Gynecomastia Surgery for Out-Of-Town Patients

Gynecomastia is a troubling condition that causes enlargement of the breast tissue in men, which leads to the appearance of “man boobs.” Caused by an imbalance in estrogen and testosterone, the condition may affect one or both breasts. Gynecomastia most often develops during periods of hormonal change, such as after birth, during adolescence, or during the later years of life, but it can occur at any point in a man’s life.

While gynecomastia is not associated with any significant physical problems, it can severely affect a man’s self esteem. Breasts are strongly associated with femininity, a trait that is unwelcome when describing the male physique. Men with gynecomastia may try to hide their condition by wearing heavy clothing and avoiding activities such as swimming or going to the beach with their family. As feelings of shame and unhappiness with their bodies increase, some men seek medical help.

Dr. Miguel Delgado, the Authority on Gynecomastia

Dr. Delgado has worked with countless number of men whose lives have become challenging due to the embarrassment of their enlarged breasts. He is an expert in gynecomastia surgery, a plastic surgery procedure designed to reduce the size of the breast area and provide a more masculine, natural contour. For 25 years, Dr. Delgado has focused his career on perfecting male breast reduction so that men can regain control over their bodies and lives. With over 1,000 surgeries performed on boys and men, Dr. Delgado has become one of the leading authorities on gynecomastia.

Consult with Dr. Delgado

With offices in San Francisco and Novato, Dr. Delgado has become a top choice for men who wish to undergo gynecomastia surgery in Northern California. Patients frequently travel in from Santa Rosa, San Jose, Petaluma, Napa, and other surrounding communities to consult with him.

If you live outside of the Bay Area, don’t let this stand in the way of consulting with Dr. Delgado. Gynecomastia is a challenging surgery, so it’s important to pick a doctor who can help you achieve the results you desire the first time around. Based on our experience working with out of town patients, we have created a process to provide you with the best experience possible. You can be confident that our team will make the consultation and surgical process as easy and smooth as possible for you.

Scheduling a Consultation

We offer our patients the option of a Skype or phone consultation with Dr. Delgado. If you live in San Jose, Santa Rosa, Napa, or Petaluma, you may find it easy enough to drive to our San Francisco or Novato office for your consultation; however, if you prefer not to make the drive more than once, you are welcome to consult via phone or Skype. To arrange a phone or Skype consultation, we request that you contact us with the following information:

  • Your name
  • Your age, weight, and height
  • Photos of your chest from the front and profile
  • Your phone number and the best times to reach you

We will then contact you to set up your remote consultation appointment. During your consultation, Dr. Delgado will evaluate your condition and discuss your surgical options.

After your consultation (whether by phone/Skype or in person), we will send you a detailed quotation for your gynecomastia surgery. If you choose to proceed, we will schedule a date for your surgery and mail you a comprehensive information packet that explains what you need to do prepare for surgery.

Assistance We Provide to Our Out-of-Town Patients

We usually ask our gynecomastia surgery patients to arrive one or two days before their surgery. We recommend that our patients stay at Novato Oaks Inn, which is located just a few miles away from our surgery center. There is a free shuttle for hotel guests that can take you to our office, the surgery center, and other local businesses during your recovery. We have arranged a special rate with the hotel, so please be sure to mention Dr. Delgado when you make your booking. During your stay, our team will be happy to provide recommendations on restaurants and attractions, and answer any questions you may have.

We ask that you remain in town for at least one week following your surgery. This allows for adequate time to recover before your trip home and provides easy access to Dr. Delgado for follow up appointments. After you return home, Dr. Delgado will continue to check in with you by phone, email, and/or Skype to track your recovery and ensure that a satisfactory result is achieved.
