Gynecomastia in Bodybuilders - Patient 34
Before and after photos of a 25 year old Long Island, NY male who had been bodybuilding for several years. He developed Gynecomastia, a condition in which there is a formation of mammary tissue on top of the muscles of the chest, causing the breasts to become enlarged. As the patient's physique is very important to him, he felt uncomfortable with the appearance of his chest and felt that the condition was hindering his career. He decided to consult with Dr. Mordcai Blau upon learning that he is the leading authority world-wide in Gynecomastia surgery and even a well-accomplished author on the subject. The patient was also impressed to learn that Dr. Blau is an award-winning painter and sculptor. Male breast reduction surgery was performed, a procedure in which 95% of the mammary tissue was removed. Liposuction was not necessary because the patient possessed such a small amount of body fat. The incision is small in size and as can be seen in the post-op photos, the scarring is minimal. The patient is very satisfied in the outcome and happy to return to his training without the interference of his condition.
