I had surgery a few months ago and do not like the results. I look like some of the patients you put on your crater page. What is a crater deformity and what can be done?
Consider using my Standard After Gynecomastia Pictures for Revision Surgery
and even better yet, Standard After Gynecomastia Video / Movies
to let others better understand your concerns about your chest.
I was seeing quite a few patients unhappy after surgery done elsewhere with gaping defects under the nipple areola region. A Crater Deformity
is a phrase I coined to describe missing tissue under the areola nipple. This can be accompanied by skin stuck down to the muscle fascia, residual gland, and scar. I have sculpted many such defects and when there are local resources find my Fat Flap Reconstruction
an awesome tool to restore the missing soft tissue defect. You can see examples of this sculpture on my site:Revision of Crater Deformity After Surgery Done in Texas and MassachusettsCrater Defect Revised After Surgery Done in Canada.
The fat flaps close the hole and the other elements of my Dynamic Technique
completed my sculpture.
Unfortunately, not all deformities have decent options as in this extended Crater From Surgery in New Jersey and Failed Revision Surgery Done in New York
Deformity after bad gynecomastia surgery often consists of several elements. Options depend on the original problem, what was done, after surgery care, and many other factors. Surface scars can also detract from a decent result. These are often incorporated into my revision sculpture.
This is usually quite difficult surgery. Look for actual examples of a surgeon's technique before embarking on a possible revision. We help patients explore options during a consultation or a Preliminary Remote Discussion
