« Last post by zshane1125 on February 24, 2021, 07:42:34 AM »
Hi guys, just a 4 year update. I got alot leaner, and the indentation got better, but here are some bad news...

The indentation never went away, it's pretty subtle when not flexed, but very apparent when flexed, also the gyno on my right pec came back just a few months ago for no reason...

Your breasts are quite large and female in appearance with puffy feminine nipples.  Definitely gynecomastia. I am sure your breasts jiggle quite a bit and you can see them including moving under your tops with nipples sometimes even showing through.

Surgery is the only treatment and you are too young. Maybe they will go away with time, but most likely just grow bigger. How long have you been developing breasts?

Just an update, went to sgh today and doc advised for blood test and scan to make sure everything is ok before referring to plastic surgeon. 

Scan will be next month, followed by appt with plastic surgeon. 

Price for today's consultation is about $210 including consultation + blood test, following scan can be paid using medisave. 

(Price is after govt subsidy, referral from polyclinic) 
If indeed your problem is scar tissue, it is inside and cannot be treated by external application of silicone strips/patches on the outside.  It would have to be treated with a cortisone injection.   Sorry

Revision Surgery / Crater deformity, what can I expect
« Last post by Ganymede on February 23, 2021, 04:52:57 PM »

I had surgery 5 years ago. The deformity appeared very soon during recovery, it was already apparent a few days after the surgery that too much tissue was removed. I was very slim back then but the surgeon still insisted for a complementary liposuction... Definitely not the best choice, which I regret now.

Anyways the crater wasn’t looking so bad to me before when I was slimmer, but now that I have put on some weight, on top of the worsened appearance, I constantly feel a hole in my chest and a tugging/stinging sensation that starts to take a toll on me. I can’t live like this.

I consulted with a surgeon recently who proposed a fat graft to fill the area alongside the release of the tethering scar tissue. He advised me to lose weight before our next appointment as, according to his words, the smaller the graft, the better the results will turn out, even though it might still be underwhelming.

Included are two pictures, relaxed and arm raised.

Do you think this can be recovered? What kind of results can I expect?

Is fat grafting the best method for me? Or are fat flaps more adequate?

Thank you for your answers and your precious help. In
Thank you doc, you are way better of my surgent, at least in talking to me, unfortunately, he pissed me off with his way of talking, he doesn't know, or understand what a guy with this issue has faced in life (or avoid to do because of this issue), he told me it's perfect, it's a satisfying result, how can you say that if the goal was to have a normal chest at least wearing a tight t short like i always hoped before the surgery.

He told me he wouldn't take all of the gland, which is i know, but i think, he left more than he should in the left side, the right side is fine.

Doc if i may ask, is there anything i can do to make this better? I read online that "CICA CARE Silicone Patch" can soften the scar tissue (although i'm not sure this is scar tissue because i feel something bigger), is this true?

PS: My surgent never did steroids shots or anything like that, so it's not an option here.

I was very lucky that my gym teacher, also my wrestling coach and a great mentor, never put me in those embarrassing situations.  If we were standing in line for shirts and skins, you could see him counting to make sure that I was always a shirt and never a skin.  He never talked about it, but he never put me in that position.  I'm thankful for that.  Honestly, being a shirt with bouncing boobs was hard enough.  I'm glad that I wear bras everyday and I'm way more comfortable that way.
Gynecomastia Talk / Gyno and low T
« Last post by justwayne on February 23, 2021, 10:10:05 AM »
I just read a post by Rob 34a about gyno and low t. When I hit the reply button,  it asked me about starting a new topic due to the age of the posts.

Rob 34a, I've been in the same boat. Low T and TRT, both of which cause gyno.

My story is - I had been out of shape for a while, not working out or walking/jogging. I had gained quite a bit of weight, mainly around the belly, and was just exhausted all of the time. Whenever I would sit down, I would want to fall asleep. Along with the weight gain, I did notice that my man boobs had gotten bigger, also.

When I finally went to the doctor about all of it, of course, he told me that I needed to exercise and eat better. He also checked my T which he said was at 92 on the scale he was checking when a man my age should be about 750 - 800. Still not sure which scale he was using. He prescribed TRT and, wow, did I feel better! I did get back into exercising, etc. While I did lose weight,  I couldn't seem to loose the belly or the man boobs.

At the time I did not see this correlation, but I was also seeing a urologist for prostate issues, taking meds and supplements for that.

Realizing that I felt better but the gut and boobs seemed to stay, and get bigger for the breasts, I started researching more. I asked both of my doctors more questions as well as reading everything I could find. Here's what I found;

Low T is self explanatory in itself as it let's estrogens take over. TRT puts excess T in your system, that if not used, is turned into estrogen and stored, by fat (mainly belly fat). Anti-androgens, such as many prostate meds and supplements like saw palmetto, help keep T from turning into DHT which aggravates prostate issues. That let's free T keep circulating in your system which can be converted into estrogen.

So I had a kind of trifecta going on there and once the breast tissue was developed,  it was there! I've been working with both of my doctors and my levels are good for now. I do still feel some of the soreness from breast tissue growth every now and then. They have gotten bigger over the last couple of years but at a little slower rate.

I hope this helps anyone who's wondering what is happening in their bodies.  Aa always consult your doctors but do your research with them.

I double that above, it was bad enough to be forced on the skins team by a sadistic male coach. A female gym teacher probably wouldn’t have, but back then it was only males for the boy’s and females for the girls.
