    gyno surgery ?

    how quick is the recovery if they are using an excision and lipo and not removing the gland. i will have to wear a vest for about 6 weeks but does it hurt.
    if anyone could let me know what they experience from it.

    i think you are off the weights for a couple of weeks for sure to let everything heal up and then when you start off again go slow caude it will hurt like a bitch there was another thread on here a while back and he had it done and posted pics to search around and you may find it .

    what they are doing is liposuction and a small incision , do you think i should tell him to remove the gland and has anyone ever removed the gland and does it hurt worst. my thing is that i dont want it to reappear a year later and have to have surgery again. my doc told me i have a medium case of gyno. he also told me there is not to much pain in the surgery afterwards and that i have to wear a vest for about 6 weeks.

    a buddy of mine went through the same thing back a few years ago. He was soar for a few weeks. Not to bad where he couldnt do his daily things. I used to mess with him and pretend i was going to poke him in the chest. He had a good recovery and is competing again.

    i know some-one who had it done - glands removed. i don't know if the job was badly done but it left some dimples just under the nipples which were not that great looking...

    ps do you really need to have them removed? i got gyno in one nipple only towards the end of my previous cycle, and it went away by itself entirely after about 6 weeks while off the juice.

    well lipo will just remove the fat in the area, so it may come back. If you remove the gland, not all of it will be removed, it is vertually impossible, so there are chances of coming back. Of course if the "gland" isn't fully developed it will simply be fat, so depending on the severity of the case, one would either extract the gland or just go ahead with lipo. If you developed gyno or psuedo gyno naturally, then you should really go to an endo. doc and run all the hormone checkups. You would really throw away money to have the surgery and for it to come back again because your hormones are out of wack.
    I had both the lipo and the removal of the gland, I can tell you from experience the lipo hurt like a bitch after it was said and done. The gland removal hurt for two or three days because of the incisions under the nip, but not as much as the lipo.

    my doc said i had medium case of gyno and that it wouldnt hurt to bad to lipo it out. he said theres barely any pain and that they give u pain meds. is there anything i should ask him before my surgery, and is the smart thing to do is to remove the gland or not. how long until the pain went away after surgery and was the vest aggravating to wear /

    Well if you plan to cycle I would remove the gland, hell even if you don't cycle I would just ask for it to be removed. There is pain involved atleast there was some concentrated sharp pain that made it impossible for me to go about with daily activities for about 3-4 days. I guess my problem was that as soon as I got home I took off the ****ing vest and just bandaged my chest real tight. I couldn't stand the vest, but most do. Did the doc run the hormonal tests? If not I would talk to him about it, you certaintly don't want to get surgery only to find that gyno came back because of hormonal problems. Find the root and cause of it, then get the surgery, or do both at the same time. Scarring, methods, anesthisia, time the surgery takes, approx. time to heal, and getting a hormonal checkup is the least I would discuss with my doc before heading into surgery. I would also be weary of lipo on a gland, if you have psuedo gyno (just fat) then its pretty normal to lipo. and liposculture your chest. But if the gyno your referring to is the gland I would not like to lipo it out, I would like to have it removed by surgery and then liposculpture the chest. But talk it over with the doc.
