Doug’s Internet Research leads him to Parker Center for Gynecomastia Correction

Posted June 29, 2011 by Paul M. Parker, M.D., FACS

Doug is a 32-year old single professional guy who works out just about everyday.  Fit as he is, exercise was not helping to improve the appearance of his chest.  Doug suffers from gynecomastia or “man boobs”.  Gynecomastia, or enlarged breast tissue in men, is very common for men of all ages and sizes.  While up to 70% of boys in early to mid-puberty experience gynecomastia because of normal hormonal changes due to puberty, it also affects up to 65% of all middle-aged and elderly men.  In young boys, the situation usually corrects itself over time, but for about 25% it doesn’t.

“I’ve had this problem since puberty.  I was always a very fit but skinny kid.  I was always really self-conscious about my chest, but I just dealt with it.  Being really skinny, I thought it was really noticeable, but as I’ve gotten older and heavier it was worse,” explained Doug.

Male Breast Reduction Image Doug has a weightlifter friend who explained to him that no matter how much time he spent in the gym or body fat he lost, there would be very little improvement to the appearance of his chest.  His weightlifter friend, who also happens to be a doctor, explained that surgery was really the only option to correct the situation.

That conversation planted a seed in the back of Doug’s mind, so he did some internet research and found Dr. Parker’s website for the Parker Center.  He still wasn’t ready to proceed but had gotten a lot of information about the procedure.  About a year later Doug made the appointment and met with Dr. Parker.

“The website was great, not only did it give a lot information about the procedure, I really enjoyed seeing and reading all the testimonials from former patients.  It gave me confidence to go ahead with the surgery.  It made me feel that this was a professional organization that was proud of their work,” said Doug.

After Doug met with Dr. Parker and Angela, Doug was 100% sure he was ready to do the surgery. He had his surgery in April and there were no complications.  He was back to his normal routine in about 2 days and at his post-op check up had very minimal swelling and almost no bruising.

“The surgery went great.  No real pain, it just felt like I had overworked my chest in the gym.  It’s wonderful for me not to worry about this anymore.  It looks better than I could have imagined.  It’s very natural looking and everything is in proportion. Dr. Parker did a great job and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend him,” Doug stated.

Doug is ready to enjoy this summer boating, fishing and swimming with his friends and family.  He won’t ever have to think about his chest or worry about taking off his shirt.

Gynecomastia correction is done by removing the excess fat deposits and glandular tissue using Dr. Parker’s “scarless” technique to achieve a flatter, firmer and more contoured chest.  Dr. Parker and his staff at The Parker Center have helped dozens of male breast reduction New Jersey patients regain their self- confidence and increase their self-esteem.
