im 20 years old and live in souther cal.. im having surgery on march 17th. kaiser is covering it, i saw my general prac and he referred me to PS. i have been waiting 2-3 years to get these pointy nipples removed, im 6.0 158 pnds.. i work out and run 3-4 miles a day, excersie and diet does not get rid of pointy//puffy nipples but the surgery does. my PS says i have a lump buried behind each nipple so he is gonna make the inscision and cut the bumps out and lipo all the fat he says "he does 3-4 of these surgerys a month and they are mostly all sucsessful.. i cannot wait for this surgery because this gynecomastia is the worst thing to ever happen. its hard not to obsess., i  will post before pix and after the surgery pic's im  confident this is gonna be sucessful because kaiser is extremely good health coverage.

if any 1 else has had kaiser do this please respond with what happend or if any 1 has any questions respond to this forum. !!  :D i just cannot wait another 26 days!!!

also. the PS had me get bloodwork done to make sure my hormone and testosterone levels were normal and they are.. he said that is the main reason  returns. so I'm pretty happy i will post pictures of before and after on April 1'st which is 2 weeks after my surgery is scheduled to take place.  I'm so happy i just cannot wait.


also a good way to cover up Ur puffy or pointy nipples is with medical tape. also with a compression vest.

yeah i just had my procedure done 6 days ago through kaiser. i had a 1500 dollar co pay because thats my plan. but hey, make sure u tell them if u have hard gland tissue behind ur nipple, im not sure they removed my gland, and from what i've been reading thats what causess the puffiness in ur nipple. im 6 days post op and im getting concerned because my nipples are still puffy, but i just got to wait and see. good luck to u my friend and btw. its not bad at all the pain killers work wonders.

Wow, I cannot begin to express the sense of hope this thread has given me. I live in SoCal and Kaiser it is!

Hey Nitro,

How did you get Kaiser to do liposuction? Which office in SoCal did you go to? Can you give me the name of your surgeon?

I just went for my first consultation and they made it clear that liposuction will not be done. Furthermore, the surgeon I saw was not too thrilled about dealing with a gynecomastia patient and made it clear that "cosmetic procedures" are not covered by Kaiser. He did however state that the removal of the gland can be done.

Thanks.
