Hi,

My doctor is planning t remove all the fat as -he says- if he doesn't, then it will come back again. I on the other hand am worried about my chest caving in. Did your doctor remove all the fat? Are you happy about the results? What should I do? I have puffy nipples, should I just ask him to not remove all of it but some?

Any help is appreciated,
Thanks

I'm not in USA or UK at the moment, and the surgeon is sort of a friend, and I highly doubt (I mean it!!!) your ability to know him in any way (still possible though!)  :)

Most PS's will leave 'some' tissue behind so as not to leave a concavity...

If you are concerned about this issue, I suggest you look for another PS...

what worries me more is that he sounds like he's talking about lipo only, with no plans for excision. 

i don't remember ever seeing anyone happy with lipo only.  if that's what he's thinking, i don't think he's gyne-expert enough for you.  there will always be residual gland tissue left from lipo, there will be more extensive scarring, etc etc.  my advice is, if that's what he's planning, friend or not, cancel it now and shop around.  at MINIMUM make absolute certain that

1. he HAS done excision cases before (this is a must) and
2. he will leave the option on the table for you. 

if not, my advice is bite the bullet and find a way to pull the plug. 
* 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?

Puffy Nipple Gynecomastia Surgery is an art form, not all doctors have the same skills.

Removing all of the fat can look terrible, especially on animation such as tightening the chest muscles or lifting arms up over the head. Check out this Anatomy of Puffy Nipples. Remove the fat and the gland remains behind distorting the contour. Remove too much fat and you can get a Crater Deformity Complication

If you are questioning your surgeon's techniques, then you may need to investigate a little better just what that doctor's results typically look like. If you have not seen such examples of his / her skills, then you may want to better do your homework.  An experienced gynecomastia surgeon should be able to demonstrate such art and not need a patient to educate on how to sculpt the chest.

Hope this helps,
