Walnut Creek gynecomastiaMany San Francisco Bay Area men who have gynecomastia can eliminate the problem with a simple surgery.

Gynecomastia is the medical term for over-developed male breasts and affects an estimated 50% of men, especially age 50 and higher. Gynecomastia is common during infancy, puberty and aging, and it is also inherited.

What Causes Gynecomastia?

Patients can develop gynecomastia as a result of genetic factors, where patients are simply naturally predisposed to develop this cosmetic issue. Aging can also be a factor, as can environmental factors, lifestyle choices, various health conditions, certain medications, and recreational drugs.

Good Candidates for Gynecomastia Surgery

The ideal candidates for gynecomastia surgery are patients who want to give their chest a more masculine appearance by getting rid of excess fat, glandular breast tissue, and loose skin. Good patients have already tried non-surgical methods of male breast reduction without satisfactory results.

To help lower the chance of surgical complications, patients should be in good overall health. Keeping expectations realistic is also advised.

To help speed up the recovery process, patients are advised to cut back or quit habits like drinking or smoking.

Your Consultation

Patients can learn more about what gynecomastia is and the surgical options available to them when they schedule a consultation. The details regarding the procedure will be explained, and patients will be asked questions about their medical history.

The Procedure

To treat gynecomastia, excess breast tissue is removed during surgery. Soft tissue can be removed simply with liposuction, but where there is more breast tissue (which feels firmer), surgical excision will be required. This may be performed through an incision underneath the areola, extending out on each side or perhaps an even more extensive incision, depending on the amount to be removed.

    Breast Augmentation

    Breast augmentation, or breast enlargement, is a surgical procedure to enhance the size and shape of a woman’s breast. Breast enlargements are popular for women who have gone through pregnancy, have uneven breast sizes, or simply feel their breasts are too small. The best candidates for breast implant augmentation are healthy women who are looking for improvement, not perfection, in the way they look.
