Recovery after male breast reduction is important for both your health and the results of your surgery. Recovery time is different for everybody, but most people resume daily activities 2-3 days after the procedure, and typically return to work around 1 to 2 weeks later. You can expect to be exercising again in 3-4 weeks.
To optimise the healing process, you will be required to wear a surgical vest for up to three weeks following the procedure. Any stitches applied to incisions will dissolve.
