Gynecomastia Solutions

Gynecomastia is a surprisingly common condition and affects almost 70% of men at some point in their lives. For sufferers, surgery is the only permanent treatment. However, a company based in Scotland are using their experiences to provide an alternative for those with mild to moderate gynecomastia by offering high-quality compression garments.

Liam from Gynecomastia Solutions explained to Surgery Group the driving force behind launching the company.

“Through my own struggles with gynecomastia, I discovered that finding a comfortable vest or undershirt which offered enough compression to smooth my chest but not too much to restrict my breathing was a difficult task. Furthermore, finding a vest which didn’t leave you sweaty and clammy at the end of the day was near impossible. Companies based in the USA had options for this but also came with an extortionate postage cost.“

The effects a well-fitting, high-quality compression vest can have on the confidence of an individual who has confidence issues caused by their gynecomastia cannot be overstated. It gives the wearer the ability to wear the types of t-shirts and shirts they would have usually avoided, to play sports and to live their life without glancing at their chest every minute. Gynecomastia sufferers often have the unfortunate habit of hunching their back to avoid sticking out their chest even further, compression garments give them the confidence to straighten their back and correct their posture.

With this in mind, Liam brought together a small range of vests and undershirts which meet the three main requirements for gynecomastia sufferers.

Discreetness

Too many gynecomastia vests/shirts are visible underneath a standard t-shirt. The vests / shirts are designed with a deep back and front neckline and thin straps to ensure the garment remains hidden, and if seen, looks like a normal underlayer. The undershirt specifically has short enough sleeves to remain.

Light Material

Made from 80% Nylon and 20% Spandex, the vests ensure sweat wicks away from the skin whilst providing an ample level of compression.

Compression

As mentioned previously, a vest or undershirt must provide enough compression to flatten the chest without being uncomfortable. The level of compression provided from one of the garments is suitable for grade 1 to grade 3 gynecomastia.

Gynecomastia Solutions product range includes chest compression vests and short sleeved undershirts available in white & black. They also offer fast, free postage to anywhere within the United Kingdom as well as international shipping.

Working with COVID-protected facilities

Working Safely

  • Routinely asking patients for relevant COVID-19 history of their own health and people they are in contact with. It is important that patients provide accurate information.
  • Following social distancing guidelines by limiting the contact of patients with one another whether in consultation or in a procedure and will arrange waiting room seating accordingly.
  • Using suitable equipment/PPE (Personal Protective Equipment) as recommended by the Centre for Disease Control (CDC) or another equivalent governmental agency.
  • Routinely using relevant health histories and daily temperature monitoring of all clinic staff and patients as part of their strategy to prevent contagion. Additionally, and where available, follows all government guidelines on use of testing to monitor staff.
  • In addition to using proper PPE, each clinic uses appropriate cleansing, disinfecting and sterilization procedures throughout the office/clinic. Also, uses proper waste disposal methods for any materials that could be contaminated.
  • Advising patients of handwashing protocols in the office/clinic and how to change gloves, gown and masks.
  • Assuring the public that the staff have received additional training with regards to proper COVID-19 infection control methods
  • And perhaps most importantly, the surgeon you have chosen is the one performing the surgical steps of your procedure, rather than delegating it to unlicensed technicians.

 

Clinic Advice

Regarding COVID19, we are working with selected COVID-protected facilities who have now reopened. These clinics have started a phased return model for a new normal with various safety measures in place including a limited number of procedures, reduced footfall through the clinic and enhanced PPE for staff. On the day, you will be asked to complete a COVID questionnaire and have your temperature taken on entry, as well as being asked to wash your hands. You will be asked to wear a face mask so that theoretically you are protected and you protect staff members in case anyone happens to be positive whilst asymptomatic.

Surgery Group have adopted guidelines from the International Society of Hair Restoration Surgery for use in all clinics taking into account UK law and each clinic has completed a COVID19 risk assessment of the patient journey through the clinic and taken steps to minimise risk, and we hope that by doing so, the risk of contracting coronavirus is significantly less than your weekly supermarket shop, however, it is not possible to guarantee that the risk of catching it is zero, such as in the nature of the virus.

To be clear, the government’s advice for the time being remains to stay at home unless you need to leave the house for one of 4 reasons including “any medical need” –

Corona Virus Government Advice

Without specific national guidance on hair transplant clinics, we deem it safe to offer the service in a limited capacity with the measures we have taken, but it is up to you to decide if leaving the house to attend a hair transplant clinic constitutes a “medical need”.
