Gynecomastia, the enlargement or growth of breast tissue in males, commonly occurs in adolescent boys as they go through the hormonal changes of puberty. Male breast reduction surgery on a preteen or teen boy is a straightforward procedure that can significantly improve self-confidence and emotional well-being.
Is the Recovery Painful?
Young men are usually strong and healthy, and they tend to heal and recover quite rapidly. Soreness after the surgery is normal and is easily treated with painkillers. You should be able to return to school within 2-3 days, and within 4 weeks you should be able to engage in your regular exercise or sports again.
