Excess fullness of the lower chest is a common condition amongst men of all ages. Gynecomastia, or pseudogynecomastia, can add unwanted projection to the nipples, obscure the visible borders of the pectoralis muscles and even produce a female-like breast fold. In Vancouver, there a few common gynecomastia variations that we see. Bodybuilders present with a firm fullness limited to the retro-areolar area. Regular guys often have a softer fullness that includes a broader area of the chest. Guys that have lost weight often have significant loose skin associated with the unwanted volume.



Liposuction is our preferred treatment option. When the retro-areolar tissue is dense a small direct excision may be required. When there is loose skin secondary to weight loss some skin tightening may be considered.

All procedures take place at a private surgical facility in Vancouver. These are day surgery procedures that are performed under a general anaesthetic. An overnight stay is not required.
