A Guide to Plastic Operations
Enlarged breasts lower the self-confidence of a lot of men. The cause of the enlargement 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 again. Modern radiofrequency liposuction BodyTite is even more gentle thanks to its connection to the radiofrequency energy (RFAL). Therefore, you lose redundant breast fat once and for all.

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 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 the procedure, you undergo a process of blood sampling. The doctor checks your blood count and blood clotting.
WHAT IS HAPPENING UNDER THE HANDS OF A SURGEON
The progress of the procedure
Sucking the fat out during the process of liposuction BodyTite is performed with very thin cannulas which do not leave serious bruises. Radiofrequency energy effectively dissolves redundant fat and its subsequent sucking is less traumatic for the body. At the same time, this has a very positive effect on smoothing the skin with cellulite. Moreover, it minimizes the emergence of post-surgery haematomas and bruises. Stitching the wounds with absorbable sutures and application of sterile bandages come at the end of the surgery.
Overnight stay at the clinic is not necessary
Male breast liposuction is performed under local anaesthesia so you will be discharged shortly after the surgery. Only patients that underwent general anaesthesia during more complex procedure will stay at the clinic for one or two nights. If you undergo local anaesthesia, take into account the fact that you might feel the pressure of the cannula through which the surgeon sucks out fat.
THE WAYS IN WHICH I CAN SUPPORT RECOVERY
Schedule a time off
Tumescent liposuction in combination with radiofrequency energy is less demanding for the patient and the process of recovery is faster than for conventional liposuction. Proper regeneration is a must. The bruises and swelling will gradually disappear within three weeks. In approximately a month, you can return to sports and other physically demanding activities.
Compression garment for better healing
Wear the elastic compression garment 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 the 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 a period of up to 3 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 as to what is the normal look of male breasts. Unusually enlarged breasts in men cause unwelcome attention and the man in turn loses his self-confidence. A 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 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 package with postoperative care
