Choosing to undergo any form of plastic surgery is a very personal decision to make and it is one that you may not be fully comfortable with disclosing to most people in your life. However, there may be some people, like family and friends, that you may want to discuss your surgery with in order to let them know about your thoughts, insecurities, and opinions. If you’re a male who wants to or has already schedule gynecomastia surgery, you might be a little bit worried about how to talk to your friends about this surgical procedure— if so, follow these three tips.


  • Explain the Surgery
    If you tell your friends that you are having gynecomastia, they are probably going to give you a perplexed look like they have absolutely no clue what you are talking about. Instead, explain the surgery to them in typical terms— it’s a male breast reduction surgery used to get rid of excess breast and fat tissues in the chest region.
  • Tell Them Your Feelings
    Gynecomastia is a very personal procedure that many males feel self conscious about disclosing to very many people.

By disclosing your emotions, you can help your frIends know how to best be there for you and offer you support.
  • Explain Your Decision
    The decision to undergo any form of plastic surgery is a big deal. When telling your friends about your decision to undergo gynecomastia, explain to them how you landed upon your decision. For instance, are you self conscious to be seen without your shirt on? Did you recently lose a bunch of weight but still have excess breast fat and tissues? By explaining your decision to your friends, they can better understand the procedure and why it’s of significant value to you.
