Gynecomastia in Fort Lauderdale, FL
Board Certified Plastic Surgeon Dr. F. Leigh Phillips, III, PA, FACS is Coral Springs, Fort Lauderdale and South Florida’s Source for Plastic Surgery and the Ultimate in Non-Surgical Aesthetic Enhancements, including gynecomastia.
Gynecomastia often occurs early in life, and the “breast buds” typically disappear with age. Some men, however, have enlarged breasts as a result of medical conditions such as liver or lung cancer, cirrhosis of the liver and overactive thyroid glands. Hormone imbalances and other factors such as alcohol and drug use can also cause men to have enlarged breasts.
Signs of Gynecomastia
If you live in the Coral Springs or Fort Lauderdale area and are concerned about having gynecomastia, contact Dr. F. Leigh Phillips, III, PA, FACS for a consultation appointment. Dr. Phillips will evaluate your case and determine the best possible treatment plan. With gynecomastia, your breasts may feel firm. Men should also perform self-examinations for lumps, which may indicate breast cancer.
Treatment for Gynecomastia
In many cases, gynecomastia resolves over time, especially if the condition is due to an underlying medical condition. When the medical condition is treated, the breasts typically return to normal size. Dr. Phillips may recommend estrogen therapy if your gynecomastia is due to high levels of estrogen in your body. If surgery is an option, the procedure for gynecomastia is similar to breast reduction surgery in females.
