This is a healthy 19 year old male who was very shy, whom avoided gyms and fitted clothing due to excess fat and sub areolar breast tissue known as gynecomastia. This often occurs during puberty and is often caused by excessive estrogen actions and is often the result of an increased ratio of estrogen to androgen.
He was referred to Top Toronto Plastic Surgeon, Dr. Marc DuPéré by his family doctor for a consultation. During his private consultation with Dr. Marc DuPéré, it was determined that the best option for this 19 year old would be removal of the excess breast tissue and liposuction to create a more male looking chest.
Dr. Marc DuPéré thoroughly discussed the gynecomastia procedure including the risks, what a normal recovery is, what the possible risks are, what the costs of the procedure are and what are realistic expectations of the results.
After the consultation and a discussion with his parents, the young man decided to proceed with the gynecomastia procedure.
After a normal gynecomastia recovery, the patient came in for his six month follow up and was extremely happy with the results. He was confident, had started going to the gym and had a girlfriend!
