This patient is in his early 20s and has been bothered by breast enlargement since elementary school. The amount of breast enlargement is considerable, causing sag, especially on the right. During excision of gynecomastia (removal of the breast tissue), there is the option of removing a doughnut of skin around the areola. This is also known as a purse string lift. He was not especially bothered by the sag and understood that he could always have the skin tightened later. His post operative photo shows him four months after surgery performed under general anesthesia. He is absolutely ecstatic about no longer having breasts. Although there is a little sag most notable on the right, he is not bothered by this. This extra skin could be tightened with a procedure under local anesthesia, resulting in more scar. He is perfectly happy with his improvement and chose no skin tightening.

Practice Policy Update Regarding COVID-19

We are excited to announce our reopening as of May 1st. While many things have changed, one thing has remained the same: Our commitment to your safety.

Consultations are available in our office and we will continue to offer Virtual Consultations as well. You will be asked to complete your registration paperwork in our secure patient portal prior to your appointment and your consultation fee will be collected by phone to minimize contact.

Here are a few changes we have made as we transition to this new era:

  • Please reschedule your appointment if you are not feeling well, have a fever, have been exposed to anyone with Covid-19 or travelled internationally within the last month.
  • We will limit the number of people in the building and waiting area to maintain social distancing and our staff will be wearing masks until restrictions are eased.
  • Please wear a mask during your visit but do not wear gloves. You will be given hand sanitizer.
