    Hi guys.

    I'm 19 and I have gynemastia i have had this from puberty since around 13.

    I have lost a lot of weight which meant it's not that noticeable with a black shirt on however with any other colour or without a shirt it is very noticable.

    I have been to the GP and they can't do anything and referred me to a private surgeon. My parents don't approve as they just don't understand how it affects me.

    I can't take my shirt off infront of my girlfriend of 3 years which is saying something.

    I was thinking about getting surgery from a place in Poland called medimel who have great reviews without telling parents.

    Any one got any advice or had this procedure done before? Thanks

    Use the private surgeon recommended by your GP, it will be relatively straight forward. Your weight can fluctuate and judging by the degree of your shame/embarrassment, it's worth getting it done so that you are no longer preoccupied with your condition. You self esteem will lift as soon as it's done.

    Thanks for your reply.

    I did actually go to the surgeon my GP reccomended but his results were no good and he seemed very inexperienced. From what I heard medimel do this type of procedure all the time, what do u think? Plus UK it costs £5,000 where as in Poland its £1,200 plus all the extra experience of the surgeon from what I hear

    I would still ask your (or another) GP about their opinion of the Polish level of medical care. You would also need a follow-up, so that needs to be taken into account. It's probably a huge saving but another professional opinion would be helpful. Don't rely purely on website advertising.

    Thank you for your reply :-) I will do just that!
