I’m Dr. Ali Mosharrafa at Mosharrafa Plastic Surgery. And one of the common problems among men is extra male breast tissue or gynecomastia. One of the questions I get commonly is, “How do we treat it? How do we remove it?”
Well the mainstay of treatment is involved in liposuction. And that’s how we remove most of the tissue in most cases. Liposuction is a procedure done with very small incisions hidden in very inconspicuous places that uses ultrasound energy or other types of energy to dissolve the tissue, and then it’s removed through a suction device. It’s an outpatient procedure, lasts typically less than an hour, and patients are back to work and regular activities within a week.
Now there are some patients unfortunately that have extra skin that’s beyond which can be treated with the technique I just described. And in very rare cases we have to remove skin as well, which unfortunately does put extra scars on the chest. But that’s an unusual situation, in patients a large amount of breast tissue and skin.
I hope you find this information helpful. If I can answer any other questions about gynecomastia surgery or any other type of surgical procedure, please call me at 602-513-8133 or visit our website at www.mosharrafa.com.
