How To Choose The Best Gynecomastia Surgeon

Without a doubt, this is the most important consideration in the treatment of gynecomastia. The surgeon is going to determine the success or failure of your gynecomastia surgery procedure. Experience, price and location are very important in the decision making process. Considering that there are many medical practitioners who say they treat gynecomastia, how can you best evaluate a surgeon to determine if they merely dabble in gynecomastia, or are “crunchers” — surgeons who perform over 100 cases a year […]

The Zone Classification System at the Austin Gynecomastia Center

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.

Developing this classification system has allowed my patients to effectively communicate the areas of concern and has allowed […]

Gynecomastia And Tubular Breast Condition

A tubular breast is a condition where the tissue beneath the nipple areola complex herniates or pushes through the areola. It looks elongated, narrow and very full. The surrounding chest area may or may not be full as well. It is one of the worst forms of […]

At What Age Am I Too Old To Get Gynecomastia Treatment?

If you spend any time on my website learning about gynecomastia, also known as “man boobs,” you will observe that most of the gynecomastia before and after photos on the site are patients 35 years and younger. Someone recently asked me about the gynecomastia surgery age range and if his age of 56 meant he wasn’t a candidate for treatment, even though he has lived with it his entire life. The short answer is that there really is no age […]
