Before I finally met Dr. Blau, I had gone through a few surgeries with 2 other doctors. The first doctor removed breast tissue on both sides. He did an ok job except left a little excess scarring. It wasn't the end of the world but it could have gone better. I later got big into weight lifting and even took a pro-hormone like an idiot. As a result, some gyro tissue returned. I then had a serious back injury and lost a lot of size since I couldn't work out for a long time. The result was that I had loose skin/flab/fat and still this Gyno. I then went to a second doctor who destroyed me. This was where the real nightmare began. He told me he was going to remove the tissue, some skin around my nipples, and liposuction. It turned out he only did a little lipo, did NOT remove the tissue, and removed too much skin. The result was still not a good chest shape and absolutely horrific scarring. I was completely depressed for a couple of years. I thought I was never going to go swimming ever again or go to the beach. I knew I couldn't hide it forever. I was literally at the end of my rope. I really can't put into words what this did to me physically and psychologically. Whenever I would think about it (which was constantly) I would get so angry that I couldn't see straight.
Then, I FINALLY met Dr. Blau thank God. As soon as I met him, I knew he was different. He wasn't like those other guys. I could tell that he really cared about me and felt so bad that I went through this nightmare over the previous several years. He gave me realistic expectations, but then gave me way better results than I could have imagined. When I had my surgery, I was surprised that he did it under local anesthesia and not put me under. I realized that he's so good at what he does that he doesn't even need to knock you out for it. What Dr. Blau did was he removed the excess scarring (as much as humanly possible), and he removed the breast tissue on both sides. After that, he injected Kenalog shots into the rest of the scarring that couldn't be removed. Most of these scars were raised and could be seen through my t- shirt, but these shots flattened the scars and made them smooth. We then did liposuction on just the left side because the right side didn't need it. Again, I was wide awake for all of these and had no pain.
The end result was that I finally got the shape to my chest that I've always wanted and it's because of Dr. Blau. The only thing that was left was some left over smoother scars that just could not be fixed anymore with surgery. So I then got Tattoos to cover them. These pictures below are the early stages of the tattoos. I have done more since to cover it more.
I still can't believe that he was able to fix such a horrific case like mine. If he can help me then he can help anyone hands down. Don't go to another doctor that does a little of this and that. If you want gynecomastia surgery then you have to go to someone who specializes specifically in Gyno surgery and Dr. Blau is the best in the county. He's the pioneer of this surgery. If you need to get on a plane to see this guy then start booking those tickets! I wrote this in hopes that I could help another person to understand that there's hope out there so never give up.
