Ask Dave: How to Choose a Gynecomastia Surgeon


QUESTION: Dave, how should I chose a surgeon to remove my gynecomastia?

ANSWER: Selecting a surgeon is as important a choice as the decision to undergo surgery. Choose carefully. The decision is yours. What follows is some advice to assist in making your selection.chest-1

  1. Experience matters. Choosing a surgeon who has performed over one thousand gynecomastia cases 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 photos a surgeon displays, the better. Pay attention not just to the number of pictures, but whether the surgeon is confident enough to show multiple angles of the same patient.

  3. Reviews matter. Have patients reviewed your surgeon? Did those patients undergo the surgery you are considering?

  4. Expertise matters. Is your surgeon recognized by the profession as an authority in the field? Are they certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery? Have they authored books or medical journal articles regarding your surgery?DrBlauBook

I hope these guidelines are of assistance when you are selecting your gynecomastia surgeon. When undergoing surgery, it is very important to be realistic about your expectations. Past results are not a guarantee of future results. Also, remember, revision surgeries (to fix past problems from surgeries done elsewhere) tend to be significantly more difficult than the initial surgery.
