Gynecomastia in Plano, TX
What is gynecomastia?
Gynecomastia is a common condition in which an overgrowth of fatty and glandular tissue leads to breast overdevelopment in men. In the majority of cases, there is no known cause, although a number of factors may be involved, including liver conditions, alcohol and anabolic steroid use, obesity, and some medications. The condition can persist over time, leading to embarrassment and loss of self-esteem. If you have firm, elastic skin and are in good physical and emotional health, but you are dissatisfied with overly large male breasts, gynecomastia surgery in Plano, TX, might be the answer.
How is gynecomastia performed?
Dr. Wilcox uses state-of-the-art technology to perform ultrasonic liposuction as part of his innovative gynecomastia surgery for residents of Plano, TX. The Wilcox Gynecomastia Technique has many advantages over traditional methods. It uses a titanium cannula vibrating at a very high frequency to generate positive and negative pressure waves, which easily break down and suction out fatty and glandular tissue. A special instrument is then inserted underneath the arm through a small incision, and any remaining glandular tissue is cut out. In extreme cases involving large amounts of fatty tissue, excess skin is also removed. There is some minor discomfort, but most men can return to normal activities within a few days.
