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.
"overdue five star review for Vanessa and the friendly staff. Incredibly satisfied with my procedure done by the talented Vanessa Bennington. I loved how informative she was during my entire visit but still made me feel completely comfortable to ask any questions or concerns that I had. I left feeling so beautiful and happy!!! We did some botox and two syringes (one voluma, one juvederm) to help enhance my cheeks, lips and chin. It’s been nearly 7 months and I’m still happy with my results. I may be due for my second treatment of botox but that’s expected. I wouldn’t even waste anymore time, look no further. Highly recommend her!!!"- C.L. / Yelp / Sep 03, 2021
"It’s always scary going to sometime new for Botox but they made me feel super at ease here. They are kind, knowledgeable and make you feel super comfortable. I will continue to go here regularly."- M.S. / Google / Sep 03, 2021
"Vanessa is the most talented injectionist!!! She is an absolute artist. Trust me ladies if you are considering treating yourself to a little refresher she is THE person you want to see! I’ve been seeing her for over a year now and couldn’t be happier! She is extremely knowledgeable and will be honest with you regarding the best treatment options."- K.T. / Google / Aug 06, 2021
"I love Dr. Hicks & her staff. She took the time to listen to me and really tried to help me. The staff is very friendly and helpful as well. I've already recommended them to my friends... and I've left my former cosmetic/dermatology group...and no going back!"- A.M. / Google / Jul 30, 2021
"Dr. Hix-Hernandez and her medical team were absolutely amazing. I recently had a BBL with lipo done and the experience was seamless and everyone was so attentive to my needs. I chose Beleza per a family member’s recommendation and after tons of research. It is so important to stress to ensure you do research and select and board certified plastic surgeon if doing a BBL. Dr. Hix-Hernandez had the credentials and experience I was seeking in a surgeon. I will absolutely recommend Beleza as they were also extremely prompt and professional from beginning to end. Sincerely, A very happy patient 🍑🍑"- M.M. / Google / Jul 24, 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.
