Gynecomastia Surgery

Before And After Photos

This is a case of a patient who has had gynecomastia since puberty. On a scale of 1 to 10 on how much it bothers him he told me a “13”. It has had a tremendous impact on his life in a negative way. He is 5’11” and 212 pounds (he is overweight). He is seen here after a bilateral reduction of gynecomastia tissue (surgery for gynecomastia) by using liposuction and direct removal of tissue with an incision about the areola. I removed 850cc of fat and about 85 grams of tissue from each side.

He is seen here at four months. We anticipated that he would have loose skin around his areolas as they were quite large. He has several creases in his areolas from incomplete retraction of the skin. The plan at this time is to let an additional five months pass and then we can evaluate him for a scar revision to improve on the results. He states that the procedure has made a HUGE improvement in his life and that he doesn’t hesitate to take off his shirt in public. He also says that he would love to tell me that he is “cured” but unfortunately he still carries some of the scars from having gynecomastia. This is one of the primary reasons why I believe that the condition should be evaluated and treated if it doesn’t resolve in about a year after its development. He also has been instructed to lose about 15-20 pounds to look his best. He is to continue massaging the scars beneath his chest area as this will improve and soften over a year’s time.
