One of the newest cosmetic surgery trends is more men seeking improvement in their chest’s look through Gynecomastia treatment. Years ago, men thought that the best treatment for male breasts was to lose weight. Now, more men are discovering that cosmetic surgery provides the sculpted, masculine chest they desire.
Gynecomastia surgery with Dr. Azouz is a day surgery and involves an enhanced recovery protocol meaning most patients describe recovery as pain-free. Local blocks, specialized medications, and fluids are used to minimize pain. Dr. Azouz also performs male breast reduction via a drainless procedure, with camouflaged scars and a minimally invasive technique. This avoids the large scars that can be an obvious sign that cosmetic surgery has been performed.
Dr. Azouz has also created customized liposuction cannulas used specifically in gynecomastia surgery. These cannulas allow for the removal of both glandular and fatty tissue with high-definition body sculpting techniques. Dr. Azouz can also directly excise the gland or “breast bud” via a small camouflaged incision. Dr. Azouz explains that removing the gland is imperative to gynecomastia surgery and is often impossible with liposuction alone.
What are the current trends for Gynecomastia surgery in Dallas?
According to The Aesthetic Society, liposuction is the most common cosmetic surgical procedure in men, with breast reduction treatment of gynecomastia as the second most common. More and more men are also choosing to combine their cosmetic surgeries. The most common combinations are:
- Daddy do-over with male breast reduction combined with liposuction of the abdomen
- Daddy do over with male breast reduction combined with tummy tuck
- Male breast reduction combined with eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty)
- Male breast reduction combined with nose surgery (rhinoplasty)
These national trends are in keeping with the trends Dr. Azouz has seen in the Dallas/Fort Worth metroplex.
Is there a “right age” to have gynecomastia surgery?
There is no right age to address male breasts. Dr. Azouz performs the surgery in preteens, teenagers and even in men who are in their sixties and seventies. Most men who are older to report wishing that they had done it sooner.
How does gynecomastia surgery deal with loose skin after removal of the male breast?
Dr. Azouz uses specialized liposuction techniques including tumescent liposuction, power-assisted liposuction, and safe liposuction among other techniques to tighten the skin after gynecomastia surgery. Some patients with gynecomastia and loose skin will require skin tightening procedures or breast lifts at a different time. Dr. Azouz discusses the chance of needing a skin tightening operation in the consultations.
Why are men flying to Dallas for male breast reduction?
Dallas has become a hub for Gynecomastia treatment. More and more men are electing to fly into Dallas from all over the United States because of cutting-edge and novel techniques offered by board-certified plastic surgeons Dr. David and Dr. Solomon Azouz. Both plastic surgeons have extensive experience in male plastic surgery and are Board Certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery (ABPS).
