This gynecomastia (gland excision and liposuction) video is by Dr. Jonathan Lebowitz in Huntington, Long Island NY. Gynecomastia is the development of breast tissue on adolescents and males which can be small or large and can appear on only the left or right side breast. Dr. Jonathan Lebowitz recognizes that gynecomastia can cause feelings of embarrassment and awkwardness for adolescents, difficulties in wearing form fitting shirts for adults and a distraction from a chiseled and sculpted chest on body builders. He has over 25 years of experience specializing in gynecomastia and other cosmetic surgeries.
Watch as he performs both Laser Smart Liposuction and excision of the gland on his patient. Dr. Lebowitz uses a combination of both techniques to provide a long-term solution to reducing and reshaping the patient’s chest. The Laser Smart Liposuction melts the fat and tightens the skin around the chest region, followed by the excision of the gland to remove the dense glandular tissue; which cannot be removed by just liposuction. The gland must be removed to complete the surgery since the gland itself is what causes the “enlarged” breast-like appearance.
Dr. Lebowitz is able to perform the Laser Smart Liposuction and glandular excision with a small entry point for the liposuction and a small incision around the nipple for the excision; resulting in inconspicuous scars. He also gently removes the gynecomastia and just enough excess tissue during the glandular excision so that the patient does NOT have a “caved in”, “dented”, or uneven finished appearance. After removal of the gland, he avoids the use of drains by reducing dead space; which is where fluid would normally collect.
The entire gynecomastia procedure, Laser Smart Liposuction and the glandular excision, was performed under local anesthesia, within his private, clean and comfortable operating room in Huntington, Long Island NY. You can see that the patient is awake during the entire procedure, fully relaxed with no pain. The entire surgery can take 1-3 hours to perform, depending if the patient requires just an excision, Laser Smart Liposuction or a combination of both procedures – such as this case.
