REVIEW OF THE CASE

Gynecomastia surgery is a powerful surgery that can dramatically improve a man's self esteem/confidence.  The procedure takes about 2 hours with a general anesthesia. Dr.  Stephenson is careful to scultpt the chest for a masculine look.  Most of the time this requires the use of liposuction and gland removal.  Dr. Stephenson places the incisions near the arm pit and in the areola.  Liposculpture occurs of the chest and a small portion of the upper abdomen.  SmartLipo® is used to break up the gland and minor skin tightening.  Finally, modest gland removal is needed in most cases.  It is not just removing some fat and stitching things up.
