Acceptance / Re: I love my gynecumastia. Anyone else?
« Last post by curiousk on March 02, 2021, 06:19:35 AM »
Honestly, I'm come to love my breasts after I got out of high school and learned how it's not a bad thing to have enlarged breasts.  When I got a girlfriend and we became intimate, I found that my breasts enjoyed the same kind of attention as most women.  In a kin spirit way, I started to relate to women in a different light, realizing that we have something in common, breasts.  Probably sharing similar hormones, ways of thinking, etc.

While I've only been wearing a bra for a little more than a year, I love the way I look in my bra, the clothes I wear with it and the comfort I have when I wear one.  Definitely should have done it years ago, but glad I'm doing it now.  One of the best decisions I could make.  Plus, I wear different types and colors of bras too.   Probably the only article of clothes that men wear that can be fun to spice up.

Thank you Dr Jacob's. Yes I'm going to try and put it to the back of my mind for now. I will repost at the 3/4 month mark and see how it looks then. Thanks again

Just came across this thread now.

I'm 28 and developed my gyne in my early 20's, so I can't speak from experience about school and gyne.  However, I agree with the general consensus that you'd be better off in a bra, at least at home for the time being.  I don't know about you, but I find my nipples (and even breast skin overall) are very prone to irritation from rubbing on shirts, and I'm currently still trying to muster the courage to start buying myself (so I know it's not easy).  If you also have to deal with the same sensitivity issues then a bra will certainly help.

And as others have said, that solid mass you felt is the glandular tissue.  So you definitely have real breasts, not just a bit of fat that you can get rid of with exercise.  The general rule of thumb is that gyne will either clear up within 2 years, or stay for life.  So I'm afraid it's not looking good for "going away in time".  And as it has been mentioned, taking testosterone supplements can cause your gyne to get even worse.  If your body decided to maintain a specific balance between testosterone and estrogen, it'll keep that balance by converting a lot of the extra testosterone into estrogen.  Besides, those supplements can also come with various unwanted side effects.

With regards to the other kids at school, I know this isn't easy but you'll have to develop a thick skin.  I didn't have breasts at the time, but I was bullied a LOT (words can't describe it).  Remember, they're looking for a reaction.  If you don't give them the reaction they're looking for they'll eventually stop.  And remember, it's your body not theirs'.  So don't be pressured to make a decision based on what they want.

I’ve been wearing a bra for a relatively short time compared to most, just 5 months. But, it has become second nature to put one on after making coffee. I’m very aware when not wearing one in the morning as I quite feel the wiggle and jiggle. They just feel so sensitive for some reason. Sometimes makes me feel like they’re not done growing yet. 
For the most part I do forget I’m in a bra except for when the bra is doing it’s job. I’m fairly active and one of the things I’ve noticed is I now longer have to grab my chest going over bumps when driving. I still can’t believe that I waited this long. Guys, if surgery is not on the table, wear a bra!

Thank you. With now only 1/5 surgeons in favor of it it's probably safe to write off the donut lift.

I have one last question: Is there a reason why both of you prefer a free-nipple graft over the pedicle method? My understanding is that there's much less risk of complications like nipple loss, pigmentation changes, etc while still allowing for repositioning/resizing, though it may not be able to achieve the flattest possible chest (unsure to what extent).

Please provide some before and after photos.

Realize that we are limited here in that we do not know how much gland was preserved or not and whether what you are viewing is residual gland or perhaps scar tissue.

Best to give yourself 4-6 months to heal and then return to your surgeon to discuss any remaining issues.

Please be patient.  There is swelling present.  At 3-4 months post op, please re-visit us with updated photos. We can then make some suggestions for you.

The 900 lb gorilla in the room is your prior overweight condition, which has effectively diminished the ability of your skin to self-tighten.  In addition, one side is decidedly more droopy than the other.  While your goal of minimal scars is admirable and understandable, I believe the best option for a tight, contoured chest would be a double incision with free nipple graft.  Yes, there would be more scars -- initially.  But in time, they will fade substantially.

A double incision will enable the surgeon to make the areolas as small as you desire, place them in a symmetric and appropriate position, and provide taut skin so that your underlying muscle contour will be visible.

The other options, though tempting, cannot provide the above results in one operation -- and perhaps not in more than one operation.

Tough case -- sorry there are no easy answers.

Good luck in your choice.

Well the old measuring bra has filled up a bit more now and I may have to buy a new one soon.
Only 34B but they say all good things come in small packages and I now love them.
They are so sensual and drive me crazy most days lately. Whats not to love?

I agree aboywithgirls!  I am way more conscious of my breasts when not wearing a bra than wearing.  In fact, I lose all thought of them once I don my bra in the morning.
