Exercise and Workouts Prior to Gynecomastia Surgery
There are three types of surgical treatment options available that treat #gynecomastia. The decision on the type of surgical procedure is based on whether you are an ideal candidate or not. Weight, and more specifically body mass index (#BMI), need to be considered when deciding. For instance, studies have shown that patients with BMI > 30kg/m sq (placing them in the obese category) have a higher complication rate. Therefore, it is important for patients to be as close as possible to their normal body weight prior to #surgery. Not only will this decrease risks of complications, but will also enhance the aesthetic results. Further, normal body weight is different from one patient to another.
Remaining in good #health and #physical shape can contribute to one's candidacy for surgery and their final results.
Thank you for the very good question. Surgery occurs over the muscle so developed muscles will not affect the procedure.
Do chest workouts affect the gyno conditions, or it makes it harder to get rid of during surgery
Chest workouts do not essentially alter the procedure or the difficulty of the surgery. Infact the gland may become a little more pronounced and easy to remove.
Operating on healthy people
Most plastic surgeons prefer working with athletic, fit and not obese patients.
I see no need for you to hinder your workouts.
Stay healthy and exercise.
Best of luck,

Do chest workouts affect the gyno conditions, or it makes it harder to get rid of during surgery?
Thank you for the question. No, chest workouts will not necessarily make it easier or more difficult for your plastic surgeon. Best wishes.
Chest work out prior to gynecomastia surgery
Actually chest workouts will enhance your pectoral muscle definition and may make the glandular more pronounced as it will project it. That should make the excision of the gland easier as it would be more defined and palpable. In addition fat burning excersise will reduce the fatty tissue and make the glandular tissue more visible.
Chest workouts have no effect on Gynecomastia
Answer is neither. Gynecomastia is not effected by workouts. Chest workouts have no effect on surgery. It is a condition that just sits there till corrected. Its surgical correction is optional and not a necessity.
Chest workouts and gynecomastia surgery
No, building up your pectoral muscles won't make the surgery more difficult to perform, since the area targeted lies over the muscles. However, sometimes larger pecs can contribute to the appearance of gynecomastia.
Chest workouts will increase the size of the Pectoralis muscles and make the gynecomastia appear more severe . It will not change the degree of difficulty of the surgery.
Exercise and Gynecomastia Surgery
Thank you for your post. Chest work-outs prior to surgery will not make the surgery more difficult to perform. The tissue, whether it is fatty, glandular, or both sits on top of the pectorals muscle and so any strengthening of this muscle will not interfere with the removal of the tissue sitting on top of it.
Hope that helps,
