Chest Reshaping After Gynecomastia Surgery
After gynecomastia surgery the results are permanent. Typically the only way to see your results change after gynecomastia surgery is through significant weight gain. As long as you keep your weight healthy and exercise, you should be perfectly fine. If you were asking about toning your chest, this is possible with exercise as well. But once the excess breast tissue is removed, it will not come back.
The Lasting Effects of Gynecomastia Surgery
Therefore, weight gain, steroid use,recreational drug use and have hormonal conditions can contribute to a return of gynecomastia regardless of previous surgical removal and treatments.Each patient is unique and previous #results are not a guarantee for individual outcomes. As with all cosmetic surgery, results will be rewarding if expectations are realistic.
It is possible for your chest to change shape following male breast reduction.
Thanks for sharing your question. Are you asking whether or not you can reverse the effects of your male breast reduction procedure without having to undergo another surgery, or are you looking for a more toned look? Significant weight gain can affect your results and may even have a “reversing” effect, but exercising and following a healthy diet can help to achieve an even leaner, more toned look. You can absolutely still improve upon your natural contours through diet and exercise, even after your gynecomastia surgery. Do keep in mind, though, that fat gain (versus muscle gain) after your procedure may be difficult to lose again without another surgery. Hope this helps!
