Procedure techniques & scars
Gynecomastia surgery is performed using techniques to remove the breast gland from male patients. Dr. Mok will assess size and type of tissue found in the breast. From there, he will determine the best technique for removal, while considering the appearance and shape of the chest. During surgery, an incision will be made. The type of incision depends on the extent of surgery needed. Typically, these incisions are hidden around the edges of the areola (peri-areolar) or along the natural creases of the chest. Dr. Mok will excise the breast tissue and may additionally use liposuction to remove fat in the area and sculpt the chest.
