Gynecomastia Surgery Before After #15

Before & After Male Breast Reduction


This 18-year-old man developed gynecomastia (breast enlargement) at 12 years of age. Despite losing 30lbs of weight he continues to be bothered by the persistence of a feminine chest contour. Male breast reduction was performed with the following notables:

  • breast gland was directly excised using the traditional periareolar incision
  • liposuction was performed through the same incision
  • total liposuction aspirate was 200ml (100ml per side)
  • outpatient surgery
  • general anesthesia
  • compression garment was worn for 6weeks  
  • healing was complicated with areolar dimpling

The photographs in the gallery were taken before and 8 weeks after male breast reduction.
