Severe Cases of Gynecomastia - Patient 59
This is an 18 year old male, who is 6'2 and 160 pounds, from Brooklyn, New York (NY) who had been suffering from severe Gynecomastia since early puberty. This is a condition in which the male breasts become enlarged as the result of the formation of mammary tissue underneath the breasts. The condition can affect up to 65% of adolescent boys between the ages of 12 and 18, and although milder cases will disappear with age, the more severe cases will be endured throughout life without surgical correction. The young man was often teased by his peers and was extremely self-conscious about the appearance of his chest. He decided to consult with Dr. Mordcai Blau, board certified plastic surgeon and a diplomate of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons. Dr. Blau is known world-wide as the top authority in Gynecomastia surgery and is also a well-accomplished author on the subject. The patient received Male Breast Reduction Surgery, excising the mammary tissue as well as liposuction. The young man was overjoyed with the outcome and no longer feels embarrassed to remove his shirt in public.
