Gynecomastia is the medical term used for enlarged male breast. It is a condition that can result in a female-like chest due to the abnormal growth of breast tissue. In many cases, gynecomastia is caused by an underlying hormonal condition. This condition can also be caused by certain drugs, steroids, major weight gain or loss, or genetics. Men with this issue generally feel anxious and embarrassed, more so in circumstances where the chest area is shown. Arlington, VA plastic surgeons Dr. Talal Munasifi and Dr. James Economides offer cosmetic breast surgery for men who have gynecomastia. This cosmetic surgery has a very high success rate. It is one of the more popular cosmetic surgeries for men at Advanced Plastic Surgery Center. Call our cosmetic office in Arlington, VA today to schedule a consultation to learn more.
"Always wonderful Thanks for the great support and kindness."- M.B. / Office Visit / Sep 20, 2018
"From start to finish I have had the best experience with Dr. Munasifi, Ms. Cami (patient coordinator) and the rest of the staff! I had a revision breast augmentation and a full tummy tuck. I decided to add the tummy tuck 5 days before the surgery and both the Dr. and surgery center were completely accommodating. Dr. Munasifi is so gentle during the surgery that you have minimal downtime. As long as you follow all pre and post-op instructions you will feel great after surgery. I had no pain and never had to take any pain medication besides Tylenol. Since the surgery, I have also gotten a facial and my first botox injections from PA Danielle (who is also very gentle). I live 1hr away but I plan to come here for everything in the future, completely worth it! I even have friends from different parts of the US that want to fly to Dr. Munasifi to have procedures done by him because of my experience and incredible heal time and results."- D.S. / Yelp / Jun 21, 2019

Liposuction is typically utilized during gynecomastia surgery. Performed under general anesthesia, liposuction removes excess fat from the chest wall. In some cases, a small incision near where the glandular tissue resides is required. Once the fat and loose skin have been addressed, Dr. Munasifi will tighten the existing skin. The areola will be reduced, or the nipple repositioned to a more natural male contour.
What To Expect
After your gynecomastia surgery, the chest will be wrapped with a medical garment to help try and eliminate swelling. In advanced cases where a more invasive technique was used, a drainage tube may be inserted to assist with fluid. The results following gynecomastia surgery are immediately seen and most patients are extremely pleased with the physical change. The incisions made during this procedure take a few weeks to heal and scarring is usually barely visible. You can get clearance from Dr. Munasifi to continue exercise and strength training, which will assist in complementing the final outcome.
