Male Breast Rejuvenation

Male Breast Reduction MontrealThe male breast following massive weight loss often shows excessive amounts of skin and fat. These cases are complex. Firstly, the excess skin cannot be tucked or rolled inside but must be removed, leaving scars on the breast skin. The amount of skin to be removed varies greatly from case to case. Every effort is made to confine the scarring to around the areola or keep the scarring on the lower part of the breast whenever possible.

Male breast rejuvenation is performed under a light general anesthesia. The breast area is first suctioned to remove any excess fatty tissue. The excess skin and fat are then removed, raising the nipple and areola to a more central position on the male breast. A light dressing is then applied. Recovery is usually swift and uneventful allowing most patients to return to work within a few days and to sporting activity in one month's time.

Male breast rejuvenation following weight loss involves safe and reliable procedures. Dr. Zelt will discuss with you the associated risks and complications during your office consultation. Fortunately, most are very uncommon and the vast majority of patients enjoy a smooth and comfortable recovery.
