Incision patterns vary depending on the specific conditions and surgical preference. While most incision lines are concealed within natural contours, some may be visible and are a necessary result of breast reduction surgery.

Male breast reduction patients can return to full strenuous activity two to three weeks following surgery, and are to return to work within one or three days. Patients should avoid exposing the operated area to the sun for at least six months to eliminate the risk of permanently altered skin pigmentation.

Improvement is permanent, barring massive weight gain or use of certain drugs. After surgery, dressings or bandages will be applied to your incisions and an elastic bandage or support garment may be used to minimize swelling and support your new chest contour as it heals.

A small, thin tube may be temporarily placed under the skin to drain any excess blood or fluid that may collect.
