This patient is a 44 year old male who presented to my practice with interest in gynecomastia surgery. This patient had excess fullness in the chest region and was self-conscious about his appearance.
I felt that a combination of power-assisted liposuction and glandular tissue removal through the lower border of the areola would give him the best improvement in his appearance.
During surgery I removed over 150 grams of glandular tissue from the left chest and approximately 50 grams from the right due to a preoperative asymmetry. I also performed power-assisted liposuction to flatten out and blend the areas of fat excess. This combination of tissue excision and liposuction created a major improvement in the symmetry and contour of this patient's chest.
After surgery this patient recovered very well and was thrilled with his new appearance. He feels much more confident shirtless, and also feels great about how he looks in T-shirts and other clothes with a tighter fit.
