Evaluating Gynecomastia


Gynecomastia is no longer the mystery it used to be. With the advent of the World Wide Web, information on virtually any topic is now immediately available. Sometimes too much knowledge can be confusing, and you may find yourself in a situation where you are trying to diagnosis yourself.

In particular, these days, there are volumes of information available on male breasts, technically known as gynecomastia. There are many specific websites now with a lot of good information, such as http://www.gynecomastia.org and some plastic surgeons that specialize in this procedure have excellent information on their websites. Dr. Delgado has a website dedicated specifically to gynecomastia (male breast reduction).

Recently, in some chat rooms, the question of seeing an endocrinologist first or a plastic surgeon has come up. It is very important to select a plastic surgeon that specializes in gynecomastia, when selecting your surgeon, be sure to ask how many cases he/she averages a year. The surgeons who specialize in this procedure will know how to evaluate your particular case and determine if further testing and consultation is recommended.  With Dr. Delgado you will find at your initial consultation he will be spending a great deal of time taking your medical history and will do a physical exam. Consultation w clipboardPrior to surgery you will be required to have a blood test that will help determine if you are a good candidate for surgery. In very few cases this test comes back out of range. Dr. Delgado usually has this test repeated to be sure of the results. If the results are still out of range, then a referral to an endocrinologist is in order.  After evaluation by both doctors it will be determined if you are able to proceed with surgery.
