This is a 22 year old from Brooklyn, NY, who is 5'10 and 192 lbs, who had been suffering from enlarged male breasts, or Gynecomastia. This is a condition that occurs due to an excess formation of mammary tissue located beneath the male breast resulting in an enlargement. It is a condition that commonly occurs in adolescence between 12 and 18, but corrects itself with age after a few years. At 22, this young man had seen no difference in the appearance of his chest and began to feel uncomfortable removing his shirt in public. He consulted with Dr. Blau, board certified plastic surgeon and a diplomate of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, upon learning that he is the utmost authority world-wide in Gynecomastia and that over 50% of his practice is dedicated to the correction of the condition. Male breast reduction surgery was performed, excising the mammary tissue, along with a small amount of liposuction. The incision is less than an inch in diameter and after only a year following the procedure, it is not noticeable. The patient is very happy with the outcome.
