When it comes to choosing a plastic surgeon, experience matters. Dr. Blau’s practice is devoted to the surgical correction of gynecomastia. In 2013, Dr. Blau performed over 400 gynecomastia surgeries, which is 2% of the total gynecomastia surgeries done in the United States. Dr. Blau’s reputation as a gynecomastia surgeon is unmatched.
Dr. Blau is a board certified plastic surgeon and is also a Diplomate of the American Society of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeons. He was featured in the official magazine of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, Plastic Surgery News, in August 2006 as a leading gynecomastia surgeon.
In addition, Dr. Blau is the author of the only book about gynecomastia written by a physician which will be available on Amazon and other outlets in 2014. The book is entitled Masculinity Defined: Gynecomastia and the Search for Perfect Pecs.
Dr. Blau’s artistic ability is shown not only in painting and sculpture, but with his surgical precision with patients. Plastic surgery literature states the average recurrence rate for gynecomastia is as much as 10 to 35%, however Dr. Blau’s recurrence rate with gynecomastia patients is less than 1% because of his skill and technique.
Another very important consideration when choosing a surgeon is to review before and after photos of their work. Dr. Blau provides over 2500 photos of his results, more than any other surgeon. In addition, he supplies at least 3 to 5 angles of a patient because only 1 or 2 views do not always show the true result.
