Male Breast Reduction in Dubai – Gynecomastia Surgery

Many men have noticeably large breasts which may lead to mental stress and embarrassment. This condition of over-developed and enlarged breasts among men is known as Gynecomastia which can occur at any age. If you are also suffering from gynecomastia, then male breast reduction surgery or Gynecomastia surgery in Dubai is the best option for you.

What is Gynecomastia Surgery? 

Male breast reduction, or gynecomastia surgery, involves the removal of excess fat and glandular tissue in the chest area. As a result, the size of the enlarged breasts is reduced. You need an experienced surgeon who specializes in breast surgery if you expect successful results. 

Why is Gynecomastia surgery done?

Sometimes, enlarged breasts can hinder men’s ability to perform activities like swimming, running, jogging, exercising, or even routine work. To overcome these obstacles, gynecomastia surgery is performed. The following are some of the key goals of performing gynecomastia for large breasts

  • Reduce the size of the breasts.
  • Tighten the breasts.
  • Improve the symmetry of breasts.
  • Enhance the contours of the body.

Who is an Ideal Candidate for Gynecomastia Surgery?

You may be an ideal candidate for gynecomastia surgery if

  • Your breasts are large and asymmetrical.
  • You are uncomfortable with your breast size and it’s causing you discomfort.
  • Your skin has lost elasticity.
  • Your body weight is stable and relatively proportional to your height.
  • You should be in good overall health and free from any serious medical conditions.
  • You have realistic expectations from the surgery. 

Pre-operative Evaluation 

Before undergoing the procedure, it is important to evaluate the pros and cons, dos and don’ts of gynecomastia surgery. The following steps are crucial for a comprehensive pre-operative evaluation.

Consultation with a Plastic Surgeon

The first step is to consult with an experienced and skilled plastic surgeon. Discuss your expectations, potential risks, costs, and whether insurance may cover the surgery.

Medical History Assessment 

The doctor will review your medical history to assess your suitability for the surgery.

Diagnostic Tests

Alongside, the doctor will request comprehensive laboratory blood tests, including a glucose test. These tests are essential to evaluate your overall health and readiness for surgery.

What are the treatment options for gynecomastia surgery?

 There are three major techniques to perform male breast reduction in Dubai which include;


This technique is suitable for men who have excess fat in the chest area and their skin elasticity is good. During the process, the surgeon makes a tiny incision near the areola and then inserts a hollow metal cannula through it. The cannula, connected to a vacuum device, removes excess fat from the chest area.

Surgical removal of extra tissues

This technique is recommended for men with poor skin elasticity. This involves making an incision in the lower half of the chest near the areola. After making the incision, the surgeon removes extra tissues near the breast area and thus, the chest gets the desired shape.

How to care for the breasts after the surgery?

Your surgeon will provide a personalized list of post-surgical instructions, but some instructions are common among nearly all patients. These instructions are as follows:

  • Take the medications prescribed by your surgeon regularly.
  • Use cold compresses as directed by your surgeon to minimize discomfort and swelling.
  • Wear a compression garment as advised by your surgeon, typically for several weeks.
  • Avoid strenuous activities for about three weeks, but begin light walking as soon as it’s comfortable to do so.

What is the recovery period for gynecomastia?

The gynecomastia surgery recovery time varies from patient to patient depending on various factors. Typically, the initial recovery period ranges from 1 to 2 weeks. In some cases, due to complications or individual healing rates, the recovery period may extend.

Resume strenuous activities only after getting clearance from your surgeon, typically after several weeks. To facilitate a smooth recovery, adhere to the following post-operative guidelines.

Gynecomastia Results

The final results of gynecomastia surgery depend on the reasons that caused the gynecomastia. If gynecomastia is linked to medication use, obesity, or drug use, avoiding these triggers and maintaining a stable weight are crucial for optimal results.

It’s important to note that while results are generally positive, they can vary based on individual factors.
