23 years old, had glandular tissue develop behind my nipples around the age of 13.

I finally got surgery with a plastic surgeon and I would like to share my story and results. (Let's hope the turn out well)

I just had the excision with the glands removed. I did not have any fat so I did not require any liposuction. The surgeon made a small incision below my nipples and I believe they are circular.

Before surgery:



The surgery itself cost $4,700.

I am 54 hours out right now and haven't had any significant pain. A bit of tenderness and discomfort but otherwise good.

Here is a photo of the compression garment they gave me. Under Armor compression shirt underneath. This is hardly noticeable underneath a t-shirt.


The surgery last about 75 minutes I think. I just had local anesthesia and it wasn't painful. The needles for freezing hurt a little bit but not bad.

The surgeon showed me one of the glands that he removed. It was probably the size of a beer bottle cap and he said it was as hard as cement. The glands looked quite similar to this (sorry if you have a week stomach, it made me feel sick too:

Here are some of the instructions I was given:
-don't shower for 2 days
-don't lift arms above head for about 3 weeks
-wear garment + compression shirt for 3 weeks
-wear compression shirt for 2 months total
-remove tape after 1 week

I also bought some special silicone liquid from the surgeon's office which is to hep heal/reduce scarring.

Please comment, give advice, similar stores, etc. Thanks!

Thanks for the response

Dr. Perron in Calgary, Canada.
He's a plastic surgeon and says he has done hundreds of these surgeries over the last 10+ years. I was very happy with the whole experience at his office.

I will keep you updated. I plan on adding some more pics next Thursday when I can take the tapes off.

yours didnt look too bad before, but we all know how troublesome it is to deal with it. you'll be nice and flat just in time for summer!

Thank you, siphon. I appreciate the response.

I've been wearing an under armor shirt with compression garment on top. I'll wear the garment for 3 weeks and shirt for 2 months.

Yea it wasn't terrible but I was really self conscious about it.

Here's a pic from today. No pain, no real swelling, just some bruising. 100 hours post surgery.

6 days post-surgery:

-I haven't really had any swelling
-Yellowish bruising is healing well
-I've had no pain

My only concern now is how my nipples are going to look when I take the tapes off in 2 days Hopefully they are small and flat!

Thanks a lot guys.

I just noticed last night that there are little cuts right underneath the tips of my nipples. Not sure how that happened, maybe just cuz the skin is dry and taped down. Hopefully that heals up okay tho.

I will post some pics Thursday when the tapes are off!

1 week post-surgery, I took the tapes off today and here's how it looks:




Pretty happy with the results right now!!

The stitches seemed completely dissolved, the incisions aren't even that noticeable, the nipples look smaller and flat.

I still have some pain and tenderness, especially cuz some of the skin came off with the tapes but otherwise all is good!

I hope to have some more pics in the next couple weeks and I  hope the healing process goes well!

Please leave some comments! Thanks
