Wearing a Compression Garment After Your Gynecomastia Surgery

Published on September 11, 2018

If you are suffering from gynecomastia, you may have already looked into your options for treating the issue. If so, you’ve seen that the most effective way to address gynecomastia is by undergoing surgery. It’s important to remember that you will need to spend a few days recovering after your procedure.

Gynecomastia surgery involves the surgical removal of excess glandular tissue and fat from the breasts. This means that some post-surgical swelling and discomfort are likely to occur.

In order to help reduce discomfort and manage the swelling, you will need to wear a compression garment during the initial few days after your procedure. This garment will help the skin shrink down to better fit the area’s new proportions.

Contact KH Plastic Surgery today to schedule a consultation for your gynecomastia surgery. Our board-certified plastic surgeons can provide you with the quality care and results you need.

At KH Plastic Surgery, our goal is to use artistry, state of the art techniques and a scientific approach to extract a patient's underlying beauty. We believe that internal satisfaction can often be achieved through external self-appreciation.
