How do I pick a gynecomastia surgeon?

How to Choose Your Gynecomastia Surgeon is such a major topic that I wrote an entire resource dedicated to the process. Pictures should also play an important role in this selection process: How to Evaluate Gynecomastia Photographs. Unfortunately, I have seen many unhappy patients after surgery done elsewhere that did not have the option to see just what their doctor's skills were like before surgery. Limited examples, missing views, changed lighting, and many other factors make this a critical examination. Know what you are getting into is much better than gambling with the unknown.

Hope this helps,

Actually you did not follow the links where you can view thousands of before, during, and after gynecomastia surgery. The links can bring you to one of the largest resources about this surgery. Here is but one of the many

Gynecomastia Before and After Surgery Picture Gallery that are listed on that resource page.

Here is another: Pictures Bruising Swelling and Recovery After Gynecomastia Surgery.

Hope this helps,

This should not be construed as medical advice. I am a retired Board Certified Plastic Surgeon.

I certainly think that another way to choose your doctor is to avoid someone desperate enough to hire link spammers to plaster in forums content that has nothing to do with the topic. The Link Name was Gynecomastia India and had not one item about Gynecomastia the problem nor the surgical treatment. Instead it was to a page about liposuction which by itself can be a disaster for management of this condition. These are extensive discussions about liposuction alone failures for gynecomastia:

Gynecomastia Surgery Forum - Will Liposuction Remove Gland?

and

Gynecomastia Forum - Does Sharp Cutting Liposuction Remove Gland?.

The Link Spamming Service did not even link to the "surgeon's" gynecomastia page. When I looked, not one before and after picture about gynecomastia. That should be a clue alone by itself. The spammer also posted how inexpensive their surgery was, but again, not one example of before after male breast reduction surgery?!Perhaps that is why they linked to a liposuction page? The poster mentioned:
