Gynecomastia Talk / Gynecomastia Rating & CT Scan
« Last post by Alle.n on Today at 06:32:44 PM »

I am brand new to this forum.

I have been dealing with male breast tissue for over 2 decades but recently about a year ago my chest started growing more even though I wasn't gaining weight or losing muscle mass.

I am trying weightloss from exercise but after losing 24 lbs I lost almost 2 inches around my waist and 1 inches at underbust but zero reduction in my bust.

I also recently had a CT scan prior to starting to get healthy and was for the first time officially diagnosed with gynecomastia. The scans showed that under chest fat that I had dense breast tissue of about 270 cc bilaterally. This is not the whole breast but just the tissue. My whole breasts might be 400cc, 500 cc or even 600cc each, I don't know. I've looked at charts online after measuring myself but they confuse me. 

I currently measure 46 inches at my bust and 43 inches underbust. Some charts list this as a C cup while others say as small as AA. All I know is that my wife encouraged me to wear a bra and the most comfortable one is a 40 B. An "A" feels to small. 

I am 5 foot 11 inches. And I weigh 290 lbs. A healthy weight for me is 230 lbs. I am now on an exercise routine and losing about 1.25 pounds per week. I hope to reach my goal in 12 months.

My concern/curiosity is what I might expect with more weight loss. It seems that as I lose weight I am still maintaining relative cup size or even proportionally gaining in cup size since weightloss doesn't get rid of breast tissue 

Assuming I lost weight evenly it seems that losing an inch off of my waist while losing an inch off of my chest would leave my cup size the the same but only decrease band size. Not sure how I feel about this.

I currently have about 3/4 of an inch of fat (maybe a little more) around my band line or underbust. If I lost most of this fat layer my 43 inch rib circumference could go down to 39 inches. At the same time if my bust went down 4 inches, I'd still have a 42 inch bust.

My problem is that no one has been able to rate my gynecomastia or give me a range if what to expect with weight loss. 

I have only been told to go to a plastic surgeon even though my wife and I are currently deciding not to follow through with this. 

But no can help me understand it. People just like to tell me what to do but almost no one seems very informed about rating of gynecomastia with a CT Scan or in what this might look like with managing weight loss.

My wife has asked me if mine will get bigger than her's at the rate they are growing. She is bigger than DD (maybe an E) and this will never happen but it's funny to think of her not having a problem until being passed up. 

Oddly enough though her bustline circumference is identical to mine at 46 inches. The difference us that her ribs or underbust is 39 inches while mine is 43.

For smaller boobs, a plaid shirt with patch pockets works wonders. I have used them for years going from 44b to 46G/H and although they do [not?] hide the view from the side very much, they absolutely do wonders for the front view. I have found if you carry a pen in one pocket with a small note-pad and fold in half some dollar bills or larger denominations and place them in the other pocket, they will break up the outline of your "twins" and sort of neutralize them. besides, us guys are not expecting to see boobs on a guy so we go tunnel vision and do not see them even when they are there. Those of us who have them cannot help but notice other guys with "assets" since we are all in the same boat together.
Has anyone here tried starching a shirt to make it stiffer so the lines and bulges show less (or not at all)?  (I'll have to look up how that's done.  I seem to remember my mom starching shirt collars and cuffs and things when I was a kid.  I think she sprayed water with starch in it at the clothes when she was ironing them.)
There haven't been any responses, so I tried it myself.  I bought eBay item number 184078942168.  It took about three weeks to arrive from India, but that's less than a third as long at it took to receive some pine-tar soap from the middle east recently.  It was quite inexpensive.  Anyway, from my initial test, it looks promising.  Unless I bend over in a way that stretches the shirt across by back, the bra lines absolutely do not show through a shirt with a pattern, even without an undershirt.

I'm considering surgery with Nurein. I had my consultation with him and he said I will only need gland excision (some lipo for shaping but nothing major, I wouldn't be charged extra for it). The main thing putting me off doing it is worrying the scars around my nips will end up looking worse/more obvious than the Gyno.

Can anyone who had surgery with Nurein chime in and let us now how your scars are healing? Are they obvious? Do you think he did a good job keeping them neat and relatively hidden? Thanks.

I own 2 laces bras and I like them.   My wife doesn’t mind that I wear lace, as long as it’s comfortable.   It feels nice to my skin and it makes me feel good.

I do like underwire.    They do make my breasts pretty perky, but I feel comfortable wearing them.   The non wire cotton bras I have fit and feel good too.

I have tried a many different brands of bras over the last 10 years and I find that the brand doesn't matter it is the fit that does.  If your favorite brand one day doesn't fit try another.  I was at the CARDIOLOGIST today so I didn't wear a bra but since the appointment was late in the day the girls were getting sore and I wanted to go to my favorite store anyway I looked at their discounted bras and found my size in a color I had never seen before (purple) I tried it on and wore it out of the store and still have it on,  After reading some of the latest post I took it of and looked for the name.  It was a brand I have never heard of before but it fits great. So to me the brand doesn't mean everything, the fit does.
It is now 2 months post surgery and I don't know what to say other than I am very disappointed with my results. I feel as it's the same as before I had surgery. Maybe it will get better I really don't know. I feel even worse now having gone through this and everything seems the same. It will not let me post any pictures but I'll keep trying

Aren't underwire bras the best? I wear them exclusively! I get better shape and support.

I only felt that I was accepted as a full busted man after I accepted it. I used to try and camouflage my bras. It was only after I accepted them as me.
