Gynecomastia in Adolescents - Patient 20
This 16 year old patient from Miami, FL, who was 5'2 and 160 pounds, suffered from a severe case of Puffy Nipples, a Gynecomastia condition in which there is an abnormal formation of glandular tissue beneath the male breast that causes the nipples to protrude further than normal. The condition became worse, rather than improving with age. The teen began to withdrawal and refused to try to date for fear of being ridiculed. Because his parents became concerned about his behavior and were worried about his psychological well-being they consulted with Dr. Mordcai Blau, board certified plastic surgeon with over 20 years experience. They trusted Dr. Blau's expertise not only because he is a world-authority on the subject of Gynecomastia but also because of the many successful treatments he has performed on other adolescents with severe cases such as their son. At the recommendation of Dr. Blau the young man received male breast reduction surgery excising the glandular tissue followed by liposuction. Only 6 months following the procedure the incision is not noticeable. This Miami, FL teen was very pleased with the results, and according to his parents, he is self-confident with his appearance and has begun dating.
