- Male Breast Reduction with excision technique
- The best candidates for gynecomastia with excision technique
- Possible complications
Enlarged male breasts must be differentiated from carcinoma of the breast.
Gynecomastia can be thus classified to 4 degrees, depending on the amount of enlarged gland:
Generally degrees IIa and III require not just gland resection, but skin excision. In most cases it is possible to correct gynecomastia from periareoral approach.
Excision technique is required if the size of areola needs to be reduced or nipple is to be repositioned to achieve more natural male contour. This technique also allows surgeons to remove glandular breast tissue or excess skin. The incision is made around the areola and the surgeon removes gland.
Finally, sutures are given along the incision. There is however another technique which offers elegant procedure, so called arthroscopy shaver technique.
This cordled shaver uses tube with blade that moves back and forth, it means that by inserting this tube underneath the glandular tissue, shaving is performed, since it cannot be removed by means of liposuction or laser. Furthermore laser might be used to stimulate additional skin tightening.
