I am 16 have gynecomastia for 3 years and have been told to wait before surgery.

How Old Before Having Gynecomastia Surgery is a common question. What has not resolved by 2 years typically will not. Making a 12 year old live with his gynecomastia that started at the age of 9 and not changed for the past year, makes little sense to me.

No Surgery Body Shaping Garments are a great temporary contouring solution while waiting until funds have been saved or other factors stabilized such as weight loss or a transient breast swelling that can happen during the imbalance of hormones during puberty.

Hope this helps,
