You're ready to make the move. The move to gynecomastia surgery, so that you can make a move without feeling self-conscious. But you've heard the move may involve a new groove--liposuction. What do you tell your friends? Liposuction as a gynecomastia treatment is nothing to worry about, and doesn't cause excess scarring.
In general, surgeons try to minimize scarring so that you can go shirtless or wear a light shirt--scars typically fade within six months. Tumescent liposuction will remove excess fat from one or both of your breasts during gynecomastia surgery. A small scar around the nipple as well as scars where rods were inserted will be the only marks to indicate you've had gynecomastia treatment--as if a reduction in cup size weren't enough. You don't have to tell anyone you're having lipo and gynecomastia surgery. It's up to you. Plastic surgery is supposed to make you confident, so you can make the move and be in the groove.
