What is Gynecomastia?
The enlargement of male breast tissue is called gynecomastia. The swollen appearance of the breasts may be caused by an excess of fat, glandular tissue, or both. While gynecomastia doesn’t pose a health threat to men, it can have an adverse impact on self-esteem and may cause extensive embarrassment and self-consciousness.
Recovery from Gynecomastia Surgery
The recovery time for gynecomastia surgery depends upon the extent of the procedure. Some bruising and discomfort is normal in the days following gynecomastia surgery. Most gynecomastia surgery patients can return to their daily routine within three days of surgery, although strenuous activities and exercise should be avoided for at least four weeks.
