41 year old male first came to Dr. Bermant 3 years ago unhappy after gynecomastia surgery done in New Jersey. He failed our Red Flag test with breast pain and breast size getting bigger. Dr Bermant sent him on for Endocrinology evaluation and stabilization. He had the problem stabilized but then had revision surgery in New York. He returned to our office complaining now of contour distortion flexing muscles, deformed chest, atrophied lost muscle mass injured during surgery, and saying he was much worse off than when he was here. He has attempted to rebuild the muscles with therapy and brought a series of Male Mammograms and MRIs of his chest documenting the deformity spanning the 2 prior operations.

Flexing Muscles and Arms Up Overhead Demonstrate Deformity of Extended Crater Defect.

Progression of still pictures (with pectoral muscles relaxed) deceptively looks like satisfactory outcome. Starting before any surgery, to after New Jersey primary gynecomastia surgery, and ending with revision surgery done in New York seems to show improvement. Move your cursor over the smaller images to see the changes.

Excessive tissue removal, techniques that excessively injure tissues, surgeon's skills, inadequate scar care, after gynecomastia surgery compression garments, and patient's tendency to scar all can be factors. This is why Standard After Gynecomastia Photos should show muscles flexing and arms up over head. As demonstrated on this page, Standard Gynecomastia Movies are even more demanding and demonstrate a surgeon's sculpture skills.

Managing a crater deformity by making it bigger and wider is no answer for a result to look good on animation. For reconstruction of a crater defect, local resources are needed. Options that did exist after the first operation when the patient was examined, were no longer available after they were removed by the liposuction of the second surgeon.

Picture almost 2 years after revision. Note the very long areola scar well inside the edge of the pigmentation. Dr. Bermant prefers to use a much smaller scar for his gland access.

At 5 feet 8 inches, he weight 187 pounds with a body fat of 17%.

Revision Surgery 175cc 125cc "aggressive liposuction" with "modified custom liposuction cannula" followed by excision of "residual dense breast tissue and or scar tissue"

The endocrine issues had resolved. The tenderness and breast growth were no longer factors. However, the local fat resources he had at his visit before the New York surgery were now gone. His Crater Deformity Complication from the first surgery was now extended. The defect now was well beyond that seen in this Crater Defect from Texas, where remaining fat could be moved into the defect. Revision Gynecomastia Surgery was no longer an option. Here is another liposuction gynecomastia with bad scar by another doctor.
