What Is Gynecomastia?

Gynecomastia is the abnormal development of tissue and/or glands in the male breast. The condition is fairly common in adolescents and in the elderly, but overdevelopment of breast tissue can occur in men of any age due to medications, hormone imbalances, obesity, and other factors. Gynecomastia might not be a medically urgent condition, but you’re certainly not alone if you’ve found that it has had a somewhat noticeable impact on your self-confidence or overall quality of life. Gynecomastia surgery with Dr. Rogers is an ideal way to regain your sense of masculinity and enjoy an enhanced sense of satisfaction with the body you see in the mirror each day. If you would like to learn more about how gynecomastia surgery can benefit you, reach out to Dr. Rogers in Beverly Hills and set up your initial consultation with a helpful member of his team today.

Creating Your Sculpted Look

Available Modalities

Potential treatments for gynecomastia include surgery, liposuction, and non-surgical ultrasound massage, or a combination of these procedures. Liposuction and ultrasound massage can address fatty tissue buildup in the breast, and surgery can effectively be used to reconstruct the contour of the chest.

Your Custom Plan

During your consultation, Dr. Rogers will learn about your personal goals and call upon his extensive experience to craft a treatment plan that is tailored directly to you and customized around your unique needs. Dr. Rogers’ commitment to innovation often enables him to combine treatment modalities for truly comprehensive treatment plans.

Peace of Mind

Your consultation will also give you a chance to ask Dr. Rogers any questions you might have about your upcoming procedure. He’ll educate you on the surgical techniques he’ll be using, how long you can expect the procedure to take, and what you’ll experience when the treatment is over. Our goal is your complete and lasting peace of mind.

The Exciting Benefits of Gynecomastia Surgery

Our patients love gynecomastia surgery primarily for its ability to offer an effective solution to a cosmetic frustration that can sometimes be tough to combat with conventional methods like diet and exercise. Eliminating the presence of excess breast tissue with gynecomastia surgery can also offer the following exciting benefits:

  • Improved appearance
  • Improved clothing fit
  • Increased self-confidence
  • Improved exercise tolerance
  • Improved physical comfort
  • Long-lasting results

Who Qualifies for Gynecomastia Procedures?

The eligibility criteria for gynecomastia procedures depend on several factors, including the patient’s overall health, the severity of their gynecomastia, and the underlying cause of the condition. Generally, patients who are in good overall health and do not have any underlying medical conditions that would increase the risk of complications are considered good candidates for the procedures.

If the condition is caused by hormone imbalances, such as during puberty or as a side effect of certain medications, hormone levels must be stabilized before surgery can be performed. Patients with substantial breast enlargement that does not respond to lifestyle changes such as diet and exercise may be considered for surgery. Patients who experience significant emotional distress or low self-esteem due to their condition may also be candidates for surgery.

Your Gynecomastia Surgery Experience

The type of anesthesia used for gynecomastia liposuction surgery depends on various factors, such as the patient's medical history. Generally, liposuction can be performed using local anesthesia or general anesthesia. The length of your surgery will vary according to the details of your surgical plan, and Dr. Rogers will ensure that you have a clear idea of what your procedure will entail ahead of the day of your procedure. Generally, liposuction takes about one to two hours to perform, while a surgical approach can take closer to two or four hours.
