The Best Season for Gynecomastia Surgery

Before and After Gynecomastia Surgery




There are many things to consider when scheduling gynecomastia surgery such as; taking time off work, arranging transportation after surgery, having a caregiver for a minimum of 24 hours, getting labs tests, prescriptions filled, etc. but another important decision is when to have surgery.

If you have flexibility, the best season is winter time. Wearing layers of clothing is not unusual or uncomfortable in winter; however, wearing a compression vest plus thicker shirts in the summer will be quite warm.

After surgery, you will be wearing a compression vest for 6 weeks. Dr. Miguel Delgado, M.D. has designed custom vests for his patients that are more comfortable and functional than other vests. For 2 or 3 days you will have drains that sit securely in special pockets instead of being held in place with safety pins. It is easier to hide the vest with drains under heavier clothing, but once the drains are removed, Dr. Delgado lightweight vests are well hidden under clothing.

Summer is a time when people enjoy the outdoors with such events as; pool parties, barbecues, and a day at the beach, etc. Men like to wear T-shirts, tank tops, or even go shirtless while soaking up the sunshine. Planning surgery in the winter months allows enough recovery time for men to participate in all of their favorite outdoor activities.

Dr. Delgado stresses to his patients that they need to take care of their new scars while they are still pink in color. Be sure to use a good sunblock of 30 SPF or more, and keep the young scars covered for at least 6 months and possibly up to one year to prevent hyperpigmentation, where they can turn permanently dark brown.

If your exercise program includes outdoor activities such as riding bicycles, jogging, playing basketball or volleyball, giving up a few weeks for recovery in winter may be preferable than the sunny days of summer.

Whenever having male breast reduction surgery is convenient for you, Dr. Delgado is ready to help you on your journey. Call now for a consultation! (415) 898-4161.

Risperdal Lawsuits Escalate in 2017!






Risperdal an anti-psychotic drug was approved by the FDA in 1993 for treatment of schizophrenia, bipolar mania, and autism. However, one of the serious side effects of the drug is gynecomastia or the development of female type breasts in men and boys.

Risperdal Sales Have Exceeded $30 Billion

Thousands of lawsuits have been filed against Johnson and Johnson because they hid the fact that gynecomastia could result from the drug. In addition, Johnson and Johnson has been accused of practicing illegal marketing ploys such as paying kickbacks to physicians for prescribing Risperdal. To date, the sales of Risperdal have exceeded $30 billion worldwide.

More than 3,000 new Risperdal lawsuits have been filed in the first quarter of 2017, bringing the total to approximately 20,000 for the U.S. and Canada.

A Claimant Was Awarded $77 Million!

Last year a Risperdal claimant received a record-setting verdict award of $70million with an additional $7 million added by the judge for delay damages. The tolling agreement on thousands of cases was canceled by Johnson and Johnson, which pauses the statute of limitations deadline. With no expiration date for filing a lawsuit, the courts will be overburdened. Either side retains the right to cancel the agreement.

Of the 8 cases that have gone to trial in Philadelphia, 4 verdicts went in favor of the plaintiffs and 4 in favor of Johnson and Johnson, but appeals are still pending in the state’s Superior Court.

With large awards being handed down, TV ads are prolific in search of more claimants. In 2016 there were over 3,800 TV.

36 states have now filed lawsuits against Janssen, a subsidiary of Johnson and Johnson and the manufacturer of Risperdal.

To date, the drug is still being prescribed by doctors.

If you are having any issues with gynecomastia, call now (415) 898-4161 for a consultation with Dr. Miguel Delgado, M.D.

Gynecomastia May be Linked to Parabens





Parabens are man-made products that have been used since the 1950’s as a preservative to prevent harmful mold and bacterial growth. Parabens are found in many cosmetics, lotions, hair products, makeup, shaving cream, and can be absorbed through the skin. In addition, parabens enter the body through ingested pharmaceuticals, and many food products and beverages.

Parabens are Listed in Ingredient Labels

The common parabens are, Ethylparaben, Methylparaben, Propylparaben, and Butylparaben. Many times a product may contain more than one paraben. When reading ingredient labels, look for words ending in paraben!

Parabens are considered xenoestrogens which mimic estrogen. There is concern that the cumulative effect may cause health concerns. However, according to the Center for Disease Control (CDC), the effects of low levels of parabens for the human body are unknown.

High Estrogen Levels in Men May Cause Breasts

Men who have a disproportionate level of estrogen in their body may have a higher propensity for developing female type breasts or gynecomastia.



This 18-year-old gynecomastia patient had significant gynecomastia. He underwent breast gland excision and liposuction. He also had a crescent areola lift for superior advancement of the areola tissue.

It has been noted that men with high concentrations of parabens have lower muscle mass, more body fat, and may have developed female type breasts. Research done in Japan has shown some men having damaged reproductive systems, lower sperm count, and lower levels of testosterone.

Parabens Outlawed in Europe

In 2006, Europe banned the use of parabens in food, but it is still allowed in the United States. Dr. Miguel Delgado, M.D. recommends that his gynecomastia patients read labels and avoid food and products that may be conducive to increasing estrogen levels.
