Feel Good In Your Body

Are you a guy who avoids beaches and pool parties because of excess breast tissue? You may have a treatable condition called gynecomastia, and you are not alone. At The Piazza Center in Austin, Texas, practice founder Dr. Rocco Piazza can help get rid of this embarrassing condition, leaving you with a sculpted, masculine chest and virtually no signs of surgery. 

What Is Gynecomastia?

Gynecomastia is a benign condition where boys and men have the appearance of ‘male breasts’ caused by the presence of swollen breast tissue or fat. The breasts often protrude and can be seen through shirts. This condition can bring about body shame and a reluctance to be seen shirtless. For boys and teens, teasing can become an issue. 

Unfortunately, gynecomastia is completely impervious to diet and exercise, and in some cases can become worse with certain pectoral exercises. Dr. Piazza understands just how important it is for men and boys to feel confident in their bodies and has helped countless male patients who have suffered from this condition Live Confidently.

What Happens During Gynecomastia Surgery?

Dr. Piazza conducts surgery to correct gynecomastia at INSPIRE Surgery Centre, an Austin-based exclusive outpatient surgery facility. After the patient is anesthetized by our dedicated anesthesiologist Dr. Cady, D.O., Dr. Piazza creates tiny incisions to remove unnecessary glandular and fatty tissue from the area. 

Next, he carefully contours the chest so it has a more masculine, fit appearance. Finally, the small incisions are meticulously closed, completing the procedure. Most gynecomastia surgeries require about 1-2 hours.

The Recovery Process

Most men tolerate the recovery from gynecomastia surgery very well, finding it to be smooth and uneventful. Dr. Piazza gives each patient a customized recovery plan that suits their needs and lifestyle. In general, he recommends patients plan to take 1-2 weeks off. Patients should wear a compression garment as they recover, but this is easily camouflaged under clothes. 

Visits to the gym or any vigorous exercise are to be avoided until cleared by Dr. Piazza. During  follow-up visits with Dr. Piazza, he will monitor you to ensure healing is going according to plan. Dr. Piazza continues to track results even after healing has concluded to ensure patient satisfaction. 

Candidacy for Gynecomastia Surgery 

While it's a common condition affecting men of all ages, gynecomastia can cause significant distress and self-consciousness. Understanding whether you're a candidate for gynecomastia surgery starts with recognizing the signs and symptoms. If you identify with one or more of these signs, you may be a candidate for gynecomastia surgery.

Enlarged Breasts

One of the primary indicators of gynecomastia is the enlargement of one or both breasts, often resulting in a more feminine or disproportionate chest appearance.

Excess Breast Tissue

Gynecomastia can lead to the accumulation of excess glandular tissue beneath the nipple-areolar complex, causing the breasts to appear swollen or puffy.

Nipple Changes

Men with gynecomastia may notice changes in the appearance of their nipples, such as enlargement or protrusion, due to the underlying breast tissue growth.

Tenderness or Discomfort

Some individuals with gynecomastia experience tenderness, pain, or discomfort in the breast area, especially when touched.

Psychological Impact

Beyond the physical symptoms, gynecomastia can have a profound psychological impact, leading to embarrassment, low self-esteem, and avoidance of certain social situations.

Consulting with a qualified plastic surgeon is the next step in determining the most appropriate treatment plan for your unique needs and goals. Entrust in Dr. Rocco Piazza to lead you down the path of a more confident, comfortable body.
