Gynecomastia Surgery

Before And After Photos

This is a case that I am very proud of. It reminds me of why I perform so many gynecomastia surgery cases and the real benefits of treatment. It illustrates the potential power of a simple procedure over a persons life.

This is a 31 year old male who told me that he had gynecomastia since adolescence. He says he suffers a 10 out of 10 on my “gynecomastia scale.” It had affected his personality, his social relationships and his self-esteem. The condition had negatively affected almost every aspect of his life.

He is 5’10” and 218 pounds. He is seen here after treatment of his chest fullness with liposuction alone. I had originally anticipated that he would require both liposuction and tissue removal, but at the end of his liposuction, I wasn’t able to appreciate any actual breast tissue. I removed 2100cc of fat from his anterior chest, as well as under his arms. This is a large amount of fat to be removed only from the upper chest and breast area.

He is seen here 8 months after his procedure. He has lost 18 pounds, is eating healthy and is doing P90X. This procedure has revolutionized him –

  • “It has catapulted my spirit.”
  • “I feel like I have been liberated.”
  • “I don’t dwell on what I used to have.”
  • “The burden has been lifted.”
  • “Life goes on.”

This man is in the midst of a big transition. He plans on losing a lot more weight (“I’m concentrating on my abdomen now”). He says he has adjusted to his new chest without him feeling that he has “scars” from living with chest fullness for so long. It’s important to note that I did not offer him liposuction of his abdomen as I knew that this was an issue with carrying too much weight, whereas his chest fullness would not change that much with weight loss alone.
