Video Transcript
Hi, I’m Larry Schlesinger. I’m a board-certified plastic surgeon from Honolulu, Hawaii and today we are going to do a gynecomastia (male breast reduction surgery) on Michael.

We are going to draw on him first to identify the areas that we’re going to liposuction. What Michael has is fortunately mostly fat. So we’ll be getting this out. Put your arm down. And you’ll find, Michael that the liposuction here is pretty pain less, back toward the ribs, it gets a little sorer. And then ultimately we’re going to make an infra-areola incision. And the areola will get smaller once the fat’s gone because the fat’s what’s stretching it out.

Mike, I hope you don’t mind if I suck a little of this fat out too, while I’m at it?

Michael: No

I can take some of that away. I’m not going o take all of it but that which encroaches up upon the chest tissue. We’re gonna kind of get rid of that a little but not a lot.

OK, well you’re going to have to get new shirts when we’re done with this. Any questions, Mike? Any questions Sarah? OK, See you later. Yes, sir.
