This 36-year-old Portsmouth Virginia man had gynecomastia from his teenage years. This genetic component was quite mild, but he used testosterone pills for weightlifting, and he gained weight. Therefore, he had three contributing factors for breast enlargement. With this degree of severe breast enlargement, normally some type of skin removal would be necessary to correct the excess skin stretched by the breast tissue once it is removed. After a thorough discussion, we decided to bring about a dramatic result without removing the very last bit of breast tissue to avoid wrinkling or sagging of skin. Removing the last 5 to 10 percent of the breast tissue was possible but could require scars to lift the sagging and irregular skin left behind. He is extremely happy with the improvement, comfortable without his shirt and he can walk on the beach with no visible scars.
