Will Your “Man Boobs” Come Back After Gynecomastia Surgery?

Will Your “Man Boobs” Come Back After Gynecomastia Surgery?
Many factors can cause the enlargement of male mammary gland tissue, a condition known as gynecomastia or male breast enlargement. Frequent marijuana use, some medications and an imbalance of hormones are all potential culprits.
Fortunately, Dr. Joshua Greenwald, a New York City plastic surgery provider, can help. By performing male breast reduction in New York, Dr. Greenwald helps his male patients feel more confident and virile.
However, many of these patients wonder if their “man boobs”  will grow back after the male breast reduction procedure. Generally, male breast reduction surgery affords patients with long-lasting results. Nonetheless, the following are factors that may cause the reoccurrence of man boobs after male breast reduction surgery.
Factors That May Cause Your Man Boobs to Reoccur
If the initial cause of male breast enlargement was frequent marijuana use and the patient has not halted or drastically lessened the habit following male breast reduction surgery, then man boobs may reoccur.
In addition, if the initial cause of gynecomastia was a medical problem such as an adrenal or pituitary tumor that has been left undiagnosed or untreated following male breast reduction surgery, then the patient’s man boobs may reoccur.
Another factor that may cause man boobs to reoccur is weight gain following male breast reduction surgery. Although removed fat cells will not grow back, significant weight gain may cause remaining fat cells to grow bigger. Significant weight gain may also cause new fat cells to form in treated and untreated areas.
Other factors, such as having a hormonal imbalance or taking certain medications, also may cause man boobs to reoccur. If you have additional questions or concerns regarding male breast reduction surgery, do not hesitate to call Dr. Greenwald at (914) 421-0113 or (212) 518-1642.
In addition to male breast reduction, the skilled breast reduction provider Dr. Greenwald also offers breast reconstruction and breast lift in New York.
