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.

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.
