Gynecomastia can lead men to feel self-conscious of their appearance and have a debilitating effect on their lives. It can lead to men trying to hide their chest area and impact their day-to-day comfort and activities. For men who have received gynecomastia surgery and are unsatisfied with the results, the effect can be similarly difficult.


There are a number of reasons why a patient would want to pursue a male breast revision or second gynecomastia surgery in San Francisco. Some of the most common include the breast tissue now has a depression or deformity, or only liposuction was previously used. The most common reason being the patient still has the look of gynecomastia. Many patients feel that the tissue was not corrected enough during their first surgery, and they still have a female breast appearance. If you are unhappy with the results of your previous surgery, contact Dr. Delgado’s office with your questions or to schedule a consultation.




Any revision surgery is complicated, and gynecomastia revision surgery is no exception. Scar tissue left from the original surgery makes the procedure much more complex to navigate. For patients who just require a minor “touch-up,” liposuction alone or breast gland excision can be used. For those who require a more thorough change, excess skin or scar tissue will also need to be removed. The surgical techniques will vary depending on the scar tissues, issues with the last gynecomastia surgery, and your aesthetic goals.


Ideal candidates for gynecomastia surgery in Marin County should be in good overall health. They should have undergone gynecomastia surgery previously and are fully healed from the earlier procedure. It is vital for candidates also to have realistic expectations about the outcome of their male breast reduction procedure.

The Golden Gate Theater is one of the most historic, having been established in 1922 and hosting performers like Frank Sinatra, the Marx Brothers, Josephine Baker, and George Burns. In the 1960s it closed and was to be demolished before being rescued by a local effort. It reopened in 1979 and has since played many popular musicals.
