A World-Renowned Gynecomastia Expert

Gynecomastia surgery is the most frequently performed procedure by Dr. Miguel Delgado, and he is one of the best male breast reduction surgeons in the country. Not only do patients travel from all over the world to see him; he also owns and operates the largest gynecomastia forum in the world, gynecomastia.org. As a world-renowned gynecomastia expert, Dr. Delgado has treated thousands of men and boys experiencing this condition from not only in the Sonoma area, but all over the world. He also performs revision male breast reduction for men who are unhappy with the results from a different surgeon. 

What is Gynecomastia?

Dr. Delgado sees more and more patients every single year for male breast reduction. This is because more and more men are becoming comfortable with the idea of changing their body to improve their confidence and quality of life. Gynecomastia commonly develops during adolescence, when the hormones are changing. It is characterized by female-appearing breasts on a male chest. While the condition sometimes goes away, it sometimes remains for the individual’s entire life, unless treated. The only option for true gynecomastia is gland excision via surgery. The outcome from the best male breast reduction procedures is life-changing. Patients feel much better about themselves and often have a whole new outlook on life.  

What to Expect in Your Consultation

Before your male breast reduction, you will meet with Dr. Delgado in a consultation. This is a very important part of the process, as it allows both you and Dr. Delgado to understand your goals and the process. The first thing that will happen is an examination of your chest. Dr. Delgado will assess your skin quality, tissue, and your specific areas of concern.

This is a helpful evaluation because sometimes an individual has pseudogynecomastia instead of true gynecomastia. (This means that the breast development is a result of weight gain and can be treated without surgery.)

Dr. Delgado will show you pictures of other gynecomastia patients to go over your available options to get the best gynecomastia surgery outcome. He will take you step-by-step through the procedure and recovery process so that you know exactly what to expect, and he will also answer any questions you have. 

Gynecomastia Surgery Details

The goal of gynecomastia surgery is to achieve the patient’s goals and help the chest appear more masculine, with an overall smoother contour. Dr. Delgado concentrates not only on the chest, but the surrounding areas to deliver better balance. To do this, he often utilizes liposuction as well. His approach also involves working on the patient at a 70-80 degree angle so that he can see how gravity affects the patient’s chest. This allows for a better result. The gynecomastia surgical procedure takes 4-5 hours. Stitches and dressings can be removed in approximately four weeks, and the chest will look good in a few months.
