What is Gynecomastia?
Gynecomastia is the medical term for enlarged male breasts that can result in a feminine chest due to abnormally growing breast tissue. Many times, gynecomastia is caused by an unknown hormonal problem or by certain drugs, steroids, obesity, or genetics. Men with this issue often feel frustrated and anxious when their chest is exposed, such as by the pool or in the gym. Oklahoma City, OK plastic surgeon Dr. Kamal Sawan performs cosmetic breast treatment for men who suffer from gynecomastia. This cosmetic treatment has very high success rates and is one of the more common cosmetic procedures for men.
"I am so happy I chose Dr. Sawan for my breast reduction surgery. Two people recommended him to me which prompted my initial consultation. I knew he had an impressive career and expertise, but at that first meeting I found there to be an ease about him that made me trust him immediately. He was the surgeon for me. His staff is great, too. Knowledgeable, efficient and nice! You just know you’re in good hands. My whole experience from pre-surgery visits to follow-ups and the actual surgery itself has been so positive. Dr. Sawan listened and created exactly what I wanted. I’m super happy with my results. I highly recommend Sawan Surgical Aesthetics!"- B.R. / Google / Jul 12, 2020
"Let me tell you about Dr. Sawan. He took on my case after several other plastic surgeons either were too scared to operate on me due to a health condition I have or wouldn’t even see me until after I went through radiation. Dr Sawan not only saw me, he was confident he could not only perform the surgery but was sure I would be fine and heal easily. He and his office worked with and got insurance to cover things. His office staff was amazing to help us through the insurance chaos. Even through surgery delays due to Covid, his office stayed in touch with me and scheduled my surgery as soon as the surgery center was open. He was upbeat and encouraging on the day of my surgery knowing I was nervous due to my husband not being able to be with me. He took time to talk to him and explain everything to him and he was so sweet and gentle through my hospital stay. He sent all the removed tissue off to pathology and it all came back negative which resulted in me having NO RADIATION!!! 🎉🎉 I’ve healed perfectly, had no issues with my health condition and feel like I’ve been given a new lease on life! I have many amazing doctors on my cancer team but Dr Sawan has gone above and beyond to help us be informed and stay positive. Today I got an “Everything looks great” and a clearance to go back to go back to “whatever I want to do”. I highly recommend Dr. Kamal Sawan if you ever need a plastic surgeon. He’s the BEST!"- K.S. / Google / Jul 10, 2020
"After losing 100 pounds, I was left with lots of flab and extra skin. I had a 3D body lift. The surgery went smoothly With no complications at all! Dr Sawan was able to remove 16 pounds of superfluous skin and left me with perky breasts and tight abs. His work is AMAZING! I can’t even believe I am looking at myself when I walk by the mirror. I highly recommend Dr Sawan for any cosmetic procedure. He has a very helpful, kind staff and you will be treated with highest respect."- M.R. / Google / Jun 29, 2020
"I began my journey 9 years ago with weight loss surgery. I lost 128 pounds after weight loss surgery and within the last year I started working out in the gym, lifting weights. I wasn't seeing the results I thought I would see due to the fact that I had extra skin from being overweight previously. I went to see Dr. Sawan and talked to him. He gave me his recommendation and showed me pictures. He felt that I had very little fat and was actually toned from lifting, but my extra skin was getting in the way of my body showing the hard work I had put in. My surgery was May 14th. I can't say enough good things about Dr. Sawan. He did a fantastic job! The office staff were extremely kind, professional, and considerate. He let me ask every little question I had to ask and was very patient and caring. I look better than I have ever looked in my life. I'm excited to be back in the gym and enhance what Dr. Sawan has done for me."- K.S. / Google / Jun 11, 2020

Can I Get Gynecomastia Surgery?
If you have embarrassing, excess breast tissue that won't go away through a healthy lifestyle or exercise and diet, you may benefit from male breast reduction surgery at Sawan Surgical Aesthetics. Teenagers can also benefit from gynecomastia surgery; however, it's important to note that a secondary procedure may be needed during adulthood if new breast tissue continues. In your initial consultation with plastic surgeon Dr. Sawan, treatment considerations will be given, including the possibility of moving forward with surgery to correct the condition.
How is Gynecomastia Surgery Performed?
To begin your gynecomastia surgery, you will be put under general anesthesia, then liposuction will be used as a way to reduce excess fat tissue from the chest wall. From there, any loose or wrinkled skin will be removed to produce a tighter appearance. The nipple area and surrounding areola will be surgically reshaped and placed into a proper position. For most men, this technique requires a small incision in proximity to where the glandular tissue has formed. After the pockets of fat and excess skin have been removed, Dr. Sawan will pull together the remaining skin and create a slimmer look on your chest.
What Can I Expect After My Gynecomastia Surgery?
As your gynecomastia treatment is finished, your chest will be secured with a medical garment to help reduce bruising and swelling. In advanced cases where a reconstructive technique was used, a small tube for draining may be properly positioned to assist with fluid, in which Dr. Sawan will discuss with you during your consultation. Your results will be visible almost immediately. The incisions made during treatment take time to heal, and scarring is usually barely visible. However, it's important to make sure you follow Dr. Sawan's at-home care instructions to help with the healing process. Dr. Sawan will give you instructions on when it is safe to incorporate exercise and weight training, which will complement the end results. After you're healing process, you will be left with an enhanced chest and sleek figure.
