Acceptance Garments / Re: Maybe I should get a bra
« Last post by curiousk on June 29, 2020, 10:26:44 PM »
Hello all,

I've had gynecomastia since I was a teen, I'm in my 30s and gained a few ponds during confinement.
My chest feels very heavy now and after a few hours standing up it starts to hurt, I've been having a lot of back pain as well.

Do you guys that wear bras think these symptoms would ameliorate with a bra? Any tips on how to calculate the right size?

Thanks.
I think that you will benefit from wearing a bra.   Definitely go and get a professional fitting done.   A lot of stores do fittings for men and go out of their way to make you feel comfortable.   A good fitter will ask you about your needs and suggest bras that will fulfillment those needs.   I’ve been wearing a bra for 6 months and the difference is night and day.   Way more comfortable wearing a bra.

Boob,
You have a
grade 2 gynecomastia. Your doctor is correct in advising breast gland excision and liposuction.  <a class="underlinelink" href="https://www.gynecomastia.org/doctors/ronald-schuster-md/profile"><a class="underlinelink" href="https://www.gynecomastia.org/doctors/ronald-schuster-md/profile"><a class="underlinelink" href="https://www.gynecomastia.org/doctors/ronald-schuster-md/profile"><a class="underlinelink" href="https://www.gynecomastia.org/doctors/ronald-schuster-md/profile"><a class="underlinelink" href="https://www.gynecomastia.org/doctors/ronald-schuster-md/profile"><a class="underlinelink" href="https://www.gynecomastia.org/doctors/ronald-schuster-md/profile">Dr. Schuster[/url][/url][/url][/url][/url][/url]'s technique is a very good one as well and requires great skill and confidence in the procedure.  You have true gynecomastia and not pseudogynecomastia so liposuction alone will NOT work for a great result.  You are young and have great skin and should do very well.
Thank you for your answers Dr Shuster and Dr Delegado.


I did surgery on 22 of June, and this is my  photos on third day of surgery. I would like to hear again your opinions,  the tehnique that is used , is laser liposuction and  removing glandulars in incision under aerola.  Everything  was great, until i decided to take off my compression west for couple of minutes ( on my 4th day),  after 5 minutes i started to feel dizzy, mu  heart beating started to go over 110 in minutes, and my blood pressure was 149 mmHh with 90 mmHg,  and i feel like i will stay without oxygen f at the moment. I went to ER and they did EKG, sugar in blood is completely normal, my saturation is also good. Ekg showed sinus tahicardia, and they gave me  glugose infusion, diazepam and something for blood pressure. After one hour, i was completely fine.

I was wondering is there any way that compression west could cause that, or that started just from my head ?  The tablets that i used are The combination of amoxicillin and clavulanic acid and serrapeptase.  I am very afraid that take off my compression west, i am afraid that attack my occur again.


Here is my updated photos :

Never had thought of it.  To me, nipples are just a part of every one

Hey all, was curious if anyone has any experience with my question? (in subject line)

I have a very mild case of gyno, and it has been a long battle for me. That said, I've recently been more and more interested in getting just a nipple reduction done because I've realized I'm only insecure about it when my nips are sort of pointing through the shirt. 

Any experience with this? How did it turn out? 

Thanks!

Let me start out by saying congratulations on your decision to start wearing a bra. 

It sounds like you are becoming not only aware of your breasts but also the fact that they need to be supported. A bra will support as well as control that unwanted movement that creates unwanted attention. 

Its 2020. Its ok to get professionally fited.

 He really likes wearing a bra. He feels better in a bra  and believes he looks better. I have to admit I agree. I support him 100%

Zink,  thank you for sharing your experience. This has been a support group for me.   I’m so glad it turned out well for you, but it sounds like you had five or six years of challenges.  Would you have liked to have worn a bra during those years,  and if so, how best would’ve been to go about it? 

ABWG,  I agree genetics can play a role. I am a C or D cup, depending on the bra

Ask a Doctor / 8 month post-op and I'm incredibly disappointed, depressed
« Last post by JG15 on June 28, 2020, 01:45:03 PM »
Hey guys,

I had Gynecomastia surgery approximately 8 months ago in Toronto. When I first saw the results after taking off my vest, I was ecstatic. I could wear fitted shirts and not worry about my chest/nipples poking out. My confidence level was at its pinnacle - I was so relieved.

About 2-3 months after my surgery I started noticing that my chest was getting bigger, almost pushing out of my shirt, but it was still tolerable. I could walk around without a shirt and not feel insecure. I was still happy. It was around April heading into May where things started spiraling downwards. My chest, especially my left side, started getting bigger to the point where it looked like I was getting gynecomastia again. Shirts that were fitting in Jan-Feb started feeling tight and giving me the man boob appearance.

I’ve been an absolute mess these last two months and I can’t tell you how much it’s affected my life. I wake up depressed, go to bed depressed and haven’t felt genuinely happy for months now (I’ve spoken to a therapist but it doesn’t really help with my current reality).

I’ve been taking Finasteride since I was 22 (I’m 30 now), and I read online how that might be a contributing factor for recurrence. But I had an ultrasound done and my doctor said there isn’t any recurrence. I also smoke marijuana 1-2 times a week but even when I stopped for a few months, I didn’t notice any change.

I sat down with my surgeon in June and he didn’t see any recurrence either. The part that killed me the most, though, was that he thinks I don’t need revision and that it’ll eventually flatten on its own. There’s no way this thing is gonna heal on its own. He suggested trying to get more lean and working out my chest but I feel like that will compound the issue. I’m 5’8”, 147 lbs so I’m not that big of a person, I just don’t know what it could be? Did he not take out enough breast tissue and fat? Maybe too much excess skin? How could it go from being so flat to how it looks now?

I really, really want to get a revision surgery done, but what do I say to my surgeon to push him towards that direction? I would consider doing revision with another surgeon but the price range can is really high (6-8K). There's no way I can continue walking around like this and be happy. I desperately need help.

Also, for some reason I am unable to attach photos. I've attempted to do so multiple times but to no avail. Not sure why.
