Gynecomastia is a medical term used to describe an enlargement of male breast glands. There are different treatment options which can range from liposuction, to resection of the breast gland, or a combination of both. Each individual case is different, and therefore, the treatment plan should be individualized to each patient.
Case: This patient is a 35 year old male who presented with displeasure in the appearance of his enlarged breast glands. After a thorough evaluation and physical examination, the medical diagnosis of gynecomastia was made. My surgical advice was a staged approach. The first stage would utilize liposuction to remove excess fat and tissue, to follow with a resection of the gland.
Surgery: Adipose tissue was removed utilizing liposuction techniques. To follow, the breast gland was resected.
