This 41 year-old gentleman presented with complaints of enlarged male breasts, or gynecomastia. Although some men develop this condition as the result of anabolic steroid use or excessive marijuana use this patient developed gynecomastia or enlarged male breasts for no apparent reason. Dr. Davidson performed a gynecomastia correction (male breast reduction) which included liposuction of the breasts as well as directly removing the glandular breast tissue through an open incision. Can you see the scar along the bottom of the areola? Even without chest hair the scar is virtually imperceptible.
