"Ever since I was 12 or 13, I suffered from gynecomastia. To me this was devastating, because not only were my breasts large, but one was visibly larger than the other. People definitely noticed my problem; kids at school made fun of me; and even my sisters pointed out the fact that I grew breasts."

During puberty, a hormonal imbalance of testosterone and estrogen can cause adolescent gynecomastia. The appearance of enlarged breasts or puffy nipples is normal. Most cases resolve naturally within a few years. However, if a man continues to suffer from enlarged breasts two to three years after their initial development, surgical intervention may be considered.
If left untreated, adolescent gynecomastia may continue into adulthood. In fact, one in four men between the ages of 50 and 70 suffer from adult gynecomastia. This form is the most common type of gynecomastia treated with surgery.
In general, male breast reduction surgery is a straightforward surgical procedure. The approach depends largely on the severity of the gynecomastia and may include a combination of breast gland removal and liposuction.
Gynecomastia surgeons share their thoughts on everything from the latest techniques and technological advancements to drug controversies and treatment updates.

Each gynecomastia surgeon has his or her own way of preparing for surgery. However, most follow the same protocols. This blog will describe how Dr. Miguel Delgado, M.D. does his preoperative visit to give men an idea of what they can expect.
In general, the preoperative appointment takes places approximately 2 weeks before surgery. The gynecomastia patient will first meet with Dr. Delgado to review all details of the surgery and how it is to be performed. The patient has an opportunity to ask Dr. Delgado any questions or state concerns they may have about the surgery. Preoperative photos will be taken.
