I have Gynecomastia. Is the operation painful? Im ONLY 12

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

At your age this is something you need to discuss with your parents.

Comfort of Gynecomastia Surgery depends on the problem to be treated, surgery techniques used, skill of the surgeon, and many other factors.

How Old Before Considering Gynecomastia Surgery is a factor for any 12 year old with this problem. Typically, surgery should not be done until the problem stabilizes as gynecomastia usually goes away by itself for many. If it has not resolved by 2 years, it typically does not.

Body Shaping Garments are a great temporizing contouring option for those waiting for gynecomastia to stabilize or go away.

Hope this helps,
