Gynecomastia Reduction Patient 41**
About This Patient
This 20 year old asked Dr. Parker to help him improve the appearance of his large breasts, first noted at puberty. These persisted despite a 40 pound weight loss achieved with diet and exercise. The appearance of his breasts were troubling him a lot, resulting in his refusal to wear t-shirts. The patient is 6 ‘ tall and weighs 200 pounds. Dr. Parker, using VASER liposuction, removed 525 cc of fat and tissue from each breast and 450 cc of fat from the area beneath each armpit, call the “axillary” area. Following surgery, the patient had no pain and enjoyed a prompt recovery with little bruising. His skin has contracted nicely after the procedure to conform to the breast shape Dr. Parker created. The patient is very pleased with his flatter, much more normal chest.
