Huge improvement, and your gyno wasn't too bad to begin with.

rotunate to not have an gyn but two close friends, one lifts one doesn't have moderate cases, actually one mild one moderate, e.g. moderate/severe visible w/ a t-shirt on if it's tight.

anyway, while eating i watched this...stupid but good insight, likely covered already. it's from another site but my hope is that T-Nation sees the greater good, if they take it down go to dave palumbo's site to find it.

"Hi guys, I've had a previous gyno surgery last May in 2010. Surgery went well and there are no visible scars at all. I've been able to lift without any problems. However, I've noticed regrowth of tissue on the right side. I'm don't take any steroids or anything of that sort. Right now, the left and right are asymmetrical, and you cannot make out the outline of the pectoral muscle on the right side (which is visible on the left). I went back to my plastic surgeon and he said it would be $2.3k for another surgery to take out the regrowth. Thing is, I've heard of people getting surgeries covered by their insurance, and if there was any regrowth, that was covered as well. Anyone have any issues in this regard similar to mine? I was under the assumption that since I paid 4.3k for the first surgery, having it corrected again would be free, but the surgeon argued since its regrowth of tissue instead of an error or a result of the previous surgery, it would be taken as a whole new surgery in itself.

In response to the above, yes, regrowth can happen if all of the tissue was not removed. That is why the best long term result involves LIPOSUCTION and excision, not just excision. If someone uses steroids, there is a possibility of regrowth as well.

Hey X, maybe you can clear this up for me.

I've always seemed to have slightly puffy nipples, at least as long as I can remember. I feel no sensitivity other than occasionally a tingle here or there but no pain or anything. When I pinch the nipple area I don't feel any real lump and when its cold/contracted it looks normal. But when its warm it really looks like gyno to me, very much like this guys http://www.cosmetic-md.com/...es/patient-524/ especially in the 3rd pic.

I was more and more self conscious about it this fall, then wasn't so much anymore and now that I think about it I think its because it was winter so generally it was cold/contracted or I was wearing more layers. Now that its hot again it looks as bad as ever but again no lumps or sensitivity. I've seen my school nurse, general doc and 2 endocrinologists (not for this, but I asked while I was there) and they all tell me they don't think its gyno and don't feel breast tissue. But like I said mine looks just like that guys and apparently he had glandular tissue removed.

Any thoughts?

It doesn't sound like gyno. You just have nipples larger than average. That can be corrected with what is called an areoloplasty. It is usually a cheaper procedure than gyno-removal and recovery is shorter.
