Case Number 2075: Gynecomastia – Male Breast Reduction

This 30-year old patient from San Diego, California was unhappy with the appearance of his chest.  He had gynecomastia (a condition in which males develop enlargement of the breasts).  Gynecomastia affects an estimated 40% to 60% of men. It may affect only one breast or both.

The patient researched for a Board Certified Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeon in Southern California who was experienced in treatement of gynecomastia and found Dr. Pousti’s webiste.   During his consultation, the patient was able to review many before and after pictures of patients with the same cases, the patient knew Dr. Pousti was the right surgeon to perform his surgery.

Markings were carefully made prior to surgery. The lines represent the areas where the tissue will be removed to improve the contour of the chest.

O.R. 10.26.09 098

An incision around the areola was made and the surrounding excess skin were removed. Liposuction was used to remove excess glandular tissue  around and near the aerola.

The patient was placed in the upright position to confrim size and symmetry.  The “puckering” will smooth out with time to show a smooth chest wall.

Patient Testimonial: 
The experience I had with Dr. Pousti and his staffs were excellent My consultations were handled professionally and I felt very comfortable during my visits. When I had my Gynecomastia surgery on 10.26.2009, a few things that really stood out to me was the fact that Dr. Pousti was punctual and the surgery results turned out better than expected. I was informed that the surgery went a bit longer than expected only because Dr Pousti wanted to ensure that I received exactly what I was looking for. I'm currently recovering and my results have been improving greatly While I'm at my post-op visits, all of the staff greets me with smiles and professionalism. Now I am in week 5 of my recovery and I still receive check up calls from them to see how my recovery is taking place. I never feel rushed whether I have questions on the phone or in person. After the surgery, I was such a hurry to get back into the gym but I knew I have to rest my body in order to heal. With Dr. Pousti knowing my situation with fitness and sports he informed me on when it's appropriate to return to the gym and my workout intensity. It really shows that he cares not only professionally, but also personally. Thank you Dr. Pousti and ALL of the staff You've definitely helped change my life.
