Gynecomastia Vests and the TSA

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. One thing they all have in common is the gynecomastia compression garment they use for the first three weeks after treatment. This helps with the swelling, the healing, and the compression feels good. The downside of the garment is that it can be uncomfortable to some patients particularly in the area around the underarms. But what do gynecomastia vests and […]

The Zone Classification System At The Austin Gynecomastia Center

I have devised a Gynecomastia Zone Classification System system at the Austin Gynecomastia Center that has been very useful in communicating with and treating gynecomastia patients. After my first 500 cases of gynecomastia, it became clear to me that there are very consistent zones of the male chest that can show signs of fullness, yet not all patients have the same combination of these zones. Developing this classification system has allowed my patients to effectively communicate the areas of concern and has allowed […]

Is SmartLipo Really An Effective Treatment For Gynecomastia?

My most challenging gynecomastia cases involve the consequences of SmartLipo treatment. SmartLipo is a liposuction device that is laser based and has been heavily marketed for over a decade as the ultimate form of liposuction because it claims to do everything anyone could want—no anesthesia, no bruising or swelling and perfect results every time! Is SmartLipo for gynecomastia and effective treatment? A decade later, the evidence tells me quite a different story. As a Senior surgeon in my town, I […]
