Building self-esteem. Rebuilding Men.

Austin Gynecomastia Center

Over the past 35 years, founder and leading gynecomastia plastic surgeon, Dr. Robert Caridi, dedicated himself to educating men about gynecomastia and the best ways to treat it.

Located in the heart of Austin, Texas, Austin Gynecomastia Center brings in men from around the world to restore their chests and end their gynecomastia for good. Austin Gynecomastia Center offers online consultations to any man, anywhere, who is suffering from gynecomastia and seriously considering surgery. If you are ready to change your chest and your life, Austin Gynecomastia Center is here to help.

The State of the Science

Gynecomastia is a relatively unexplored condition so far, but Dr. Caridi is committed to changing that.

Conducting research, publishing studies, and moving the treatment of gynecomastia forward are all fundamental parts of his practice.

To date, the scientific literature relating to gynecomastia has been poorly designed and — therefore — has made little impact on the field. Approaches to treatment vary widely because of a lack of consensus on best practices and even the diagnosis of the condition itself. This created significant inconsistencies in how doctors choose to deal with gynecomastia, leading to unreliable and unpredictable results.

Dr. Caridi is trying to bring greater unity into the gynecomastia field. His two currently published research papers focus entirely on gynecomastia and how doctors can serve patients better and more consistently. He poured his years of experience treating thousands of gynecomastia patients into the studies because most plastic surgeons do not get much exposure to gynecomastia patients in their training or non-specialized practices. The prevailing mentality is that most generic plastic surgeons can perform gynecomastia surgery simply because it is a plastic surgery procedure. However, Dr. Caridi believes they are missing a critical piece of the practice — a full understanding of the psychological burden carried by gynecomastia patients.

His published literature specifically addresses two crucial topics:

  • DiagnosisConsistent diagnosis and treatment of gynecomastia is possible. If doctors across the country and around the world can come to a consensus on best practices, procedures will become reliable, safe, and predictable, and the experience of every patient will be vastly improved.
  • Complete tissue removal — Dr. Caridi has discovered that the gynecomastia tissue responsible for “puffy nipples” can be successfully removed. Presently, the “common knowledge” has been that this tissue needed to remain to achieve a smooth, natural result. However, Dr. Caridi has proven this to be untrue in his experience and believes that — when widely applied — his technique can lead to transformative results.

Dr. Caridi cares deeply about patients with gynecomastia — his career proves this. That heartfelt concern drives his desire to raise awareness and refine the condition's understanding and treatment. He will continue to use his surgical experience to develop new potential treatments, expand his education, and advance the broader scientific community's approach to gynecomastia. The result? A world in which the burden of gynecomastia is experienced by very few because of its treatability; and a world in which any man on the planet feels comfortable knowing that surgeons across the globe treat their patients as safely, effectively, and compassionately as every person treated by Dr. Caridi at Austin Gynecomastia Center.

Nothing “Pseudo” about it

The Science Behind True Gynecomastia

Dr. Caridi examining male breast reduction patient

As you research your condition, you will likely come across the term “pseudo gynecomastia.” Pseudogynecomastia is a term that means “false gynecomastia.” This refers to gynecomastia that consists of fatty tissue, and the treatment for this excess fatty tissue is simple weight loss.

However, it is never “just fatty tissue.” Gynecomastia tissue is very real, and it’s made from fat, glands, and fibrous tissue. If you have gynecomastia, no amount of exercise, diet, or non-surgical treatment options will be able to fully remove the fibrous tissue or gynecomastia gland tissue that adds volume to your chest. Often, weight loss just makes gynecomastia more pronounced! “Pseudogynecomastia” is pseudoscience. It is a term coined to sell fat reduction techniques that treat part of the problem… but not all of it.

If you want true gynecomastia relief, you will need a doctor like Dr. Caridi, who understands the true causes of gynecomastia and how to solve them.

“How do I know if I have gynecomastia?”

If you’re asking this question, there is about a 98% chance that you have gynecomastia. Guys are more perceptive than the world would have us believe. If we look at other guys’ chests and we see one thing and then see something different in the mirror - well, there you have it.

The more important question is: what are you going to do about it?

Bodybuilder’s Gynecomastia

For bodybuilders, gynecomastia comes with different (and often more complex) causes and treatment options. It can be a difficult and disheartening diagnosis, especially when you’ve spent so much time and effort working on your body. Bodybuilders typically have very little body fat, and their gynecomastia is mostly a firm, rubbery gland that is easily felt upon examination. Dr. Caridi can help you resolve these issues safely and permanently with gynecomastia surgery that specifically addresses the unique difficulties of bodybuilder’s gynecomastia.

Surgery is just the beginning

We Plan Your Surgery and Your Recovery.

Most patients take a day or two off before returning to work and other normal daily activities. Most patients can get back to exercise five to seven days after gynecomastia surgery while staying away from chest work for two to four weeks. Listen to your body and work gradually back up to full intensity.

Compression garments should be worn for a minimum of four weeks or longer to control swelling, provide support and facilitate skin retraction. We encourage all our patients to massage the treated area with their hands or a roller device to soften the scar tissue and help the skin lay out nicely. This should be done several times a day for 20 minutes or more until you are fully healed.
