Severe Cases of Gynecomastia - Patient 16
This is a 24 year old male from Queens, New York City, NY who had been suffering from a severe form of Gynecomastia, a condition in which the breasts become enlarged due to the development of mammary tissue beneath the male breast. The condition began in his adolescence which is common for boys between the ages of 8 and 12, although the condition often corrects itself if it is mild. In more severe or tubular cases, such as this patient's case, the condition will not reduce with maturity. He felt very self-conscious about the appearance of his chest, which was a “C” cup in comparison to a woman, and did not like removing his shirt in public. He decided to consult with Dr. Mordcai Blau, board certified plastic surgeon with over 20 years experience. Dr. Blau is renowned throughout the world as the leading authority in Gynecomastia surgery and over 50% of his practice is dedicated to the correction of the condition. The patient received male breast reduction surgery which included the excision of the mammary tissue followed by liposuction. Any excess skin will typically shrink once the tissue is removed. The patient is thrilled by the results and no longer feel self-conscious about the appearance of his chest.
