Usually appearing during puberty, gynecomastia refers to when a male grows abnormally large breasts. Despite common misconception, actual breast tissue, not excess fat, is present. As desired, that breast tissue and surrounding skin can be removed through male breast reduction surgery. LEARN MORE ›

I've dont a lot of research before the operation, and watched a lot of videos. I consulted 5 surgeons, and got price quotes from at least a dozen clinics & hospitals. I couldn't find any review/testimony/patient-story to help me choose a surgeon. in addition, I have recently lost my job +... READ MORE

I was one of those idiots who made the mistake of going to a non specialist in this condition first at age 26. Mistake. First Dr made it worse, however, with some chance I let Dr Blau do a 2nd surgery, and guess what? He fixed it all. No one in this field is better. His hands, his... READ MORE

I had gynecomastia since puberty. Doctors described it as "moderate". I wanted the surgery for years but had several concerns. 1. The cost - I had to wait until I had a good job so I could save up the money. Total cost was 6200 in Houston, TX. 2. Will the surgery actually fix the problem for... READ MORE

I had gynecomastia reduction in Tallahassee, FL on 4/3/15 after having had the condition since middle/high school. The surgery went well (not much brusing/discomfort after), but it seems that I have filled out again 2 months post op. I wore the compression garment for 4 weeks and then a... READ MORE

In my mid 20s I first noticed the signs of gynecomastia. Fast forward to a decade later and I started to notice irritation and tenderness, especially in my left chest area. I could feel a small lump right behind my nipple and got it checked out with my primary care physician. I had a mamogram... READ MORE

I'm a 36 y/o male that has been living with gynecomastia for the better part of 4-5 years. I can't pinpoint a specific time that I noticed the breast tissue growth, but I do know that it has been very painful if direct pressure is applied to either side of my chest. One of my hobbies is mixed... READ MORE

Uncomfortable in social gatherings, feeling down, decided to go for the procedure. Taken decision before 4 months. Shared with family one week earlier. Discussed with Dr several times, no second thought. Procedure lasted for 3 hours & under local anaesthesia. Negligible pain during... READ MORE

I've had this condition all my life. Just getting around to doing something about it. Have never taken a picture with my shirt off except for the one posted here. Can someone help and tell me how bad my condition is? Looking for a doctor with a fine eye to detail. Area doesn't matter, skill and... READ MORE

Dr.Linder has changed my life. I have always been self conscious about my chest fat and odd proportion, as well as a lip of fat around my abdominal section. I had never felt comfortable taking off my shirt. Dr.Linder was the only doctor I was comfortable going to. I did a lot of research on the... READ MORE

I'm really glad to share this experience with you all and I'm able to help someone make a decision to change their life. I've struggled with gynecomastia ever since childhood. I would never swim without a shirt. I would always dark, loose fitting clothing. As a senior in high school I weighed... READ MORE

If you have pseudogynecomastia and want lipo suction then Dr. Koch can do an adequate job. However, if there is glandular tissue that needs to be removed I would highly recommend going elsewhere. As another reviewer said, you might as well go to Toronto or NYC and get it done right the first... READ MORE

I received surgery for unilateral gynecomastia 6 months ago, after the first couple of weeks my chest looked awful again and continued to get worse as the swelling subsided, after three months of being told it was just swelling and it would settle I went for an ultrasound. There was still a... READ MORE

Having major surgery is a scary situation, add to that, doing it alone without a significant other or family by your side adds to the stress and apprehension. From the first moment of communication with Dr. Sameer to the evening I left CCRS, I knew I was in good hands. Dr. Sameer Karkhanis has... READ MORE

Dr. Dadvand is a highly skill gynecomastia surgeon in Los Angeles. His resume is impressive. He is double-board certified in general surgery and plastic surgery so I felt safer in the operating room if something were to go wrong. I visited 4 other doctors but I decided to go with Dr. Dadvand.... READ MORE

I have suffered from gynecomastia since puberty. It has always been psychologically painful to take my shirt off in public. It started around age 13, when my father and brothers were working in the yard with their shirts off. I wrestled with the idea of joining them, and so I did. About 2... READ MORE

I was lucky to have my surgery done by Dr.Naveen Rao, Apollo Hospitals, Bangalore. One master quality of him is, he is very genuine. I work in the United States and have lot of health complications like diabetes, hypertension, high cholesterol. I emailed him my photos and my health history... READ MORE

I have had gynecomastia, or enlarged male breasts, since I was around 4-5 years old. (See first picture) This year, being my first in college, I finally decided to fix this very frustrating issue, which was seemingly progressing for the worst throughout the years. (See second picture) After... READ MORE

If you have gynecomastia, read this. It may change your life. It has changed mine! I was in a never ending cycle of trying to improve my shape in the gym, seeing results everywhere except my chest, and quitting on myself because of how insecure my gynecomastia made me feel (even with a shirt on)...
