Gynecomastia Treatment for Men LA
Gynecomastia is known as the excessive growth and overdevelopment of male breast tissue in the medical community. Outside the doctor’s office, though, it’s simply known as “man boobs” or “puffy nipples.” No matter how you look at it, gynecomastia is an embarrassing condition that far too many men struggle with. It can be caused by hormone fluctuations, excessive drinking, drug use, or even just as a side effect of aging. Around 60 percent of all men will have gynecomastia at one point or another. It can happen to one breast or both, too.
No matter what stage you’re in, it’s an embarrassing issue to have. Dr. Steinbrech makes sure that men who are embarrassed by their “man boobs” can get treatment for gynecomastia – and also works to ensure that the treatment is permanent.
How Is Gynecomastia Treated?
Gynecomastia, depending on the stage, can be treated via simply removing the excess glandular tissue around the nipple. Or, it can be treated using liposuction to remove the extra fat. In certain cases, no treatment will be necessary at all, since it’s possible for some forms of this condition to go away on their own.
The treatment that Dr. Steinbrech chooses for you will be based on the stage of gynecomastia you’re in. Most of the time, it’s a two-pronged approach that involves both liposuction and excision of glandular tissue. Dr. Steinbrech will also try to find out whether your gynecomastia was caused by a specific issue – and if so, how to avoid it happening again.
General anesthesia is typically used, and a typical procedure will take two hours in the operating room.
MiniGyno Treatment with TetherProof Technology
In the past, removing excess glandular tissue around a man’s nipples would cause scars to tether to a man’s chest in an unsightly manner. Dr. Steinbrech uses the MiniGyno Treatment with TetherProof Technology to help reduce tethering and scarring around the chest. This technique allows him to make a much smaller incision, which in turn, speeds up healing times significantly for male patients.
Recovery: What to Expect
Some quick notes on recovery include the following facts:
- Bruising and swelling are typical of any invasive procedure. These issues should go away after a week.
- Male gynecomastia patients should expect a week of downtime.
- Pain is managed via medication prescribed by Dr. Steinbrech.
- You will be advised against strenuous activity for at least a month.
- Recovery will include the use of compression garments to facilitate healing.
- Results are permanent.
