Severe Cases of Gynecomastia - Patient 33
This is a 14 year old patient from Brooklyn, NY who had developed Gynecomastia, a condition in which the male breasts become enlarged resulting from the formation of mammary tissue beneath the breasts. The condition is common among adolescent boys, affecting 65% between the ages of 8 and 12, however, in mild cases the condition will resolve itself after a few years. In more severe or tubular cases, such as with this young man, the condition will be endured throughout life unless it is corrected through surgery. The young man was very self-conscious about the appearance of his chest and began to withdrawal socially. His parents decided to consult with Dr. Mordcai Blau, board certified plastic surgeon with over 20 years experience. Not only were they impressed to learn that Dr. Blau is the world's utmost expert in Gynecomastia surgery, but they were also impressed by the numerous teen patients with the same condition that Dr. Blau had successfully corrected. Surgery included the excision of the mammary tissue followed by liposuction. As can be seen in the post-op photos, there is a vast improvement in the contours of the patient's chest. He is extremely happy with the results and is enjoying a new self-confidence.
