Correction of Severe Gynecomastia

On evaluation, Dr. Romanelli found that the patient had lots of extra skin with asymmetrical large breasts. To give the best contour his surgery involved removing excess skin and breast tissue, as well as moving the nipple and areola, re-applying them as "free nipple" skin grafts.

He had a quick recovery, and has returned to all of his lifestyle activities.
