: Male Mastopexy Chest Lift Forum - Short Scar Internal Lift
: DrBermant June 16, 2011, 11:59:59 PM
I did another Short Scar Internal Lift Male Mastopexy Chest Lift (http://www.plasticsurgery4u.com/procedure_folder/male_breast_lift/male_mastopexy_surgery.html) with gynecomastia contouring today.  This uses a short scar, contours the gynecomastia, lifts the nipples, but compromises by leaving the loose skin behind to permit a shorter external scar. Although longer than my normal gynecomastia, it is still much shorter than many of the revision surgery scars I do fixing problems seen after surgery done elsewhere.

Male Breast Lift (http://www.plasticsurgery4u.com/procedure_folder/male_breast_lift/pictures_male_breast_lift.html) removes the breast tissue, a band of fibrofat, and then contours the nipples to a higher level. The longer scar is required to permit instruments access to get further away from the incision and repair the fibro fat layer.

Hope this helps,
