Gynecomastia Surgery Grade 2
Dr. Delgado is in the operating room today with two cases. One is a standard gynecomastia surgery for a grade 2 patient and the other is a revision surgery. In this video snippet, he shows his technique for the standard gynecomastia surgery procedure.
The gland excision with liposuction is the most common gynecomastia surgery that plastic surgeons perform. Forty-five percent of Dr. Delgado’s surgeries are revision gynecomastia cases, and the most common reason for revision surgery is the original surgeon did not remove the breast gland. Some surgeons feel that a good result can be achieved with liposuction-only, but it does not address the gland component.
If you are considering surgery for gynecomastia, make sure that your plastic surgeon addresses the breast gland tissue.
