If you were to have gyno surgery?

If you were scheduled to have gyno surgery because of the cycle that you are on, would you come off cycle, get the surgery done and then try another cycle. Or would you stay on because it doesnt matter if the gyno gets worse lol.

What would you do?

    get surgery once ur sure the gyno has stabilized, otherwise u might get it removed and if some gland cells are still in ur chest they will continue growing after the surgery

    Gynecomastia is the benign growth of glandular tissue of the male breast. Among AAS using individuals, it is caused by the peripheral aromatization of androgens into estrogens. The increase in circulating estrogens causes proliferation of breast tissue cells and subsequent enlargement of the breast mass.

    Treatment Options:
    It should be suggested to the patient exhibiting severe gynecomastia that replacing aromatizable androgens such as the testosterone esters with a non-aromatizable androgen will reduce this particular side effect. Care should be taken however to monitor cholesterol levels should a switch be made to non-aromatizable androgens as they are known to negatively effect cholesterol levels.

    Non-surgical: Nearly all of the auxiliary drugs taken by AAS using individuals to combat side effects, will be anti-estrogenic compounds. It is important for the physician to be aware of any additional drugs a patient may be taking in order not to overdose the patient.

    Drug management therapies for gynecomastia involve reducing estrogen activity by either blocking the estrogen receptor and/or inhibiting peripheral aromatization of androgens. Tamoxifen citrate (Nolvadex) and Clomiphene citrate (Clomid) are suggested for competitive inhibition of estrogenic activity at the estrogen receptors, while Anastrozole (Arimidex) is suggested for aromatase inhibition.

    Surgical: The surgical treatment for gynecomastia has had variations since 1538, when the first description of the surgical treatment was attributed to Paulus Aegineta. Since then, various incisions on and under the breast have been used. It is suggested that when gynecomastia is severe, the excess skin should be removed along with the gland and fat. Surgical treatment usually results in permenant resolution of gynecomastia, however, if some breast tissue is unknowingly missed, symptoms can return if high dose AAS use continues

    i wouldnt want to be on cycle for any kind of surgery.

    but if i knew i was going to have gyno surgery in the distant future i wouldnt worry about it getting worse in the meantime, which is actually the position im in, im going to go for surgery next year on what started on as pubescent gyno, i have let it get a little worse and not worried about it as i know i will have it removed at some point

    Thats the position Im in. I have a little gyno from puberty which has gotten worse due to messing about with AS meds (taking them away, introducing them etc). I plan on getting it removed at the end of the year.

    My choice has been to come off though and hope it subsides a little. Even though I know that Im getting it done whatever I still couldnt keep taking AS knowing that its getting worse. I did think about it and tried but I couldnt hack it lol.
