The gynecomastia surgery technique
Your gynecomastia surgery will be performed under general anesthesia and will involve one (or both) of the following techniques:
Most gynecomastia surgeries involve fat removal with liposuction. For most men, the excess tissue is almost entirely fat – so liposuction alone can achieve ideal results.
Surgical tissue excision
In some cases, there is actual breast tissue that must be surgically excised to achieve a masculine chest appearance. If needed, we will make a small, well-hidden incision that allows us to access and remove the unwanted tissue.
Fat removal is almost always part of our custom gynecomastia surgery. Performed with general anesthesia, liposuction removes the excess fat from the internal chest region. Excess glandular tissue is then removed, loose skin tightened, and the nipples surgically reshaped and placed in the ideal, natural position. Your incisions will then be closed and wrapped with a compression bandage to reduce swelling and keep the tissue positioned properly for healing.
