Post-Op Gynecomastia in Adolescents Photos: 1 Year
This is a 16 year old teenager from Fairfield County, CT, who is 5'10 and 140 lbs. He began to experience Gynecomastia, or enlarged male breasts during early puberty. He felt embarrassed by the appearance of his chest and withdrew from activities at school that required him to remove his shirt for fear of being teased by his peers. He spoke to his parents about the issue and after researching the condition they discovered that 30% to 60% of adolescent boys develop Gynecomastia between the ages of 8 and 12 and although it often clears up by the age of 17, severe or tubular cases can remain for life unless corrected surgically. They decided to consult with Dr. Blau, board certified plastic surgeon with over 20 years experience. The teen's parents felt comfortable with Dr. Blau upon learning that he is renowned across the globe as a leading authority in his experience and knowledge in Gynecomastia surgery. They were further impressed by the numerous other teen Gynecomastia he had successfully corrected. Male breast reduction surgery was performed, excising the mammary tissue beneath the breast responsible for the enlargement followed by a small amount of liposuction. The incision is only an inch in diameter and discreet. The patient is extremely happy with the results and no longer feel embarrassed to remove his shirt in public. Dr. Blau sees patients from across the country, such as San Diego, CA, Tempe, AZ, Pittsburgh, PA and Jacksonville, FL. Call 914-428-4700 to set up a consultation.
