Male Breast Reduction (Gynecomastia) Before and After Photos
Dr. Eugene Kim is a board certified plastic surgeon providing male breast reduction treatment to patients in Beverly Hills, Los Angeles, Santa Monica, West Hollywood, CA, and surrounding communities. One of his key goals during the initial consultation for a procedure such as gynecomastia is to educate the patients about all aspects of the treatment, and help them make informed choices.
What are Gynecomastia Before and After Photos?
Before and after photos in the case of gynecomastia refer to a set of pictures belonging to a previous male patient who has undergone the same breast reduction surgery successfully. The set includes pictures taken prior to the surgery and after the surgery. The pictures can be used as an effective visual aid by the plastic surgeon to explain the kind of difference the treatment can make to the patient’s appearance. The pictures are taken in a discreet manner with the consent of the patient. The goal of these pictures is purely to educate new patients about what the procedure may or may not do for them.\
Need for Before and After Pictures
In a condition such as gynecomastia, one of the challenges is that many male patients are embarrassed to discuss the problem, and have very little awareness about it. With the help of before and after pictures, the cosmetic surgeon is in a fantastic and venerable position to generate the patient’s confidence in the procedure. Patients who are unsure whether the surgery will work for them in a positive light and manner, their doubts can be dispelled with the help of these pictures.
In some cases, the patient may need a combination of more than one procedure. The techniques of gynecomastia may also differ, and each patient may need a different treatment approach. With before and after pictures, the surgeon can help a patient make informed choices regarding the technique and the right combination of procedures.
It is important in any plastic surgery procedure that the patient should have clear aesthetic goals, a positive outlook and realistic expectations. However, sometimes despite the best efforts of a plastic surgeon to explain the potential effectiveness of the procedure, the patient may form misconceived notions or false expectations.
This can lead to disappointment later on at the time of the final outcome, even if the gynecomastia procedure has actually been performed very successfully. Such undesirable situations can be avoided if the surgeon makes an appropriate use of gynecomastia before and after pictures. This will leave no scope for any confusion, and the patient will be able to form realistic expectations about the results.
Digital Photos Online

Patients can review the pictures in the privacy of their home or office before they decide to visit the surgeon for a consultation.
