Our office is very patient centered. Meeting the goals of our patients begins by carefully listening to their concerns and developing a management plan tailored to their specific needs, body type and solutions available. Consultations take place in our private offices located within the Rockland Medical Centre in Mont-Royal Quebec. All procedures are performed in a state-of-the-art, accredited, modern surgical facility where patient comfort and safety are paramount.

In all cases, minimal incision techniques are used to give the results the patients desire with minimal or no evidence that they have undergone surgical correction of their condition. The procedures offered to patients are always tailored to their body type and pattern of gynecomastia. Minor sub nipple-areolar complex (subNAC) cases are most often corrected with local anesthesia via a short peri-areolar incision. Physiologic type gynecomastia with more substantial volumes are managed under either local anesthesia with intravenous sedation or full general anesthesia. In these cases, volume is removed with standard liposuction technique and any residual subNAC glad removed at the same procedure with a short peri-areolar incision. More substantial volumes, often with excess skin, are addressed individually where surgical plans are made based on our patient’s concerns and goals. Body builders present with primarily subNAC gland for removal and this is done with local anesthesia and IV sedation via a short peri-areolar incision.
