Late 2009 I weighed 285 pounds. Over a four-year period I cut down to 175, gained 40 pounds lifting weights and eating good, then maintain 195 up until the day I had the surgery. I had man breast before the weight loss, doctors told me it wasn't gynecomastia so my insurance provider didnt cover... READ MORE

I had gynecomastia growing up and Im sure it left plenty of emotional scars but I can proudly say I did everything I could to make it better. I trained 6 days a week, ran 30miles a week on top of playing football and having a perfect diet. I was determined to fix this problem and in any other... READ MORE

I did a blunder and this feedback is to make sure that you guys don’t repeat the mistake I did. I am writing this post after completing nearly 5 months of surgery I am not based in India and just like other Non Resident Indian, I used this forum and other online gynaecomastia forums to zero i...

Dr. Delgado is a highly skilled surgeon who delivers extraordinary results. His reviews and before and after photos were the reason I chose him. He delivered results that met my high expectations. He took what I said seriously and did what he promised to do. I am convinced that I would have not... READ MORE

I have suffered with this problem of gynecomastia for many years. It has mentally and physically held me back, drained the life out of me, and caused me legitimate/real depression. I was not an easy case either. I came to Dr. Blau after having procedures done by 2 other doctors first who were no... READ MORE

I am not fat, i have a few extra pounds and i am considered confident and attractive. For years I have been trying to remain fit and work extra time on my chest. This helped abit in uplifting my chest but the nipple area wouldnt change and i would always have pointy nipples or abit of "man... READ MORE

Dr. Paul Lorenc and his staff have been extremely helpful and accommodating. I went into his office unsure and nervous about this procedure. I left there with confidence that I was making the right decision with Dr.Lorenc. They were always there to answer any questions that myself and my parents... READ MORE

I'm finally getting this surgery after decades of being teased and not being able to go shirtless anywhere because I look like a man with adolescent girl boobs. I literally can't imagine how much of a self confidence booster this is going to be to be able to go shirtless or buy what ever type of... READ MORE

I've always hated my chest; even when I lost weight and was in great shape, it still sagged and there was nothing that seemed to lift it. I decided to go with this procedure and while I'm only a week post-op, it was a sound investment. My discomfort from 1-10 is about a 7; it hurts to move in... READ MORE

I first went to see Dr. Blau in July of 2014 for a consultation for a condition known as "puffy nipples" or male gynecomastia. Dr. Blau's laid-back manner and optimistic outlook on the procedure helped reassure me and put me at ease. I couldn't recommend him enough for anybody considering this... READ MORE

From the moment I met Dr. Schuster I knew he was the right choice for me. He made me feel very comfortable and answered all my questions. He is very knowledgeable. He is not just a surgeon, but also an artist. The proof is in my results. It is like a dream come true. It has been 5 months... READ MORE

I had thought about having this work done for some time after hitting my weight loss goal. I first visited Dr. Genter two years ago, but didn't have the procedure done because I thought there would be a "better time". That is my only regret, I wish I would not have waited and had this done two... READ MORE

I'm so excited to finally pursue this long dream of mines. I'm getting gynecomastia correction surgery on March 18, 2015. I'll post pictures my results after then. Dr. Kalus is my doctor and he has been great to work with. He asked about my expectations and informed me of the possible outcomes... READ MORE

I had been living with gynecomastia since puberty, so I basically had this condition for more than twenty years. I had been looking into getting the surgery for a long time but had hesitated to go through with the procedure because of the cost and, mostly, because I was afraid that something... READ MORE

Hello everyone. Im 25 years old now and I'm from Germany, so please excuse the possible grammar mistakes :-) For almost 13 years I suffered from my man boobs. I was a thick child, with 236 lbs being my maximum weight when I was 17. From that day on, I decided to change my life. I ate... READ MORE

Genetically i always carried a lot of fat tissue around my breast area and as i started progressing in bodybuilding, it became more and more of a factor that could impede on my future success. You couldn't notice it that much unless i pointed it out because i always stay fairly lean but i have... READ MORE

I am having Gynecomastia surgery, along with liposuction on my abs and flanks, in two days. I am both excited and nervous. I am excited because I have wanted to have Gynecomastia surgery since I was 16, since before I knew that surgery was even possible. My Gynecomastia appeared when I was 15... READ MORE

I had been dealing with gynecomastia for about 6 years, and always wanted to get it removed. Though my case was mild, it was still bothersome to me. So finally at 22 I decided to pursue it. Of course you will have your doubts, but if you really want to improve the quality of your life its... READ MORE

First of all, the staff of Doctor Luis Redondo is unbelievable, Dr. Canahuate (the anesthesiologist), Dr. Rodriguez (assistant), Yamilka (Secretary), the nurses... everyone were very kind and caring. About the Medical Center: is the best I’ve ever visited, in and out of the Dominican Republic. ... READ MORE
