Gynecomastia surgery, also known as male breast reduction, is typically performed under general anesthesia and is usually not painful during the procedure. After the procedure, some discomfort and swelling is normal and can be managed with pain medication prescribed by the surgeon.
It is important to note that every patient's experience is unique and that the level of discomfort experienced following gynecomastia surgery will vary based on a number of factors, including the extent of the procedure, the patient's individual pain tolerance, and the effectiveness of the postoperative pain management regimen.
Most patients report that any discomfort they experience following gynecomastia surgery is manageable and that they are able to return to work and normal activities within a few days to a week. However, it is important to follow the surgeon's postoperative instructions and attend all follow-up appointments to ensure the best possible outcome.
