Gynecomastia Results 

Gynecomastia surgery is designed to eliminate the appearance of man boobs and restore men’s confidence in their bodies. However, this is unfortunately not the experience for all men after their initial gynecomastia surgery. 

It can be deeply upsetting to finally get the courage, finances, and time to get a surgical procedure done, only to be left with unsatisfying results, especially when that procedure was supposed to be a solution to a significant insecurity about your body. For those who have dealt with dissatisfying gynecomastia results, gynecomastia revision is an excellent way to right the wrongs of a past botched procedure. 

Why Choose Dr. Delgado for Your Gynecomastia Revision? 

Dr. Miguel Delgado is a board-certified surgeon and a gynecomastia specialist with over 30 years of experience. He is known for his high-quality results and dedication to his patients. Patient care is a high priority, and Dr. Delgado listens to each patient’s concerns and goals for surgery before discussing which techniques can be used to achieve those goals. 

Around 40 percent of the gynecomastia surgeries Dr. Delgado performs are revision surgeries for patients who don’t like the initial results they got with their first surgeon. Dr. Delgado’s surgeries have a revision rate of around one to two percent, and most of his patients are pleased with their results. You can be confident that you’re in good hands when you have a gynecomastia revision with Dr. Delgado. 

What Can I Expect During My Gynecomastia Revision Procedure?

Each gynecomastia revision procedure is customized to the patient to fit the necessary corrections. A specific treatment plan will be created and discussed during your consultation with Dr. Delgado. In most cases, gynecomastia revision is needed because patients initially only got chest liposuction, and the root cause of their gynecomastia wasn’t treated or because not enough breast tissue was removed during the first procedure. 

Usually, gynecomastia revision involves breast gland excision, which removes the excess breast tissue that causes the appearance of breasts. Many patients who only had liposuction to treat their gynecomastia in their first surgery find that their chest still has breast-like contours. Liposuction can remove excess fat tissues in the chest; however, it alone is often not enough to eliminate man boobs. Gland excision tackles gynecomastia at the root of the problem by removing the extra breast tissue. 

Another common cause for revision surgery is a “crater deformity,” in which the breast gland has been removed, creating a large divot underneath the nipple area. Correcting this issue may involve removing more fat to even out the crater, using fat injections, or adding fatty tissue, also called a “fat flap,” to fill the crater and make the chest symmetrical.

What Will My Chest Look Like After Gynecomastia Revision? 

Gynecomastia revision corrects unsatisfactory results from previous surgery, removes man boobs, and creates masculine chest contours. Dr. Delgado’s expertise in gynecomastia allows him to provide natural-looking and sculpted chests, restoring men’s confidence in their physical appearance.
