[font="Open Sans", sans-serif]Is this gynecomastia? And what do you guys think of Dr. Lawrence Tong of the Yorkville Institute of Plastic Surgery in Toronto? He seems eminently qualified and has glowing reviews but I'm concerned that he only has before and after pictures of two gynecomastia patients on his website.[/font][/color]

Yes, you do have gynecomastia.

Sorry, do not know Dr Tong.

Thanks doc, what category would you say this is? And what procedures do I need? Do you think I will have loose skin after removal of the glands and fat?

You have a moderate amount of excess tissue plus puffy nipples.  In the hands of a gyne expert, you should end up with a nicely contoured chest with nipples which lie flush and flat with the surrounding skin all the time.  There should not be any loose skin anticipated.

Do your homework and look for a plastic surgeon who has demonstrated significant interest and expertise in performing gyne surgery.

Good luck!

What would you charge to do my surgery? And what procedures would you employ?

You  have gynecomastia. You will in all likely hood require a combination of liposuction and glandular excision.
