Although male breast reduction is preformed regularly in our clinic, the professionalism of our surgical team headed by Dr Toncic, makes us pay special attention to the preoperative preparation of our patient.


  • Prior to the male breast reduction operation, the patient goes through a routine preoperative analysis, which comprises the internal specialist examination with ECG and blood test analysis.
  • We have a special arrangement with our foreign patients. Prior to the operation and preoperative examination, we hold consultation through emails, photos and by phone. This way, our surgeons get a deeper insight into the individual case, according to which they can estimate whether the patient is a suitable candidate for the desired operation. This procedure allows our patient to come to Zagreb for the operation one time only. When our patient arrives, we hold final preoperative consultation and medical examination (including blood test and internal specialist examination with ECG), where we discuss the details of the operation together with the patient. After the consultation, we perform the surgery.
  • Before the operation, in our correspondence and detailed conversation, we instruct our patients to stop using painkillers and nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, containing acetylsalicylic acid like Aspirin, Andol or Acisal, in case they usually take these. This is very important factor in patient’s preparation for the surgery, as this way we prevent possible bleeding and haematoma during and after the procedure. Following this instruction makes the recovery quicker and more successful, and the result of the operation is improved.


  • Male breast reduction is done under general anesthetic given by a top anesthesiologist, medical doctor. The patient is asleep during the operation and the whole procedure is painless.
  • The patient stays in the clinic for 24 hours. It takes about an hour for preoperative preparations, around one and a half hours for the operation itself after which the patient rests. Once discharged from the surgery the patient is sent to home care.


  • Postoperative recovery after male breast reduction usually lasts a week after the operation, while the patient is on home care. The stitches are removed seven days after the surgery, and our patient can resume his personal and professional activities, having in mind, though, to avoid harder physical activities for 30 days after the operation.
  • In order to have the least noticeable scar possible, it would be best to avoid exposure to sun in the period of six months up to a year after the operation.
  • Great success of the operations in Dr Toncic’s clinic is largely due not only to the experience of our surgical team, precise and enhanced techniques, but also to well organized professional postoperative care.
  • To be sure of the success of the operation and wellbeing of the patient, Dr Toncic and his team insist on regular check ups and everyday contact with the patient. For our patients’ safety, successful recovery and postoperative monitoring, we recommend optimal length of stay in Zagreb. This way, we leave nothing to chance. We monitor our patient’s recovery completely, which is crucial for our patient’s health and the result of the operation.


  • Required stay in Zagreb at least 4 days. We indeed require that our patients stay in Zagreb after the male breast reduction for the optimal time, as this period is of crucial importance for our patient’s health and for the result of the operation. Having followed all the instructions, our patient can safely go home without risking the possible postoperative complications.
  • Sick leave lasts 7 days for male breast reduction surgery. On the seventh day, we remove the stitches, and after these 7 days after home care and recovery, the patient can resume his personal and professional activities. However, the patient should avoid hard physical activities and lifting heavy objects for 30 days after the operation.


  • Beside the operation, we can arrange travel and accommodation for our foreign patients. We are here to assist you in every step of the way. Therefore, we can book your flight, and private or hotel accommodation in Zagreb. Our driver will welcome you at Zagreb airport and take you to your accommodation.
