What is Gynecomastia?
Gynecomastia is a condition that causes men to abnormally grow breast tissue. Often, gynecomastia happens because of hormone issues, certain medications, steroids, weight gain, or genetics. This condition can cause frustration or embarrassment in certain situations, such as by the pool or at the gym. At Tulsa Surgical Arts in Tulsa, OK, Dr. Cuzalina performs male breast reduction for men who suffer from gynecomastia. With a high success rate, gynecomastia is one of the most common cosmetic procedures for men.

Is Gynecomastia For You?
If you maintain a healthy lifestyle, but nothing seems to work, gynecomastia can help reduce excess breast tissue. Additionally, gynecomastia can help men who have stretched skin after dramatic weight loss. During your consultation with Dr. Cuzalina, he will assess your condition, set realistic expectations, and determine if this surgery is right for you. If we think you have an underlying reason for breast development, such as a hormone imbalance or thyroid issue, we may recommend seeing your primary physician first. Teenage males may also undergo this surgery, but it could require follow-up surgeries later in life.
At the beginning of your treatment, Dr. Cuzalina administers general anesthesia to help you stay comfortable. During your surgery, we use liposuction to help reduce unwanted fat. Liposuction helps eliminate excess pockets of fat from the chest wall. Next, we excise any loose or wrinkled skin and reposition the areola and nipple so it looks more proportionate. In most cases, this technique requires a small incision near the glandular tissue, and we will determine the incision type at the time of your consultation. After the pockets of fat and excess skin have been removed, Dr. Cuzalina will pull together the remaining skin.
What To Expect
Following your gynecomastia surgery, you will need to wear a compression garment, which will support the chest and minimize swelling, bleeding, or bruising. If we used a reconstructive approach during the surgery, you may need a small tube to help drain the fluid. Right after your surgery, you should see a dramatic difference. Most men feel extremely satisfied with their new appearance. To ensure you heal properly, we will provide detailed, post-treatment instructions that outline how to properly care for your incisions. However, once your incisions heal, scarring is barely visible. With your new results, Dr. Cuzalina can help you determine when it's okay to start exercising again so you can complement your exciting results.
