Episode # 15 - "Who cannot have gynecomastia surgery?" Dr. Caridi from the Austin Gynecomastia Center answers this question in his YouTube miniseries.
This is a brotherhood and we are all here to help one another. I don’t want to turn away anyone who needs help.
With that being said, I get two major categories of patients I receive online consultations from. The first category - patients who don’t even have gynecomastia and don’t need treatment! This is my favorite category because I get to tell them that they have nothing to worry about and be confident with your chest, and life goes on. The happiness I get in these inquiries alone is enough to make answering these online consultations every day completely worth it.
The second category - patients who are markedly overweight. I will start this discussion by saying that I have a holistic view of treatment. What does this mean? It means I look at the entire medical history of the patient when determining if it is SAFE to operate. Whether or not you have a family history of medical problems, high blood pressure, obesity, lung or heart disease, and many other factors are important when discussing the safety of your surgery. This isn’t discrimination. This is about your safety, my number one priority. My first order of business in this case is to motivate you to reach your ideal weight goals before your procedure. Once you reach these goals, we can re-evaluate treatment and have results that are more ideal, safe, and reliable.
