Male Breast Reduction also known as Gynecomastia surgery is a surgical treatment used to reduce the size of male breasts enlarged because of excess glandular tissue. This condition is called gynecomastia and is very common—but, it can become concerning, causing many men to feel self-conscious about the appearance of their chest. Gynecomastia surgery with top-rated plastic surgeon Dr. Azouz at his Dallas, Texas office can help the patient reduce the amount of breast tissue and provide a more masculine and attractive appearance.

What is Gynecomastia?

Gynecomastia is a physical condition in which a man’s breast tissue is enlarged due to a glandular issue or simply because of stubborn fat. Excess breast tissue can also occur when there is an imbalance in hormones (such as a lack of testosterone), which can happen as men age. While gynecomastia is not anything to be concerned about health-wise, many men find this condition to be emotionally harmful and embarrassing.

What causes Gynecomastia?

There are a lot of factors that can contribute to gynecomastia; however, the exact cause is not known. The main triggers for this condition are puberty and, other times, hormonal imbalances. Some external and medical factors that can also cause gynecomastia are:

  • Weight gain, which can result in more estrogen production
  • Medications for an unrelated condition
  • Steroid use
  • Hormone replacement and therapy
  • Despite these triggers, the cause of gynecomastia is almost always not the fault of the patient and is caused by a genetic inheritance

Who is a candidate for Gynecomastia treatment?

While abnormal development of male breasts is typically not caused by a serious medical illness, it can be a side effect of some medical issues. Because of this, it is important to see a physician to discuss possible causes before having a consultation for gynecomastia treatment. If your gynecomastia is not caused by a medical condition or hormonal imbalance, you may be a good candidate for male breast reduction. Other factors that may indicate that you are a good candidate for the procedure are:

  • The soft, fatty breast tissue in your breast area has not responded to a healthy lifestyle
  • You would like to correct asymmetry in your breasts
  • You have maintained a healthy and stable weight
  • The size of your breasts is causing you physical and social discomfort
  • You no longer use steroids

What to expect during Male Breast Reduction in Dallas

The extent and process of the procedure will vary depending on your desired changes and Dr. Azouz’s professional opinion on achieving your goals. Through precise and minimalistic incision(s), Dr. Azouz reduces the breast size by removing excess breast tissue and skin, flattening, and enhancing the chest contour. In many cases, the position and size of the areola may be altered to develop a more natural appearance.

Gynecomastia anesthesia options

Most of the time, Gynecomastia surgery in Dallas is performed under local anesthesia with sedation. The patient will feel no pain during the gynecomastia surgery. Once the Gynecomastia procedure has been finished the patient can go home. Not all patients are suited to local anesthesia. The anesthesia options will be determined at the time of consultation at our office in Dallas.

How long is Gynecomastia treatment recovery?

Patients generally go home the same day. Most patients return to work soon after surgery and wear a compression garment for approximately 4 to 6 weeks to reduce swelling and expedite the healing process. As with any surgical procedure, Dr. Azouz provides aftercare guidelines and a close follow-up appointment to ensure ideal outcomes and healthy recovery.

Combining Gynecomastia and other plastic surgery for men in Dallas

More than ever, men are taking care of the look of their bodies and achieving a more sculpted body. Some patients are interested to know more about other plastic surgery procedures for men they can get done while having Gynecomastia surgery in Dallas. The most popular procedures combined with gynecomastia surgery are abdominal liposuction, tummy tuck, facelift, and rhinoplasty. Dr. Azouz will address plastic surgery options for men at your consultation and plan a tailored treatment to achieve his patients’ aesthetic goals.

Gynecomastia surgery cost

The cost of Gynecomastia surgery depends on the patient’s particulars. There are different factors, such as practice location, surgeon’s fee, anesthesia, surgical facility, lab tests, the extent of the surgery, and post-operative recovery expenses, that are considered to establish a Gynecomastia surgery cost. At the initial consultation, Dr. Azouz will evaluate the patient and provide further information about what a patient needs to know before having Gynecomastia surgery in Dallas, so the patient can make an informed decision.
