Just three short weeks ago, George, a 20 year old college student, had surgery to correct his gynecomastia. Gynecomastia is the medical term for enlarged breast tissue in men. It affects men of all ages and sizes and can be present in one or both sides of the chest.
George who has suffered with gynecomastia since puberty has always been very self-conscious about his chest. He would never take his shirt off at pools or at the beach, in fact avoiding these types of get-togethers at times.
“I’m a really active type of guy, always running and working out. No matter what I did, or how hard I worked in the gym, my chest never went down. It was really frustrating,” explained George.
The thought of going back to college and his dorm life prompted George to do something about his chest. He spoke to his mom about it and she suggested he go online to find out more about breast reduction for men. New Jersey-based The Parker Center for Plastic Surgery was one of the first to catch his eye.
“The Parker Center website was by far the best one I found. There was tons of information for me including lots of photos, videos and testimonials. I was really impressed,” George stated.
Even though George lives on Long Island and the Parker Center is in Northern New Jersey, George convinced his mom that they should make an appointment. He also made appointments with two other local plastic surgeons on Long Island.
“After I went to the Parker Center, I was convinced. The place was great, the people who work there were fantastic. I told my mom that this was the place for me and she agreed. We never even went to see any other plastic surgeon,” said George.
George went home two hours after his gynecomastia correction surgery with just a couple of small stitches near his armpits. He wore the tight fitting vest that Dr. Parker sent him home in, as recommended and had a very comfortable recovery. George really didn’t experience much pain and after about 10 days was ready to get back to his workouts but eased himself back into the gym slowly. Now after three weeks he’s doing his regular workouts without any trouble.
George is thrilled with the new flat contour of his chest. It’s given him the physique that he spent so long in the gym trying to achieve. Since he’s going back to college in a few weeks, George is making the most of his remaining summer by hitting the beach without a t-shirt to cover up.
“I’m so happy that I had this done, the results are amazing. The pain was so minimal and results are so incredible. It’s by far the best thing I’ve ever done. It was well worth it,” explained George.
