This patient is a 43 year old male who presented to my practice with concerns about his appearance. He was unhappy with the fullness in his chest and flanks that persisted despite constant exercise.
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. I also felt the patient would have improvement of the flanks with power assisted liposuction.
During surgery I removed 37 grams of glandular tissue from the left chest and approximately 45 grams from the right due to a small preoperative asymmetry. I also performed power-assisted and removed 50cc from each side of the chest to flatten out and blend the areas of fat excess, along with liposuction of the flanks. This gave the patient a significant improvement in his chest and torso contour.
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.
