I'm a 17 year old boy who used to suffer from Gynecomastia...I found out that i had gynecomastia when i was 13 or 14.
At that age, i realised that my chest had a different and abnormal shape and were really fat and soft even though I'm physically fit and not at all overweight, so i knew there was something wrong with me and this wasn't regular fat cause even after working out and doing exercises like push ups and weight-lifts, my chest was not altered...it was still a soft dome shaped structure then i looked up on google and saw the reason the reason for my puffy nipples and enlarged chest ... GYNECOMASTIA...which i had because of a hormonal imbalance during puberty and which could not be treated with exercise or oral pills and needed cosmetic surgery...this scared me as i had never even gotten stitches at a hospital , let alone surgery.
So I spent 3-4 years keeping it to myself, and not telling anybody, gynecomastia really deprives you of the fun in life, i was too scared and shy to go to beaches or take off my shirt and didn't even join any swimming classes because i knew i would be made fun of...so years passed and on my 17th birthday i told my parents, they were very cooperative and understanding as parents always are ...so i told them all about it and how it keeps me depressed and needed surgery...so my family and i looked for a good surgeon near us, and i found DR. RAJAT GUPTA through practo and it showed him having immense experience in this field and that he had already performed a lot of Gynecomastia surgeries, so my mom booked an appointment with him and he physically examined me , confirming that is was gynecomastia and explained me the process of the sugery.
I was confident in my decision and told my parents that he was going to be my surgeon as i wanted to get it done from the best...cause this was my body we were talking about and my family and I didn't want to spare any expense or get it done from a less experienced doctor which could result in a botched up surgery and even worsening the condition.
So on the day of the surgery, i arrived at the centre and was given a room with all the facilities and the nurses were experienced and polite, the surgery was a LIPOSUCTION under general anaesthesia and the best part is that only 1 little incision was made on each side of my chest which will heal up in a month with minimal swelling... Post-op , i was bandaged and placed in my room for the day.
Today it's been a week since the surgery and I am more than happy with the results...The Gynecomastia was completely taken out of my body , giving my chest a great shape and i have been wearing a compression garment which will help reduce the swelling and the loose skin. I have already started wearing thin t shirts and my friends don't notice anything wrong with my chest now, i feel a lot more confident and happy, cause Gynecomastia wasn't just some extra gland under my chest..but one of the most psychologically painful experience no boy or man should ever experience.
*** ***** ** ***** ** ** ** **** ******** ** **** ***** *** I'm very happy to have my gynecomastia treated from him , as more than the surgery , he understood what i was psychologically suffering from and how gynecomastia affected my teenage life and comforted every step along the way.
