Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Robert Vitolo has helped many men and boys through his specialized techniques in gynecomastia surgery, and he has seen the life-changing results in his patients. Patients who undergo gynecomastia surgery often report feeling as though a weight is lifted off their shoulders. They’re no longer afraid to wear tight shirts or take off their shirts at the beach or in the gym; in fact, they can’t wait to do it!
In Dr. Vitolo’s technique for the correction of gynecomastia, in over 90% of men with this condition, under general anesthesia and tumescent infiltration, he makes a one-half inch incision near each breast. Using specialized lipo-surgical instruments and the external ultrasonic-assisted liposculpture (EUAL) procedure, he is able to remove both the glandular tissue and associated fat. He then re-contours the chest by removing excess fat on the chest and laterally under the arm so there is a smooth blending of all the tissues of the chest. The excess skin of the breasts contracts after the breast tissue is removed and, as swelling reduces, establishes a normal contour to the chest.
In that small group of men who either have very dense breast tissue or a great deal of excess skin, Dr. Vitolo makes an incision halfway around the lower outer edge of the areola and, using a direct surgical excision technique, excises the dense breast tissue, and removes excess skin if necessary. He then contours the fat of the chest to blend into the excised area of excision.
Dr. Vitolo will work tirelessly to ensure you’re thrilled with your final results. This unique approach to gynecomastia surgery is reflective of his dedication and passion for innovative plastic surgery that focuses on the patient’s health and happiness and with minimal scarring.
