What can I do to fix my crater deformity for good?

Tags:man age 35-44 gynecomastia exercise home treatment

Is it possible to fix a crater deformity after gynecomastia by going to the gym? If it is, what types of exercises should I do? Should I do like a bench press type workout? I am not very familiar with the gym so I might get a personal trainer. Does anyone have any recommendations on how to go about finding and gym?

Thank you for the question but photos or an examination is really needed to see what the problem and how it might best be fixed.  So see your surgeon or other expert in the area and compare recommendations

A crater deformity is usually due to over-removal of tissue just under the nipples during gynecomastia surgery.  No amount of exercise will fix it -- the crater needs to be filled in.  There are two options possible:  fat grafting and fat flaps.  

 

After performing hundreds of gynecomastia revision operations, it is my opinion that fat flaps offer an immediate and permanent repair for a crater deformity.

 

You can read more about gynecomastia revision surgery on my website:  https://www.gynecomastianewyork.com/about-the-surgery.asp# and you can also see some before and after photos of successful revisions in the photo gallery.

 

Good luck!
