What is Gynecomastia?
Gynecomastia isn't a word heard often, but it's simply the term to describe enlarged male breasts. This condition can create a less masculine look for men who have abnormally growing breast tissue. While this condition may be caused by a hormonal issue, it could also be caused by medication, steroids, obesity, marijuana use, or genetics. It's not uncommon for men with this condition to feel anxious, self-conscious, or frustrated, particularly in places, like the gym, pool, or beach. Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Staci Hix-Hernandez offers male breast reduction surgery for men who suffer from gynecomastia at her accredited, on-site OR at Beleza Surgery in Cedar Park, TX.
"Dr. Hix and her staff have been amazing through my whole process. She is a straight shooter and very honest. She will not recommend any surgery you don’t need and will be honest about the possible results. She did a great job on my stomach skin removal and even is doing an additional surgery to fix some dog ears on the sides. I am so happy with their service and my surgery."- D.G. / Google / Mar 16, 2023

"Writing this review solely on my consultation with Dusky. I came in today for a breast augmentation consultation. I indicated on my paperwork that I am currently taking a particular medication. Turns out, I’ll need to wait a year until I’d be eligible for surgery. I was told this before my breast were examined (totally fine and normal protocol I’m sure) but I was nervous that because the consultant knew I wouldn’t be booking my surgery anytime soon, my experience there today would suffer. Well, I was wrong! After my examination, I was told I’d be a better candidate for a breast lift. My consultant was very pleasant and informative and explained the reasoning for this. I never once felt rushed or less important which I totally appreciate. I left there hopeful and excited to start this process again next year. 🙂"- M.G. / Google / Feb 23, 2023
What Can I Expect from Gynecomastia?
While you are under general anesthesia, Dr. Hix-Hernandez typically uses liposuction for gynecomastia to break up and remove excess tissue from the chest wall. In some cases, we may make a small incision near the areola to remove excess glandular tissue. After your procedure at our Cedar Park, TX facility, you will need to wear a medical garment to help decrease any bruising and swelling. Your results should be noticeable almost immediately, but you'll see maximum improvement after about 6 – 12 weeks when the swelling has gone down. Once your healing is complete, you can begin exercising and strength training — someone from our team will help you decide when the right time for this is.
