What is Gynecomastia Treatment?

Gynecomastia is characterized by the enlargement of male breast tissue, often resulting in a more feminine chest appearance. This condition can be caused by hormonal imbalances, genetics, or certain medical conditions, and it can lead to emotional distress and a negative impact on self-esteem. It is a common condition that affects men of all ages and can be caused by a variety of factors, including medication use, hormonal imbalances, and obesity. Thankfully, there are practical solutions to address gynecomastia and help you achieve a more sculpted and confident chest. Gynecomastia treatment at Baumholtz Plastic Surgery involves a comprehensive approach to address the overdevelopment of male breast tissue in which our skilled team employs advanced techniques to sculpt a more masculine chest contour. The treatment may involve liposuction to remove excess fat, excision to eliminate glandular tissue or a combination of both methods. This personalized approach ensures a tailored solution to achieve your desired aesthetic outcome.

Gynecomastia Treatment Options

When it comes to addressing gynecomastia, the appropriate treatment options are contingent on the condition's root cause. While certain instances, particularly those linked to puberty or weight gain, may resolve naturally over time, persistent or discomfort-inducing cases necessitate intervention. Treatment avenues include medications designed to diminish breast tissue size and rectify hormonal imbalances contributing to the condition. Surgical interventions, such as liposuction or mastectomy, become viable alternatives when medicine proves ineffective. Additionally, incorporating lifestyle modifications, such as adjustments to diet and exercise routines, can prove beneficial in tackling underlying factors like obesity or hormonal imbalances that may contribute to gynecomastia. At Baumholtz Plastic Surgery, our team evaluates each case individually, tailoring treatment plans to address our patients' specific needs and concerns.

Is Gynecomastia Treatment Right for Me?

Our treatment for gynecomastia in San Antonio at Baumholtz Plastic Surgery is tailored explicitly for men experiencing enlarged or overdeveloped breast tissue, often accompanied by feelings of self-consciousness and diminished confidence. If you're troubled by symptoms such as enlarged breast tissue, swelling or tenderness in the breast area, nipple discharge, or asymmetry in the breast region, our comprehensive treatment may be the solution you seek. Before gynecomastia surgery, Dr. Baumholtz conducts a thorough evaluation, including a physical examination and a medical history review. Additional tests may be ordered to ensure you are a suitable candidate for surgery and to rule out any underlying medical conditions.

Depending on factors like age and medical history, a consultation with your primary care doctor may be recommended. Standard pre-surgery tests for gynecomastia include blood tests to assess overall health and hormone levels, especially for imbalances like low testosterone or high estrogen. Mammograms utilize X-rays to create detailed breast tissue images, determining the amount and location of breast tissue and ruling out conditions like breast cancer. Ultrasounds use sound waves to visualize breast tissue, identifying abnormalities and masses. In some cases, a biopsy may be necessary to rule out cancer or other underlying conditions involving the microscopic examination of a small breast tissue sample.

The Gynecomastia Treatment Procedure What to Expect

Gynecomastia treatment at Baumholtz Plastic Surgery is a comprehensive and personalized approach designed to address each patient's unique needs. Liposuction serves as a key strategy for cases where breast enlargement is primarily due to excess fat. This technique involves making a small incision through which a cannula is inserted, effectively suctioning out excess fat and refining the chest contours for a more masculine appearance. We may also utilize arthroscopic debridement, adapting its functionality to remove dense breast tissue through smaller liposuction incisions, particularly suitable for mild to moderate skin excess.

Gynecomastia Treatment Recovery

You can anticipate minimal downtime after undergoing gynecomastia treatment at Baumholtz Plastic Surgery. Following the procedure, it's normal to experience some swelling, bruising, and discomfort, which can be managed with prescribed medications. Most patients return to light activities within a few days, but strenuous exercise and heavy lifting should be avoided for a few weeks to ensure optimal healing.

We will provide detailed post-procedure instructions, including guidance on wearing compression garments to support the healing process. Results will gradually emerge as swelling subsides, revealing a more contoured and masculine chest. Regular follow-up appointments will be scheduled to monitor progress and address any concerns, ensuring you achieve the best possible outcome and regain confidence in your physique.
