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.
"I've been on my mommy makeover journey for quite some time now. But I am over joyed to have finally found the perfect doctor and staff. The Beleza Medspa/Surgery staff and Dr.Hernandez are very welcoming and informative.They are not just after your money they actually care about you and what’s best for you! The way they walked me through every process and answered all the questions I had(and I had a lot of them). I recently had my surgery this past Monday, and I cannot wait to see my final results. Thank you to everyone at the Beleza Medspa/Surgery for making this such a smooth process for me."- S.S. / Google / Apr 27, 2021

"My experience here was excellent. I did my research before deciding where to go for my Botox and filler and ended up choosing Beleza because of their extensively documented processes on their website as well as their very professional social media presence and high ratings on Yelp. They really did not disappoint. Booking ProcessThey were super easy to get ahold of and worked with me and my packed schedule to get me an appointment. It had to be rescheduled on my behalf once and then I ended up calling again because my work schedule allowed for my original appointment time again and they were so understanding on the phone and let me take my original date/time.OfficeThe office is well maintained and very clean and I was greeted warmly right away by Elena, after I filled out my paperwork I was greeted by Nancy. Treatment Nancy took me back and was very thorough during our consult. I am new to Botox/fillers and she has been in esthetics for 24 years so she had a ton of knowledge but what was even better was that she was that she responded to all my questions with care and kindness. I got filler in my cheeks and a bit in my undereye trough, Botox in my 11’s and then a little Botox around the mouth. She explained every step of the way and made me feel very at ease even though I’m not a big fan of needles. Overall my experience here was amazing and I will continue to return for more services with their lovely and knowledgable staff!"- S.M. / Yelp / Jan 22, 2021
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.
