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.
4. The Surgery
<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.
I was suffering from hair loss for the last 10 years. I had visited a couple of doctors in the past for remedy, but none of the treatments yielded proper results. By the end of 2019, I had lost a significant amount of hair. This is when I started searching for a specialist and came across Dr. Madhukumar. Through many sources, * ****** **** **** *** ** *** **** ******** ******** ** ********** The reason why I chose to consult him over others is not just because of the amount of positive reviews and ratings that he’d garnered over these years, but also the kind of approachability, comfort and satisfaction level that the patients had expressed in their success stories.
I consulted Dr. Madhukumar for the first time during December 2019. He is courteous and the kind of doctor who listens to and understands the problem his patients really well. He explains the situation as is, clearly, does not beat around the bush and suggests practical solutions. In my case, the doctor told me that it was too late for hair re-growth treatment as I’d lost a lot of hair and hair transplant surgery was the only option. I knew this was true because none of the hair re-growth treatments that I’d undergone in the past had worked for me. He explained the whole process very clearly in my first visit and also told me what to expect in terms of the result. I thought about this over a few days and finally decided to go ahead with the surgery.
My surgery was fixed in January, and it was a combination of FUE and FUT, to get the maximum coverage on top of the head. So, the surgery had to be carried out on two alternate days to complete. The doctor was really helpful in scheduling the dates as per my convenience. Both pre- and post-surgical instructions were conveyed beforehand and the whole process went really smooth. The surgery was conducted successfully and I had to follow the post-surgery care for the next 6 months. I did not face any side effects. The doctor scheduled regular checkups and the best part is that he was available at anytime for queries or concerns on WhatsApp. I was also advised to undergo laser therapy sessions to help keep and strengthen the old hair on my scalp, which worked.
It has been 8 months since my surgery now, and the result has been quite phenomenal. It has been exactly like what the doctor had told me in the beginning. As expected, there is a nice coverage of hair on the head and I’m really satisfied with the result.
To conclude my review, I would say that I highly recommend Dr. Madhukumar to anyone with hair loss issue.
I started loosing hair few years ago. Every few months the hair density was becoming more thinner and less. I was really worried about the future. So I started researching on how to prevent hair loss, how to naturally grow your hair, how to stop hair fall, etc. Over last few years I have gone through many consultant and took suggestion from various doctors. But none of them fixed my hair loss.
Visited different hair transplant center and took their suggestion. Eventually after 3 years of research I have collected all possible information on hair transplant.
I also visited the Midas Cosmetic Surgery Clinic and inquired with Dr Madhukumar and took his suggestion. He was very kind enough and explained me about the hair loss, how to prevent, what are the possibilities of hair transplant and all other useful information. I came back and started mail chain with doctors and almost finalized my plan on hair transplants and hair transplant cost.
But in parallel I was still looking for some better option. Again, I did all research, visited a couple more center, had on call consultation with many other doctors. Perhaps after 1 + years I came back to Dr Madhukumar and this time when I visited I fixed my appointment with him. Because till this time I realized that Midas Clinic is what I was looking for these years.
Dr Madhukumar explained me the process and gave few medicines to take and come on the day. Well, I reached to hospital 6:30 AM morning alone. And the process starts with trimming of hair, few photo session, Blood sample collection. After 1 hour Dr started extraction of hair from back side. It took around 5 hours to extract the 2500 follicles.
Had lunch break for 30 mins. And post lunch Dr started the transplant process on front side. Again, it took around 5 hours to complete the process. Believe me the whole process was hassle free, painless and comfortable. Dr himself does all the process. He does have a complete setup and experienced team member. But still he does all small things himself. Now just imagine where you will get this attention from any experienced doctor. Many place doctor's junior teams will do most of the process.
After completion of all process I went home alone and took 3 days rest. No serious issue in those 3 days, however, I had itching issue (thats normal) and Dr suggested me to take cetrizen and that worked. After 4-5 days I removed the dressing from backside myself only. Visited doctor clinic after 2 weeks and Dr confirmed the entire process looks good. But still I was careful, no helmet, no stress, no physical work for 2-3 weeks. After 2 weeks you can start washing the hair with medicated shampoo.
