Yes, oftentimes the lack of improvement of gyne when someone exercises results in disappointment, disillusionment and despair.  They then give up on the diet/exercise program and gain weight.

Now that you have had your "excuse" removed, get determined to hit the gym hard and get rid of the remaining excess tissues of the abdomen.

Did they do any lipo? I am looking at another Korean Clinic (Silhouette) that does both lipo/excision through the nipple incision wondering if yours did the same.

OP here-

Yes, he did lipo too. I didn't get to see how much though cos when they woke me up on the operating table, I was so out of it, I only remember telling them "sorry I'm so drunk"! Then the doc brought in the glands to show me. But I never asked how much fat did he suck out with the lipo. Good luck with whichever clinic you decide to go with :)

Thanks for replying, cant see any lipo holes so he must have gone through the niple as well, seems to be the technique in Korea. Those results look great man, congrats. 
How long did it take between booking and the surgery day, do you think I have to book well in advance?

I booked the procedure in late April (for mid July). But they have a calendar on their website- I'd say you could book it 2 weeks before and still get it performed, they seem very efficient.

OP here- decided to do an update. Today is 5 days post surgery. I'm pretty bruised but it doesn't hurt as much anymore. I'm a bit lumpy but I won't make any judgements until more time has passed.

Looks good, the bruising doesn't look bad at all for such short period. How's living with the compression vest so far?
By the way, Dr. Jabocs, am I right that the bruising is more caused by the lipo? So if the surgery consisted only of gland removal, there should not be too much bruising?

Thanks man. Yeah the compression vest is ok but I feel like it pushes my stomach out since the sides of it are so tight- I feel like I have to walk around with my stomach sucked in (I know I have to lose fat too obviously!). I also wish I had the chance to come here at a cooler time of the year as the heat is too intense for me right now and the compression vest makes it even hotter and sweatier.

Op here-
 So decided to show my progress pics- it's basically a week since the surgery. I  don't really feel sore anymore, maybe just a bit numb, especially around the nipple area. Gonna continue wearing the compression vest 24/7 for the next few weeks, it's much better having 2 as I can wash 1 and let it dry while I wear the 2nd vest.

Really great results, got me remotivated to go to Seoul, looking up hotels, subway, google streetview! Hopefully sometime next year. Were you able to walk around during this last week? 
After you heal up completely I highly recommend some weight training even 10lbs of muscle can make a big difference.

Nonini, I hope you keep me informed on what you decide to do. I was able to walk around fine the past week. But the summer humidity here mkes it more difficult- the compression vest is constantly wet with sweat.

And I made a big mistake today :( Yesterday I flew to Japan. Today I was in a park and saw that you can rent a rowing boat for 30 mins. So I decided to do that and rowed (gently) for about 20 mins, before realising that I shouldn't be doing any chest exercises. I had to row back in then. So now I'm worried that I shouldn't have done that for 30 mins and that it may affect the healing of my chest :(

You must be healing pretty well to make that mistake haha! It should be fine, especially if you didn't even feel any pain. Also, in the upper body rowing mostly uses back and biceps muscles. The chest is involved directly when you push something, so at least you did not make a mistake doing push ups!:)

Update- Day 8 after surgery
Not sure if I should pick at the glue on my nipples or leave it alone. I never asked the surgeon and the clinic is closed this whole week.

Hey- OP here.

So it's been exactly 2 weeks since my surgery. I have been wearing my compression vest all the time apart from showering. I peeled off the surgical glue and I don't appear to be badly scared, it's not too noticeable. However, what I'm concerned with is that one side is lumpy when viewed from a certain angle or when I lean forward/hunch over. Will this go away in time or will I look this way forever? I feel kind of upset
