Gynecomastia surgery

I've had gynecomastia since 2010, and have since been trying to get rid of it through weight loss and hormone medication. All of the doctors I've spoken to have agreed that surgery is now the only way to get rid of it. I am 20 years old.

Basically I want to know whether getting surgery for it would be a bar to entry. I'm f*cking done with it, I feel self concious all the time and I'm having the procedure. I just want to know whether I'm good, or I should start looking for other career paths.

I'd be really grateful for any replies, Ninja or Angrydoc, you had any candidates with this question?

Also accepting man boob jokes if they make me laugh.

Largely depends on the cause to be honest. I assume you've had your adeno-pituitary axis checked?
Gynecomastia is no laughing matter.....

TBH I served with all shapes of men, sunken chests, moobs, fat knackers and whippets alike, so a bit of major boobage might have been a welcome change. But if you've made your mind up, best of luck with it. I hope your new hooter free chest will succeed in the Navy or out of it, and that your adrenals are no cause for concern.


It depends in the cause to be honest. Some causes are permanently remediable, others aren't. Conditions that require ongoing treatment are typically not acceptable.
I see. I'm planning on joining the UOTC this year. If I get as far as the medical that'll give me a rough idea. I'll ask my GP about the adreno-pituitary axis too. Thanks for your help.
