This patient is a 20 year old male with excessive breast development, known as gynecomastia. Since puberty, his breasts had become enlarged and had also sagged. He was very self-conscious of his chest and desired an improved contour. He had seen an endocrinologist and all of his hormone levels were within normal range. He did not smoke marijuana or use anabolic steroids, two common causes of gynecomastia in young men.
The surgery was successful in reducing the size of his breasts, lifting the breasts, and giving a good contour to his chest. He also had a reduction in the size of the areolas surrounding his nipples. The scars were hidden nicely around the areolas and in the folds at the bottom of the breasts. The patient was much more comfortable playing sports and taking his shirt off in front of others.
