This is a 23 year old young man who is 5’10” and 190 pounds who complained about “puffy nipples”. It bothers him a lot. On a scale of 1 to 10, ten being the worst, he rated it as a nine! He says he thinks about it every day and has to be very careful about what he wears and is very self-conscious.
This guy is buffed for sure and most guys would love to have the physique that he has. Yet this is very traumatic for him. He has some glandular material that I can appreciate on examination immediately beneath his nipple-areola complexes on both sides. He has some fullness to this area that is worse depending on how relaxed the muscle is around his areolas.
Under local anesthesia and in about 30 minutes I removed a small amount of breast tissue on both sides with gynecomastia surgery. You can see the specimen in the pictures included. He has healed very well and is very pleased with the results and is appreciative of my services to help him. I don’t suppose you can actually see much of a difference in the photos, but any guy out there who suffers from the same thing he did is well aware of the difference. Simply put, he doesn’t want to appear to have nipples when wearing a shirt. His problem is solved and he is very happy.
I recently asked this patient to respond to some questions after viewing his final photographs. I was wondering if I would get more information than what I can typically obtain face-to-face. Here are my questions and his responses:
