When I was about 12 years old, I started noticing there was a problem with my chest and was then diagnosed with gynecomastia. When I was finally 14 years old I first spoke with a doctor about how to fix it because it was really bad, however the medical insurance didn't cover anything and they... READ MORE

Dr. Blau is a competent and gifted M.D. He has done a wonderful job for me correcting my gynecomastia. Revising my chest from the past surgeon was no problem for Dr. Blau. I was emotionally and physically in bad shape but, Dr. Blau made me feel and look so much better. His artistic hand shaped... READ MORE

Those days are gone where I had to be uncomfortable with my own body... Having a male breast reduction surgery was one of the best decision I have ever made in my life. I've been planning to have this surgery since I was in my early 20's but I'm so hesitant to do this primarily because of the... READ MORE

Total cost was 2,000 CAD for the liposuction. The removal of the glands themselves was covered by Canadian Health Insurance. My only concern is that my breasts still looks a little bit larger than they should. There still seems to be some scarred tissue under there and some swelling. I... READ MORE

My story. I’m your typical gynecomastia patient. As I started developing into a man, around age 13 I really noticed my chest. I would wear clothes to hide, posture with shoulders forward, whatever it took. I avoided swim parties. I got asked if I needed a bra. And at that time I didn't k... READ MORE

My consultation with Dr. Dadvand went extremely well. I was very much at ease within the first few minutes of talking with him. He told me what procedures he would preform on my chest (lipo and excision) and also showed me where he would make the incisions for lipo on my abs and flanks. He... READ MORE

My weight has always been and issue. The only thing worse than being the fattest boy in class, growing up, was having boobs being so much larger than any girl at school. PE or gym class was never a fun time and I've lost track over the years of how many times my male breasts have been a... READ MORE

I have dealt with gynecomastia for the majority of my life and I never thought it would change. It was such a hard thing to deal with growing up and the worst part was that I had no control over the way I looked and how I felt about myself. After my first consultation with a different surgeon I... READ MORE

The reason was simple: constant lack of confidence around com-padres, the opposite sex, family members, etc. I have always been into fitness and therefore gained consciousness about my body and how I look. As I grew older I realized that my nipples made me look like a female and it constantly... READ MORE

I always struggled with gynecomastia but was always afraid to address the issue. I researched online for well over a year and Dr. Blau kept popping up as one of the best doctors for the procedure. I finally decided that I would just make a simple phone call. When I called the office, Mary Ann... READ MORE

I thought I always had extra fat around my chest and know matter how much muscle I gained or skinny I got, it didn't make a difference. My "normal" (high school) weight was 180 pounds. Over the years I have put on 30 pounds of muscle, weighing 210 pounds, and have slimed down to 162 pounds in... READ MORE

Just like a lot of the guys on here, I've experienced a light form of gynecomastia since I was about 15. It bothered me a bit throughout the years.. taking my shirt off at out-door events, wearing particular clothing, etc.. I finally decided to get something done about it, and so far I can say...

I had my surgery done with Dr Blau on August 12th 2014. A simple search on google for gynecomastia returns numerous web page results and forum posts of people who all highly praise Dr Mordcai Blau and consider him one of the BEST when it comes to gynecomastia surgery. Gynecomastia was a... READ MORE

Dr Jake Lim and his team come highly recommended. I went in for my initial appointment just before Christmas 2014. I wanted a man breast reduction and a tummy tuck. Dr Lim explained that a tummy tuck isn't going to achieve what I wanted it to achieve and suggested a body lift instead. Dr Lim... READ MORE

I was at John L. Williams office today for pre-op consult and off the cuff (because I had been reading about Gynecomastia on REAL-SELF) asked about my chest. Even though I work out It is still flabby and not flat. So after a few minutes of examination he said on a scale of 1-10 I am a 3 with... READ MORE

This surgery has been the greatest thing that has ever happened in my life. Dr. Schlesinger was able to completely alter my chest and in doing so he has changed nearly every aspect of my day to day life. I wake up proud with my new chest and feel confident to take on whatever comes my way. My... READ MORE

I’m posting this story to share my experience with a subject that’s addressed too rarely in our society, but yet which affects many men: gynecomastia, AKA “man-boobs,” “man-tits,” etc… Hopefully my story will provide some encouragement for those who are dealing with this issue and might be cons...

In January of 2015 I did surgery to correct it. My chest looks flat but nipples look swollen as if there is gland there.
