Even though Gynecomastia surgery is one of the most common types of surgery practiced in the world today, there are still some risks and possible complications that may occur as a result of the procedure. For anyone considering having Gynecomastia surgery, it is best to consult with the surgeon before hand to learn the potential side effects.

While most side effects resulting from Gynecomastia surgery are rare, especially when the procedure is performed by an experienced surgeon, the most commons ones include skin injury, excessive bleeding, adverse reaction to anesthesia, and excessive fluid loss or excessive fluid accumulation underneath the skin. Also, it's possible for scarring to result from the procedure. The amount of scarring usually depends on the amount of tissue to be removed. If there is only a small amount of tissue being taken out, the scarring will likely also be quite minimal. However, if a large amount of tissue needs removed, the scars could be quite prominent.

In addition, because each side of the chest needs to be worked on separately, it could result in slightly mismatched breasts or uneven nipples. However, if this occurs, it is possible to have another type of surgery to correct it. Also if the resultant scarring is too prominent, there are many treatments available to reduce the appearance of scars.

It is not at all uncommon to experience discomfort and altered sensations in the breasts following the procedure. Some patients report numbness, particularly in the nipples, while others report feeling sore and hypersensitive to any type of contact. However, these conditions are temporary and usually go away between six and twelve months after the operation.

As with all surgeries, bruising and swelling are expected to result from Gynecomastia surgery, but it usually dissipates within two to three weeks following the procedure. Some patients also report itchiness and dry skin, especially around the incision sites. If desired, a moisturizing lotion may be used to alleviate the itchiness, but it's best to avoid putting it on the incision sites to prevent infection or further irritation.

In cases where the patient is exposed to direct sunlight for prolonged periods of time, as in sunbathing or swimming, it is possible for some discoloration to occur in the breasts, especially in the areola and nipple areas. To avoid this, it is best to avoid being uncovered in direct sunlight for a few weeks following the surgery.

While these side effects are relatively uncommon, it is important for patients to know about them before having the procedure, and to do so, they should consult with their doctor. The best way to minimize side-effects and recover quickly from Gynecomastia surgery is to follow all the post-op directions from the surgeon.
