Gynecomastia Surgery

Before And After Photos

This is a 28 year old male who is 5’7″ and 175 pounds who presented to my practice complaining of gynecomastia. He says he had it since puberty. In terms of how much his condition bothered him, he rated it an 8 out of 10, where 10 is the most severe.

You can see that he had some fullness around the area of the nipple-areola complex on both sides. He said the left side was larger than the right. He is seen here about eight months after an excision of the gynecomastia. Tissue removal measured 110 grams on the left and 72 grams on the right. No liposuction was performed.

The tissue found at the time of gynecomastia surgery was surprisingly large. This was all removed through a small incision that followed the bottom border of his areola. This tissue was rubbery in nature and certainly not something that can be treated by liposuction of any type (including laser liposuction). It’s interesting that even though such a huge amount of tissue was removed, the photos are really not that dramatic in appearance. However, there is a huge improvement noted by the patient for sure and he says that he is well on the road to recovery. He has no problem wearing tighter shirts, is no longer thinking about his condition all day long, and will even take his shirt off in public. The burden of gynecomastia is as real as the rising sun, and the treatment of this condition is the first step to recovery.
