Now that I have Gynecomastia, what are My Options?
If your gynecomastia is not caused by an underlying issue, such as a medical problem or a medication, you can simply have the excess breast tissue surgically removed. If you do not mind having male breasts, you don’t need to do anything. Gynecomastia is not medically harmful. However, here in Dallas, Dr. Rai has helped many men who find it embarrassing. Surgery to correct gynecomastia can improve your self-confidence, and help you have the body that you have always wanted.
Gynecomastia with Underlying Causes
In rare cases a health condition causes gynecomastia. You need to address the underlying condition before seeking surgery. Depending on the condition, gynecomastia may resolve along with the underlying problem. If your medication is the cause, talk to your prescribing doctor about alternatives. If you can stop or change your medication, gynecomastia may subside.
Dallas gynecomastia surgeon Dr. Vasdev Rai can help you determine if your gynecomastia is caused by a medication .
If, after addressing the underlying cause, your breasts do not reduce on their own, gynecomastia surgery may be an option for you.
Gynecomastia as a Stand Alone Issue
If there is no underlying issue to address, the only effective treatment for gynecomastia is surgery. Depending on your needs this may involve removing the excess fat with liposuction and surgically removing breast tissue or mastectomy may be necessary.
