Hairy Gynecomastia Beast!!!!
« on: February 18, 2007, 06:06:40 PM »
Hi all,

I have surgery in two weeks.  I am a hairy beast!  I have lots of hair on my chest.  Did you guys who are also hairy shave your chest or just trim down the hair prior to surgery?

I trimmed it down 2 weeks ago to see how it looks/feels.  It first off shows my boobies even more and secondly it itches.  I often find myself scratching my chest.

Thanks.

I'm relatively hairy.  I trimmed it down with clippers a couple weeks before hand.  So it was about 1/8" at surgery.  Just so he could see what he was doing easier. 

If not, he said he would have cut it most likely.

many ps's will do that, i'd let them do it and try to adjust to match later. 
* 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?

I was advised the exact opposite of that by my PS and by others who had used him beforehand.  The heavy adhesive bandages that my PS uses to truss you up like a turkey after surgery, stick to your skin very firmly.  If you don’t shave before your surgery (armpits, back and chest) you will be in agony when the adhesive bandages have to be peeled off.  :'(

I would suggest each person going for surgery talks to their own PS beforehand and asks about this.  Different PS’s use different methods.
