ABOUT DR. Miguel A. DELGADO
Miguel Delgado, MD is a Board Certified Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeon, specializing in cosmetic surgery. Over a number of years, he has focused particular attention on the treatment of gynecomastia or male breast enlargement. He has developed unique techniques to achieve optimal results, including minimal incisions limited to the edge of the areola.
Based on his experience with treating hundreds of men, Dr. Delgado has produced a number of videos on the subject of male breast enlargement, also commonly referred to as "man boobs" or “moobs”. His work has been featured with the British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC), Discovery Channel, and multiple other film organizations.
Dr. Delgado's interest in male breast reduction began in 1988 when he assisted Merle Yost, LMFT in the creation of Mr. Yost’s website, www.gynecomastia.org. That experience eventually led Dr. Delgado to establish the Gynecomastia Center of Excellence at his private surgery facility located in Marin County, California. His offices, located in downtown San Francisco and also north of the Golden Gate Bridge in Marin County, have drawn gynecomastia patients from across the United States and around the world who were seeking a solution to this problem .
Dr. Delgado has developed minimally invasive techniques combining liposuction and surgical excision to perform successful removal of the glandular tissue found in gynecomastia patients. He uses an endoscope for some cases and a nasal lighted retractor for others. The technique can vary from patient to patient, but the goal is always to achieve the desired conformation of a flat chest with the smallest possible incision.
A great testament to Dr. Delgado's skill and success with gynecomastia cases is that 30-35% of his cases are redo or revision surgeries from other practices. Due to his reputation, patients come to Dr. Delgado expecting a very high standard of care and they are not disappointed.
Dr. Delgado’s "Gynecomastia Center of Excellence" is a division of the Marin Cosmetic Surgery Center. Over the past ten years, Dr. Delgado has assembled a seasoned staff of medical professionals, some of whom have worked with him since the inception of the surgery center. One of those is board-certified anesthesiologist Dr. Randy Gaynor. Dr. Gaynor routinely works closely with Dr. Delgado on every case to assure that each patient has the safest and most comfortable experience possible.
All men with enlarged breasts are candidates but the more extreme cases of gynecomastia will require more extensive surgery and possibly skin excision. It is important for the patient to be healthy and emotionally stable. A consultation with Dr. Delgado will help determine if the patient is a good candidate and what may be the potential result.
