred subcutaneous tissue.
Compression garment for better healing
Wear the elastic compression vest in which you leave the clinic for the whole 6 weeks after the surgery. Take it off only for a moment – for a shower for example. The compression garment prevents creating more bruises and facilitates healing.
Tip: We recommend wearing and changing at least two compression garments in order for the wounds to be constantly in a clean environment. You can wash your clothes on a daily basis shortly after the surgery.
Swelling disappears gradually
After the liposuction, swelling of the treated areas can continue to subside for several months. Do you observe minor swelling even after several weeks? Be profoundly patient and wait, the swelling will gradually regress.
HOW IT WILL CHANGE MY LIFE
Enjoy greater self-confidence
There is a relatively specific aesthetic assumption what the normal look of male breasts is. Unusually enlarged breasts in men cause unwelcome attention and the man then, in turn, loses his self-confidence. Plain flat or muscular shape of the male breasts is more important for natural self-confidence than you might think. The procedure to improve the aesthetic qualities of the enlarged breasts may be positively reflected in various areas of a man’s life.
The price of the procedure is final, everything necessary is already calculated. It specifically includes the following:
- A consultation with the plastic surgeon
- Compressive postoperative halter garment
- The procedure itself
- A stay at the clinic after the surgery
- A package with postoperative care
