Dieting and Weight Loss After Gynecomastia Surgery

Well, there is always the consideration that your original surgery was only intended to work with your body weight at that time. I know with my patients I usually recommend that they reach their desired weight or at least close before going into surgery. Weight loss can tend to cause excess flexibility and saggy breasts, which may revert the effectiveness of the procedure you have already had. You may get a better final answer from your own surgeon, though. Good luck.
