✍️ Who is a good candidate for Gynecomastia Surgery?

Though gynecomastia is very common, it is fairly obvious that not everyone is the right candidate for under gynecomastia surgery. There have been instances where we had to reject a few healthy patients when they did not meet a few criteria.

Here is a list of pointers that make one a good candidate to undergo gynecomastia surgery:

  • Men with realistic expectations
  • Men who do not have a medical condition or life-threatening illnesses that can delay healing
  • Nonsmokers and non-drug users
  • Men with a positive outlook
  • Men with specific goals in mind for improving the symptoms of gynecomastia
  • Men who are physically healthy and have a stable weight
  • Men whose breast development has stabilized
  • Men who are bothered by the feeling that their breasts are too large
  • Men without major skin disorders involving the chest area
