Male Breast Reduction Consultations
The same factors will come under discussion with Dr. Z between men as it does between women. He will need to understand the concerns and the aspirations of the procedure. He will also need to determine the man is a suitable candidate for the procedure.
Items that they discuss will include any previous surgery, medications, herbal supplements, alcohol, tobacco products, or any recreational drug use. One other area the doctor needs to know is if there, has there been any use of steroids?
After this, he will examine the male’s breasts, and take pictures. These will be the before shots, and he will also take the after shots once the procedure is complete.
Recovery from Male Breast Reduction
After the procedure, there will be swelling, redness and discomfort in the chest area. Patients are likely to feel tired after the procedure and should have another adult present for the first twenty-four hours in case of shortness of breath, chest pain or any unfamiliar heart beat rhythms.
For the first few weeks after the procedure, a compression garment will be advisable to help minimize swelling, and to help enhance the results. It will take two to three days of good rest after the procedure, and patients must adhere to the instructions given by either Dr. Zuriarrain or the staff in the Miami, FL clinic.
It is possible for men to return to work after five days, as long as they don’t exert themselves. Full recovery and undertaking regular activities is usually around three to four weeks after surgery.
