According to Dr. Azouz, the care after Gynecomastia Surgery is as important as the procedure itself. Dr. Azouz provides his patients with detailed pre-operative instructions. Gynecomastia surgery requires careful preparation and good habits following the procedure. Dr. Azouz is committed to the most comfortable recovery and the best results possible after gynecomastia surgery.
Rest often for increased Stamina
Male breast reduction with Dr. Azouz is a day surgery meaning after gynecomastia surgery, you are released to recover at home the same day. Gynecomastia surgery with Dr. Azouz is a day surgery. Depending on what Dr. Azouz says, you may need a day or two to take it easy as your body heals and adapts to your new chest contour.
You may feel more tired during the day than usual. Listen to your body, and when it tells you to take it easy, don’t hesitate to rest or take a nap. Rest allows your body to focus solely on the healing process, speeding up recovery and allowing you to get back to normal life more quickly.
Balance your diet and hydration
Getting enough water is important on a normal day and continues to be important when recovering from gynecomastia treatment. Water is vital for the body’s proper metabolism and is a significant contributing factor in the healing process. Dr. Azouz will review hydration with you after surgery to make sure you are properly hydrated. It is important to maintain a proper fluid balance after surgery.
Similarly, keeping a healthy, balanced diet in the days after surgery provides nutrients needed for healing and simply living a healthy lifestyle. Dr. Azouz recommends avoiding large, greasy, and salty foods as these foods can contribute to swelling.
Find your new normal
For men who have lived with enlarged breast tissue, gynecomastia affects more than just their self-confidence. Some men have developed different postures to help minimize their gynecomastia’s appearance, leading to hunched shoulders and a stooped appearance.
After undergoing surgery to correct gynecomastia, a patient can often stand tall and confident, and there’s no better time to begin adjusting your posture than during recovery. Exercises to help remind you that you have a new normal include rolling your shoulders, sitting in a straight-backed chair, and thrusting out your chest when standing.
