Frequently Asked Questions about Gynecomastia

Questions about Gynecomastia

Gynecomastia is a medical term that describes the swelling of breast tissue in males. At the Gynecomastia Center of Los Angeles, Dr. Babak Moein and his surgical staff remain committed to treating teen boys and men who suffer from this condition.
If you have gynecomastia, you may find the male breast growth difficult to cope with. Your gyno may be less severe than someone else’s. You may only have puffy nipples, or you may have a more severe case, with large, woman-like breasts. Even minor issues of gynecomastia can make it difficult to wear some shirts or to take your shirt off in public without some embarrassment.

The good news is that help is available. Gynecomastia treatment is the act of helping teens and men reverse the effects of male gyno. Instead of man boobs, gynecomastia treatment gives you a more defined and masculine chest, without the appearance of extra tissue.
To provide you with the safest treatment available, we hope to educate you on how gynecomastia treatment is performed and what results you can expect. Here are the most common questions we are asked. To get your specific questions asked, call the Gynecomastia Center of Los Angeles anytime during business hours.

What Is the Cause of Gynecomastia?

Gynecomastia is caused by a variety of factors. Hormone irregularities can cause the issue when there isn’t enough testosterone and more estrogen than is typical of the male body. Some medications can lead to the swelling of breast tissue in males, as can certain medical conditions. Excessive consumption of alcohol and the use of anabolic steroids can also cause gyno symptoms.

What Are the Symptoms of Gynecomastia?

You are said to have gynecomastia if you experience a noticeable increase in breast size and fullness. You may even feel tenderness or pain. Some men develop skin irritation on account of the excess breast tissue and skin, and some guys even produce discharge in one or both breasts.

How Can You Prevent Gynecomastia?

There is no proven way to prevent gynecomastia. There are steps you can take to minimize your risk from developing gyno, such as avoiding the excessive consumption of alcohol, and keeping away from anabolic steroids. If you feel a medication you are taking is leading to the growth of male breast tissue, speak with your doctor about switching prescriptions.

How Is Gynecomastia Treatment Performed?

Oversized breasts in males can only be treated using gynecomastia surgery. During the procedure, excess fat, glandular tissue, and saggy skin can be excised (cut) away. Liposuction is sometimes used to remove fatty tissue from the affected area. Other procedures like VASER Liposuction can give your chest a toned appearance while Renuvion with J-Plasma can tighten your chest, thus eliminating any sign of saggy man boobs.

Where Are the Incisions Made During Male Breast Reduction Surgery?

The incisions required for male breast reduction are tiny and typically located around the lower edge of the areola. This area is strategically chosen for a reason. Once healed, the scars left behind by the small cuts will be practically invisible.

What is the Best Gynecomastia Treatment?

The best treatment for gyno depends on the type of male breast tissue you have, and the reason it formed to begin with. Most types of gyno respond well to liposuction, which can remove the fat behind the nipple, causing it to protrude. Male breast reduction surgery is ideal if you have stretched-out skin that hangs, giving the appearance of man boobs. Renuvion is an excellent treatment if you want skin tightening and VASER Lipo can make your chest look ripped.
