Gynecomastia revision surgery is offered by the top rated NYC based plastic surgeons at the NYC Gynecomastia Center (Manhattan, New York). Gynecomastia surgery (also known as a male breast reduction) aims to permanently remove excess breast tissue upon male patients utilizing liposuction and / or tissue excision methods. Gynecomastia consists of excessive breast tissue growth, leading to the presence of what look like male breasts. This can lead to increased self-consciousness, intimacy issues, and discomfort with the appearance of oneself when wearing tight fitting tops or when shirtless. Revision gynecomastia surgery may be necessary for patients who previously underwent gynecomastia surgery, but are unsatisfied by the surgical results. Our best in class board certified NY plastic surgeons are highly trained in gynecomastia revision surgery and provide high quality, natural-looking results that reflect each patient’s desired post-treatment outcome.
Gynecomastia revision surgery is routinely performed at the top rated board certified plastic surgeon’s boutique surgical suite at the NYC Gynecomastia Center (located in Manhattan, NY). Patients may opt to undergo revision gynecomastia surgery due to improper scar placement, “dog ears”, tissue regrowth, or as a result of existing excess breast tissue. The ultimate revision surgery technique (liposuction and / or tissue excision) depends on how much breast tissue is present and the patient’s unique anatomy. The end result is a chiseled chest area that is more sculpted, aesthetically attractive, firmer to the touch, tightened, and smoothed. Liposculpting can help patients achieve a sculpted “V” shape that is reflective of the classic male chest phenotype. The procedure may consist of liposuction and / or tissue excision, depending on the patient’s unique anatomy.
Individuals eligible for gynecomastia revision surgery may require another procedure due to:
- Liposuction did not initially remove breast gland tissue. The breast tissue gland is the main component in the development of male breasts, which is a significant factor in gynecomastia. The removal of tissue by surgery can yield the best results in both cases of firm or hard tissue made up of a softer fibrous tissue network. While there are several forms of liposuction that may be employed to treat gynecomastia, some patients require the total removal of glandular tissue for sufficient results.
- Male breast gland removal and liposuction left a breast mound on the chest. Revision surgery can quickly and successfully mend the chest mound if enough tissue was left behind. During revision surgery, the leftover tissue is reshaped / removed to create an aesthetically pleasing chest contour that reflects the male phenotype.
