Gynecomastia in Adolescents - Patient 24
This 16 year old teen traveled with his parents from Boston, MA to consult with Dr. Blau about his severe Gynecomastia. From the young age of 10, the young man's breast became abnormally large. Mild cases of Gynecomastia are not uncommon in adolescent boys and often the condition corrects itself with age, but in this teen's case, the condition became worse, especially within the last couple of years. The severity of his condition began to cause him embarrassment among his peers and he was especially distressed to find that girls and boys alike began to tease him. He began to withdraw from activities that would cause him to remove his shirt, such as going to the beach or playing school sports. He and his parents came to Dr. Blau's facility because they had learned that he is a world-authority on the subject of Gynecomastia and they were very impressed with the success of the before and after photos offered on his website. Gynecomastia (male breast reduction) surgery was performed, removing excess glandular tissue from beneath the breast along with a small amount of liposculpture. The patient and his parents returned to Boston, MA, very happy with the success of the surgery and his parents have reported that their son has gained a whole new self-confidence. He has even began to improve his physical health by joining the sports activities that he had previously avoided.
