What result can I expect after treatment of my gynecomastia?

This is an obvious concern for most patients – what are the results after gynecomastia treatment. I have always likened gynecomastia to a sandwich—the breast layers are the skin on the top and the muscle below and the gynecomastia is the meat in between. Successful treatment of gynecomastia means removing as much of the meat as possible, leaving a nice smooth layer of normal fatty tissue and contouring the appropriate Zones of the chest so the chest looks masculine and […]

Prohormones and Gynecomastia – How Do You Treat It?

The most common cause of gynecomastia seen at the AGC is residual chest fullness that doesn’t go away after puberty as it usually does in 85 percent of males. This is a bummer. It’s particularly difficult for a growing boy who is learning about life and sexuality between the ages of ten and 15.

Why Gynecomastia Treatment is a No-Brainer

Gynecomastia patients worry a lot. What if something bad happens? What if I get complications like I see on the Internet? Certainly I can make this go away myself.

Breast Augmentation with Breast Implants: Will You Pass the “Pencil Test?”

I just finished watching the movie “Breast Men.” It really brought back some memories from my thirty years in plastic surgery, especially my years of training at UT Medical School at Houston, not far from the hospital where breast implants first appeared.

Here we are several generations of […]
