Gynecomastia is a condition where the male breast is enlarged by excess glandular tissue. It may affect only one breast or both. Although gynecomastia is a fairly common condition, it is rarely discussed. Dr. Azar can successfully treat gynecomastia with male breast reduction surgery in Thousand Oaks to help men from Simi Valley, Westlake Village and Newbury Park restore a firm, masculine chest appearance.

If you are wondering if male breast reduction is right for you, request a consultation with Kouros Azar, M.D., to discuss the possibilities. Or you can call our office at (805) 250-0077 and one of our knowledgeable, friendly staff members will schedule your appointment.

The Masculine Chest You Want

Gynecomastia may be caused by a number of factors including obesity, genetic disorders, hormonal imbalances and chronic liver disease. Significant weight loss may resolve gynecomastia for men who are overweight, but most often surgery is the only viable solution.

The procedure is performed by making an incision either around the areola (the darker skin surrounding the nipple) or under the arm. Depending on the needs of the patient, Dr. Azar may perform liposuction alone to reduce excess fat or combine liposuction with a scalpel technique to surgically remove glandular tissue as well as any excess fatty tissue.

Some patients with gynecomastia may choose a non-surgical option called truSculpt™. It is usually used to reduce fat bulges, but can also be effective in reducing the fatty tissue around the male breast area. If Dr. Azar feels you are a good candidate, you may undergo 1 to 2 treatments to heat the fat around the breast and reduce it through a natural process in which a portion of the fat cells are affected. The treatment takes only 30 minutes and there is no downtime or recovery period. While experiences vary, most patients see results within 4 to 10 weeks.
