Gynecomastia Types

Dr. Miguel Delgado provides an extensive choice of gynecomastia surgery for various types of gynecomastia:

Gynecomastia Surgery

The type of procedure you need will depend on various factors, including previous gynecomastia surgery, the grade of gynecomastia, and your goals. The male breast reduction surgery most appropriate for your unique situation will be discussed during your consultation.

Factors that affect gynecomastia surgery:

  • Skin elasticity
  • Significant weight loss
  • Amount of excess breast tissue
  • Obesity
  • Photoaging caused by sun damage
  • Age

Dr. Delgado provides four gynecomastia surgery options with liposuction:

  1. Pull-Through Technique (minimally invasive gynecomastia surgery) — Suitable for grade 1 gynecomastia and some cases of grade 2 gynecomastia symptoms
  2. Standard Gynecomastia Surgery (periareolar incision) — Suitable for grade 2 gynecomastia and some cases of grade 3 gynecomastia symptoms
  3. Two-stage Gynecomastia Surgery — Standard gynecomastia surgery, followed by a periareolar lift, performed four to six months later, under local anesthetic. Suitable for grade 3 and in some cases grade 4 gynecomastia symptoms
  4. Double incision mastectomy (mammary crease incision) — Suitable for grade 3 and grade 4 gynecomastia symptoms

Gynecomastia Revision Surgery

Revision surgery following a disappointing or ineffective first male breast reduction procedure is more complicated and delicate than undergoing it initially. Surgery to treat gynecomastia causes scar tissue to develop as the body heals itself following the removal of glandular and/or fatty breast tissue. This scar tissue is why gynecomastia revision surgery requires more skill. Scar tissue is tough and inflexible, 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 surgeries Dr. Delgado performs are for men who require gynecomastia revision surgery following unsatisfactory initial cosmetic surgery.
