This is an 18 year old Brooklyn, New York City, NY male, who is 6'2 and 160 lbs, who developed Gynecomastia during adolescence. Gynecomastia is a condition that develops due to the formation of mammary tissue located beneath the male breast resulting in an enlargement. It can affect up to 60% of adolescent boys, and although milder cases often resolve themselves with maturity (often by age 17), more severe or tubular cases, such as in this young man's case, will not dissolve with age. The patient felt extremely uncomfortable with the appearance of his chest and refrained from activities that required him to remove his shirt in public for fear of being teased by his peers. He decided to consult with Dr. Mordcai Blau, board certified plastic surgeon with over 20 years experience, upon learning that of his superior reputation as a leading authority in his expertise and experience in Gynecomastia surgery. He was further impressed to learn that Dr. Blau is an award-winning painter and sculptor. Male breast reduction surgery was performed, excising the head and tail of the mammary tissue, followed by liposuction. The patient is thrilled with the outcome and feels liberated to be able to remove his shirt in public without his prior self-consciousness.