Did quarterly follow up with the doctor and every time the results were improving. Its been 1 year now and my 90% of the hair have been grown perfectly. I am extremely happy with the results, consultation and doctors feedback.
I STRONGLY SUGGEST EVERYONE ELSE WHO IS LOOKING FOR HAIR TRANSPLANT TO GO TO MIDAS Clinic. I HAVE DONE LOT OF RESEARCH AND NOW YOU DON'T INVEST YOUR TIME IN RESEARCH AND WITHOUT HESITATION YOU SHOULD GO HERE.
Thank You Dr Madhukumar !!
i had the problem of pubertal persisting gynacomastia since when i was in 8th standard (2003, when i was 15 years of age) but i always thought that it was due to my unhealthy dietary habits. it kept on getting embarrassing till it reached untolerable levels when my friends and peers used to mention it each and everytime. That's when i decided to join the gym (2014 october) and start working out. after eight months of heavy sternous workout, other parts of my body got toned and into shape except my chest where it looked even more prominent as the chest muscles had grown from the exercises, and it pushed the fat more outside.
then i read about it on the internet that i was a case of pubertal persisting gynacomastia and my only option is surgical excision of it. i took opinion from two other plastic surgeons in chennai, where i'm currently working but was little apprehensive.
One of my Dad's friends advised and referred me to Dr.Madhu Kumar sir in bangalore. By this time i had made up my mind to undergo the surgery. as i was busy i couldnot meet him for consultation in person. we had a breif discussion over the phone and i sent my ppictures through the popular messaging system "Whatsapp".
Dr.Madhu Kumar was very kind and compassionate and he communicated well inspite of his busy work schedule, to clear all my doubts and apprehensions about the condition ad the surgery, no matter how many times i pestered him. (beleve me i'm very demanding to say the least!) thats when i decided to get the surgery done by him, he sent me the investigation lists to be carried out before the actual surgery which i got it doe in chennai only, and appointment was fixed online.
we met in person for the first time at his MIDAS cosmetic clinic in bangalore on time. he just had a look at my condition and he explained the condition surgery steps, terms and consequences very well with illustrations to me and my father who had come along with me. we signed the consent form and got ready for the surgery. the support staff were very courteous and took care of me very well. the clinicas such was maintained in very high standard and looked ultra modern. the OT attatched was clean and very well maintained, with special attention to maintain strict sterile environment. te anaesthesist and other support staff were very professional in their approach and never made me feel embarassed and took very good care of me.
the surgery (liposuction) was done under local anaesthesia and lasted about one and half hours. during the surgery i didnot feel even an ounce of pain even though being a very anxious and apprehensive patient. i'm really thankful to Dr.Madhu Kumar especially in this aspect.
after the surgery i just had a look at my chest before the compression dressing applictaion and the difference was staggering. i was given a pair of compression dress/pads to wear for atleast six weeks. i had a dressing change and review the next day. i had one course of antibiotics and analgesics for five days post op. minimal pain and tenderness was there at the operated site for two weeks post op, which is very common for all types of surgeries regardless.
its been five weeks now, and i'm astonished at the results. my chest look absolutely toned, in shape, the underlying muscle cuts now evident from my workouts, overall, i;m really really happy with the results of my surgery and i wholeheartedly thank Dr.Madhu Kumar and his wonderful team at MIDAS Cosmetic clinic, for restoring my self confidence and 'man'liness . Thanks a lot sir. Now i have the confidence to walk bare chested. even my friends and peers are astonished at the results. thank you.
I am a 27 year old male who had been suffering from gynecomastia for over 13 years. The condition had significantly reduced my self confidence and affected my mental well being for a very long time. I also had to refrain from a lot of activities that I loved doing because of it. Soon, it got to a point where the stress was too much to handle and I finally mustered up the courage to find a way to get rid of this problem once and for all.
