The Confidence Files #7: Gynecomastia Prevents Bodybuilder from Taking First Place - Advanced Cosmetic Surgery of New York

Recently, we had a bodybuilder come in for a consultation. He truly looked like Arnold Schwarzenegger at the height of his career. Unfortunately for this patient, due to his mild case of gynecomastia, he was never able to achieve 1st place in competitions. He would always fall short in the judges’ eyes.

William’s Story

The Confidence Files #7: Gynecomastia Prevents Bodybuilder from Taking First Place - Advanced Cosmetic Surgery of New York

When Will and his wife came in to see me, I was struck by his humble and quiet disposition. He truly just wanted to solve a problem that he couldn’t resolve on his own through weight lifting and a regimented diet. Immediately, I could see that all I had to do was remove his small glandular bulge.

At Advanced Cosmetic Surgery of New York, we remove almost all the mammary gland except for a little part to support the nipple. We finish with laser liposuction to contour, lift, and tighten the chest. Most surgeons do not do this, but we believe it’s needed for the best results possible.

A few months after surgery, William and his wife returned to the practice smiling from ear-to-ear. When I asked them how the world of bodybuilding was going, William said, “It’s better than I could have ever imagined. Because of you, I have achieved my goal of placing 1st in competition. I couldn’t have done it without you, Dr. Levin.” Now, this made smile from ear-to-ear and truly made my day!

Bodybuilders and Gynecomastia

A bodybuilder’s body is their work. They spend many hours in the gym to achieve a near-perfect physique. While most of the results they attain are through hard work, there are some bodily changes that exercise and diet can’t remedy. Biology prevents it, and the only way to counteract what hormones have caused is through corrective surgery.

This is what William did, and it worked for him. You could have similar results, if you decide to reach out to our team of experienced plastic and cosmetic surgeons.
