Male Reduction Mammaplasty – Transaxillary Chicago
Male reduction mammaplasty is a procedure used to take away the excess tissue that makes male breasts appear enlarged. There are a number of potential techniques available to plastic surgeons for this procedure.
During a consultation with your plastic surgeon, he or she may recommend the transaxillary incision. Located in the armpit, this incision point is often chosen for male reduction mammaplasty when liposuction is the only needed tissue-removal method. After the incision is made, a tube called a cannula can be inserted and maneuvered to remove the excess fatty tissue.
