No, : No, he would not need to have his hormone levels checked or take medications after surgery. Just as in women who have breast reduction, removing the tissue is permanent, although if patients have significant weight gain after the surgery the remaining tissue can enlarge, so he will just need to avoide weight gain.

Check before surgery: I would check his hormone levels prior to surgery and treat only if elevated.
