What is a good excuse for gyno scar?
« on: August 30, 2010, 03:52:10 PM »
I had masectomy? a few years ago (loose skin cut out, free nipple graft) so pretty extensive and a visible scar in addition to a low placed nipple.  I'm worried to go to beach with people I know in event they ask me what are those two huge scars on your chest from.  Is there any excuse I could give as to explain the two scars without saying gyno?  I would rather them not see me at all then tell the truth.

When it comes to mastectomy scars and free nipple grafts, there are not many other things that it may be.  I assume your surgeon reviewed the anticipated scarring prior to your operation.  This is a major operation -- reserved for men in whom there is no other choice.  The surgery (and its resultant scarring) becomes a trade-off for a tighter and more comfortable chest.

Unfortunately, these scars are permanent. 

My best recommendation would be to be truthful about it if anyone should ask.

I find that being totally honest is quite a relief and also easier than you'd think.
