Gynecomastia can lead men to feel self-conscious of their appearance and have a debilitating effect on their lives. It can lead to men trying to hide their chest and impact their day-to-day comfort and activities. For men who have received gynecomastia surgery and are unsatisfied with the results, the effect can be similarly difficult. 

When to Get Revision Surgery

There are a number of reasons why a patient would want to pursue a revision or second gynecomastia surgery. Some of the most common include the breast tissue now has a depression or deformity, or only liposuction was previously used. The most common reason being the patient still has the look of gynecomastia. Many patients feel that the tissue was not corrected enough during their first surgery, and they still have a female breast appearance. If you are unhappy with the results of your previous surgery, contact Dr. Delgado’s office with your questions or to schedule a consultation.

How Is Revision Surgery Performed?

Any revision surgery is complicated, and gynecomastia is no exception. Scar tissue left from the original surgery makes the procedure much more complex to navigate. For patients who just require a minor “touch-up,” liposuction alone can be used. For those who require a more thorough change, excess skin or scar tissue will also need to be removed. The surgical approach will vary depending on the scar tissues, issues with the last surgery, and your aesthetic goals.

Who Is a Candidate?

Ideal candidates for gynecomastia surgery should be in good overall health. They should have undergone gynecomastia surgery previously and are fully healed from the earlier procedure. It is vital for candidates also to have realistic expectations about the outcome of their procedure.
