Gynecomasty Treatment – A Common Aesthetic Procedure at Our Tijuana Practice

Gynecomasty surgery, or male breast reduction, is designed to remove excess fat and tissue from a man’s breasts. Gynecomasty, a condition in which a male has abnormally large breasts, is common throughout the United States, affecting between 40 percent and 60 percent of men, particularly those over the age of 50. There are several potential causes for gynecomastia, including:

  • – Puberty
    – Significant weight loss (remnants of fat may be left over)
    – Alcohol use
    – Genetic disorders
    – Medication side effects
    – Aging

In many gynecomastia cases, however, the cause is unknown. Whatever the situation, most men are eager to rid themselves of the problem.

Gynecomastia treatment, performed at Bucio Surgicenter in Tijuana, can effectively reduce the size of large male breasts, creating a flatter, firmer chest. Ultimately, self esteem and confidence will be restored.

The Procedure

Gynecomastia treatment at Dr. Bucio’s Tijuana clinic can take between one and two hours to complete. During this time, the patient will be under a local anesthesia and insensitive to pain.

There are two types of gynecomastia treatments Dr. Bucio can perform, depending on your individual situation. In one case, Dr. Bucio will remove the fatty tissue through a simple liposuction treatment. If the enlarged breasts consist primarily of glandular tissue, however, Dr. Bucio will make an incision near the armpit and around the areola. He will then remove the excess tissue either with a scalpel or through liposuction.

After the surgery, common temporary side effects include bruising, swelling, and discomfort. Most of these will subside within a few weeks, though the final results of your surgery may not be visible for a few months.

Dr. Bucio uses advanced technology and maintains strict security measures when performing gynecomastia treatment at his Tijuana practice. Your safety and comfort are of utmost importance to Dr. Bucio and his team.
