Gynecomastia Surgery in Dallas, TX


The appearance of overly large breasts is a common occurrence in a vast number of men. Known as gynecomastia (or colloquially as “man boobs”), this condition is often not easy to correct through diet and exercise alone and usually has a negative effect on a man’s self-confidence.

Fortunately, the condition of enlarged male breasts is effectively treated with gynecomastia surgery. At his Dallas practice, Dr. David Morales regularly performs male breast reduction for males of all ages.

What Are Your Gynecomastia Surgery Goals?


Flatter Chest


Gynecomastia can develop at any age of a man’s life (from puberty to well into their golden years). This chest enlargement can be due to excess fat or glandular tissue and often does not respond to diet and exercise. Male breast reduction removes fat, breast tissue, and skin for a flatter, more masculine-looking chest.

Firmer Chest


Due to excess fat and tissue, many men are unable to achieve the defined “pecs” they want. Not only does gynecomastia remove excess tissue, but it also removes the roadblock that stands in many men’s way in terms of developing a more toned and muscular-looking chest. While this surgery does not enhance the muscle, it can help inspire men to work towards greater fitness goals.

Improved Confidence


Many men who suffer from gynecomastia also experience insecurities in social, professional, and intimate settings due to the appearance of their chest. Men who struggle with these concerns can benefit significantly from gynecomastia surgery and feel more comfortable in their own skin.

What Are My Gynecomastia Surgery Options in Dallas, TX?


Liposuction

Pseudogynecomastia is a variation of the condition in which the excess is due to adipose tissue (fat) in the chest. Because of this, liposuction is appropriate and often sufficient enough to treat the excess.

Liposuction, also known as “lipoplasty,” permanently removes unwanted fat. Dr. Morales inserts a cannula (thin hollow tube) through small incisions, and a suction device permanently removes localized fat deposits to achieve a flatter and more attractive chest.

If excess skin and glandular tissue are also a problem, Dr. Morales makes an incision to remove excess skin, fat, and breast tissue. He then tightens the remaining tissue and contours the chest to achieve a firmer, more masculine physique. In some cases, Dr. Morales moves the areolas to a more attractive position.

Combination

In many cases of true gynecomastia, a combination of liposuction and surgical excision is used. This allows for the correction of excess fat, tissue, and skin (if necessary).

All surgical procedures involving incisions will result in scars. Even if you undergo liposuction alone, you can still expect to have scars — while small — at the liposuction sites. Any scars that result from the gynecomastia procedure will be small and hidden within the natural creases. Most of these scars fade with time to become nearly unnoticeable. You can help lessen the visibility of these scars by keeping them out of the sun and using topical scar treatments.
Male breast reduction is considered an elective procedure and, therefore, is not covered by insurance. Dr. Morales offers financing options to help patients make arrangements for their surgery.
Many men who undergo male breast breast reduction experience long-lasting (if not permanent) results. This surgery does not prevent weight gain, and you may see your results diminish with additional medication, drug, or steroid use.
