Breast reduction for men (Gynecomastia) - Patient 177
This is a 27 year old male from Long Island, NY, who is 6'1 and 180 pounds. He consulted with Dr. Mordcai Blau, board certified plastic surgeon and a diplomate of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons for his Gynecomastia, or enlarged male breasts. This is a condition that results from the abnormal formation of mammary tissue underneath the male breast that causes a distended appearance to the breast. The patient did not feel comfortable with the appearance of his chest and felt he received negative attention when he removed his shirt in public. He sought the expertise of Dr. Blau upon learning that he is respected throughout the world as a leading authority in Gynecomastia surgery and that over 50% of his practice is dedicated to the correction of the condition. The patient received male breast reduction surgery, a procedure in which the mammary tissue is excised, along with a small amount of liposuction. The incision is small and discreet. The patient is extremely happy with the results and feels liberated to be able to remove his shirt in public without feeling self-conscious.
