Before

It is not just women who have problems from having too much breast tissue. This 23 old young man presented with bilateral breast development (gynecomastia) that made him very self-conscious. He was worked up for any possible hormonal issues and that was negative. Male breast development is not rare and often seen at puberty. Most of the time it resolves itself with time but in some unfortunate individuals, it persists. The challenge is taking out the breast tissue without leaving visible scars or creating a concavity on the chest. Although we tried, we were unable to convince his insurance to cover this.

After

He is shown just over 5 months after surgery. His scars are very inconspicuous along the lower half margin of his areolae. His contour is normal and he is no longer self-conscious about his chest. This is an ideal outcome.
