Case Number 1467: Gynecomastia – Male Breast Reduction Surgery

This 32-year old patient from San Diego, California was uncomfortable with the look of his chest and was interested in male breast reduction surgery.

His friend referred him to Dr. Pousti. While researching Dr. Pousti on the Internet, the patient was able to read a great deal of information on gynecomastia, and was confident Dr. Pousti was the best surgeon for him.

The glandular tissue must be removed. This firm fibrous tissue extends from the nipple areola complex down to the surface of the pectoral muscle beneath.

Liposuction was performed to remove some of the fatty tissue which always surrounds this ductal tissue. Without this liposuction some patients would have a “donut” shaped defect after removal of the ductal tissue.

Patient Testimonial: 
After living with gynecomastia for several years I decided that I would start looking for a plastic surgeon to take care of my issue. I did extensive research on the subject and found that Dr. Pousti would be the correct choice to perform my surgery. Going into the surgery I was very nervous of the outcome, but Dr. Pousti assured me that I would be pleased with my results and explained in detail of how the procedure would work. The day of the surgery came and it was over in a flash. I m now three weeks post-op and looking back on the experience I can actually say that the anxiety of finding a plastic surgeon and worrying about the results was far worse than the actual surgery itself. The results of the surgery were what I hoped it would be I now have a huge sense of relief and feel that a weight has been lifted off my shoulders since the procedure. Dr. Pousti, his office staff, and hospital staff were all very professional and made for a pleasant experience and I recommend Dr. Pousti to anyone thinking about the procedure.
