Is breast surgery an outpatient procedure?

The answer to this question depends on the type of surgery you intend to perform.

Breast cancer surgeries, breast augmentation and breast reduction are some of the surgeries that can be performed both on an outpatient basis and under anesthesia.

Most lumpectomy surgeries, or minor breast surgeries, are performed on an outpatient basis.

Most mastectomy or breast augmentation surgeries are also performed under anesthesia and require at least one night of hospitalization.

Talk to your surgeon about whether your surgery will be performed on an outpatient basis.


Can men also have breast surgery?

Yes. There are some men who get a complication called gynecomastia. In this complication, men's breasts enlarge. Although gynecomastia is often due to hormonal disorders and can improve on its own after a while, many men prefer to treat it with surgery.
