Interested in a Breast Reduction for Men? New Jersey Resident Jim Loves his New Chest Contour.

Posted November 1, 2011 by Paul M. Parker, M.D., FACS

Jim is a single, 32-year old design professional who recently had gynecomastia correction surgery with Dr. Parker.  Gynecomastia or “man boobs” is a common condition that reportedly affects 50% of adult males.  It can affect one or both breasts and men both young and old.

“I’m 32 and I’ve had this problem since puberty, for 20 years really.  I was very tired of dealing with it.  I had tried exercise, changing my diet and a strict combination of both.  Nothing helped.  In fact, by working my upper body so hard, I had made the problem worse.  My chest muscles got bigger making them look even larger.  I was really ready to do something about it,” explained Jim.

Jim started by looking on the internet to find more information about his condition.  He learned that gynecomastia correction is a relatively straightforward process but that it’s important to find a surgeon that does a lot of this type of surgery.  While Jim was searching for breast reduction for men, New Jersey doctor, Jim had come across the Parker Center website in his research and was impressed.

“As a graphic designer, I was impressed by the layout, the amount of information presented, the resources available, like the videos and testimonials.  It was a great professional presentation and really helped me decide that I was ready to get this problem taken care of and meet with Dr. Parker,” Jim said.


Dr. Parker was the only surgeon that Jim consulted for his surgery.  After meeting Dr. Parker, Jim felt that he was the right person to handle his surgery.  Jim feels that all the information and professionalism that was presented on the website came together when he had his consultation.

“Dr. Parker is one of the most sincere, warmest people I’ve ever me.  It was clear that this was a group of people who really care about what they do.  You can tell that Dr. Parker and his staff have put a lot of thought and care into the entire process.  They understood what a big decision this was for me.  It was very thoughtful and not machine like at all,” Jim described.

Jim had his surgery on his day off and took a few days off to recuperate.  He followed Dr. Parker’s instructions and describes his recovery as uncomfortable but not painful.  Jim knows the feeling of overdoing it in the gym and felt that his recovery didn’t even reach that level of discomfort.

Jim took a few days off from work and also had a weekend to give himself time to recover.  Jim felt that his recovery went even smoother that Dr. Parker had told him to expect.  He followed his medication schedule but never felt the need to take the narcotic pain medication.  Jim also took advantage of the three lymphatic massages as a part of his recovery and found that he really enjoyed them.

“I’m thrilled that I decided to take care of this problem.  My results are fantastic.  I’ve never been a clothes horse but I find myself buying clothes in my actual size now instead of hiding in larger baggy shirts.  My chest now looks the way it was supposed to.  I love the contour of my chest.  I’m really pleased,” exclaimed Jim.

When Jim was doing his research on the Parker Center website, one of the testimonials really made an impression on Jim.  It was the story of a 19 year old young man who had gynecomastia correction before heading off to college.  Jim felt that his history was a carbon copy of the young man’s and he believes that by telling his own story he might help someone his own age to make the decision to change their life.

Gynecomastia correct can alleviate the embarrassment that many men feel regarding the appearance of their chest.  As Jim and many others have discovered, diet and exercise cannot correct this condition.  With gynecomastia correction, avoiding the pool and beach, hiding behind large shirts and bulky sweatshirts can become a thing of the past.
