Gynecomastia

Hi Doc

I have breast tissue on both sides. and the one side is lactating.

Seen a surgeon and an endocrinologist. They say the only way to remove them is surgically.

Im not overweight and exercise at least 9 times from monday till friday.

If the only way to remove them is surgical then what medical aids will cover this procedure because the medical aid im on at the moment says that it falls under cosmetic procedures.

Please doc im desperate.

I suggest that you consult the endocrinologist to write a letter of recommendation to your medical aid, in order for them to cover the procedure.
