Well i have had gynemcomastia since i was 13. It was puberty onset and only got worse as i lifted and pushed out the glands to make them appear more prevalent.
6 foot, 275lbs @23% body fat
Well today is tuesday may 9th, 2006 and it is currently 6:15pm. Its been roughly 9 hours now since i had bilateral excision for gynecomastia. (if you are looking at a chest from the front, they cut like they are trying to make a V on your chest).
Simple liposuction was not an option do to my tissue being all glandular and having minimal amounts of fat in it. I have had a decent amount of ptosis (sagging) so an aerolar lift and resizing was needed.
I felt like sh!t for the first couple hours, im still not feeling too chipper, but i am a lot better than i would have thought originally. The procedure took just over 2 hours to complete.
My chest is pretty sore, i got a pretty limited range on movement, im just hoping i can whipe my own @$$
They gave me some Tylenol 3's, which contain codeine, so the pain is bearable.
They have a pressure gauze sewed into both of my nipple (kinda looks like window caulking). The pressure gauze was needed because they actually totally removed my nipple and aereola and replaced it in the correct spot.(kinda cool, huh?).
Im wearing a compression jacket, which suck. OH YEA, appetite is not affected. I had a couple good meals since then and I feel fine. Im excited to get to see my pecs after 6 years of building them up. I can only go from up from here on out.
