Today is an unusual day in that we will be performing three out of four surgeries on men.  They will undergo gynecomastic surgery.  Two patients have significant gynecomastia with significant amounts of glandular thickened breast tissue in the retroareolar area and one of the males will also have lipo sculpting of the abdomen, hips and flanks.  The second male has gynecomastia only in one breast which is very atypical; has unilateral left breast enlargement with enlargement if the nipple areolar complex due to the gynecomastic tissue in his left chest.  The third patient is undergoing excisional biopsy of a large tumor growing out of the left deltoid shoulder area.  This male has had increasing growth over the last six months of a 6 x 6 cm tumor that will be removed from the deltoid region.  It is unusual to have three men in one day, as the majority of patients who present for plastic surgery of the body are women.
