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.
"Miracle maker - wanted a breast reduction since I was a teenager - I had wanted a breast reduction since I was a teenager. I’m now 60. I lived with pain, discomfort, rashes, wrong fitting clothes, low self esteem, hurting ever day, etc. I decided it was time for me. I had seen Dr. Hix results in other patients and how caring she was. She talks to you understands what YOU want. Her staff is amazing I had my breast reduction done. Was beyond pleased, so glad I picked Dr. Hix and highly recommend her and her team. I will use her again. I absolutely adore her."- A. / RealSelf / Apr 12, 2022

"Nancy is the literal best at lip fillers! I’ve been having her do my lips for a couple years now and she is so precise about where and how she injects! The lips never look ’overdone’ but look great and full! Krystal is also amazing with laser treatment and cool sculpting, she makes sure you’re comfortable and taken care of!

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.
