What is Gynecomastia?

Dr. Otto Huertas offers surgical treatment to men who have a condition known by many as "man boobs" but is known medically as gynecomastia. At CosmeticGyn Center, we are accepting new patients for gynecomastia treatment in Dallas, TX. Enlargement of breast tissue can happen at any age as hormone levels advance. Many teenage boys show signs of gynecomastia when puberty starts. Liposuction can be a great option if you're looking for a minimally invasive treatment from our board-certified gynecologist and cosmetic surgeon, Dr. Huertas. This technique involves liquefying and removing the fat using a gentle suction process. Gynecomastia treatment has a high success rate and is one of the more popular cosmetic treatments for men at CosmeticGyn Center.

Who qualifies for Gynecomastia Treatment?

Male breast reduction treatment is reserved for men with visible excess breast tissue that cannot be treated with medications or diet. If you feel bothered by the look of your chest (but are healthy and at a good weight), you may benefit from gynecomastia surgery from Dr. Huertas at CosmeticGyn Center. Male teenagers may also benefit from gynecomastia surgery; however, they may need another procedure later as adults if excess breast tissue continues to develop.

Our Surgical Technique

Fat removal is often part of male breast reduction surgery. While you're under general anesthesia, liposuction removes excess fat tissue from your chest. Afterward, any lax skin will be carefully trimmed away to produce a tighter appearance. You may need to have the nipple-areola complex surgically removed, reshaped, and placed back into position. For most men, this technique requires an incision near where the glandular tissue has formed. After the pockets of fat and excess skin have been appropriately handled, Dr. Huertas will tighten and suture the remaining skin.

What To Expect

Following your gynecomastia surgery, we'll wrap your chest with a medical bandage to help minimize bruising and swelling. For complex cases where a more intricate approach was needed, we may place a small tube for draining to assist with fluid. Typically, the results following this procedure are immediately noticeable, and most men are extremely pleased with the cosmetic change. The incisions made during this procedure take several weeks to heal, and any scars left behind should be barely visible once they've healed. Once your chest has healed, you can get permission from Dr. Huertas to engage in exercise and strength training, which will help accentuate the final results.

Frequently Asked Questions

How much does male breast reduction cost?
Gynecomastia is a medical issue that requires an experienced surgeon. For this reason, Dr. Huertas suggests you focus on how to get your best results rather than the cost. To help make male breast reduction surgery easier to afford, CosmeticGyn Center accepts several payment methods.

How can I tell if I have gynecomastia?
Gynecomastia is an overgrowth of breast tissue in the chest, which can cause swelling, pain, and tenderness. Some patients may have false gynecomastia (also known as pseudogynecomastia) and may respond to diet and exercise. Dr. Huertas suggests patients with false gynecomastia try to lose weight through nutrition and working out before considering surgery. To diagnose this condition, Dr. Huertas can perform a physical exam and order tests, which may include a mammogram, blood tests, or a biopsy to look for other causes like breast cancer or mastitis (infection of the breast tissue).

Can gynecomastia be treated with exercise or pills?
The most effective treatment for gynecomastia is male breast reduction surgery. Currently, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has not approved any medications to treat gynecomastia. For those with this condition, strength training to increase pectoral muscles will not reduce the excess breast tissue and could make the breasts look bigger.

Will this fix puffy or pointy nipples?
Puffy or pointy nipples may be caused by glandular gynecomastia. If you're concerned about this, please talk to Dr. Huertas during your consultation. He can customize your treatment plan to select the best techniques and incision pattern to correct your nipples. He can reduce oversized areolas as well. It's important to be open and honest with Dr. Huertas about your concerns and goals during your consultation so that he can make sure you'll be pleased with your results.
