What is the surgical procedure for Gynecomastia Surgery?

Options include removal of the tissue under the breast, or liposuction of the chest wall. In both instances, a small elliptical incision is made on the lower half of the nipple area (areola). For those men with tissue that is more glandular in nature, all breast tissue directly under the nipple is removed.
If the tissue is fattier in nature, liposuction can provide excellent results. In some people, ultrasonic assisted liposuction is an excellent approach.  During liposuction, a small suction rod (cannula) is inserted into the incision to remove fat and other tissue.  In some cases, a repeat procedure is necessary to remove tissue that was missed during the first procedure. In a few cases, if there is a large amount of extra skin, it may be necessary to remove this tissue, which may result in a large scar. Surgical time will take between 1 ½ – 2 hours.
