My Personal Story…
I was always the “fat kid” growing up, being constantly bullied and teased because of my weight. I tried every diet known, all which resulted in regaining the weight (often more than before). As I grew older, health problems started to become apparent because of my obesity. With the passing of my close college friend due to heart problems I came to the hard realization that I had to make a change for the sake of my wife and children. I went back to medical school and concentrated heavily on nutrition and exercise physiology, eventually discovering the critical importance of hormonal, peptide, and vitamin optimization.
I chose to change my lifestyle and become healthier, eventually losing over 60 pounds with less than 15% body fat. I felt great but no matter how hard I worked out or how strict I was with my nutrition, I was never able to get rid of my man-boobs (gynecomastia) and love handles. I even cut my calories as low as health would allow and sometimes I trained up to 2 hours a day, but despite this, my chest and love handles persisted.
My insecurity about my physical appearance prevented me from showing all that I had accomplished in losing over 60 pounds. I was hesitant to participate in any activities that would require me to remove my shirt. I even continued to wear my old shirts because they hid my chest and love handles even though it looked like I was wearing a tent. One would think my self esteem and self confidence would have skyrocketed with what I accomplished but it fact, it was quite the opposite since my man-boobs and love handles were even more prominent now that I lost weight everywhere else. My self confidence plummeted.
I decided to take control and asked my close friend and former co-resident in surgical training, Dr. Anh-Tuan Truong to help. Dr. Truong’s area of expertise is body sculpting and cosmetic surgery. I underwent gynecomastia correction surgery and removal of love handles shortly thereafter with Dr. Truong. My surgery was nothing short of amazing and the final result was truly incredible.
I couldn’t believe how much a cosmetic procedure could boost my self confidence. For me (and for many of you), the decision to proceed with surgery wasn’t a matter of me wanting to look beautiful or fabulous, but me wanting to feel normal.
Because of my personal journey with health and self confidence issues, I decided that I wanted to help others and focus on health and hormone optimization combined with cosmetic surgery for men. I was certain that there were many men out there who could benefit from my expertise, training, and personal experience.
