What is Gynecomastia?
The scientific term, gynecomastia, is used for enlarged male breasts. It is a condition that can cause a female-like chest due to abnormal breast tissue. Many times, gynecomastia is caused by an underlying hormonal issue. It can also be caused by certain drugs, steroids, weight gain, or genetics. Men with this condition typically feel anxious and embarrassed, especially in situations where the chest is exposed, such as at the pool or gym. To address these concerns, Dr. Husam Elias performs gynecomastia surgery to reduce the breast size and create a more normal appearance. Set up a consultation at Southern California Center for Surgical Arts to hear more about male breast reduction surgery at our Los Angeles, CA office.
How is Gynecomastia Treatment Performed?
The cause of gynecomastia can include imbalanced hormones, medications, or certain medical conditions, such as obesity. Dr. Elias will conduct a thorough consultation and exam to determine why you are experiencing gynecomastia. He will also review your medical history in order to determine if you would be a good candidate for gynecomastia surgery. The surgery itself is performed under general anesthesia and involves liposuction, which inserts a cannula into the skin to loosen and suction out fat tissue. In more severe gynecomastia cases, a skin tightening technique may also be used. After male breast reduction surgery, patients will experience swelling and may need to wear a compression garment for 1 – 2 weeks. Most people can expect to resume their normal routines within a few days, and exercise can be incorporated after about a month.
Southern California Center for Surgical Arts Reviews
I took my daughter in for a consult regarding getting her wisdom teeth removed. Everyone was very nice and explained everything in detail. Dr. Pouya is very nice and explained the whole process to us from beginning to end. They were nice enough to schedule her surgery the following week since I wanted her to recover before she went back to school. I am very pleased with the whole office and how well the surgery went. I will definitely recommend Dr. Pouya to anyone needed their wisdom teeth removed.

Fantastic experience start to finish. I had Asian Rhinoplasty by Dr Elias and can not be happier. I love my nose so much, I get compliments from my friends about how cute and how it fits my face well.
I had Silicone breast implants by Dr Elias, I went from flat to fab in under an hour, I love my new addition:)I came to Dr Elias as referral from a friend of mine who had hers done by him a few years ago and they still looked fantastic, so I decided to follow him on IG to see his work, it didn’t take long before I booked a consultation with him. He was thorough, knowledgeable and reasonably priced compared to other places I consulted with in the past. I’m extremely happy with my results, post op care was great, he saw me so many times to check the healing of my surgery. I can’t say enough about my results. I love ’em..
My experience with this office was absolutely stellar. Firstly, the staff welcomes you warmly when you arrive. Diana (doctor’s assistant) met me in the exam room. Diana has a way of instantly making you feel comfortable and any nervousness you may be feeling is dissipated.... Because you can’t stop laughing. Then enters Dr. Elias.... He is extremely approachable, honest, and knowledgeable. It doesn’t hurt that he has multiple degrees. I am ecstatic that I found this business:
