Gynecomastia of aging - male breast surgery by Dr. Bermant
This 60 year old had breasts consisting of excess fat over drooping pectoral muscles. Such breasts are a dynamic problem. The shape changes on movement and movies are a much better way of showing the problem and results after surgery. These results at only 10 days after surgery are too early to judge the true benefits of the 250 cc of fat removed. They do demonstrate the minimal bruising of the chest using the super-wet liposuction technique.
This series of photographs demonstrate the changing shape of the breast before surgery and contour markings I used to guide my liposuction surgery. For problems of male breast that are mainly fat, suction lipectomy alone is the surgical sculpting tool of choice. The remaining breast was of loose drooping pectoral chest muscles. Liposuction does not remove these muscles. To improve this chest further, the patient will have to use muscle exercising and building methods.
