San Francisco, CA-Gynecomastia.org is known as the world’s best resource for information about gynecomastia, also known as male breast reduction, moobs, man boobs, etc. Before the inception of gynecomastia.org in 1998, there was very little information available on the subject, and men suffered in silence, not aware of the prevalence of the condition.
With the advent of gynecomastia.org and other media outlets, gynecomastia is becoming recognized as a condition affecting about 60% of men at some point in their life. It has become a topic of the more you know, the more you want to know, for example watch for next month’s blog here on “CoolSculpting for Pseudo-Gynecomastia”.
In addition to the forums where men and young men can share stories and get support, the site offers a directory to help men find a gynecomastia specialist in their area. In addition to all these features, there is a huge photo gallery showing many before and after pictures of the member surgeons, including videos of patient’s experiences and results. There is a section on scientific articles covering topics from the history of the procedure, pathology, indications, treatment, etc.
Lastly, there is a blog section where the member surgeons can post on a variety of relevant topics, most recently a blog by Dr. Delgado. The recent post is on “Minimally Invasive Male Breast Reduction”. This is one of Dr. Delgado’s favorite topics that he refers to as the “light pull-through procedure”. This procedure has been around for a long time but has been greatly improved upon in recent years.
The blog explains that not all men are candidates for this procedure; it is for the man with puffy nipples and/or a small breast mound, no more than the equivalent of an A or B cup. There is a short 1 minute video showing some of the procedure, where tissue is being removed through a small incision after fat has been removed by liposuction. There are many advantages of this lesser invasive procedure including; no need for post-operative drains, a shorter amount of time in surgery, a faster recovery and with a smaller incision comes a smaller scar that heals to almost undetectable at the edge of the areolar.
To determine if you might be a candidate for this minimally invasive procedure or CoolSculpting, call for a consultation with Dr. Delgado at his 450 Sutter Street, San Francisco office or his 165 Rowland Way, Novato office in Marin County, at 415 898-4161.
