Severe Cases of Gynecomastia - Patient 23
Before and after photos of a 15 year old teen who had been enduring a severe form of Gynecomastia, a condition that results in the enlargement of the male breasts due to the development of mammary tissue beneath the breast. The condition commonly occurs in adolescence between the ages of 8 and 12 and although it typically will resolve itself with age, the more severe cases can be endured for life. The young man felt embarrassed to remove his shirt during school activities that required him to do so for fear of negative attention and harassment from his peers. He confided in a teacher about the issues he was experiencing, and the teacher sat down with his parents and explained the situation to them. They decided to take him to Dr. Mordcai Blau for a consultation. They were not only impressed to learn that Dr. Blau is world renowned for his experience and knowledge in Gynecomastia surgery, but they also felt comfortable with his abilities after learning that Dr. Blau has successfully helped many other teen patients experiencing the same condition. The patient received male breast reduction surgery in which the mammary tissue was excised followed by liposuction. Although scarring is still evident in the post-op photos, it will fade over time. The young man is very happy with the results and is enjoying a new self-confidence.
