Gynecomastia in Bodybuilders - Patient 13
This is a 23 year old bodybuilder from New York City, NY, who is 6'0 and weighs 190 lbs. Because he had been aggressively training since his adolescence he developed Gynecomastia, a condition that occurs due to a buildup of excess tissue on top of the muscles in the chest. This causes the chest to become enlarged. During competition, points will often be deducted for an enlarged chest and the patient felt the condition was hindering his career. He sought the expertise of Dr. Mordcai Blau, board certified plastic surgeon with over 20 years experience. He was impressed to learn that Dr. Blau is considered the utmost authority in Gynecomastia surgery across the world and is even a well-accomplished author on the subject. The surgical procedure involved the excision 95% of the glandular tissue. Liposuction was not performed due to the low body fat of the young man. The patient was extremely happy with the results.
