Let me preface by stating that this has nothing to do with the topic of gyno. Thus far I have never used AAS.
For my entire life I have had loose skin right in the immediate nipple area. The lowest I have ever cut to is probably to 8% +/- 1% and my nipples looked the same at that as they do at 15+%. I had washboard abs, tight lower chest separation and such, only with the nipples of an obese man. Their default state is just like this, and I have to either be cold, have a pump going on or manually stimulate myself in order to get tight and cool looking nipples. Moreover, when I achieve this, it won't last.
It does not seem to be the kind of thing that cutting to 6% would solve. I also don't think that I can decline bench/fly my way out of this problem as guys at my gym have suggested.
Anyway, it is a huge source of insecurity for me. I feel confident going topless if my nipples are hard, but otherwise it is a constant candid battle I have with them and really is distracting and feels neurotic.
Any non-surgical solutions to this? Chemicals, topical creams, other strategies?
