Gynecomastia is the enlargement of breast tissue and fat in the male breast. There are various causes for the enlargement of male breast tissue. One of the common causes is an abnormal fat deposit near the pectoral area of the chest. Another is an abnormal fluctuation and imbalance of female hormones such as estrogen. It can also surface due to over-use of drugs and/or prescription medications. Gynecomastia is also associated with several different medical conditions, which we will go over upon your consultation and appointment with Dr. Mashhadian.
Beverly Hills Gynecomastia Diagnosis
Gynecomastia is diagnosed when there is a presence of excess male breast tissue. Beverly Hills plastic surgeon Dr. Mashhadian can make this diagnosis during your consultation, determine whether you are a good candidate for male breast reduction, and discuss the best treatment plan.
Now that you are more aware of some of the causes for gynecomastia let’s discuss the actual procedural treatment - Male Breast Reduction Surgery. Reduction mammoplasty can be a final resort to men who have tried the medicinal route or are just ready to immediately decrease the abnormal breast tissue. This can be done two different ways.
Treatment for Gynecomastia in Beverly Hills - Male Breast Reduction Surgery
The first way is to perform liposuction on the breast and glandular tissue that is in excess around the nipple and in sitting in the lower portion of the male breast. The liposuction entries are very small and leave little to no scarring. Some patients may also require glandular reduction mammoplasty. This is performed by making a small incision on the lower portion of the areola and removing a small gland in addition to liposuction.
Both are effective and when done together are extremely effective. Dr. Mashhadian is an expert breast reduction surgeon with the training, certification and experience necessary to treat gynecomastia. He will ensure your comfort as well as safety during your time with our practice.
You will be scheduled several follow up appointments to ensure the healing and incision appearance is doing well. The results of male reduction mammoplasty are instant and can be seen immediately following surgery.
