So it is my 9 month anniversary of top surgery and I thought I’d show photos since I hadn’t for a while. But I’m putting them behind a cut, because I also think this blog has hopefully moved away from just a place where I post photos of myself :)
Oh I simply meant that you couldn’t go into surgery thinking that for sure yr scars would be completely hidden. I am well aware of how scars fade and/or become hidden, sometimes very soon after surgery.
It just isn’t good to go in thinking that that kind of result of 100% certain.
And I’m just curious as to what part of the surgical results will be better. Is it just that you have a “nicer looking chest”? And if so, isn’t that something that could be achieved by gaining pecs after the surgery? Is it that it helps with contouring? And again, is that not something that could change after surgery too? Or is it just what the previous person suggested, that it helps the surgeons?
Aha, thank you for the info
I’ve heard this, too. And I’m never sure exactly what people means. Is yr chest going to look different if you have well developed pecs? Obviously. Does that make the actual surgical results better? I don’t think so.
Pectoral muscles do help to hide the scars of DI from the get-go because of the indentations and shadows and such. I wouldn’t count on them hiding the scars “completely” (they very well could and the scars will fade, but you just can’t be certain of yr personal results) but that is something I know for sure they make a difference in.
And I myself am not super in-shape, nor an expert on muscle gain, but I have some friends that are and they recommended Scooby’s workout program. He talks about nutrition and exercises (which you can do easily from home) - and he doesn’t make you buy anything and even talks about nutrition on a budget, etc. etc. I’ve seen my friends’ bodies completely transform through this (being on T helps but isn’t necessary) and I honestly do plan on doing a less intense version of his program.

I had a number of small cists which had never been biopsied, but that I had kept “monitored” for years. (i.e. my physician knew they were there, and I was just to make sure nothing changed). Most of the surgery is not done with liposuction (unless you have a keyhole procedure), so it doesn’t matter if yr tissue is a little cistic.
If you have really small breasts (like A cup or smaller), you have the option of peri-areolar or keyhole surgery.
But everybody is eligible for Double Incision. There is more liposuction done with a larger chest, and obviously more excess skin removed, but skilled and experienced surgeons know what they are doing. I have a friend who was pretty large-chested and binded for years - he went to Dr. Garramone and apparently his results are amazing.
transbucket.com has post-op results and sometimes in the information, guys say what size they were prior to surgery.
