Do you recommend anyone in Dallas?
The University of Texas Southwestern would be a good place to start. Contact the department of plastic surgery and talk to the secretary about the plastic surgeon with the most experience in male breast reduction. The plastic surgeon must be board certified and have experience in male breast reduction.
