The goal for liposuction of the male breast is simple: Improve the patient’s physical appearance by removing as much fat as possible while avoiding any damage to skin or muscles. Liposuction of the male breast is one of the four areas on men most commonly treated by liposuction.

Sadly I did go to the site that the link directed. Perhaps it is such misconceptions that Liposuction For Weight Loss
that led to so many patients asking for my help to revise the nightmares created by those doctors. It is all about understanding the Anatomy of Gynecomastia
which consists of Gland, Fat, and Skin. Start out with this forum post about Liposuction Does Not Help With Gland of Gynecomastia
. There are many such examples throughout our Encyclopedia of such complications from patients coming to us for help after surgery done elsewhere. Part of the misconception is that some seem to prefer to look at the world with blinders on, looking at only part of the problem and view limited before after pictures. Others just do not look at how tissues move. That is why I evolved a series of Standard Before After Gynecomastia Pictures
to more critically evaluate problems, results, and path to get there. There were so many requests for help after liposuction only treated gynecomastia, I reviewed a few years of requests and found over 500 of them! Here is one such entry page to part of that project: Correcting Complaints After Gynecomastia Texas - Unhappy After Liposuction Alone
. There are many other similar pages here, try our Plastic Surgery Search Engine
and type in Gynecomastia Liposuction.
I preferred to use liposuction on almost every case of gynecomastia as a component of my Dynamic Technique
after targeting the gland first with techniques that actually were able to manage this firmer tissue. This is the opposite of what was in the literature suggesting liposuction first and then trying to manage the gland. The reasons for change that I made was that I was interested in getting the best results for my patients contours and waiting for the gland last meant resources for dealing with the gland were no longer available for contouring.
Compromise Gynecomastia Surgery is just that, something that does not really look very good. Global Body Fat will result in Male Breasts, it is just where fat goes as is found in Male Body Fat Distribution
, liposuction alone just does not look very good, does not move very well and is not solving the major issues that there is too much global body fat all over. Here is one of many such posts here about this topic: Gynecomastia & Weight Forum - Frustrated With Weight Loss Breasts Not Going Away
As a surgical sculptor I preferred to use the coarse tools of body contouring first, such as weight loss. I suggested reserving the plastic surgery for refinement to achieve the best possible results. When a patient was not going to lose weight, then compromise gynecomastia surgery was an option, one cannot take a patient with global body fat and make the whole body look like there is not that layer of remaining fat. Carefully look at such claims of success using that method. The videos of the remaining fat moving after surgery, something I did not find on such sites I looked at, are the most revealing if you cannot see the results in person. After major weigh loss loose skin and low nipples become enough of an issue that might need to be dealt with. That is why weight loss first was such a powerful tool.
Hope this helps,
