Hi all, just want to say hi and give some updates regarding my gynaecomastia surgery I had on Monday 10th June.

I'm 29 years old, 78kgs and 6'1. Fit, healthy and well exercised.

After undertaking surgery in 2009 on the NHS for gynaecomastia, I quickly discovered only half a job had been done. My main concern were my areolas protruding. A problem that has persisted since the age of 15 and has knocked my confidence in countless ways. Although some gland was removed the problem persisted just as much as before with no improvement. Four years later (can't believe it's that long!) I've taken the plunge and gone private to rectify the situation.

After seeking out a number of surgeons around London/Nottingham I decided to go with Dr Solomos at the HMGroup. I liked his character and he seemed confident and understanding as to exactly what my issue was, bearing in mind how sceptical I've been due to having one failed attempt.

The Highgate hospital/staff were great and Solomos put me at ease as soon as I saw him prior to surgery. Confirmation as to why I chose him. He confirmed the surgery went well and said I'll be happy with the results. I do trust him and fingers crossed I'll no longer have puffy nipples! The chest area as a whole is flatter but can't see for sure the outcome of the nipples as they're bandaged over. He showed me a picture of the glandular tissue removal which I found very interesting and now have.

Only two days later and I've had no painkillers today. I'm mobile but not pushing it and fully aware of my limited movement. Pottering around and walking all good. Chest area, especially gland removal area pretty numb - should regain sensation with time. First night after surgery I barely slept but guess that's due to the General An being pretty hardcore. Slept for a good 7 hours last night with two brief awakenings so guess that's pretty good.

I'll give some more updates soon. So far so good and pleased I went with Dr Solomos:)

Good to hear!  I am having surgery tomorrow morning on my puffy nipples with Dr. Pensler in Chicago.  Very nervous and yet excited.  Its been a long time coming.  Ive missed out on to many events and what not because of this! Should I be ready for anything? Sounds like a identical situation to mine.

hiya, nice to meet you. Best of luck tomorrow with your surgery. Three days down the line and all i can work our so far is you need to be very patient. I've removed some of the padding just to have a quick look at the chest but probably not advisable. Only a few mins in total. Apart from that the garment has been ALL the time. They gave me some blue padding to put under the garment for a couple days. I spoke to the nurse today and I''l keep it there for a bit longer I think; actually like the pressure it's putting on the chest area.

I only found this site after my surgery, maybe don't read too much as most of it is negative on here. I've found some really interesting and helpful topics though. There's probably more negative stuff as people tend to report bad news rather than good.

I completely understand your pain and well done for making the decision, it's a big one to make. I'm trying to be realistic and not holding out for my nips to lie completely flat. Hopefully there will be much improvement though and if they are flat then happy days.

Best of luck tomorrow.
