Some men experience enlarged breast tissue that can create an appearance of having feminine-like breasts. This can cause men to feel very self-conscious as their chest does not fit traditional masculine contours. To help men feel more confident and to get the contours that they desire, the team at Cosmetica Plastic Surgery & Anti-Aging offer a gynecomastia surgery.
A gynecomastia procedure, also called male breast reduction, helps to restore masculine contours of the breast in men who have enlarged breast tissue. This occurrence is rather common in men, affecting around 40%-60% of men in the United States. Many things can cause enlarged breasts such as hereditary factors, hormonal changes, lifestyle, or certain medications. In some severe cases, the breasts can start to sag and stretch the areola. To help men feel more confident in themselves and give them back the freedom to wear clothes and participate in the activities they want, we offer the gynecomastia surgery.
Depending on what is causing the gynecomastia it may go away on its own. If the enlarged breasts are caused by fatty tissue this could go away through diet and exercise. The fatty tissue usually results from diet and obesity. If the enlarged breasts pursue and do not subside then treatment is needed.
Many men who have enlarged breasts are able to resolve this through a treatment option. To find out if you would benefit from treatment it is important to speak with a doctor. At Cosmetica Plastic Surgery & Anti-Aging our team can walk you through the possible causes and treatment plan for the enlarged breast tissue. During the consultation appointment, Dr. Vinas will go over your medical history, examine the breast tissue, and speak with you about what concerns you have to create a treatment plan unique to you.
“Received top notch service and attention! Everyone was very pleasant, professional and administered treatment exactly as requested; with a great outcome. I’ll definitely return for additional treatments.”
The gynecomastia procedure involves small incisions in the lateral chest wall, this way when the incisions heal it will look like a small mole. The excess fat tissue and glandular tissue are removed using liposuction through the small incision. The remaining tissue will be carefully contoured to look more masculine and to meet the desires of the patient. This entire procedure is done using local tumescent anesthesia and IV sedation. At Cosmetica Plastic Surgery & Anti-Aging we make sure our patients are comfortable during each procedure, the sedation techniques reduce any pain or discomfort as well as bleeding.
To make sure that all of our patients are well informed before undergoing their procedure, we will provide complete pre-operative as well as post-operative care instructions. Following the procedure, patients will need to wear a fitted compression garment for several weeks, this helps to accelerate skin tightening and minimize any swelling or bruising. Patients may experience minor pain or discomfort for a few days following the treatment. Many patients return to work after a week following the treatment, but strenuous activity should still be limited.