I did a thorough research on the Internet to find the right surgeon to help me with this issue. I came across Dr. Madhukumar's clinic on google and was immediately captivated by the good reviews. I furthered my research on him through various sources on the Internet and found out that he had impeccable credentials and over a decade of experience. His clinic's website also had 'before and after pictures' of some of his previous gynecomastia cases. These pictures were a testament to his aesthetic prowess and the attention to detail when it comes to contouring and achieving good results.
I proceeded to email Dr. Madhukumar with a whole list of queries and concerns. He was quick to respond and was very professional in his approach. When I finally met him at the clinic for my initial consultation, he made me feel very comfortable and explained every bit of the procedure in detail with diagrams. He was calm, composed and helped me get over some of my fears concerning the procedure.
The surgery was done under local anaesthesia. I was awake during the whole time. There was little to no pain during the entire procedure and it was a lot more comfortable than what I had anticipated. He kept talking to me through out the surgery and made sure I was comfortable. The whole team including the anaesthetist and the nurses took care of me really well and ensured my comfort at all times.
Now, it's been over 4 weeks since my procedure and my results are looking good. I feel grateful to have found the right doctor and the right clinic. This has really altered my lifestyle. I feel more confident now and soon I will be able to resume all those activities I had given up for over 13 years because of this condition.
If you are suffering from gynecomastia, think no further - get it fixed at the earliest. I highly recommend Dr. Madhukumar. He understands the emotional trauma that someone with this condition goes through. he has the empathy and compassion to put you at ease and has the backing of his impeccable experience and credentials to help you solve this problem for good.
i had lived with grade 2 gyno issues for over 17 years and the condition had a ,major affect on every aspect of my teenage and adult life. When i finally decided to have the surgery to have it removed i looked up doctors and clinics in bengaluru who performed the surgery and i finally landed on Midas Cosmetic Surgery Clinic , booked a consultation appointment .
the consultation by Dr Madhukumar was very detailed ,informative ,His detailed explanation on the procedure/surgery took away any concerns i had regarding the surgery since i had never gone under the knife before and the Doctor was very assuring .I had waited close to 2 decades to get rid of my condition and after finding someone like Dr madhukumar i couldn't wait any longer. I had the surgery booked for the very next week.
The surgery itself was entirely painless and the doctor painstakingly made sure that minimal number of incisions were done ,even if it meant it made the DR's job more complicated
A day after the surgery i could see absolutely no bruising or discoloration. The post surgery pain was negligible
^ weeks after the surgery the results are literally life changing .the tiny scars on the areola are almost non existent and hardly visible. Its as if the gyno condition never existed but its obviously the job of an absolute master of his craft and its the attention to detail and his understanding of the psychological burden these sort of conditions have on men. Him going the extra mile to make sure that i had very minimal post op scarring ,and meticulous post op care and follow ups its things like that really puts Dr madhukumar and the MIDAS Cosmetic Surgery Clinic above anyone else offering the same treatment .
Any men out there who are suffering from a similar condition ,If you are considering undergoing surgery i absolutely recommend Dr MADHUKUMAR and the Midas Cosmetic Surgery Clinic . You will be in safe ,experienced hands.
