Dave is a personal trainer who used steroids for a few years without a noticeable change in the shape of his chest. When he lost weight, he noticed “man boobs” and began looking for a doctor to surgically correct this condition.

The following video documentary chronicles Dave’s journey.  Watch his initial consultation and pre-operation exam with San Mateo County gynecomastia expert Dr. Delgado. If you are interested, parts 3 and 4 sow the actual procedure, which may be too graphic for some patients. Lastly, Dave and Dr. Delgado meet one week and 5 months post-operation.  

In the last part, Dave answers some of the questions patients often ask. He feels more comfortable with his upper torso following surgery and comments that no one suspects he had a procedure done as his chest looks masculine and natural.

Part 2: PRE-OP EXAM
