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.
"I had breast surgery done from Dr. Mang 17 years ago, the results were amazing. I had minimal scarring. He and his staff followed up with me amazingly. Fast forward almost 20 years later, due to weight loss, weight gain, 2 more children and poor skin due to heritertly, I went back to Dr. Mang for another surgery. Again the results were perfect. In addition to excellent work, he checks on you PERSONALLY after your surgery. He is a talented surgeon. I again received exactly what I was looking for. Some people expect plastic surgeons to make them look like the housewives of Beverly Hills.. this isn’t going to happen ladies..However a good Dr. WILL create the best look and fit for you and what you have to work with."- A.L. / Google / Jun 09, 2020
"I always wanted to try out Botox, just a chicken committing because I don’t like needles; A few of my coworkers went with me to ease the idea of doing it alone.It’s important to note, they used clean and individual packages of needles for each of us and numbing cream with betadine on the spots I wanted to be injected with the filler. The process wasn’t bad at all, especially since they were doing a $9/unit special accompanied by a glass of Rose - how can I say no to that? When Dr. Mang injected my forehead and pulled out the needle, you can hear a small crunch; this is normal and Dr. Mang explained if you don’t hear this sound, it is not being done correctly. I wouldn’t have done this or brought other people unless it was anyone else than fellow Yelper, Anna M., because I trust her so much.Thank you for the opportunity - even though I got 10 units vs. 50 units of botox compared to a coworker - I feel that it was effective to iron out my wrinkles, even though I know I have minimal amount heading into my 30s. This was my X-mas gift to myself!I saw firsthand the difference for people who do have a lot of wrinkles & are young, so IMO botox is such an amazing product to help smooth out wrinkles."- J.X. / Google / Mar 01, 2020
"Dr. Brandon Mang has recently relocated his Pinellas Park office to South Tampa on Gandy Boulevard. I normally receive Botox injections from a nurse practitioner at a nearby practice. The people who have injected my Botox in the past have been quick in their process...almost too quick. Dr. Mang takes the time to discuss your areas of concern, applies numbing cream, and then marks these areas with Betadine to ensure no infection and proper placement. I chose Dr. Mang because he is an expert in his field. He and his staff are professional and friendly. Dr. Mang’s genuine bedside manner with his patients is truly one of the best I have ever encountered. He takes the time to answer all your questions and discusses the advantages and disadvantages of the procedures you are inquiring about. I highly recommend Dr. Brandon Mang for all your plastic and cosmetic surgery needs."- A.M. / Google / Feb 20, 2020

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.
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.
