Frequently Asked Questions

No ,exercise and Diet will not be able to reduce gynecomastia.

Most patients say the surgery is not as painful as they expected. In fact, patients describe their recovery as easy, and the pain as being comparable to the discomfort they experience after a heavy chest workout in the gym.

Most patients begin exercising slowly about one week after surgery and find they are back to their usual gym routine around two weeks. Most men can return to work after 5-7 days unless they have a very physical job and need an extra week to recuperate.

You cannot prevent many of the hormone changes that cause gynecomastia. If needed, you may reduce your risk of breast enlargement by switching medications or seeking treatment for a substance use disorder.
