Gynecomastia in Bodybuilders - Patient 37
Before and post op photos of a 40 year old patient from Suffolk County, Long Island, NY who had been aggressively training as a bodybuilder for many years. Despite his excellent physique he was suffering from a condition called Gynecomastia in which there is a development of glandular tissue on top of the muscles of the chest causing the breasts to become enlarged. The patient felt that the appearance of his chest was a hindrance to his career, which brought him to Dr. Mordcai Blau, board certified plastic surgeon and a diplomate of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons. The patient was not only impressed after viewing the success the before and after photos of other bodybuilders on Dr. Blau's website but he was also happy to learn that over 50% of his practice is dedicated to the correction of the Gynecomastia condition and that he specializes in bodybuilders. Surgery included the excision of the glandular tissue. Because bodybuilders are unique in that they have such a low percentage of body fat, liposuction was not required. As can be seen in the post op photos, scarring is minimal. The patient is extremely pleased with the outcome.
