HALLELUJAH! I'm Glad to Look Normal!
« on: November 26, 2005, 11:55:55 AM »
Hey guys--
I am new here, but I wanted to thank all of you that posted threads and stuff here, because by reading some of them it encouraged me to get this surgery done.

I am 18 years old, and I have not taken my shirt off in public since probably 4th grade. I am not fat by any means, I am very athletic and in good muscular shap, but I've always had these puffy, pointy nipples...It comepletely embarrassed me, but I did a good job of hiding it...actually, when I told my parents I wanted to get surgery for it, they were bewildered-they had no idea i had it...

Gynecomastia made me have bad posture in order to hide my puffy nipples, and just about every shirt i own is black. It hindered me from going to swimming events, and I was always thinking of a new excuse as to why I could not go to the beach.  

I am so glad i did some research and found this site, because first off, it let me know that the glandular tissue was something i could not control and that no amount of running was going to get rid of it. Second, it encouraged me to talk to my parents and get the surgery.

I had the surgery a week and two days ago, and I feel so good about myself. Of course, I see now that I have alot of work to do to get my body exactly where I want it, but the surgery drastically changed the way I look, and words cannot express the relief and joy that that brought me.

I am looking forward to finish healing (i still have alot of bruising, but it is going away) and getting my body to where i have always dreamed it could be.

To anyone thinking about getting this surgery, that is scared to tell someone: my advice is DO IT! Tell someone! Telling my parents about this was one of the hardest things I have ever done, but I felt so good after it and they were so good about it.

Thanks once again to all you guys, even though I do not know you, I feel like you all sort of helped me make this decision!

It sounds to me that we are very simular...im very athletic and muscular and i have had to hide my body for many many years now. I dont know anyone who knows about it besides my dad. Ive always had sex with girls in dim light and i dont even think they noticed. I guess i was just that good haha.  No one could understand tho why i would never take my shirt off since it appears that i have a "perfect" body. I just had my surgery today and i cant wait to finally show off myself.

Can you tell us more about it, like your surgery experience, and how you told your parents?

Congrats man.

I'm getting surgery in about 4 weeks. I knew little to nothing about gyne before today. I took off school to go to a consultation, then came home and found this forum. I've learned a lot about the condition, and I'm getting more confident about the surgery.

Hopefully I'll have a success story too.

after hospital, taxes (in certain states), and anesthesiologist's fees it's close to 5k.

Credit card is your friend. I know it's a lot of money but to look normal is priceless in my book.

Contratulations man... I`m getting surgery on tuesday.. i.e. in 5 days from now... i`m very excited about it but also kind of worried... thinking whether it`s gonna work and stuff like that  ???... But fortunately it`s not gonna cost me as much, only 900 bucks, because i`m gonna do it in Bulgaria, where I live now... i was kind of worried about the doctor, but he is pretty well known here so i hope it`s gonna work out well... I`m gonna post a post-surgery story... Good luck to everybody and to me   ;D
