What is Gynecomastia?

Gynecomastia is the scientific term for male breast enlargement. This condition can cause a feminine chest because of an increase in breast tissue. Often, gynecomastia is caused by an underlying hormonal condition. However, certain medications, steroids, obesity, or genetics can also cause gynecomastia. Men with this condition often feel embarrassed, especially in certain situations, such as by the pool or at the gym. Dr. Brandon-Dzung Mang is proud to offer male breast reduction surgery for men who have gynecomastia. This surgery does have a high success rate, and it is considered one of the more common cosmetic procedures for men at Rejuve Aesthetic Surgery in Tampa, FL.

Is Gynecomastia Surgery For You?

Gynecomastia surgery can help men who have excess breast tissue that doesn't go away with diet and exercise. If you feel embarrassed by the size of your chest and you maintain a healthy lifestyle, you could possibly benefit from gynecomastia treatment at Rejuve Aesthetic Surgery. Teenagers may also benefit from gynecomastia surgery; however, if abnormal breast tissue continues to develop, they may need an additional procedure later in life. During your consultation, Dr. Mang will discuss treatment options, medical history, and your cosmetic goals. Because gynecomastia is often caused by an underlying hormonal issue, he may assess these factors as well.

Surgical Technique

During your gynecomastia surgery, we often use a type of liposuction. While you are under general anesthesia, liposuction helps remove excess fat from the chest. Next, we excise any excess skin or tissue to create a tighter look. To ensure your nipples and areolas look proportionate to the rest of your chest, we reshape and place them into proper position. For most men, this treatment technique requires an incision near the excess glandular tissue. Once Dr. Mang has removed fat and loose skin, he will tighten the remaining tissue.

What To Expect

After completing the surgery, patients will need to wear a compression bandage that helps decrease swelling. If your surgery requires complex surgical techniques, Dr. Mang may insert a drainage tube to assist with fluid retention. Immediately after the procedure, the results are noticeable and most patients feel extremely satisfied. Your incisions will take several weeks to heal and any scars are barely visible. Once you have mostly healed, Dr. Mang can help you determine the best time to start incorporating exercise or weight training into your routine. This will help enhance your surgical results.

Restore your Masculine Chest

If you suffer from the effects of gynecomastia, we invite you to schedule a private consultation with Dr. Mang. Dr. Mang will develop a detailed surgical plan, discuss the cost of male breast reduction, and provide information about financing or payment options. After your gynecomastia treatment, you won't have to keep hiding your chest at the gym and pool. At Rejuve Aesthetic Surgery in Tampa, FL, we have helped many men feel comfortable with their appearance.
