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. 

Is Male Breast Reduction Right For You?

The best way to learn if male breast reduction can help you is to schedule a consultation. 
After an in-depth conversation about your aesthetic goals and medical history, Dr. Piazza will examine you and determine the best course of action to address your concerns. Dr. Piazza will explain the procedure to you, answering any questions you may have so you can make an informed decision. 

Many patients who seek gynecomastia surgery can identify with at least one of the below:

  • Avoidance of form-fitting clothing
  • Avoidance of activities where they might have to take off their shirt
  • Don’t feel comfortable going to the pool or the beach
  • Experience anxiety about exercising or going to the gym
