Dr. Robert Caridi of the Austin Gynecomastia Center at Westlake Plastic Surgery is an expert at removing the burden of gynecomastia. 30% of men may suffer from gynecomastia. The Austin Gynecomastia center exists to get you out of the shadows, confident, and back in the pool.
Gynecomastia treatment may not be limited to just the breast area. Some patients have fullness under their arms, around the abdomen and love handle areas. Expert treatment means seeing the whole picture and treating all the areas that need contouring to achieve the best possible result.
The primary objective of surgical treatment for gynecomastia is to remove the glandular material and contour the remaining fatty tissue so the result is smooth and masculine with no irregularities. No matter what techniques are offered, this is the goal that must be achieved.
If tissue is left, you will clearly be able to feel it under the skin and you won’t be completely satisfied. If too much tissue is removed, the contour can appear unnatural. It’s important to know that no muscle is removed in gynecomastia surgery, only the overlying tissue. The art of the surgery is to consistently contour the different varieties of gynecomastia so the results are pleasing and masculine.
