Gynecomastia in Adolescents - Patient 36
This 16 year old teenager traveled from London, England to consult with Dr. Blau about his severe Gynecomastia, a condition where there is an over-development of glandular tissue beneath the male breast causing enlargement. His condition was interfering with his daily life to such an extent, due to teasing from his peers, that he began to skip school rather than face the embarrassment of being harassed any further. His parents took him to his pediatrician for consultation and the decision was made that the best route was male breast reduction surgery. The improvement of the boy's physical appearance would also help him to regain his self-esteem. The teenager and his parents were impressed with Dr. Blau's level of expertise, discovering that not only was he a world-authority on the subject of Gynecomastia, having developed his own method of correcting Gynecomastia called the "Natural Blend Technique" but also that he has successfully treated many other teenagers with the condition. Male breast reduction surgery was performed, excising the glandular tissue followed by liposuction. The teenager was thrilled with the results and that he could return home to London, England, and no longer be self-conscious about his appearance. He felt the long trip to the United States to seek the expertise of Dr. Blau was well-worth the trip.
