Just curious to know if you have gyno surgery and the surgen does a good job and gets rid of most of the tissue can it come back again or are you at reduced risk of it?

If the surgeon doesn't remove the whole mammary gland (which very few do for gynecomastia) then yes it can.
Is there a reason they dont remove the whole gland? or do the just do the minimum required to make it look ok and assume it wont get any worse.

Generally a surgeon will only do what is necessary because surgery carries risks, there is little benefit to risk ratio in removing the whole gland for what is basically a cosmetic procedure.

As a matter of interest, are there any long term risks or sides that you know of, associated with the complete removal of the glands ?

If the surgeon removes the whole gland theres a greater risk of having inverted nipples... I was told by a surgeon that if I wanted to have the whole gland removed then I would need an implant to try to stop inverted nipples.... which could end up looking worse.
Exactly, they will leave a button of tissue under the nipple to stop it dying from a lack of blood supply.

The end of my thread explains a bit about surgery and aftercare.
