Nutrition is very important for healing! Protein is what your body needs to heal and making sure you have protein stores built up before and after surgery will help healing. Best, TMM
For my patients, I want them to eat healthy and take a high quality vitamin that does not contain any vitamin E as it is a blood thinner, hopefully you have reviewed what should and should not be taking before surgery with your surgeon. Good luck.
The best I can recommend prior to surgery is the removal of any item from a patient's diet that may have led to gynecomastia and the coming surgery. However, without knowing all of this the best person to ask for the pre-op requirements would definitely be a question for your plastic surgeon in order to ensure that the surgery passes healthily for you. Best of luck.
Thank you for your question. There are no specific nutrient or diet requirements. Simply maintaining a healthy diet and exercise (...and no smoking) should be good enough.

assuming you are in good general health there are no specific requirements. Obviously check with your own physician.
Gynecomastia surgery is straight forward and there are no nutritional requirements prior to the surgery, except what your surgeon requires if you are having general anesthesia.
