Male Breast Reduction New Jersey Patient Finally Has Chest he couldn’t get in the Gym

Posted May 3, 2011 by Paul M. Parker, M.D., FACS

Eric is a 38 year old public safety professional who has been embarrassed about his “man boobs” since puberty. He is married with a young child and has wanted to have the male breast reduction in New Jersey for a very long time.

“I’ve been thinking about the surgery since I was like 13 or 14. I’ve been ready for a long time. I never thought it would be this easy or I would have done it sooner,” explained Eric.

Eric suffers from gynecomastia, a condition that refers to the enlargement of male breast tissue. It can affect one or both breasts and is very common in young and older men alike. In most men, gynecomastia is caused by excess fatty tissue in the breast. In some, male breast enlargement is due to a combination of excess fatty tissue and firmer, glandular tissue together.

“I never, absolutely never, took my shirt off in public. I used to take a lot of crap from my family and other guys about not taking my shirt off. I was just so self-conscious about it. I was amazed when I was researching the problem just how common it is because no one talks about it,” said Eric.

As Eric discovered no amount of working out could improve the look of his chest. Prior to having children, Eric worked out 5-6 days a week and never saw an improvement in the contour of his chest. Eric always wore two shirts, either two t-shirts or one t-shirt under a button-down shirt to help hide the condition. Loose baggy sweatshirts and t-shirts were his best friend.

Once Eric decided the time was right to do something about his condition, he and his wife did some research on the internet and found the Parker Center website. Eric liked how the website explained the procedure completely with videos and testimonials as well as lots of before and after photos.

“In my research, every article said the most important thing was finding a surgeon who does a lot of gynecomastia surgery. Most plastic surgeons do it, but Dr. Parker had so many photos and testimonials, it was clear that this is a surgery he does a lot. Also my wife’s physician recommended that for male breast reduction, New Jersey surgeon Dr. Parker “was the best choice,” Eric stated.

Setting up the consultation and meeting Dr. Parker was an easy, comfortable experience for Eric. Being so self-conscious about his condition, he was nervous having to show strangers his chest and talk about it, but Dr. Parker and his staff were so warm and professional, Eric felt comfortable right from the beginning.

Eric had surgery three weeks ago and is already thrilled about how his chest looks. Everyday it looks better and better and Eric has no qualms about being back in the locker room.

“I was so nervous, but it was a really good experience. Everyone at the Parker Center is very good, very professional. Dr. Parker is very easy to talk to; it was just like talking to another guy. He made it very easy for me. Everything went exactly the way he explained, no surprises,” explained Eric.

Eric wife is thrilled with his new chest and can’t believe how good it looks already. Eric is looking forward to a summer of beach, boating and family pool parties without any of his previous embarrassment.

“It looks great right now and I know it’s only getting better over the next couple of months. It was the best thing I ever did. I’m so happy I had it done,” said Eric.

Gynecomastia correction is done by removing the excess fat deposits and glandular tissue as necessary to achieve a flatter, firmer more contoured chest. Dr. Parker performs this procedure through one or two very small incisions in the armpit area so that scars are not visible. He and the staff of The Parker Center have helped dozens of male breast reduction New Jersey patients regain their self-confidence and increase their self-esteem.
