I am writing this review 6 weeks after getting done the Gynecomastia surgery from this Clinic, by Dr Madhukumar.
I was drawn to this Clinic for my Gynecomastia condition after a little bit of research on Google and on Practo. I went through tons of reviews which were all positive and well descriptive as well. Since those reviews helped me take this decision of not only becoming more sure about the surgery but also for referring me to this Clinic and Doctor, I believe this could help other people who are going through the same condition & thoughts as I was.
On the dot day, I visited the Clinic for the first time, I was given all the information I wanted around the subject and also about my specific case. Throughout the whole process, pre-surgery preparations, during it and post-surgery recovery, whatever information I needed, it was given to me promptly without any confusions.
The doctor and the whole staff at the Clinic is very professional. During all of my visits to the Clinic, it was very visible that each person there is working towards the same goal and that is to treat their patients well.
3. Precautions during Covid
Everytime you visit, you are given a mask replacement and you are asked to gargle with betadine and every possible precaution is followed at this place.
<I am going to add some extra details about the surgery process because it helped me going ahead with the surgery when I could read such details sitting with my laptop at home>
The Doctor with a great precision told me each detail about my case and the results I should expect post the surgery.
My surgery was done under local anaesthesia and went on for close to 2 hours. Throughout it I was awake and was interacting with the doctor and some staff members. They also played music of my choice to calm my nerves and it did help me relax as I was undergoing a surgery for the first time in life. The staff members helped me whenever I spoke of anything whether it was itching or the discomfort you feel because of staying in the same position for long. I didn't feel any kind of intolerable pain. At some point I was under pain, the doctor gave more anaesthesia in the specific area and it went away. Other than that it was sensations of the skin being pulled or stretched which is expected obviously.
Once the surgery was over, after having some food and drink, I was discharged the same day. I was on pain killers for 3 days which helped because once your body comes back from the numbness, you do feel pain or soreness. I was asked to not stress myself physically at all for a week, though I could join work in 3-4 days. Post surgery recovery is to be taken seriously and the Doctor told me exactly the same.
It has been 6 weeks now and I am well recovered to resume daily life activities with some light exercising. In a month, I can resume proper weight lifting too gradually.
<During surgery, the doctor skill-fully performed liposuction and gland removal and I was well informed about every step>
Post the surgery, my results are great and it is exactly what was explained by the Doctor. Every time I visited, the Doctor and I looked at side by side comparison of my pre and post surgery pictures and it is remarkable to see how in a short span of merely 6 weeks, my chest looks better and totally different and without any visible signs of scarring.
I have spent 15+ years with a grade 2 Gyno and it is traumatising. Once I am through this surgery process, it is life altering and still seems unreal at times. The only regret I have is not booking this appointment earlier in life.
If you are too sitting on the verge of a similar decision, please do not hesitate meeting Dr. Madhukumar at his Clinic. I would happily recommend them.
