Surgical treatment of grade III gynaecomastia.

By C. M. Ward and K. Khalid

Abstract

Gross enlargement of the male breast with skin redundancy and ptosis cannot be effectively managed by subcutaneous mastectomy alone. A technique is described in which the excess breast tissue and skin are excised along a design which allows the nipple-areolar complex, mounted on a vertical deepithelialised pedicle, to lie in a natural position. A horizontal scar is an unavoidable exchange for this particular operation
