A man in his late 20’s who developed mild gynecomastia following a year of Finasteride use. He is 5’ 8 ‘ and 162 lbs. He is shown 2 months after bilateral chest liposuction with the
removal of 200 cc of fat from his right chest, and 250 cc of fat from his left chest, to help balance his asymmetry. External Ultrasound was used initially to soften the fat, and then Power Assisted liposuction was used. Initial fat undermining was performed with a Becker cannula not attached to suction to loosen the fat. A Becker cannula has small “fins” a the tip to help break up the fat.
Then liposuction was performed. At the end of the procedure, fat equalization was performed by again using the Becker cannula to smooth and redistribute the remaining fat. At 2 months, he still has some swelling that will continue to improve over the next 6 months. The liposuction access incisions in the upper chest are at their reddest and most noticeable at 6 weeks after surgery and then will fade and improve over the next 24 months.
