Can You Remove The Whole Gland?

During gynecomastia surgery, we leave a bit of breast tissue under the areola, so that the areola doesn’t sink in. This means that what we leave behind is as important as what we take out. So that’s the reason why the gland can grow back, because we’ve left behind a little bit of tissue to support the areola.

Some patients can get away with removing the whole gland. That’s another question, doctor, can you remove the whole gland? In some cases, yes, but not in everyone. So, if you have thick skin, if you have well-built muscles and very little fat, then probably yes, but I make that judgement during surgery.

But yes, sometimes we can remove the whole gland.
