Reoccurence Possibilities Following Gynecomastia Surgery
The #recurrence of breast enlargement is uncommon following #gynecomastia surgery. However, it can occur. If this happens, you may require further surgery in the future. The male breast is composed of glandular tissue and fatty tissue. An excess in either type of tissue can cause the chest to take on the look of gynecomastia. Gynecomastia can affect #men of all different body types. There are different types of #gynecomastia.
Several common factors can cause gynecomastia including excessive levels of #estrogen, natural #hormone changes, use of recreational drugs or alcohol, medications and their associated side effects, and, various health conditions. Also, there are different types of #gynecomastia.
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.

Will marijuana use cause gynecomastia recurrence?
If you are asking for approval to do something illegal or inappropriate, you won't get it here. Even in states where it is legal for medical uses, it would be inappropriate to intentionally do something that has been shown to cause/worsen gynecomastia.
Certain medications can also worsen gynecomastia or lead to recurrence (since a small amount of tissue remains after proper excision), so the balance must be between the need for the medication and the recurrence potential of your gynecomastia. Perhaps other medications can be substituted. Ask your doctor.
Non-compliance like this drives surgeons wild! But at least you have the wisdom to ask; hopefully, you have the wisdom to listen. Best wishes! Dr. Tholen
