Gynecomastia Treatment in Fredericksburg, VA

What is Gynecomastia?

Gynecomastia is the medical term for male breast enlargement. This condition can result in a feminine chest due to increased growing breast tissue. Many times, gynecomastia is related to an unknown hormonal issue. It may also be caused by certain drugs, steroids, significant weight gain or loss, or it can be hereditary. Men with this condition generally feel embarrassed, especially when the upper body and chest are exposed, such as at the beach, pool, or the gym. Fredericksburg, VA plastic surgeons Dr. Howard Heppe, Dr. Harold Bautista, and Dr. Pejman Aflaki perform surgical breast reduction for men with gynecomastia. This surgery does have a very high success rate. It is one of the more popular cosmetic surgeries for men at Plastic Surgery Services of Fredericksburg.

How is Gynecomastia Treatment Performed?

A form of liposuction is usually utilized during surgery for gynecomastia. Performed under anesthesia, liposuction removes excess fat from the internal chest region. Afterward, any lax skin will be carefully trimmed away to create a more tightened look, and then the nipple will be placed into a more correct position. This method usually requires an incision close to where the glandular tissue collects. After the fat pockets and excess skin have been appropriately handled, your surgeon will pull and tighten the remaining skin.

Saw Dr. Bautista for breast augmentation and extremely pleased with my experience. He was patient with my questions and educated me on realistic results. I’m overwhelmingly happy with the outcome and without hesitation recommend him!

I had such a great experience here. Everyone in the office is so helpful and professional. I’ve had 5 large babies and had quite the muffin top situation going on. I can’t believe the difference the tummy tuck made. I’ve heard of other people traveling far away to get procedures done, but I’m super grateful we have such a high caliber plastic surgery office here in Fredericksburg!

I had a breast augmentation done in May and I could not be happier. Dr Heppe and his staff were very professional, helpful and supportive in making sure that what I wanted is what I got. I’ve waited my entire adult life for this surgery and would do it again with this team in a second. A+ all the way around!

The whole staff was amazing. I had a breast lift with augmentation and I love the results. I am no longer embarrassed about my chest. I also had filler under my eyes and everyone at work has commented on how rested I look. My only regret is I wish I would have done this procedure years ago.
