CORRECTING THE OVER-RESECTED MALE¬†BREASTS WITH FAT INJECTIONS
Revisional male breasts reduction surgery can take on many forms.¬† One of the most common complications of gynecomastia breast surgery is over-resection of tissue.¬† This is very easy to do and sometimes patients desire to have an even over-flattened appearance.¬† Fat injection is one of the most common ways to fill in volume loss.¬† The Sydney Coleman technique of fat preparation in an injection has become very popular for volume filling with your own tissue.¬† The photograph that¬†is shown here¬†is a¬†picture of fat after it has been taken, then centrifuged and then harvested for injection into a volume defect.¬† Surprisingly, the fat replacement has a large amount of ‚Äútake‚ÄĚ.¬† The fat actually gains vascularity and becomes a living structure.
Patients who have had over-resection of their glandular or fatty tissue in their¬†male breasts¬†may be good candidates for fat injections for refilling the area.
Below are two patients of Dr. Delgado’s that have had fat injections along with their surgery done at his Marin Cosmetic Surgery Center in the Bay Area near San Francisco.
Dr. Delgado has vast experience with gynecomastia breast surgery as well as revisional surgery that incorporates approximately 30% of his gynecomastia practice.
