Dr. Dabbah’s Approach to Gynecomastia Surgery
During your consultation, Dr. Dabbah will determine whether your gynecomastia is due to fat, breast tissue, or a combination of each. If fat is contributing to the enlarged breast, Dr. Dabbah removes by liposuction, which may provide sufficient contouring. Liposuction also tightens the chest.
If breast tissue is the cause, Dr. Dabbah surgically removes it through a small incision around the areola. Dr. Dabbah performs gynecomastia surgery in an outpatient surgical center while patients are under local or general anesthesia.
What Causes Gynecomastia?
While many young boys have excess breast tissue, the issue occasionally resolves during puberty. In other situations, puberty can exacerbate the condition due to hormonal changes. Other factors that contribute to gynecomastia include:
"Dr. Dabbah performed surgery on my son's gynecomastia when he was 18 and that was absolutely transformative for my son in so many ways. He made sure my son felt safe and reassured."
Who Is The Ideal Candidate for Boca Raton Gynecomastia Surgery?
