Gynecomastia Treatment In Younger Populations

Earlier this week The Eisemann Plastic Surgery Center discussed gynecomastia in male body builders and treatment to reverse the condition. However, the population of men affected by gynecomastia, the development of female-like breast tissue, goes far beyond to include young males in puberty, older men and men who are overweight. Fortunately for young men, the vast majority of gynecomastia cases will self-resolve without medical or surgical intervention. For the approximate 20% of cases that do not self-resolve, Dr. Michael Eisemann is able to evaluate the patient and determine a course of treatment. Depending on the young man’s medical history, Dr. Eisemann may recommend a consult with an endocrinologist to make certain that there is not a hormonal component to the patient’s problem. Gynecomastia surgery for young males usually involves a removal of the breast tissue. In cases where obesity is also an issue, liposuction may also be employed. Young males have an advantage because their skin tends to shrink back into place once the excess tissue is removed. Gynecomastia tends to make men feel self-conscious and insecure, and this is especially true with adolescent males. While excess breast tissue may seem like a trivial problem to parents or peers, helping a young man to fit in with his peers can be life changing.

Practice Policy Update Regarding COVID-19

Dr. Michael Eisemann, Dr. Bradley Eisemann, and the entire staff at Eisemann Plastic Surgery are committed to the health and safety of all of our patients and ourselves.

We are thankful to be connected to Houston Methodist Hospital, one of the most respected hospitals in the country. Because of this, our screening policy is aided by the hospital's official policies and checkpoint screening measures completed prior to entering our building. These measures allow us to do everything we can, at this point in time, to minimize the chance that we expose ourselves or our patients to someone who has been sick or contagious with the virus.

We are set up to perform new consults and patient follow-ups via ZOOM video conferencing.

As of Monday, March 23rd, our office is open. We are open and seeing select patients. If you are currently on the schedule, please call our office if you have any concerns about your own health.

While all major hospitals have stopped elective surgery at this time, we are very selectively performing indicated operative procedures in our procedure room and in our AAAASF certified operating room under local and IV sedation.

As always, both Dr. Michael Eisemann and Dr. Bradley Eisemann are available by phone and email to answer any questions you may have.
