How to Make the Most of Your Gynecomastia Treatment

How to rock your gynecomastia result and transition physically and mentally.

Gynecomastia, also known as “man boobs,”  is a condition where a man’s chest has the appearance of feminine breasts. This situation wears you down. It saps your confidence and your ability to fully engage the best in life. Each year the Austin Gynecomastia Center liberates about 350 men who have suffered from the miserable gynecomastia existence. Now what? What do you do after gyno surgery? How do you transition to your new existence?

I can tell you there is no playbook that is a step-by-step guide to a clear head. Along with my goal of improving the physical appearance of my patient’s chest, I do my very best to assure a full mental recovery. What would be the point of treatment if it didn’t include the ultimate goal of getting your mojo back?

Posture Makes Perfect

Posture is always the first step to recovery. It’s what you do that the rest of the world sees. Gynecomastia patients almost universally have poor posture—shoulders shrugged forward, and flexion of the upper thorax done to hide the appearance. Once you have graduated from the Austin Gynecomastia Center, the first marching order is to stand “tall and proud.” 

“Feel confident and look confident.”

There is no longer any reason to hide your chest — your gynecomastia is gone, and your true manly chest is real. You need to own this. Learn about the principles of good posture and practice this until you are there. Good posture will make you feel confident and look confident to the rest of the world. Remember too that good posture is also critical to the quality of your result during the healing process which lasts months!

Embrace the New You

All patients enjoy the mental recovery associated with gynecomastia treatment. Having treated thousands of patients, I see improvements in confidence, body self-image, social interactions, and overall quality of life. 

“Engage life on your terms.”

If you were my patient, part of therapy would involves me advising you to forget your old approach to life and fully engage all the activities you avoided. Stop doing the things you have done to cope with your gynecomastia. You’d no longer have to worry about going to the pool, avoiding certain clothing, and saying no when you wanted to say yes. Unshackled by the burden of gynecomastia, you could be free to engage life on your terms.

Making the Most of Change

Everyone knows that every dark cloud has a silver lining. With gynecomastia treatment comes the opportunity for patients to start anew, to change their lives for the better. Examples include improving social relationships, losing unnecessary weight, and getting into the best shape of their lives. It means finding a favorite Polo shirt and wearing it with confidence. It means stopping bad habits and living a happy and healthy life.
