Life after Having Gynecomastia Surgery Male: So I will put you in a garment today and take out your stitches and probably I will see from a couple weeks, you know. Male: And that next appointment is just began just to keep track of it. Male: Look at how you're healing and all things are coming around, if the appointment gets fewer and fewer. Unfortunately, I miss you guys. Male: Oh in the terms of the many path pretty much used up to medication, the antibiotics that I don’t refill or anything on medication sides? Male: No, you're getting beyond the curve now. Oh, as far as good. Male: So, I’ll just take soaking up? Male: Yeah, let it reap man. Male: This is the last time I'm taking this sucker off. Male: Maybe. It’s like opening up a Christmas package. Male: Yeah, that looks great man. Male: Yeah? Male: I mean the flatness was definitely huge off. Male: It looks pretty good but its great man. Let takes some stitches out first. Male: What is it? Male: Iodine the discoloration— Male: No, that’s just the bruising, it just stimulating. Male: You want to be extra careful. Male: Yeah. Male: So when I'm in the shower I'm like barely touching it and kind of you know, still kind of shy about it. Male: That’s okay now. I think that’s okay, it’s all right. The problem when you get flat chest it makes this look good. Male: I’ll work on that, trust me with that. Male: The other thing, there isn’t this stigma of a guy than with a girl. Male: You hear all the time. Male: Actually, that’s not anything you know, people—men will have as much problem as a – Male: For the degree of gynecomastia that you had had you're going to look great. There's again two weeks would go start talking about the scar management and that type of thing. There are some things we use that I think you should just start them. Male: Okay, so it looks good huh? Male: Excellent. Thank you doctor. Male: Excellent. Male: Thank you very much. Male: I feel that quite of bit a relief. It gave me some relief to know that the doctors look at the progress and it feels that it’s a coming along very nicely and I would say, you know, that was a big step. The first time the doctor seen it after taking out the blobs and yeah, I walk out of here anymore comfortable than I did walked in here. Male: I feel good. It has been a little over six months since the surgery and I would say from month three on, I really felt that I was coming back to normal and the further away from the surgery, the more I feel that I'm more back to normal. It’s like it feels like it’s been years since the surgery. In terms of marks and you know, from the blind eyes I’m looking at I have no idea that a surgery took place, so. Male: Tell us about the surgery, experience and all. Male: Well, you know, the anticipation of the surgery is by far the worst part of it, kind of came to no pain. The nurse was right there. Actually, she said I was making a few jokes right away and so I felt that I felt pretty good at that point on.
