US plastic surgeon produces video showing gynecomastia patient journey

A California-based plastic surgeon has released a six-part video revealing the journey men go on when they undergo gynecomastia surgery. Dr Miguel Delgado has been specialising in the procedure – also known as male breast reduction surgery – since 1989 and wanted to give males a better idea of what the procedure entails.Therefore, one of his patients agreed to be filmed throughout the duration of his treatment, from the initial consultation to the end result. The video tape has been split into six sections, with the third part showing the surgery itself. Dr Delgado first uses liposuction, before removing the breast tissue a little at a time to achieve a natural shape. After the operation, the remaining videos show the patient’s recovery while he is wearing a special protective vest, as well as revealing his opinions on the surgery six months later. According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, gynecomastia surgery was one of the top five surgical procedures in 2011, with its popularity increasing by eight per cent compared with 2010.
