Dr. Anthony’s Surgical Technique
Gynecomastia surgery is done under general anesthesia, and a form of liposuction is utilized to eliminate excess fat tissue from the internal chest region. After liposuction, any lax skin will be carefully trimmed away to produce a natural, taut look, and then the nipple area and surrounding areola will be surgically re-shaped and placed into a proportionate position. For most men, this treatment strategy requires an incision in proximity to where the glandular tissue has formed. After the pockets of fat and excess skin have been appropriately handled, Dr. Anthony will pull together the remaining skin.
