A photograph recently surfaced of Rocker Steven Tyler’s chest. I am writing this blog, not to poke fun at the Aerosmith frontman’s chest, but as an opportunity to discuss a very common problem among men. Gynecomastia, or male chest enlargement, is a complaint of men of all ages. It can develop anywhere from puberty to the 80’s. It can range from only mild chest enlargement or severe chest enlargement resembling female breasts. I have seen countless patients who report that they have not taken their shirt off in public for years, because of embarrassment. Imagine being a teenage boy and being so embarrassed that you will not go to the beach or the pool, or even change in the locker room. Surgical correction is possible and is life-changing!
Many of our patients travel a great distance to have surgery with Dr. Schulman, so we understand that it may not be possible for you to come to our office for your initial consultation.
