Dr. Glenn Vallecillos understands the challenges men face as they try to look their best and perform at their peak. Knowing that many suffer in silence and discomfort with overdeveloped or enlarged breasts, Dr. Vallecillos now provides gynecomastia surgery for men.
Often caused by a hormonal imbalance, gynecomastia is the enlargement of the breasts in boys or men. While gynecomastia can be related to other health concerns, it usually is not a serious medical problem. However, enlarged male breasts in adults can cause physical discomfort from the firmness of the breasts and stretching of the skin. Since the breasts can often be substantially overdeveloped and uneven in appearance, gynecomastia also can lead to feelings of embarrassment and self-consciousness.
Most of the time, gynecomastia goes away on its own. However, persistent gynecomastia might require surgery to eliminate it. Also called male breast reduction surgery, gynecomastia surgery reshapes the breasts either through liposuction to remove excess fatty tissue, removal of glandular tissue or a combination of the two. Gynecomastia surgery is relatively simple and lasts about two hours in most cases. However, to ensure the best possible outcome, a skilled, well-trained and caring cosmetic surgeon should be chosen to perform the procedure.
As a recognized expert in several areas of cosmetic surgery with years of experience, Dr. Vallecillos can be trusted to help gynecomastia surgery patients achieve their personal aesthetic goals and regain their confidence. Choosing to have cosmetic surgery for gynecomastia can be an intensely personal and emotional decision for a man.
