Under the guidance of our board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Brian Shafa, we offer comprehensive solutions for gynecomastia in Santa Monica.

What is Gynecomastia?

Gynecomastia occurs when male breast tissue enlarges, leading to a chest appearance that may resemble a more feminine contour. This can stem from hormonal imbalances, specific medications, genetics, or underlying health issues. Regardless of the cause, gynecomastia can profoundly affect your self-image and overall quality of life. At Brian Shafa Plastic Surgery, we recognize this condition's emotional and physical challenges. Our compassionate team is dedicated to providing comprehensive and effective treatments, including liposuction and glandular tissue removal, to help restore a masculine chest contour and boost your confidence. We are here to support you every step of the way on your journey to feeling your best.

What are the benefits of Gynecomastia Treatment?

The benefits of gynecomastia treatment extend beyond physical changes. By addressing gynecomastia, you can experience:

  • Improved self-confidence
  • Enhanced body image
  • Greater sense of overall well-being
  • Increased comfort and confidence in your own skin
  • Ability to enjoy a more fulfilling and active lifestyle

Am I a Good Candidate for Gynecomastia Treatment?

If you are experiencing enlarged male breasts and are bothered by the appearance of your chest, you may be a good candidate for gynecomastia treatment. Typically, we’ve found the best candidates are in good health overall, possess realistic expectations, and desire a more masculine chest contour. In a consultation, Dr. Shafa will evaluate your requirements and devise a personalized treatment strategy accordingly.

What Does the Procedure Entail?

The gynecomastia procedure typically involves a surgical approach to remove excess breast tissue and reshape the chest for a more masculine contour. For severe or persistent cases, surgical intervention is often recommended, which may include excision of glandular tissue and liposuction to enhance chest definition. Non-surgical options like liposuction alone can be effective for milder cases, targeting excess fat deposits. Dr. Shafa tailors each treatment to fit your specific anatomy and aesthetic objectives, ensuring personalized and optimal results.

Results and Recovery

Following gynecomastia treatment, you'll notice a more defined and masculine chest contour, enhanced symmetry, and a natural appearance. Recovery times will vary based on your chosen treatment method. Dr. Shafa will offer comprehensive post-operative guidance to ensure you achieve the best possible results and experience a comfortable recovery journey.

Typically, gynecomastia treatment results are durable over time. To maintain these outcomes, it's beneficial to maintain a stable weight and adopt a healthy lifestyle.

Yes, non-surgical treatments such as liposuction or targeted fat reduction procedures can effectively address mild to moderate cases of gynecomastia. These minimally invasive options offer reduced downtime and can achieve noticeable improvements in chest contour.

In some cases, insurance may cover gynecomastia treatment if it is deemed medically necessary. Our team can assist you in navigating insurance considerations and exploring available coverage options.
