Gynecomastia in Adolescents - Patient 16
This is an 18 year old male from Queens, NY, who had been suffering from Adolescent Gynecomastia. This patient had hereditary Gynecomastia that began in his adolescence, and while in typical cases that occur among teenage boys the condition will correct itself with age, in a severe or tubular case, as in this young man's situation, it does not resolve itself. The patient was very self-conscious with the appearance of his chest and felt embarrassed around his peers. He sought the expertise of Dr. Blau upon learning he is renowned throughout the world as a leading authority in Gynecomastia surgery and is even a well-accomplished author on the subject. After a consultation with Dr. Blau, the patient decided upon male breast reduction surgery to correct the Gynecomastia. Surgery was performed in which the head and tail of the mammary tissue beneath the breasts followed by a small amount of liposculpture. The incision is only an inch in diameter, and as can be seen in the Post-Op photos, it is not noticeable. The patient is extremely happy with the outcome of the procedure and feels a new self-confidence.
