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. During these years, it becomes quite clear to them that having breasts is associated with girls, not boys. It won’t be long before they realize that […]

The Gynecomastia Brotherhood

Having gynecomastia is no fun. It’s something that you have to deal with day in and day out. Over time, it wears you down and it begins to affect every aspect of your life: how you think about yourself, how others perceive you, and how you interact with the world around you. Guys generally live with this alone. This is not something that is shared with others, even those with whom you are most close. I started the Austin Gynecomastia […]

What if Previous Gynecomastia Treatment Did Not Meet Your Expectations?

I receive email inquiries and Virtual Consultations from all over the world about everything that has to do with gynecomastia. A common patient concern is with previous gynecomastia surgery, or male breast reduction treatment, that has produced disappointing results.

I reassured him that I felt very comfortable that I could take on his moderately challenging case and achieve the result that I had described. “I can’t give you a 100 percent guarantee, but I feel confident that we can […]

Is the Vaser treatment of gynecomastia a “game changer” at the Austin Gynecomastia Center?

Is the Vaser Treatment of Gynecomastia A “Game Changer” At The Austin Gynecomastia Center?

Vaser treatment for gynecomastia is a liposuction machine that contours fat with ultrasonic (sound) energy. This is different from standard liposuction that uses a cannula (tube) attached to a suction machine. Liposuction machines such as Laser, Power Assisted, Ultrasound, among others, are all alternatives to achieve the same endpoint, but Vaser has clearly been revolutionary at the AGC: I have used it in over fifty gynecomastia treatment surgery patients with impressive results, and this coming from someone known to be […]

Gynecomastia Vests and the TSA

Gynecomastia Vests And The TSA

Treatment for gynecomastia with surgery 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 […]
