Grade 4 Gynecomastia Surgery for Huge Moobs
Posted by Dr. Dadvand February 9, 2023
Gynecomastia is a condition that affects thousands of young men each year. Characterized by the enlargement of male breast tissue, sometimes referred to as moobs, gynecomastia can cause physical and psychological distress. For some men, grade 4 gynecomastia can be particularly difficult to cope with.
This particular gynecomastia patient struggled with teenage gynecomastia and his gynecomastia developed even more over the years. In recent times, though, he’s lost a significant amount of weight, making gynecomastia surgery for his huge moobs very feasible to ensure a more contoured masculine chest transformation.
His grade 4 gynecomastia required a more complex treatment than mild cases; surgical intervention! A double mastectomy and free areolar grafts helped shape a more masculine contour. In this case, the correct thickness of the nipple and the placement thereof is essential. Here I rely on my many years of experience as a gynecomastia surgeon to ensure the correct thickness of the nipple graft so that it can survive once grafted onto the chest. I also place Jackson Pratt (JP) drains to prevent the accumulation of fluid. These drains are usually ready to come out 5 or 6 days post-op.
While many factors contribute to grade 4 gynecomastia such as hormones, weight gain, or even certain medications, help is available! With this particular gynecomastia patient, a combination of gynecomastia and significant weight loss required skin excision, smaller areolas, and better nipple placement to achieve desired results. A more masculine chest contour!
