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. Gynecomastia is usually 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 at the beach, pool, or gym. Sherman Oaks, CA cosmetic surgeon 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 Southern California Center for Surgical Arts.
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 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, your personalized plan may 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.
Southern California Center for Surgical Arts 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!
He did Facetite on me on a Friday and I was back to work on Monday - Dr. Elias is wonderful! He did Facetite on me on a Friday and I was back to work on Monday. He's a true artist & perfectionist! He's really good at injectables as well. I get Botox & fillers all the time with him. The staff is very friendly!
Excellent, clear communication, professional. Great staff with a fun vibe. Clean office. Lots of follow ups and no issues with my dental implant! Everyone was A+.
