Behind the Scenes: Steroid-Induced Gynecomastia

 

“So I just finished this gynecomastia surgery – large excisions! This is steroid-induced gynecomastia and you can see this tissue here – really thick! This was never going to come out with liposuction. It took a very meticulous dissection but he’s going to have great results, there’s a big difference in his chest already.”

This video shows the results of gynecomastia surgery in a patient who cycled steroids. Steroids are one of the most common causes of gynecomastia, or increased breast tissue in men. The surgery requires meticulous dissection to remove most of the breast tissue and restore a masculine chest contour. Liposuction generally does not work for this type of gynecomastia!
