What are the side effects of gynecomastia surgery?

Every treatment process has its own useful aspects as well as its flaws. Gynecomastia surgery also holds so many side effects that rendered it risky and a bit complicated. Following are some of the commonly known side effects of male breast reduction in Dubai.

  • Infection in the wound:

After undergoing gynecomastia surgery, infection is most likely to occur as wounds are fresh and bacteria may affect it if proper care is not being done. Infection can also be occurring through unclean clothes, an unhygienic condition of a hospital, or due to the carelessness of patient in his post-surgery care. Bacterial and fungal infection is very harmful to the wound and it must be prevented before time by considering proper precautionary measures related to after surgery care.  

  • Bleeding:

When incisions are made to remove the extra fat cells, bleeding is an obvious side effect. Therefore, the patient is advised to maintain his HB level normal before going for gynecomastia in Dubai to avoid any kind of future concerns.

  • Swelling and bruising:

In any type of cosmetic surgery, cuts and incisions are normal and needed to be done. This raises a side effect of swelling and bruising which means the wounded area gets swollen due to various microorganisms that went into the skin during surgery and then they are likely to cause infection which afterward swells the wound. Therefore, doctors prescribe medications before the surgery so that swelling and bruising may be avoided.

  •  Lack of nipple sensation:

When male breast reduction Dubai is done, there is another side effect that is linked with it is of nipple sensitivity. Men usually observe the lack of nipple sensation as cuts and wounds affect the area around areolas and because of so many anti-biotic medications and ointments, the nipples get dry and flaky and loss all their sensitivity.  

  •  Breast asymmetry:

Everyone has asymmetrical breasts whether a woman or a man. There must be the little bit different in the size of the breast. But after undergoing gynecomastia surgery, this difference increases extensively. Breast asymmetry in males usually arises due to hormonal imbalance and as a side effect of breast reduction surgery as well.

  • Continuous pain:

Persistent pain is the main side effect of any of the cosmetic surgery and one out of it is gynecomastia or male breast reduction surgery. Pain is an obvious risk that starts just after you have done with your operation. Throughout the recovery period, the pain goes from harsh to low and from low to mild and it completely ends up when you care for yourself and take medicines regularly.

Some other side effects of gynecomastia Dubai surgery include:

  • Anesthesia allergy
  •  Imperfect body contouring
  • De-shaped male’s chest
  • Regain of fats
  • Damage to nerves during the surgery
