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.
