Male Breast Reduction Surgery in Tijuana

The Ultimate Guide to Male Breast Reduction Surgery in Tijuana

Last fact-checked: 31 August 2020

Head to Tijuana for male breast reduction surgery performed by a reliable, experienced surgeon.

Gynaecomastia (or "man boobs" as they are more commonly referred to) can be an embarrassing problem that affects men of any age, leading to self-consciousness and awkwardness, especially when the shirt comes off.

Find out how Medical Departures can help with our leading clinics and surgeons in Tijuana.

What Causes "Man Boobs?"

Many men are ashamed of their man boobs, leading to a lack of confidence. Some think they are caused by too much weight, but this isn’t always the case. Birth abnormalities, hormonal diseases and even the use of anabolic steroids may trigger the problem. In these cases, diet and exercise can only do so much.  

Why Should I Consider Male Breast Reduction in Tijuana?

If you are looking for a discrete and affordable way of getting rid of male breasts, going to Tijuana could be the answer, especially for North Americans who can reach this Mexican border city easily. If you want to make a bit of a holiday out of it, there are plenty of things to do in and around Tijuana, or you can just relax by your hotel pool–there are all styles and all budgets to suit.

Cost is another reason–you’ll pay around 50% less for a male breast reduction in Tijuana.

But what about quality? You’d be right to ask. You will discover reputable clinics and well-qualified, experienced surgeons in Tijuana, but you will need to do some research. As with most things in life, it pays to have a little knowledge and to know what you’re looking for.

Medical tourism is booming in Tijuana and this is good news for international patients. Clinics, hospitals and surgeons who cater to international patients tend to be high-quality, offering high standards of services and facilities with knowledgeable, experienced medical staff. These facilities rely on the income generated from foreign patients; if they weren’t offering the quality, they’d soon be out of business.  

Booking with Medical Departures

We check all our provider qualifications and professional memberships, listing them on our site with real patient reviews and virtual tours/photos of the clinics. We make it our business to visit clinics personally and to inspect legal and criminal records too. If things don’t stack-up, we don’t list.

We only list the very best surgeons in Tijuana having checked qualifications, whether they are certificated to practice and if they have carried out further specialist training. We also look for international affiliations, such as the International Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons

Take a look now at these leading facilities in Tijuana that offer male breast reduction surgery:

How Long Does the Procedure Take and What Is Involved?

The surgery is usually carried out under a general anesthetic and takes between one and two hours.

Excess breast tissue is usually removed through incisions made around the nipple, although if there is a lot of tissue to remove, the incisions may extend down the chest, and the nipples repositioned. Once the tissue is removed, wounds are stitched and bandages or compression garments fitted, and sometimes wound drains are inserted to draw fluid away from the area.

What Is the Recovery Time and How Long Will I Need to Spend in Tijuana?

You will need to be in Tijuana for around five days for your male breast reduction. After surgery, you will be given pain medication to ease the discomfort as you will feel sore and tender afterward. You will be encouraged to lie on your back for a few days to help with swelling and should be able to recommence everyday activities after a few days. You will generally be asked to go back to see your surgeon after a few days to remove any drains and to check everything is healing well.

You should be able to return to work after a week, although you must take it easy, and you will still be tender.

Avoid overstretching and heavy lifting for around a month and remember to keep out of the sun for six months’ as this can lead to scar discoloration.

The average cost of male breast reduction in Tijuana is $2,000 (CAD $2,500; GBP £1,300; €1,700; AUD $2,700), compared to at least $4,000 in the United States (CAD $5,200; GBP £2,600; €3,500; AUD $5,400).
