My latest video is of Gynecomastia, a male breast reduction surgery, in my private Huntington, Long Island NY operating room. Gynecomastia is the development of abnormal breast tissue on adolescents and men which can be small or large, and can appear on both or only the left or right male breast. I know that male Gynecomastia can cause feelings of embarrassment and awkwardness for adolescents, difficulties in wearing form fitting shirts for adults and a distraction from a chiseled and sculpted chest on body builders which is why I enjoy performing this surgery.
Many of my patients are glad to hear that I can provide them a long-term solution to reducing and reshaping their breast by glandular excision, Laser Smart Liposuction or a combination of both. Each and every patient is different. Laser Smart Liposuction may be sufficient to remove excess fat tissue from the chest region. If, however, you have dense glandular tissue causing your enlarged breast appearance, a direct excision of the gland will be needed. It’s always important to live a healthy and “clean” lifestyle by following a proper diet and regularly exercising.
Watch as I make a small incision around the nipple, which result in an inconspicuous scar. Once open and lifted, I gently removes the gynecomastia and just enough excess tissue so that the patient DOES NOT have a “caved in”, “dented”, or uneven finished appearance. Patients are also happy to know that I avoid the use of drains by reducing dead space, which is where fluid would normally collect.
As you can see in the video, the patient is awake during the entire procedure, fully relaxed and enjoying the experience with no pain. My gynecomastia surgery can take 1-3 hours to perform, depending if you require just an excision, Laser Smart Liposuction or a combination of both procedures.
