So I saw my doctor maybe a month and a half ago, and he told me that he was going to set me up with a surgeon blah blah blah. So i never got a call from any surgeon, so then i talked to him and he said that he is going to set me up with an appointment with a endocrinologist?

Can someone tell me why he did this and not just go through with surgery? Just to let you know im 17 and he thinks it's really minor. He told me one thing though that this endorinologist might help me with my gynecomastia through special medication.

p.s My pics are in the user photos, if you wanna take a look.

you should definetely see an endicronologist before considering surgery, especially as you're young and the doctor thinks it is relatively minor.

I'd be interested to know what the special medication might be though,

When a patient has Red Flags of a possible growing gynecomastia, I recommend getting that problem evaluated and stable first before having surgery.  This evaluation is typically by an Endocrinologist.

The exception I make for growing breasts are Teenagers with Gynecomastia that have major deformity.  After agreement from the patient, parent(s), endocrinologist and myself, some patients deformities are just too emotionally devastating to wait for stabilization.  The most fascinating thing with my technique is that we have not seen further growth after such surgery.  However, the risk is still there.

Hope this helps,
