Dr Joseph Bou-Merhi performs surgery to correct gynecomastia, or enlarged breasts in the male patient. Offered in Nuns' Island, breast reduction for men allows patients to feel more confident in their bodies. If you suffer from this annoying condition, do not hesitate to book a consultation. It's time to regain your confidence, and Centre de Chirurgie Plastique de l’Île-des-Sœurs offers plastic surgery that can help you.
Performed under mixed or general anesthesia, the procedure takes place more or less 2 hours. It consists of removing excess fat, glandular tissue and skin and decreasing the size of the nipples. The incisions are made at the edge of the areolas. After 2 to 4 weeks of recuperation at home, patients return to work. Sun exposure is not recommended during the 6 months following the operation, among other recommendations. All pre- and post-operative advice is clearly explained to you during surgery preparation. Of course, Dr Bou-Merhi and his team remain at your disposal to answer your questions.
