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?

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 […]
