As a 33 year-old male, it can be embarrassing to have a problem with enlarged breasts. This was my 2nd Gynecomastia surgery. The first was at age 30, and it was performed by a different doctor.
After the first surgery, I was pleased with the results, however, the issue returned and I didn't totally feel at home with the doctor. The doctor that had performed surgery #1 was a nice guy, but I didn't always feel comfortable with his bedside manner and his responses to my questions. When the gynecomastia issue returned 2-3 years later (to the point where I was no longer comfortable going out unless I had a compression tee on), I knew I needed to address the situation.
I was hesitant at first, because I didn't want to use the same doctor as before, so I decided to do a fair share of research. I came across Dr. Doherty's name. After carefully looking at his reviews, I decided to make an appointment to see him. No B/S, he made me feel 100% comfortable about my concerns in the first 5 minutes of meeting him. He noticed right away that there was a good amount of breast tissue in both of my pecs, and together we decided that surgery was the best option for the results I was looking for. I just wanted to have a normal looking chest again and be able to wear a tank top or a tight tee, and not have to worry that everyone under the sun was staring at my chest.
Prior to surgery, we met to discuss the operation. Dr. Doherty couldn't have been any kinder. We exchanged emails & phone calls, and he was very quick to respond to any of my questions or concerns.
On surgery day, the Doctor assured me that everything would be fine, and of course, it was. He kept in constant contact with me post-surgery to ensure I was healing okay, and we met every few weeks as well. It's been about 3 and 1/2 months since surgery and I feel amazing. I have no stress or anxiety about having my shirt off anymore. I've finally been able to get back to the gym and haven't had any issue from the procedure. The normal bruising and soreness didn't last very long. I had to wear a compression vest for a few weeks, but it was easy to get used to.
If you're a guy and have similar concerns as I did, I highly recommend looking into this procedure. It costs nothing to make a consultation appointment, and I guarantee you won't regret it.
