A Picture is Worth a Thousand Words

We all know that a picture is worth a thousand words. The two pictures above left me and my staff speechless when we looked at them on my computer one afternoon after a busy day in the office. What do you see when you look at these pictures? What was your initial reaction? How does it make you feel? What I see confuses me. I know that I am looking at two people of the opposite sex, but there are more […]

Gynecomastia Vests and the TSA

Treatment for gynecomastia at the AGC is routine. I perform over 125 cases a year for patients all over the globe.

At the Austin Gynecomastia Center, the surgery is boring and the results are exciting. I like it that way. I have told many of my patients that I once thought about retiring at the tender age of 56, but I was brought back into the love of medicine with the help of the AGC and all the wonderful folks with gynecomastia who I have had the privilege of meeting. I am reinvigorated and look forward to each and every day […]
