“Dr. Blau has been hailed as the best surgeon for gynecomastia”
I am a transgender person and for many years prior to my medical transition, I read, researched and obsessed over post-surgical results for the various surgery techniques and the surgeons that performed them. As I searched for a surgeon, I constantly found myself wondering if I would get the results I wanted and if the surgeon would be able to perform the surgical technique I wanted. There are quite a few surgeons touting to specialize in top surgery (breast removal) for trans people, but because we do not make up a large part of the population, many of these surgeons did not perform more than 10-20 per year. Dr. Blau has been hailed as the best surgeon for gynecomastia for a large part of his career. I wanted a surgeon who was the most experienced in the type of surgery I needed and after my research, it was clear that surgeon was Dr. Blau.
Upon consulting with him and his staff, I felt at ease and confident in my choice. The team treated me like every patient who comes to their office, with respect, sincerity and care. I could not have asked for a better experience or better people to be around. I did have a complication (excess bleeding) while in post-op recovery that has necessitated a revision, but despite that I am extremely pleased with my results and feel confident day to day in how I look and feel. Dr. Blau and his staff sincerely care about how I am doing physically and how I feel about the results on an emotional level as well. I can’t thank them enough for helping me and would highly recommend them to any person requiring this surgery.
