Something that's bothering me-need advice.

Something that's bothering me-need advice.

Hi everyone,
I have a question and want some opinions.
I've had fat accumulation on my abdomen (beer belly) and chest (manboobs) for years.
Almost exactly a month ago, I had lipo to my upper and lower abs, love handles, and chest. I can see the difference in my abdomen and flanks, but I'm not seeing a difference in my chest, which was the most concerning area. These manboobs may even be worse now, although it could be in my head.
It may be swelling, but I thought swelling would feel real firm, like hard tissue underneath. My breasts are soft, jiggley, for lack of a better word.
If anyone has experienced anything similar I'd realy like to hear about it. I'm starting to get concerned that the doc didn't remove enough fat from my chest, although I know he was in there because I was bruised slightly.
Should I expect a better result in a the weeks ahead, or does it sound like I may need more work?

My PS warned of me of the same issue if I only had lipo. He said the gland would show more after lipo. Based on that advice I decided to have the gyno surgery and have been quite happy with the result.

Your problem happens alot with a Dr who is not really knowledgeable in gyno surgery. Who did you op and what did he tell you in your consult. Most all gyno ops have a combo of gland and lipo removal.

I myself had to much taken out one side and have to go back and have it filled with fat. Swelling does take time and they say it takes up to 6months to see the final result.

I would consult with your PS in a couple months and let him now how you feel with the results if your not happy. Just give another month a wee what happens otherwise you will think about all day.
