Gynecomastia Revision Surgery

Gynecomastia surgery causes scar tissue to develop as the body heals itself. This scar tissue is why gynecomastia revision surgery requires more skill. Scar tissue is tougher and less flexible, making contouring and creating the ideal male chest shape more challenging.

As a specialist plastic surgeon, Dr. Delgado is an expert in gynecomastia revision surgery. Around 40% of the gynecomastia surgery Dr. Delgado performs is for men who require gynecomastia revision surgery following unsatisfactory initial gynecomastia surgery.
