Gynecomastia Surgery in McAllen, TX

“Model. Not an actual patient.”

Gynecomastia is a condition that can cause significant discomfort and embarrassment in men. To eliminate the fatty breast tissue and excess breast tissue that a patient has developed, we offer gynecomastia surgery. Men living in McAllen, Brownsville, the Rio Grande Valley, and all of South Texas can achieve the masculine appearance they desire at RGV Cosmetic Surgery & Vein Center.

What is Gynecomastia Surgery?

Women are not the only ones who suffer from enlarged breasts. In men, enlargement of the breast tissue is known as gynecomastia, and this can be an equivalent source of discomfort and embarrassment. This condition can develop in both boys and men, and is typically caused by a hormone imbalance. Gynecomastia can lead to low self-esteem and psychological distress. Although serious, this condition can be readily treated with gynecomastia surgery, also called male breast reduction.

How is Gynecomastia Surgery Performed?

Gynecomastia is graded based on the severity of the presentation. Mild to moderate enlargement of the breast with primarily fatty tissue (pseudogynecomastia) and minimal skin excess (Grade I or II gynecomastia) can often be treated with VASERLipo® alone. Dr. Rodriguez uses the second generation VASERLipo® to enhance skin tightening in the areas treated and minimize residual saggy skin. Sometimes, a small periareolar incision is needed to remove any hard or firm breast tissue that may be present. For men with more severe breast enlargement with drooping excess skin (Grade III or IV gynecomastia), VASERLipo® is combined with more formal excisional procedures to remove the excess skin and reshape the chest, carefully concealing the scars to create a more masculine appearance. Please visit our Before and After photo gallery to view some examples.

What Kind of Results Can I Expect from Gynecomastia Surgery?

You will notice results immediately after your surgery. Patients typically experience swelling or bruising for approximately a week after surgery, with the full results being visible afterwards. The results from gynecomastia are long-lasting and can be permanent in most cases. However, this procedure does not prevent future weight gain, which can interfere with the results achieved from surgery. In addition, abuse of exogenous steroids, especially testosterone, can interfere with the surgical results.

What is Recovery Like After Gynecomastia Surgery?

Your recovery will depend on which technique is used for treatment, which relies on the severity of the breast enlargement. VASERLipo® is an advanced technique that involves very little downtime compared to traditional liposuction surgery without VASER. For this method, a short recovery period is necessary, followed by a few weeks of limited physical activity. More severe cases of gynecomastia may require a longer recovery period, as more invasive excisional procedures are used. During your consultation with Dr. Rodriguez, he will explain which technique will be needed, as well as what you can expect regarding scarring, results, and recovery.

How Much Does Gynecomastia Surgery Cost?

To determine the cost of your gynecomastia surgery, we invite you to schedule a private consultation at our practice. During your consultation, we will assess your cosmetic goals and needs in order to pursue a treatment plan that matches your unique needs. Then, we will be able to provide you with a clear breakdown of the costs associated with your treatment. At RGV Cosmetic Surgery & Vein Center, we accept a number of payment and financing options, including cash, checks, money orders, major credit cards, and CareCredit® financing. We also offer simple and secure online payment options for the convenience of our patients.
