Tissue Removal: Excess breast tissue, fat, and skin are removed through the incisions to achieve a flatter and more masculine chest contour. Dr. Day may use liposuction techniques to remove excess fat and sculpt the chest area further.


Nipple Repositioning: In some cases, the position and size of the nipples may be adjusted to create a more natural and aesthetically pleasing appearance.

Generally, after an individual has undergone male chest reduction surgery at Pacific Sound Plastic Surgery with Dr. Kristopher M. Day, they can expect the following recovery process:


After the surgery, patients may experience some discomfort, swelling, and bruising in the chest area. Pain medication prescribed by Dr. Day can help manage any discomfort during this time. Patients will be instructed to wear a compression garment or surgical binder around the chest area to minimize swelling, provide support, and aid in the healing process. It is crucial to wear the garment as instructed by the Dr. Day and the team at Pacific Sound Plastic Surgery. Patients should avoid strenuous activities, heavy lifting, and exercises that engage the chest muscles for several weeks following surgery. Gradual reintroduction of physical activities will be guided by the Dr. Day. Regular follow-up appointments with Dr. Day will be scheduled to monitor the healing progress, remove any sutures or drains, and assess the surgical outcomes. These appointments are crucial for ensuring optimal results and addressing any concerns or questions the patient may have. While initial improvements may be visible immediately after surgery, final results will gradually become more apparent as swelling subsides and the chest area heals completely. It may take several weeks to months for the final results to manifest fully.


Overall, following post-operative care instructions provided by Dr. Day and his team at Pacific Sound Plastic Surgery is essential for a smooth and successful recovery process, leading to optimal outcomes from male chest reduction surgery.
