Gynecomastia, or more commonly referred to as enlarged breasts in men, occurs in men of all ages. Treatment in Orange County removes the excess tissue and fat that is responsible for the woman-like breast appearance. Our surgeon at Mira Aesthetic Medical Center & Spa provides natural-looking results with meticulous surgical techniques that may combine liposuction. As with any body contouring plastic surgery, the success of male breast reduction largely relies on meticulous patient selection.
Your Enlargement is a Persistent Problem
While many surgeons recommend that you wait until you’re 18 before undergoing treatment for gynecomastia in Orange County, this is not always a hard and fast rule. Some patients have had the procedure earlier than this age when their breast enlargement persisted for more than three years. Surveys have suggested that up to two-thirds of boys going through puberty will experience gynecomastia to a varying extent. Around 90 percent will resolve within 2-3 years, while the remaining may want to look into treatment options to correct their woman-like breasts.
You are Physically Fit
Gynecomastia surgery requires recovery, and so you must be in optimal health prior to surgery. Also, you’ll be asked to discontinue smoking and tobacco products, blood-thinners such as aspirin and ibuprofen, and other drugs that may interfere with healing weeks before the procedure.
You Have Realistic Goals and Expectations
Prior to male breast reduction, our doctor will ask about your cosmetic goals and expectations, which you must explain in detail. This will help him decide if other ancillary procedures such as liposuction may be necessary.
You are a Committed Patient
Our surgeon can only do so much. The long-term success of your surgery also relies on your commitment. In addition, keeping a stable weight through a healthy lifestyle further ensures near-permanent results.
