Be Confident Shirtless

Whether you've had excess tissue on your chest since you were a teenager, or perhaps you've recently lost a lot of weight, you aren't alone. Gynecomastia, commonly known as male breast enlargement, affects roughly 50 to 65 percent of men during their lifetime. Fortunately, treatment options are available, enabling you to confidently reveal your chest at the gym and beach. We have helped many Austin, TX men reclaim their self-confidence, and we are excited to partner with you to reclaim yours.

What is Gynecomastia?

Gynecomastia is a condition resulting in a feminine chest from excessive breast tissue growth. In many cases, gynecomastia is related to an underlying hormonal imbalance. Certain drugs, including steroids, significant weight gain or loss, or genetics can also cause this condition. Men with this issue often feel embarrassed, especially when the chest is exposed at the beach, pool, or gym. This surgical procedure has a very high success rate. Dr. Pearce performs surgical breast reduction for men with gynecomastia in the Austin, TX area.

How Is Gynecomastia Treatment Performed?

Gynecomastia surgery can be performed on suitable candidates while awake in the office or under general anesthesia in the operating room. Liposuction is generally used to reduce excess fat tissue from the chest wall after numbing the target areas with local anesthesia. Next, Dr. Pearce makes a small incision along the border of the areola, where the dark skin meets the lighter skin of the chest. The thick fibrous glandular tissue is carefully removed, enhancing the male chest contours. In most cases, there's no need to remove excess skin as it naturally tightens over time. However, if there's a significant excess, we delicately trim it for a tighter appearance and optimally position the nipple. Once your gynecomastia removal surgery is complete, you must wear a compression garment for several weeks.

Where are the incisions made for gynecomastia surgery?

Dr. Pearce's priority is to conceal the incision, minimizing visibility after surgery. His approach involves placing one incision in the underarm area and another small incision on the border of the areola and chest wall skin. The result is incisions that heal very well and are inconspicuous when your shirt is off.

What can I expect if I'm a suitable candidate to be awake during gynecomastia treatment?

After determining you are a good candidate for gynecomastia treatment, surgery is performed while you are awake here in our procedure room. We administer an oral sedative to help you relax throughout the surgery. The numbing process is more comfortable using PRO-NOX™, commonly known as laughing gas. After a short duration, Dr. Pearce performs liposuction and gland excision while you remain awake and comfortable. Patients must have someone available to drive them home safely after the procedure.

How long before I see my final results from gynecomastia treatment?

It will take six months to see your full results. This duration allows for decreased swelling and the natural contraction of the skin, helping to improve the contours of your chest wall over time.

When can I go back to work after gynecomastia treatment?

You can return to work in a few days if you spend long hours behind a desk and no longer require pain medication. If your job involves heavy lifting, Dr. Pearce will discuss your job duties with you and create a plan that allows you to return to work as soon as it is safe without jeopardizing your results.

When can I resume all of my regular activities after gynecomastia treatment?

After gland excision with liposuction, patients can resume normal activities like returning to the gym in three weeks. Waiting for six weeks before returning to gym activities is recommended for patients who underwent liposuction and gland excision, with a large amount of skin removed.

Today I am three months post op from my breast lift with a silicone implant and I cannot rant and rave enough about Dr. Pearce and his team. I received thorough and high quality care from the initial consultation to aftercare. Dr. Pearce goes above and beyond for his clients.

Additionally his team answered every single question I had in reference to payment options, scheduling conflicts, and so much more.

Dr Pearce and his staff have been so beyond amazing to work with! As someone who gets pretty squeamish around needles, they have made me feel so relaxed and at ease through it all. Dr Pearce and Amy were so incredible and Informative during my breast augmentation consultation. They answered my 100 questions and helped put my mind at ease. Getting surgery is one of my biggest fears And I know I’m choosing the right spot! Last of all, the front desk staff is sooo welcoming and sweet, even if I’m running a little bit late they have been so understanding! I’ll definitely be a life long patient!

I chose doctor Pearce to do my chin lipo after I did some research on YouTube. His videos popped up and I instantly felt very comfortable booking a consultation. I love the fact that he educates us on every procedure beforehand and that he is just a very down to earth guy and I just love him. I am very skeptical when it comes down to choosing a doctor but that was never an issue from start to finish. He is very understanding and he will do his very best to give you the results that you are looking for. I would definitely choose him for any other procedure I decide to get in the future.
