Adolescent Gynecomastia

When Jason’s mom discovered her son was searching for information, she realized her son’s breast development was causing him more stress than she realized. Jason’s pediatrician had told them that his male breasts would probably resolve on their own within two years without any type of intervention. However, if his moobs remained after those two years, then they may be permanent, and can only be corrected by surgery.

Jason Schedules Surgery

After three years, Jason’s mom delicately asked her son if he would like a consultation with gynecomastia specialist, Miguel Delgado, M.D. Jason seemed very relieved to get support from his mother but his embarrassment was very obvious, and he asked if his father could take him for a consultation. Father and son met with Dr. Delgado; they were impressed with Dr. Delgado, his sensitive staff, and state of the art surgery center.  They were impressed with Miguel Delgado, M.D.’s expertise which was revealed through many before and after pictures of male breasts, some of which can be viewed here:

Surgery Scheduled!

With much anticipation, Jason’s surgery was scheduled. Although he was quite nervous, he told his parents that it was “a piece of cake!” He had a very easy recovery, and before long he was able to enjoy all the outdoor activities that required removal of his shirt within a very short time. View Jason’s before and after gynecomastia surgery pictures below.

Dad’s Turn

Jason and his parents were elated with his surgical results; in fact, Jason’s father announced that he was going to schedule male breast reduction surgery for himself with Dr. Delgado. Jason’s mom was surprised that her husband wanted surgery; she had no idea that his man boobs bothered him, as they never bothered her.

The Light Pull-Through Procedure

Jason’s father, Tom scheduled a consultation. Tom was surprised to find that since his gynecomastia was only moderate and he had good skin elasticity, that he was a candidate for the gynecomastia treatment referred to as the “light pull-through” procedure. The light pull-through procedure is less invasive and has a faster recovery. A 3 to 5 mm incision is made at the lower edge of the areola where the fat and tissue are removed with a pickle fork type instrument. Since the light pull-through procedure is less invasive, the gynecomastia cost is significantly less.

Tom’s Before and After Pictures

Tom’s only regret is that he didn’t have male breast reduction surgery sooner.
