Unilateral gynecomastia is one of the worst forms of gynecomastia and is usually congenital. It is extremely noticeable and can look like a severe deformity due to one breast being large and the other being flat. These patients try to hide their breasts from other people and tend to be introverted because of their social anxiety. Because the breast size and also the diameter and location of the enlarged breast is completely different from the contralateral breast, these cases call for a unilateral breast reduction. After corrective surgery, many patients become much less anxious and more outgoing, finding themselves finally able to pursue life goals and interests they were too anxious to pursue before.
The following unilateral before-and-after photos will give you a sense of the results Dr. Blau has achieved performing corrective unilateral male breast reduction surgery. However, each patient is unique and previous results are not a guarantee for individual outcomes.
