My Scheduled Surgery with Dr. Mordcai Blau

I am probably a somewhat unusual patient for Dr. Blau as the field of expertise for which he has become renowned is gynecomastia. I am a transgender female to male patient seeking what is commonly known as ‘top surgery’ i.e. removal of breast tissue and reconstruction of chest.

As a bodybuilder I was introduced to him by friends who had received surgery at his Westchester office and had extremely positive outcomes. I went for my initial consultation about two years ago but because I was not in a position to have the surgery done at that time I returned again two months ago to have another evaluation.

As was the case on my previous visit, I found the office staff to be extremely friendly and the waiting room comfortable and the surroundings homely rather than intimidating.

On meeting Dr. Blau he examined me and evaluated me for surgery explaining what he would do and what results he hoped he would achieve. It turns out that I have a concave in my chest which he felt could be filled in by taking fat from my lower back via liposuction during the procedure and this would create a much better result. I am sure many surgeons who practice in this field would not have been so concerned with that. I found this extremely reassuring and exciting, knowing that I would finally have the physique I wanted making my transition complete.

My surgery was initially scheduled for October 21st but due to the fact that I thought I may have a Urinary Tract Infection, which surfaced three days before surgery, Dr. Blau was unwilling to take a risk of operating in case the infection spread.

It turned out not to be a UTI but nevertheless his caution showed that he took my surgery and my general health and outcome very seriously which again reflects his professionalism.

My surgery is now scheduled for November 18 and I will update with details of my procedure and results as soon as I have recovered sufficiently.
