“While women frequently speak with their friends about their aesthetic concerns, men are too embarrassed to speak with one another about gynecomastia (male breast enlargement.)”
“Men suffered in humiliation and embarrassment. And they didn’t know that there was anything to do about it, until the internet,” Teitelbaum explains. “Now men can anonymously research their condition and see that it is not just common, but that there is a solution to it.”
While there are multiple websites that discuss gynecomastia, Dr. Teitelbaum saw that much information was lacking. “Photographs were not taken with standardized techniques, shown at regular intervals after surgery, or at the same angle. You often couldn’t tell what you were looking at.” So when Dr. Teitelbaum set up beverlyhillsgynecomastia.com, he was careful to include only photographs which were objectively taken and clearly demonstrate results. “And patients want to see more than just great results. I’ve included close-ups of scars, black and blue during healing, and even pictures of the tissue itself.”
The site includes all information from A to Z pertinent to a man seeking treatment for gynecomastia. It is becoming an increasingly popular site, and Dr. Teitelbaum frequently receives accolades from patients with gynecomastia about how much the site has helped them to better understand their situation and what can be done about it.
