Gynecomastia is a common conditon in males where there is a higher amount of breast tissue than is usual. Gynecomastia surgery, or mammaplasty, is performed to reduce the amount of excess tissue, as well as any excess skin. This surgery helps to acheive a flatter, firmer chest that is more typical for males. In some cases where the patient has a large amount of excess breast tissue they may also choose to have the areolar moved to a more central position, or reduced in size. As you can see this patient achieved a beautiful result with scarring that will fade over time and give him greater confidence!
