Post-Semaglutide (Wegovy) Plastic Surgery: Gynecomastia Treatment After Semaglutide Weight LossAustin Gynecomastia Center

Gynecomastia treatment after semaglutide weight loss

There is a deep connection between weight gain, gynecomastia, and semaglutide used for weight loss. Weight gain is a very common cause of gynecomastia. It is estimated that over half of the population is overweight, and many will use semaglutide for weight loss. Many of the men in the overweight category will have enlarged male breasts (another term for gynecomastia) that will have to be managed after weight loss with semaglutide and other weight loss medications.

Weight gain causes an increase in chest fat. This fat sits in a sensitive area where all humans have breast tissue naturally. With an increase in fat amounts, there is increased production of estrogen (the female sex hormone), which acts on the tissue of the chest to cause a growth of breast tissue. This breast tissue is called gynecomastia in a male, and it will not go away with weight loss, as one would think. In fact, the only treatment for gynecomastia is a surgical procedure to remove the tissue and sculpt the chest as needed with liposuction.

After weight loss that can occur with Semaglutide, your body's skin may not retract fully, resulting in fullness, folds, and creases. In addition, although your chest will become smaller with some fatty tissue loss, the actual gynecomastia tissue remains and often appears more obvious when the rest of your body is smaller. Weight loss medications make gynecomastia appear worse.

The media talks about Ozempic face. I can introduce the term Ozempic Chest to describe the phenomenon of female-like breasts in a male (gynecomastia). Shedding pounds and gaining confidence are wonderful benefits of weight loss, but having gynecomastia is not.

How can plastic surgery improve your weight loss results? Plastic surgeons are experts at managing skin laxity after successful semaglutide use. This includes tummy tucks, skin tucks, face and neck enhancements, and gynecomastia treatment.
