After many gyno surgeries completed, I can offer gynecomastia surgery recovery tips. I have come to the conclusion that gynecomastia surgery is the easy part in overcoming this embarrassing condition. I have control over the operation, and I feel very comfortable and confident about being able to contour the male chest expertly time after time.
What I can’t control to the same extent is what the patient does during the recovery period. I have learned over the years that this time period is very important when it comes to obtaining the best result possible. Each person is unique in terms of the severity and presentation of gynecomastia, as well as how he heals.
I stress to every one of my patients the need to comply with my post-surgery recommendations, listed below.
- It’s important to wear compression garments for four to six weeks after surgery.
- Use my rolling technique at week one and actually massage any irregularities or bumps with your fingers.
- Don’t drink more fluids than you need and don’t exercise for the first week.
- Keep your shoulders back and posture upright.
If you follow these guidelines, it is likely that you will do perfectly fine — history certainly has proven this to be true. I will keep my end of the bargain and perform world-class gynecomastia surgery. You need to keep your end of the bargain so the final result is something we can both be proud of.
