You may notice how your shirt hangs a little differently or how you avoid activities where you might be shirtless. For many men, this is a reality caused by Gynecomastia, a condition where enlarged breast tissue develops. This can be due to hormonal imbalances or simply genetics, but the result is the same, and the impact on confidence and self-esteem can be significant.

Gynecomastia can affect men of all ages, and the emotional toll can be heavy. It can lead to anxiety, social withdrawal, and difficulty participating in physical activities. The good news is, there's a solution. Gynecomastia Surgery can reshape and reduce the size of enlarged breasts, offering men a path toward a more sculpted chest and a renewed sense of confidence. Let's explore how this procedure can help you feel comfortable and empowered in your own body.

What does Gynecomastia Surgery address?

Gynecomastia surgery is typically performed on an outpatient basis, meaning you'll likely go home the same day. Dr. Anton utilizes advanced liposuction techniques to remove excess fat deposits while also addressing glandular tissue if needed. Depending on the extent of correction, minimal incisions may be placed around the areola (the dark circle surrounding the nipple) or in inconspicuous areas. These incisions are strategically placed to minimize scarring. After sculpting the chest tissue, Dr. Anton will carefully close the incisions and apply dressings to support healing.

For men struggling with the physical and emotional effects of Gynecomastia, surgery offers a path toward a more confident and fulfilling life. This minimally invasive procedure aims to reshape and reduce the size of enlarged breast tissue, restoring a more masculine chest contour. Here's a breakdown of what Gynecomastia Surgery can address:

  • Reduced Breast Size: The primary goal is to remove excess tissue, whether it's fatty deposits or glandular tissue. This significantly reduces the appearance of enlarged breasts, creating a more balanced and defined chest.
  • Improved Chest Contour: Surgery can address unevenness or sagging caused by excess tissue. By sculpting the chest area, the procedure aims to achieve a flatter, firmer appearance.
  • Reduced Nipple Protrusion: In some cases, Gynecomastia can cause the nipples to protrude outwards. Surgery can correct this by repositioning the nipples for a more natural look.

Benefits of Gynecomastia Surgery

You can feel comfortable and confident in your own skin. That's the life-changing impact Gynecomastia Surgery has for many men. Beyond the physical transformation, the procedure offers a range of benefits that extend to your emotional well-being and overall quality of life. Here's what you can expect:

Am I a candidate for Gynecomastia Surgery?

Gynecomastia Surgery can be a transformative experience, but it's important to understand if you're a good candidate for the procedure. A good candidate for Gynecomastia Surgery has one or more of the following concerns:

  • Dissatisfaction with the size and shape of breasts in proportion to the rest of the body
  • Breast size changes very little or not at all with weight loss
  • Breasts sit in a low position and areolas point downward.

If your enlarged breast tissue has persisted for a significant period despite weight loss or hormonal changes, surgery can offer a permanent solution. Feelings of self-consciousness, anxiety, or depression can affect daily life due to Gynecomastia, and surgery's ability to address these emotional burdens is a strong indicator that it could be beneficial.

Gynecomastia Surgery Results

Immediately following surgery, some swelling and bruising around the chest area is completely normal. This will gradually subside within the first few weeks. Bandages will be applied to support healing, and Dr. Anton will provide detailed instructions on caring for your incision sites.

As the swelling fades, you'll start to witness the sculpted definition of your new chest emerge. However, it's important to remember that final results can take several months to become fully visible. This is because tissues continue to settle and refine during this period. The wait might feel long, but the transformation is worth it.

Gynecomastia Surgery is performed under general anesthesia and can take between 2 to 4 hours depending on how much breast tissue and skin needs to be removed. All incisions are internal; there are no external sutures. The incisions are made around the Areola area.

Most patients wake from surgery feeling groggy, tired and just wanting to rest. You will be wrapped in a compression bandage and some mild to moderate pain is to be expected, however, it is usually alleviated by prescribed pain medication. Overall, our Newport Beach Gynecomastia Surgery patients feel their surgery was less painful than anticipated and are able to discontinue their pain medication after 4 to 5 days.

Gynecomastia SurgeryFrequently Asked Questions

In some cases, yes. If your Gynecomastia is mild and caused by hormonal fluctuations or weight gain, lifestyle changes like exercise and weight management might be effective. However, surgery offers a more permanent solution for cases of persistent chest enlargement.

The cost of Gynecomastia Surgery can vary depending on factors like the complexity of the procedure, surgeon's experience, and facility fees. During your consultation, Dr. Anton will provide a personalized quote based on your specific needs.

If your enlarged breasts are primarily due to excess fat tissue, weight loss can be a good first step. However, it may not address glandular tissue enlargement, a common cause of Gynecomastia. Consulting with Dr. Anton can help determine if weight loss alone is sufficient or if surgery is needed to achieve your desired outcome.
