Pre-Surgery Requirements

This maybe the first time you are planning to undergo surgery. It's natural to feel little anxious about the whole process.

You can take heart from the fact that Gynecomastia surgery is very commonly performed in India.

To know the relevant details and to gain confidence, it is important that you communicate well with your surgeon. You should feel comfortable in your interactions with your treating surgeon and make sure that he/she will be available for post operative care.

  • Ideally you should meet up with your surgeon well before the male breast surgery.
  • If you have any medical problems or allergy you should inform your surgeon.
  • Smoking should be stopped 2 weeks before Gynecomastia surgery.
  • Blood tests should be done a week before the surgery.
  • Measurements for the custom made corset should be provided at least 5 days before surgery.
  • Ideally, someone should accompany you for the Gynecomastia surgery.
  • Plan the surgery when you do not have a very hectic work schedule.

Please feel free to contact Dr. Hari Menon with all relevant details to know more about the surgical plan, timings and post op care. 

The surgery is performed in Cochin, India where you should plan on spending a couple of nights at least.
