Reveert's public relations personnel, Lori Payne, answered all my questions and concerns, arrange all my appointments as well as follow up very quickly to accommodate my schedule. Dr. Alejandro was very professional, extremely knowledgable and very personable. My results for the arm lift perfectly matched my vision. I received stellar service throughout the entire process, including hospital staff, and the entire process took minimal amount of time. I strongly recommend Reveert, Dr. Alejandro and the location of my hospital stay to anyone considering surgery

Superb! Dr. Alejandro, Lori the coordinator, nurses and the entire staff were outstanding. They answered all questions professionally, clearly, patiently and promptly about the surgery and post-op expectations. They offered the latest approved surgical techniques. The follow-up care was excellent. Dr. Alejandro's credentials are sterling. The hospital is state-of-the art in Zapópan near Guadalajara. It can hold its own with the finest in any country. It is also aesthetically pleasing. Patient care is superb. I researched carefully, as you should, where to have my plastic surgery performed. REEVERT was an excellent choice all round. Do not fear coming to REVEERT in Guadalajara in any way. The city and the colonial gem, Tlaquepaque, nearby are safe, beautiful, filled with cultural activities and fine cuisine. The Mexican people are universally kind and cordial. I recommend that you stay fairly near to the hospital in any number of delightful places in Mexico should there be any minor glitches. Combining your healing process with a pleasant vacation will take your mind off things. Lori is a goldmine of information on what you might enjoy. Am I glad I chose REEVERT to get rid of my "turkey wattle?" Absolutely. The results look terrific.

San Javier Hospital - Reveert Verified

Husband and wife physician team, trained extensively in reconstructive and plastic surgery in New York at the Manhattan ENT Hospital as well as Duke University has provided them with exposure to North American patients which is now an important factor in their daily work.

Dr. Piccard-Ami gave me thorough information, as well as complete follow-up care. I, being a gastric-bypass patient, prior to coming to see him, as well as botched procedures prior, was relieved by my results following reconstructive breast augmentation and a tummy tuck to remove scarring from previous intestinal exploratory surgery and twice botched breast augmentation. I was relieved to find a competent and professional who has honed his craft. Dr. Piccard-Ami's work was cut out for him, as I was a difficult case, he confidently and skillfully restored my self confidence. My gratitude thus far is immesurable. You're the best doc, thank you so much! When, I have more money.... my thighs are next!!!

Male Breast Reduction (Gynecomastia) Overview

Gynecomastia is a common condition where men develop breasts. In some cases, one breast develops more than the other resulting in asymmetry.

 

Typically, these men progress with small breasts, but these men can also grow very large breasts. It is a very embarrassing condition and can only be treated with male breast reduction.

 

Men with gynecomastia feel ashamed about the appearance of their chest because it is not considered “normal” for men to have breasts. They can experience medical issues such as pain, however most of their issues are emotional (decreased self-esteem, depression, loss of confidence).

 

The causes of male breast development are still being studied. Scientists believe that it is mostly a result of a hormonal imbalance. Men with gynecomastia have high levels of the female sex hormone estrogen and low levels of the male sex hormone testosterone.

 

Teenage boys can develop gynecomastia because their hormones are fluctuating while older men can develop it because testosterone slowly fades away.

 

There are, however, a number of other reasons men develop breasts. Some men have a genetic predisposition to the condition while others acquire it as a result of drug use: anti-depressants, blood pressure medicines, marijuana, and steroids.

 

Another related condition called pseudogynecomastia defines the development of male breasts because of excess weight. Typically, this development is mostly made up of fat and can be treated with a healthy diet and exercise. They can also undergo the liposuction-only breast reduction technique.

 

Male breast reduction can involve surgery, a combination of surgery and liposuction or just liposuction, which can add up to an expensive overall cost for male breast reduction. This is in addition to the hospital admission fees, anesthetic and the surgeon's charges.

 

Cyprus is among the most cost-effective destinations for plastic surgery. The natural beauty of Cyprus is enticing medical tourists. The cost of male breast reduction in Cyprus makes the island an inviting destination for many men from Europe and the US.

 

To undergo a breast reduction, men need to be emotionally secure and physically healthy.

 

Depending on how severe the gynecomastia is, your insurance company may cover some or all of the cost of your breast reduction.

 

A Good Candidate for Male Breast Reduction (Gynecomastia)

Men who have gynecomastia and have tried to reduce the excess fat with diet and exercise are good candidates for male breast reduction surgery.

 

Preparing for Male Breast Reduction (Gynecomastia)

To prepare for male breast reduction you should consider the following:

· Avoid medicines containing aspirin or ibuprofen a few weeks prior to surgery.

· Eat a balanced nutrient-rich diet before and after surgery. A healthy diet will help speed your male breast reduction recovery.

· Do not eat or drink after midnight the night before surgery, unless instructed otherwise by your doctor.

· Do not wear make-up, contact lenses or other accessories to your surgery.

· Arrange to have someone take you home after surgery. If possible have them stay with you that evening around the house for a few days while you recover.
