Gynecomastia Treatment in San Diego, CA

What Is Gynecomastia?

Gynecomastia is the medical term for when a male patient has pronounced breasts. This condition is one that can create a female-like chest due to the increase of growing breast tissue. In many cases, gynecomastia is related to an underlying hormonal condition. It can also be caused by certain medications, steroids, weight gain, or genetics. Men with this issue often feel anxious and worried, most commonly in circumstances where the chest is seen, such as at the beach, pool, or in the gym. San Diego, CA plastic surgeon Dr. Jose Rodriguez offers male breast reduction surgery for men who have gynecomastia. This surgical procedure has a very high success rate and is one of the more popular cosmetic treatments for men at Rodriguez Plastic Surgery.

How Does Gynecomastia Surgery Work?

Male breast reduction surgery is performed at our office in San Diego, CA using liposuction. While you are under general anesthesia, Dr. Rodriguez will remove excess fat from the internal chest region. Afterward, any loose skin will be carefully trimmed away to produce a taut look, and then the areola and nipple will be placed into a proper position. For most men, this technique requires a small incision close to where the glandular tissue resides. Once the fat and loose skin have been appropriately handled, Dr. Rodriguez will pull and tighten the remaining skin.

What Are the Benefits of Gynecomastia Treatment?

For the majority of men, gynecomastia, or extra breast tissue, can cause embarrassment and issues with body image. Male breast reduction surgery at Rodriguez Plastic Surgery can help address these problems while providing a range of benefits, including:
