As someone considering gynecomastia surgery to address enlarged male breast tissue, you probably have questions about the recovery period. It’s important to know that this procedure is done on an outpatient basis, meaning you will return home on the day of your surgery to rest and recuperate. From there, you will need to follow certain aftercare measures and avoid intense physical activity for approximately four weeks.
In the following video, board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Christopher Williams goes into detail about the male breast surgery recovery process. He explains how long you will need to wear a compression garment, what medications you may need to take, and when you can resume normal activities.
