Gynecomastia is a common disorder in males that causes an increase in the size of breast tissue, resulting in the appearance of enlarged or pointed breasts. The condition does not resolve with exercise or fat loss, but must be addressed surgically to remove the gland/tissue causing the problem along with any related fat tissue that has developed. Cases of gynecomastia vary from mild to severe, and can be caused by genetics, hormone imbalance, medications, or various other causes.
The treatment of gynecomastia is straightforward and involves removing the breast gland and the fat that has accumulated around it. This is a combination of a Smart Lipo procedure to remove fat and contour the area, and a surgical removal of the gland to prevent any further fat accumulation or recurrence. Recovery is typically very easy and does not involve any special aftercare. The entrance incisions will heal within 1-2 weeks, and there are minimal (if any) permanent marks from the procedure.
Gynecomastia often poses no medical risk, and is solely a cosmetic concern. For this reason, insurance does not cover the treatment. While there may not be any direct medical risk from gynecomastia, there is often a psychological impact to the patient and it may cause unwanted lifestyle changes. For this reason, we keep the cost of treatment to about $4,000, including all associated expenses. We can normally treat the condition within a few weeks, and recovery is minimal. You'll be at the beach or pool without any sign of gynecomastia in as little as a month.
