Gynecomastia can significantly impact self-esteem and emotional well-being
While many doctors perform gynecomastia surgery, almost none are as experienced or sought-after as Austin-based plastic surgeon Dr. Robert Caridi. While patients travel from all over the globe to be treated by Dr. Caridi, San Antonio gynecomastia surgery patients can receive unsurmountable care and results with a short drive to Austin Gynecomastia Center.
Austin Gynecomastia Center is the premier destination for gynecomastia surgery in South Texas and the nation.
Dr. Caridi is America’s favorite gynecomastia doctor, performing the procedure 400 times annually. As a pioneering plastic surgeon, his decades of experience have led him to develop advanced surgical techniques that other doctors can only emulate. To achieve the best results and ultimately your best life possible, you should trust Dr. Caridi and his team at Austin Gynecomastia Center.
While there are no bloodwork, scans, or other tests to confirm gynecomastia, this prevalent issue is characterized by excess tissue in the male chest that causes it to appear less masculine and can be diagnosed with a visual examination.
In most cases, male patients who notice that their chest appears feminine or stores tissues differently than other areas of their body are candidates for gynecomastia surgery. To undergo surgery, you should be in good overall health and not smoke. In addition, you should not have any underlying health conditions that could complicate your procedure or recovery. To discuss your candidacy for gynecomastia surgery, schedule your consultation with Dr. Caridi.
Austin Gynecomastia Center offers San Antonio patients flexible and personalized treatment, including virtual consultation and fast scheduling. Book your consultation for gynecomastia surgery with Dr. Caridi so that you can begin the next chapter of your life as soon as possible and with the best results possible.
Many patients return to work just one to two days after their gynecomastia surgery. Overall recovery is also speedy, with patients able to resume some exercise after two weeks. See full gynecomastia recovery instructions here or watch this video to know what to expect.
While the specifics of your personalized procedure will be determined during your consultation, most gynecomastia surgeries involve liposuctioning fat from the chest and removing glandular tissue from behind the nipple. Some cases may also involve removing excess skin and repositioning the nipple if needed.
While you may want to rest immediately after your surgery, you certainly may have a close friend or family member drive you home as soon as you wake up from surgery. However, there are some things you may want to consider before deciding to undergo the drive home on the day of surgery.
For example, some gynecomastia procedures require general anesthesia, which can make some patients feel nauseous. Such patients may want to limit the amount of time they ride in the car in the hours immediately following their surgery.
Also, many of our patients take the opportunity to enjoy Austin for several days after their surgery. With little downtime needed, you may choose to schedule your surgery at the end of the week and enjoy the “weirdest” city around all weekend. Finally, most patients return to our center the day after surgery for a follow-up appointment. The drive isn’t that far, so you can certainly go home after surgery and have someone drive you back the next day, but it might be easier to make a trip out of it.
