About Gynecomastia & Pectoral Etching

A firm, taut, and muscular chest is a hallmark of masculine beauty and strength. If you suffer from gynecomastia and have excess breast tissues in the chest, you may feel self-conscious and unconfident in your appearance. Whether you want to remove excess breast tissues or simply enhance your pectoral muscle visibility, you can benefit from a pectoral etching procedure. Dr. Lisiecki performs a highly personalized gynecomastia surgery and pectoral etching procedure to help you achieve a firm, masculine chest.

What is gynecomastia surgery?

Gynecomastia is a condition that leads to the development of excess breast tissues in men. Gynecomastia surgery is a procedure that involves the extraction of excess fat cells from the breasts, following which the hardened breast tissues are removed via small incisions around the nipples. This procedure removes the excess breast tissues and redistributes the fat cells, helping the patient achieve a masculine chest.

Enhance your chest muscle definition with pectoral etching

Pectoral etching is a surgical procedure that enhances the visibility of the pectoral muscles, making the chest region look firmer, stronger, and more masculine. This procedure involves the careful extraction of excess fat cells from the edges of the pectoralis muscles to create a more visible muscular definition. You can undergo pectoral etching as a standalone procedure or after gynecomastia surgery.

Pectoral etching can do the following:

  • Make the pectoral muscles pop visibly
  • Reduce excess fat cells from the chest region
  • Make the pectoral muscles look firm and taut
  • Increase overall masculine appeal and attraction



Candidates for gynecomastia and pectoral etching:

  • Suffer from gynecomastia, i.e., excess breast tissues in the male chest
  • Want to remove excess fat cells from the chest
  • Want to increase the visibility of the pectoral muscles
  • Are close to the ideal body weight
  • Maintain a healthy lifestyle with regular exercise and a healthy diet
  • Have generally good physical and mental health
  • Are nonsmokers or willing to stop smoking before the procedure
  • Have realistic expectations from the pectoral etching procedure

Dr. Lisiecki’s personalized gynecomastia surgery with pectoral etching technique

The surgeon will perform the pectoral etching procedure. He will make an extremely small incision to insert a cannula and suction away excess fat cells from the edges of the pectoralis muscles and the axilla. Once the fat cells are removed from the region, the chest muscles will look sharper and more defined on the skin’s surface. If you have gynecomastia, your procedure will then include the removal of excess breast tissues. The surgeon will make a small incision around or within the areola to cut away the excess glandular tissues. The procedure usually takes 1-2 hours.

Recovery after pectoral etching surgery

You will have to wear a compression garment on the chest for a few weeks to reduce post-treatment swelling and bruising. You can usually resume work and most of your normal daily activities after 3 to 4 days, but avoid strenuous physical activities for a few weeks.
