Gynecomastia Treatment for Miami Men

by Board-Certified Plastic Surgeon

Dr. Douglas Steinbrech

Gynecomastia, also known as “man boobs” is the condition of enlarged male

breast tissue. This condition will affect an estimated 40 to 60 percent of the male

population at one point in their lives or another. Oversized breast tissue in men can cause humiliation, emotional distress, low self- esteem, as well as a worrisome avoidance of intimacy. Gynecomastia affects men of all ages in Miami – and the world. If you suffer from gynecomastia, you are not alone. There are gynecomastia treatments available for men in the Miami area. If you are suffering, a gynecomastia treatment with Dr. Douglas Steinbrech, a leading plastic surgeon, can help you restore your self-confidence, comfort, and appearance.

The cost of surgery will be well worth the trust you will obtain with the right surgeon for you. Board-certified Miami plastic surgeon Dr. Steinbrech has treated hundreds of male patients. This means you no longer have to hide under baggy clothing or feel

What Is Gynecomastia?

It can be:

  • Excess chest fatty tissue
  • Excess glandular development around the breast and nipple area
  • A combination of both extra fat and glandular tissue

You can have this condition in one or both breasts. Before you go to gynecomastia surgery, you should be checked to see if there is any specific medical cause of their gynecomastia. The causes of gynecomastia can include the use of certain drugs, disease, hereditary conditions, or hormonal changes.

This offers the patient a more natural appearance and even more confidence when he is shirtless at the beach or onstage in a bodybuilding competition.

The Gynecomastia Surgical Procedure: What to Know

Gynecomastia surgery is typically performed under general anesthesia or under

local anesthesia on an outpatient basis. Multiple methods can be used, depending on the severity of the male patient’s condition.

What should patients expect from gynecomastia treatment?

Gynecomastia surgery can be done via liposuction and/or by surgically removing excess glandular tissue. The time to treat gynecomastia is on approximately two hours.

Recovery from Gynecomastia Surgery

The recovery path from surgery will depend on the type of procedure that was performed. Regardless, downtime is minimal (roughly one week at most) and the results are permanent – unless future weight gain causes excess fat deposits in the breast area. Bruising and swelling is normal following almost any type of surgery; this is no different with gynecomastia. Post-procedure, men will be instructed to wear a chest compression garment for a while until they fully recover. The garment will help skin adhere to your tissue, contour your body, and minimize swelling. In all cases, medication will be prescribed to relieve pain and discomfort you

might experience during the first couple of days after your male breast reduction surgery. During recovery, all strenuous activity should be avoided until your muscles recover and the incisions heal. After surgery, Dr. Steinbrech will carefully evaluate your personal situation and advise you of the time it would take to return to work and normal activities.
