Abstract

Gynecomastia may result in psychological problems because the presence of a "feminized" chest changes the male body contour, altering the masculine ideal of virility. Currently, surgical techniques described for the correction of gynecomastia are for some patients associated with aesthetically unacceptable scars, sometimes less tolerated than the chest deformity itself. The case of a 20-year-old man who underwent the authors' male chest body-contouring technique with minimal visible scars is described.
