This 21-year-old college student, regardless of rigorous exercise, was left with breast tissue that had him uncomfortable taking off his shirt. He scheduled a consultation to discuss his options for male breast reduction.

During the consultation the patient stated he had two previous procedures by a dermatologist who performed liposuction alone on his chest. The fibrous tissue was not excised, and this tissue is too tough to be removed by liposuction alone. He decided to see Dr. Malhotra for a solution.

He underwent male breast reduction surgery with tissue excision underneath his nipples and liposuction on the periphery and wore a tight wrap around his chest for two days postoperatively.
