Gynecomastia means female-like breasts. It is a condition in which there is an enlargement of the breast in the male patient, it is often seen in men who take steroids for body building. The condition can be corrected by liposuction or liposuction plus surgical removal of breast tissue.
Dr. Barrera performs all aesthetic surgery procedures at his Accredited Ambulatory Surgical Facility (AAAASF) under IV sedation and local anesthesia, without the need for general anesthesia (painless during the procdure and minimal pain afterwards). This provides added safety and faster recovery. Most patients are able to go home within an hour from the end of the 1 to 2 hour procedure with minimal discomfort.
