How does a breast reduction for men work?

When you are interested in a breast reduction, you first consult with one of our consultants. During this interview, you can indicate what your complaints are and what results you would like to achieve. The consultant will then list the options for you and give you advice. Advice will also be given about which doctor best fits your complaints and can therefore help you best. If you agree with this advice, you will also consult the doctor. He will also look at your complaints and will explain how the operation works. We are already looking at where breast tissue can be removed. All risks and possible side effects are also discussed and you will receive all the information you need.

During surgery, fat tissue is removed by liposuction or liposculpture (or a combination of the two). This means that the fatty tissue in the breast is sucked away. It is an accurate treatment because the doctor can feel good where the fat is removed. He can therefore determine whether the right amount is removed, which gives a nice result. When the fat has been sucked away, the excess gland tissue is also removed. To do this, an incision is made under the areola and then the doctor separates the surplus gland tissue from the skin and muscle. A small amount will always be left to ensure that the nipple maintains its shape.

The operation is performed under complete anesthesia. This means that the whole body is numb, so that you will not notice anything of the procedure. Even after the operation, you will not remember anything from the operation. You go to sleep and wake up when the breast reduction is complete.
