What is Gynecomastia?
Gynecomastia is the medical term for male breast enlargement. It is a condition that can produce a feminine chest due to the abnormal growth of breast tissue. Many times, gynecomastia is caused by an underlying hormonal condition. It may also be caused by certain drugs, steroids, weight gain, or genetics. Men with this condition may feel worried in circumstances where the chest area is shown, such as at the beach, pool, or gym.

To find out more about this popular cosmetic surgery for men, contact Omar Ahmed, M.D. in Pasadena, CA to schedule a consultation.
"Dr.Ahmed got skills!! I could not be happier with the results of my tummy tuck and lipo. He gave me back my pre baby body, and then some! I went on 5 consultations prior to him. A few minutes into my consultation with Dr.Ahmed I knew he was the one. He is honest, and didn’t try to sell me up on procedures like other plastic surgeons I saw previously. He listened and answered my questions patiently and explained in great detail what my procedure would be like. No one else took that kind of time. Surgery day was calm and his staff is super friendly and caring. After surgery he was always available to answer my questions and making appointments with his staff was easy and they worked with my crazy schedule every time. Dr.Ahmed has changed my life and I am forever grateful. I recommend him to everyone I know."- P. / Healthgrades / Sep 14, 2020
"Dr. Omar Ahmed is a highly skilled and talented surgeon. He is honest, down to earth, and his bedside manner is excellent. I had a tummy tuck, 360 lipo and a BBL. It was a transformation beyond my expectations. I am extremely happy with the results, and recommended him to anyone and everyone I know who wants cosmetic surgery. I will be returning to him for a breast augmentation in 6 months. Thanks Doc, you changed my life!"- Anonymous / Healthgrades / Aug 05, 2020
"Dr. Ahmed is extremely kind and very informative. He's considerate and always attentive to my mom's needs and concerns. My mom has had several surgeries and had no complications whatsoever. I appreciate his direct approach and his willingness to answer all my questions. My mom says she always feels safe with him. Highly recommend him and his staff. His assistant Angelina is a delight to work with. We wish you all the best, Robin Appleby and Barbara Curry."- R.A. / Google / Sep 08, 2019
"In February 2018, I tumbled down the stairs of my office building. I sustained a four-inch gash in my head that bled profusely. I was sent to Methodist Hospital in Arcadia. They called Dr Ahmed to stitch up my head. My Blue Shield PPO did not want to pay his bill of $7,000, which I thought was very reasonable, given the very skillful job he did, but they paid the ER Doctor’s $5,000 bill. Dr Ahmed was the only doctor that I saw that day, despite a bad concussion."- J.S. / Yelp / Apr 25, 2019
Do I Need Male Breast Reduction Surgery?
Male breast reduction surgery is reserved for men with overly sized breasts that cannot be reduced with a healthy lifestyle or exercise and diet. If you feel bothered by the look of your chest (but are physically healthy), you may benefit from male breast reduction surgery by Dr. Ahmed at Omar Ahmed, M.D. Adolescent teens may also attain positive results from gynecomastia surgery; however, an additional procedure may be needed later during adulthood if new breast tissue continues to form. In your initial consultation with Dr. Ahmed, treatment considerations will be provided and may include the likelihood of undergoing surgery to repair the condition.
GYNECOMASTIA SURGERY Technique
A form of liposuction is typically utilized during gynecomastia surgery. With the patient safely under general anesthesia, liposuction reduces excess pockets of fat from the chest wall. Afterward, any lax skin will be carefully trimmed away to produce a taut look, and then the nipple will be placed into a more correct position. In most cases, this technique requires a small incision in proximity to where the glandular tissue collects. Once the fat and loose skin have been removed, Dr. Ahmed will tighten the remaining skin.
What To Expect after GYNECOMASTIA SURGERY
At the conclusion of your gynecomastia surgery, the chest will be wrapped with a medical garment to help eliminate bruising and swelling. For complex cases where a more intricate method was used, a small tube for draining may be inserted to assist with fluid. The outcomes following male breast reduction surgery are immediately noticeable, and most men are extremely satisfied with their new masculine-appearing chest. The incisions made during surgery take a few weeks to heal, and any scars left behind are barely seen.
