Just wanted to post my experience so far. Underwent gynecomastia surgery along with auxilla wedge resection on Friday. So far so good. I just had my follow-up today in which my wrap was removed and I was able to get my first look at my post-op results.
A little background. I weighed 330lbs in 2008 and through diet and exercise I've gradually wittled my way down to 210lbs. I decided to have this surgery because ever since adolescence, I've always had big breasts and my weight gain only made things worse. They didn't seem to go down at all with my weight loss. I've had a few consults, some of which were very scary (and included nipple graphs and massive scarring). In addition to the gynecomastia surgery, I've also decided to go with an auxilla wedge resection (side removal). This was primarily due to pain I have on my sides/rib cage that only went away when I'd wear a compression top.
Fastfoward to last week. I had the surgery on Friday. Everything went well and over the weekend I've not experienced much pain or discomfort. Looking at my results today, I'm overall pretty satisfied at the moment, still being swollen. That being said, I'm an emotional mess just looking at everything (there's somewhat of a crease/indent in my lower left breast).
If anyone has any questions or could provide any insight, feel free! I'll provide updates as I progress.
