Not satisfied with the results of a previous gynecomastia surgery? Dr. Schlesinger can help
When performed by an experienced plastic surgeon who understands his patients’ needs, male breast reduction surgery almost always achieves a rousing success the first time around. However, on occasion, a man isn’t happy with what he sees after surgery. Perhaps the original surgeon did not remove enough excess tissue and the chest still appears too full. While very rare, it’s also possible that the tissues didn’t heal as intended and either the chest shape or the scar needs improvement.
In this case, a revision surgery with Dr. Schlesinger can help correct the issue and achieve a result that meets or exceeds the patient’s expectations. Having performed more than 20,000 plastic surgery procedures in Hawaii alone, Dr. Schlesinger has an intricate understanding of what is required not only to identify challenges with male breast reduction, but to overcome them while improving upon the previous result. Hawaii male breast reduction patients turn to Dr. Schlesinger when other surgeons have been unable to achieve the chest shape they desire—and deserve.
I have had surgery for gynecomastia two times before I finally went to Dr. Schlesinger. I almost gave up, but decided to try one more doctor. Dr. Schlesinger changed my life by accomplishing something I thought was impossible to fix. My chest is completely flat and I don’t feel embarrassed to take my shirt off now. I am very satisfied with the outcome from surgery. I would definitely recommend Dr. Schlesinger to men seeking help for gynecomastia. - RealSelf
Dr. Schlesinger explains: why do some men need gynecomastia revision surgery?
The gynecomastia revision procedure & recovery
Dr. Schlesinger uses many of the same tools and techniques for revision male breast reduction as for a primary procedure. In many cases, performing additional liposuction to fully remove fat and/or glandular tissue and sculpt the chest can achieve the desired result. Sometimes, additional tissue excision is needed as well. Dr. Schlesinger will discuss his recommended approach during your consultation.
Recovery after a gynecomastia revision is typically very similar to male breast reduction as well. Patients can typically return to work within one week (one to two weeks for more strenuous jobs), and can resume exercise after two to three weeks.
