Male breast augmentation is a cosmetic procedure to enlarge the male’s breasts by inserting a breast implant. It is usually done on a male to female surgery to give patients contoured feminine breasts. However, in some cases, it is also done to enhance the pectoral muscles on men whose chests do not seem to respond to exercise or men with Poland’s syndrome.
Male breast augmentation is carried out under general anesthetic. Your surgeon starts by making an incision in an inconspicuous area, usually under the breast along the natural skin fold, to make sure the scar is unnoticeable. Then, they place the implant either under the chest muscles or behind the breast tissue. The implants can be made from silicone gel or saline, and the size is adjusted based on your preferences.
After the surgery, you may leave the hospital on the same day or stay for one night. After you are discharged, you need to attend regular follow-up checkups with your surgeon to make sure that the implants are fully functioning and to remove the stitches. Therefore, aim to stay in Malaysia for at least 7 to 10 days following the surgery.
You may feel uncomfortable for the first few days and your doctor will give you pain medication to manage the discomfort, so you may need to rest as much as possible during this period. The recovery period until you can go back to your normal routine (including intense exercise) may take about 4 to 6 weeks, but you should be able to return to work within 1 or 2 weeks.
It is important to follow your surgeon’s post-operative instruction to avoid any complications and to make sure that the wounds will heal properly. Your surgeon’s instruction may include restrictions, diet, exercise, and wound care. Since some implants need to be replaced after about 10 years, make sure you attend regular checkups with your local doctor.
In general, the success rate of male breast augmentation is similar to female breast augmentation, which is around 90% to 98%. Although most patients are happy with the outcome of the surgery, it is important to be well-informed about the side effects and risks before you decide to have it, which are bleeding, infection, seroma, hematoma, asymmetry, implant shifting or displacement, numbness of the upper arm, unfavorable scarring, dissatisfaction, and allergic reaction to the anesthesia.

In cases of male-to-female transition, the alternatives are breast enlargement pills, breast enlargement pumps, breast enlargement cream, and fat transfer. However, these alternatives may not work as well as breast augmentation surgery. If the procedure is done to enhance the pectoral muscle, your alternative is pectoral etching.
Before male breast augmentation, you may not like the appearance of your chest. After the surgery, you can have augmented and feminine breasts that you were always meant to have, or you can have the “puffed-up” look you have always dreamed of.
