Gynecomastia in Adolescents - Patient 9
This is an 18 year old male from Suffolk County (Long Island), NY who had been enduring Gynecomastia, a condition that occurs due to the development of mammary tissue beneath the male breast resulting in an enlargement. The condition often occurs during puberty, affecting 30% to 60% of boys, and although the mild cases will often dissolve by age 17, in more severe or tubular cases, with not resolve themselves through maturity. The patient felt extremely self conscious about his chest and did not feel comfortable removing his shirt in public. He consulted with Dr. Mordcai Blau, board certified plastic surgeon with over 20 years experience, because he learned he is hailed world-wide as the utmost authority in Gynecomastia surgery and has even developed his own surgical method for correction the condition called the “Natural Blend Technique.” The patient received male breast reduction surgery, excising the head and tail of the mammary tissue along with a small amount of liposuction. The patient is very satisfied with the outcome and feels liberated to remove his shirt in public with confidence.
