What is Gynecomastia?
Gynecomastia is the medical term for enlarged male breasts. It is a condition that can create a feminine chest due to abnormally growing breast tissue. In many cases, gynecomastia is related to an underlying hormonal problem. This condition can also be caused by certain medications, steroids, major weight gain or loss, or it can be hereditary. Men with this condition typically feel embarrassed, more so in situations where the upper body and chest are shown, such as at the beach, pool, or in the gym. Dr. Husam Elias offers surgical breast reduction for men who have gynecomastia. This surgery is considered one of the more popular cosmetic procedures for men at The Pacific Coast Center for Oral, Facial & Cosmetic Surgery in Pasadena, CA.
How is Gynecomastia Treatment Performed?
Gynecomastia can occur due to natural hormonal imbalances, medications, or a variety of medical conditions, including obesity. It's important to understand why you are experiencing gynecomastia so a thorough examination with Dr. Elias is the best first step. Following your exam and a close review of your medical history, Dr. Elias may recommend surgery. If the gynecomastia is caused by excess fat, this can involve liposuction, which removes fat tissue via a series of small incisions, a tool inserted to loosen fat, and a suction device. If glandular swelling is the source of the gynecomastia, it may also involve more complex surgical techniques that require the breast glands to be removed via a somewhat larger incision. This is all performed under anesthesia.
Pacific Coast Center Reviews
My experience with this office was absolutely stellar. Firstly, the staff welcomes you warmly when you arrive. Diana (doctor’s assistant) met me in the exam room. Diana has a way of instantly making you feel comfortable and any nervousness you may be feeling is dissipated.... Because you can’t stop laughing. Then enters Dr. Elias.... He is extremely approachable, honest, and knowledgeable. It doesn’t hurt that he has multiple degrees. I am ecstatic that I found this business:
Dr. Elias pulled my wisdom teeth out like they called his mamma fat or something! Surgery was quick and basically painless. Didn’t need any of the pain meds and was back at work two days later looking like a snack. Diane was the nurse that took care of me for most of the process and she was so wonderful, kind, funny and sweet. If my wisdom teeth every grow back, I will definitely be coming back to Dr. Elias immediately. Thank you!
Dr. Stephens is the best!
went here for wisdom teeth removal and Dr Stephens was great. we had a detailed consultation and decided which route was best, then Greg the anesthesiologist called me the night before to address any concerns I was having. The most positive surgery experience I could have had
