Gyne.org patrons,
                I have browsed these forums for a couple months looking for people's surgical results. I am 22 and have had gyne for about a year, no need to elaborate, these f***ing lumps piss me off and sadden me. I thought alot about surgery and many of these testimonials gave me hope that one day my chest would return to normal. But, the one thing that always seems to pop up in a recommendation for surgery, and bum me out, is to expect realistic results. What does this mean? If you have had surgery and considered it a success please answer the fallowing questions and give us people who are looking forward to a cure for our ailment a realistic outlook.

How big were your glands?
How much did the surgeon remove?
How does the effected area feel, self-examining, post surgery apposed to prior surgery?
Does it feel like skin then muscle where the gland was or is there unnatural flesh present?
Would you say that your chest looks normal after the surgery?
How well did the surgery fix the contour of your chest? Does your shirt hang high on your chest muscles or does it still poke out around the lower pectoral?
If your chest was a 10 before you got gyne what would you rate it after surgery?
Rate the success of your surgery: 1-10?
Who was your doctor and how much did it cost.


                                                          To any and all who take the time to answer this,
                                                                          thank you
                                                                                                 -clj

probably works best if people just reply to you on one board like the main one where you got a response or two already, that way the discussions not scattered and uncoordinated. 
* a man is more than a body will ever tell
* if it screws up your life the same, is there really any such thing as "mild" gyne?

means there is a catch with the surgery, but wont compromise the freedom that awaits post op

Hmm. How about you just check out before and after pictures and decide if you would be satisfied with the results. Thats the only way for you realistically to determine it.

Don't know how big the 'glands' were but my m(o)(o)bs were big enough to fill a 'D' cup.

Feels very natural

Yes

Contour is excellent. Shirt hangs high on my pecs now instead of being pushed out by the Gyne lower on the chest.

My guess is that it means, don't expect your chest to look like Superman's without any work!

Agreed.

You should be aiming for an 'Improvement', not 'Perfection', to make your life a little more manageable. 'Hoping' for perfection is one thing, but to 'Expect' it, that's another. Plastic Surgeons are not Wizards/Magicians. They are only human and can only do 'so' much.  ;)

Keep in mind, GRS is just a 'Fix', not a 'Cure'!
