Abstract and Introduction

Description

A 22-year-old man with known Klinefelter syndrome desired corrective surgery for gynecomastia. He had had marked gynecomastia with severe skin redundancy (Fig 1) for the past several years. The patient had suffered considerable psychological stress related to his condition. The gynecomastia was treated with simple mastectomies and nipple grafting (Fig 2).
