Gynecomastia in Bodybuilders - Patient 10
Before and post-op photos of a 26 year old male from Newark, NJ. Despite the fact that he is an athlete and was in excellent physical condition, he developed a condition called Gynecomastia, which occurs due to a formation of mammary tissue on top of the muscles in the chest. Because of this tissue build up, the breasts protrude out and become enlarged. In this patient's case, the Gynecomastia formed to a more severe degree on one side causing his chest to be asymmetrical. The patient became frustrated with the appearance of his chest as he was such a conditioned athlete and his physique is important to him. Upon doing research and recommendations from peers he consulted with Dr. Mordcai Blau, board certified plastic surgeon with over 20 years experience. He was impressed to learn that Dr. Blau is world-renowned for his experience and knowledge in Gynecomastia surgery and that he specializes in bodybuilders. Male breast reduction surgery was performed, a procedure in which the mammary tissue was excised. Because a bodybuilder possesses such low body fat, liposuction was not needed. The patient is elated with the results and has a new confidence as an athlete.
