Can I get rid of gynecomastia without surgery?
In my opinion, the only reliable (and most effective) management of persistent gynecomastia involves surgical excision. It is often best treated with partial excision of the prominent glandular tissue as well as liposuction surgery of the peripheral chest area. If the prominence of the chest wall is caused by adipose tissue (lipomastia), then liposuction surgery may suffice.
When the time is right, seek consultation with board-certified plastic surgeons who can demonstrate significant experience helping patients achieve the types of outcomes you will be pleased with. Best wishes.
Thank you for your question. From the information you provided, it seems that the increase in your chest size is due to weight gain over the past year. Before considering gynecomastia surgery, I recommend trying to drop the weight you put on. However, if you are truly concerned about the possibility of having gynecomastia, consult with a gynecomastia surgeon near you. He/she will check your chest to see if you have true gynecomastia.

1. Experience matters. Choosing a surgeon increases the likelihood that they have seen a case similar to yours in the past. Selecting a surgeon whose practice is focused on gynecomastia exclusively is also an indicator of experience.
2. Results matter. The more before-and-after pictures, the better. Pay attention whether the surgeon is confident enough to show multiple angles of the same patient.

Be realistic about your expectations. Also, revision surgery tends to be significantly more difficult than initial surgery.So be extremely careful choosing the right Plastic Surgeon at the beginning.
