Gynecomastia Los Angeles

If you are a man who suffers from embarrassing excess fatty tissue around the chest area, a condition medically referred to as gynecomastia, rest assured there is an excellent, effective solution for your needs. Gynecomastia is not a threat to your overall health, but it can significantly impair your quality of life by causing self-consciousness and a lowered self-image, especially in social settings such as at the beach or by the pool.

Gynecomastia has several different causes including lowered levels of testosterone resulting from the aging process, the abuse of steroids, drugs or alcohol, or chronic disorders of the endocrine system and hormonal imbalances.

Because there are various causes of gynecomastia, so too are there a myriad of treatment options available to you. As Dr. Lahijani is one of the top authorities on gynecomastia Los Angeles has to offer, he will work with you one-on-one to determine the best personalized course of action for your needs. Treatment may include a detailed plan of diet and exercise, liposuction, hormonal therapy and testosterone replacement, or surgical excision of the excess fat, also known as reduction mammoplasty.

“There is no substitute for refined technique, thoroughly honed." Dr. Saul Lahijani

Diet and Exercise

Most clients who suffer from breast enlargement have found that diet and exercise fail to bring about adequate change in their condition. This can be frustrating indeed. The reason behind this is that true gynecomastia involves not only the excess fat around the chest, but also the growth of unwanted glandular tissue, which does not respond to working out or eating well.

In cases of pseudogynecomastia, the chest is enlarged due primarily to excess fat, a condition that can benefit from dieting and exercise, most likely in tandem with seeing a nutritionist and a personal trainer. Consulting with a plastic surgeon is the best way to determine your situation and the right solution for your needs.

Hormone Therapy

When a hormonal imbalance is the cause of a patient’s gynecomastia, Dr. Lahijani will consider a non-surgical approach consisting of medications and testosterone replacement. Testosterone is the naturally occurring hormone in the human body that is responsible for masculine traits, and it declines with age. This can have many adverse effects, including mood swings, lowered sex drive, a declining sperm count, and enlarged male breasts.

Liposuction is performed by creating a minor incision in the chest area through which excess fatty tissue can be suctioned out via a slender tubular device known as a cannula. Sometimes this procedure is all that is required to create a slimmer, more attractive and traditionally masculine torso, while other times it is combined with surgical excision for more comprehensive results.

Reduction Mammoplasty

In some cases, Dr. Lahijani may recommend surgery to excise the superfluous skin, fat and tissue that is causing the breast enlargement. This is a more invasive approach, but it is a safe, effective procedure for sculpting the torso and eliminating the fatty excess that deforms the physique. The doctor always takes great care to minimize scarring as well as post-operative discomfort.
