This 21 year old young man had gynecomastia since his early teen years. He had been overweight as a teen, but after losing over 45 lbs., he still retained excess breast tissue. His gynecomastia consisted of some fibrous tissue, but mostly fatty breast tissue. In these patients, I prefer to do liposuction instead of glandular excision since liposuction leaves a smaller scar and a more even contour. Many patients with glandular excision end up with a sunken in appearance to the nipple area.
His results are shown 3 months after combined ultrasonic and vacuum assisted liposuction showing a marked improvement in the chest contour.
Keep in mind that each patient is unique and your results may vary. Photos in our online gallery are of actual patients of our practice who have provided consent to display their pictures online.
