I would like to know more about this condition & the improvement plastic surgery can have based on your experiences. Do men with gynecomastia come out of surgery with a masculine chest, or is the end result just a less feminine chest? thanks

It's not really a "masculine" chest per se., you just reduce the breast mound flush to the pectoralis muscle

Would the average person be able to see that the patient had gynecomastia after surgery? And if so, what kinds of clues are there... for example large nipples? depression beneath the areola, etc...

thanks

Usually you don't get nipple-areolar complex hypertrophy (if you do you'd just do some kind of concentric "purse string" reduction of the NAC). There's usually not a whole lot of stigmata afterwards. A number of authorities recommend ultrasonic liposuction as the treatment with manual excision of the discoid shaped structure that tends to be under the NAC in these cases.
