Gynecomastia is a condition that causes breast tissue enlargement in males. It’s more than a physical challenge; it can also affect individuals emotionally and psychologically. At Qazi Cosmetic Center, our board certified plastic surgeons in Orange County take a compassionate approach, understanding the profound impact gynecomastia can have on self-esteem and overall quality of life.
Gynecomastia presents itself as a noticeable enlargement of the breast tissue. It can affect one or both breasts and may occur unevenly. While it’s typically painless, some may experience tenderness or even pain in the breasts.
Gynecomastia is often linked to hormonal imbalances, specifically when estrogen levels are too high or out of balance with testosterone levels. Other causes can include certain medications, health conditions like hyperthyroidism or kidney failure, and lifestyle factors.
At Qazi Cosmetic Center, we believe in a thorough and careful diagnostic process. This may involve a physical exam, a review of medical history, and possibly additional tests like blood tests or imaging tests to rule out other conditions.
For many, the recommended treatment for gynecomastia is surgery. Our experienced surgical team specializes in procedures designed to reduce breast size and improve chest contours, supporting you throughout the journey—from the initial consultation to post-operative care. We utilize advanced liposuction techniques, as well as gland removal, and skin tightening with Renuvion.
Preventing gynecomastia can be challenging as it often relates to hormonal changes that are difficult to control. However, maintaining a healthy lifestyle, managing chronic conditions, and staying in contact with healthcare professionals can help manage risk factors.
Qazi Cosmetic Center is a leader in gynecomastia surgery, thanks to our Orange County plastic surgery team’s experience, our state-of-the-art facilities, and our commitment to patient care. We have consistently won awards as the best plastic surgery office in Orange County.

What is gynecomastia?

The most common cause is hormonal imbalances, particularly an imbalance between estrogen and testosterone levels. Other causes can include certain medications, health conditions like hyperthyroidism or kidney failure, and lifestyle factors.
Can gynecomastia be caused by drugs?
Yes, certain drugs, including anabolic steroids, certain anti-anxiety medications, and some cancer treatments, can trigger gynecomastia.
