Male Breast Reduction (Gynecomastia) in Fort Worth

Male Breast Reduction (Gynecomastia) in Fort Worth

Gynecomastia is a condition when a man develops excess fat and glandular tissue in his chest, forming prominent breasts. Our male breast reduction (gynecomastia) surgery in Fort Worth can give you a natural-looking chest—and no one will even be able to tell that you had surgery! More men are getting plastic surgery every year and our talented plastic surgeons can give you the contours to make you proud of your physique.

Are You a Candidate for Male Breast Reduction Surgery?

For some men, gynecomastia is genetic. The condition can also be the result of low levels of the male hormone testosterone or an imbalance between testosterone and the female hormone estrogen. Gynecomastia can also be a side effect of certain drugs, such as anabolic steroids, anti-anxiety medications, and antidepressants.

You could be a good candidate for gynecomastia correction if you are in good physical and mental health and suffer from no significant medical issues. You should also be at a healthy weight, since this procedure is not a substitute for weight loss. We will also need to know about any medications and supplements you are taking. Patients should refrain from smoking before surgery and during recovery to aid the healing process, and you should be able to maintain a positive outlook with realistic expectations.

Our Male Breast Reduction Procedure

While it is a relatively quick procedure, you will be under general anesthesia for gynecomastia surgery in Fort Worth. Our talented plastic surgeons will treat your gynecomastia through either liposuction or excision surgery. The decision about which technique to use will be made in consultation with your wishes and our determination about how much excess tissue and sagging skin is present.

Liposuction Technique

We can use liposuction if you have good skin elasticity and only a modest amount of fat to be removed. During this procedure, we make one or more tiny incisions on each side of your chest. These small incisions allow us to suck away the fat using a thin cannula that leaves only minimal scarring.

Excision Technique

A larger incision is required when we need to remove substantial amounts of excess tissue and skin. The incision is often made along the bottom edge of your breast and should heal as a thin scar concealed in your chest’s natural contours. If your nipple needs to be repositioned, we can also make an incision around the areola. Consult with your surgeon about whether the liposuction and excision techniques can be combined for a more dramatic result.

Recovery and Results

After your surgery, we will dress your incisions with bandages and fit you with a compression garment to control swelling and support your chest during recovery. A small tube may be inserted temporarily to drain excess fluid. We will give you specific instructions for recovery, including how to care for your incisions, your use of medications, particular concerns to be aware of, and when to schedule a follow-up visit. You should see immediate results, with only minor swelling and bruising and minimal pain. We recommend you wait a few days before resuming light activity, and a few weeks before resuming more intensive activity.

The result of a Fort Worth male breast reduction should be long-lasting; and your new look will enhance your self-image and confidence! However, your chest can change over time due to aging, weight fluctuations, hormonal factors, and gravity, so staying healthy and taking care of yourself can help to prolong your results.
