Gynecomastia correction (Male breast reduction)

The first patient had classic, idiopathic (random) gynecomastia.  He was treated with a small incision below the areola and a 3/16″ liposuction incision in the armpit.

This first patient has had good retraction of his skin, and now has a flat masculine chest with a smooth, flat contour.

This second patient had small volume gynecomastia that subtly changed his chest shape.  It blunted the contours of his muscular pecs.  However, his main complaint was of pain associated with the firm gynecomastia.  I treated him with an incision under the areola to remove the hard painful breast tissue, and used liposuction to ensure that there would be no step-off deformity at the periphery of the resection.

He now has much better definition of his chest.  The puffiness at the inferior aspect of his chest is gone, and the skin is now tightened up.  He has also had resolution of the pain associated with the excess gynecomastia tissue. Scars from the procedure are subtle and hard to identify after several months of healing.



This 31 year old gentleman has obvious gynecomastia.  Another surgeon previously operated on him, but didn’t remove all of the excess breast tissue.  I used incisions hidden around his areola to remove the tissue and performed additional contouring with liposuction to make sure he didn’t have a scooped out appearance to his chest.

Scars are still subtly visible in these one month postoperartive photos, but will continue to fade with time.