Thank you doctor
I am writing this message after 50 days of my gynecomastia surgery. I am very happy with the results and the short recovery time.I have had gynecomastia from early teens, but it took me a long time till i am 37 yrs old to do the surgery. It is life changing and I should have done this much much earlier in my life.I had visited Dr Madhukumar in 2016 and wanted to do the surgery back then. But for my own reasons, it took 4 more years to be confident to do the surgery.May be everything in life has to happen, when the time is right.I visited Midas clinic again on 21st Nov 2020, during covid situation. The clinic has taken all the precautions needed to handle the new normal and I felt very safe.Doctor has explained the procedures in detail and have asked me to take few tests prior to the surgery. Once the test results were all Ok, my surgery was scheduled on 28th Nov 2020.On the day of the surgery I have reached the clinic 8am and by 12:30 pm the entire procedure was done and I could return back to home.The surgery was done in local anesthesia and was done with very minimal pain.After 2 days the bandages were removed and since the stitches were self absorbing one, there was no necessity for stich removal. Second day itself my results were very satisfactorily, no visible scars.I was advised to wear compression vest for 6 weeks, which was not any in convenience. Since it was winter, it was comfortable for me to wear the vest.I had follow-up checkups after 1st week, 3rd week and 6th week.Now I dont wear a vest, I can do all physical activities comfortably, also ride motorcycles.Today I am totally happy with the results.Dr Madhukumar is an expert and can trust him for his expertise in gynecomastia surgery.Without a second thought I will recommend Dr. Madhukumar for gynecomastia treatment for anyone.Thank you Dr Madhukumar, you definitely have changed my life :)
Hi, I am 26 year old suffering from hair loss. I had lost a significant portion of the hair and was looking old at a very young age. So something definitely needed to be done about it.
For few people when they lose their hair it's still okay for them. They still look handsome like Dwayne Johnson may be because of their personality. But a majority of people feel depressed about it. They always feel wish they had more hair. And I was one of those.
So when I researched about it, there were two options available. And hair transplant was the only natural solution. So I decided to go with it.
The first hair transplant I got from another doctor and results were okay but not satisfactory. Then I met Dr Madhukumar. He is an excellent doctor. The best thing about him is he explains the patient very well about the entire process. You can sit with him and ask questions about all your fears and apprehensions till they get resolved. These kinds of interactions are rarity especially in Bangalore who rarely talk to the patient more than 5 mins. I was very well explained how many grafts will be put what I can expect out of the result.
And then I got the surgery done. The clinic is well maintained and after the surgery also was very well guided. Now its 9 months after surgery. I am definitely looking much much better. Hair has grown very well. I am much satisfied. Definitely have become more confident.
Most of the people are scared about Hair Transplant. Guys its a very normal surgery and you can go to work after two days itself. The surgery is of as little pain as possible. You will hear songs while the surgery is going on. If your confidence is down because of hair loss, I would recommend Dr. Madhukumar.
My Sincere thanks to him.
Two months back, In Aug16 I got surgery done for Gynecomastia (male boobs) by Dr.Madhu Kumar, Bangalore. Initially, I though let me consult 2-3 Drs & then decide where to go, firstly I met Dr.MK & after talking to him for several minutes I was convinced. The Doctor is too good. He has explained about the procedure of pre & post surgery in detail. One good thing about Dr is before you asking any doubts, he will clarify all your doubts. He is very polite & professional.
The same day I gave my blood samples for general checkups. The report came next day which was normal & I fixed an appointed in the same week for surgery. The surgery was done for 1hour 30 min. The staff were very courteous. Post surgery it is painless, mean very minimal pain, which anybody can bear it. The scar near the nipple is hardly visible now (which is great). And post surgery atleast for 4-6 days you should be in full rest with minimal movement of hands & upper body. But i had to go to work on 3rd day because of work load, since I work in computers somehow I managed. I sincerely thank Dr. Madhu Kumar for everything.
Guys, if you are suffering from the similar problem, please go & get the correction done, it is very simple. I was wondering why I suffered for somany years, when the solution is so simple. It is embarrassing & mental agony. Especially when you go out with friends & relatives for a trip, & everybody takes out their shirts for bath & just imagine our position with male boobs. So please don’t delay, go to any good doctor & get rid of this problem. But, I personally recommend Dr. Madhukumar based on my experience with him.
A big thank you for everything.

Dr. Madhukumar and the Team my hearty thanks for giving me a new life.
“It feels like a rebirth after undergoing my gynaecomastia surgery on the 27th Jan 2016 and it just feels wow! “
Well to start with as compared to others I faced the similar issue (gynaecomastia) since my school days, which had really made me lose my self esteem and I always felt why am I not normal, why don't I have a similar body as god has created other's. This made me really disheartened; I made a lot of sacrifices due to which I could not enjoy during my college days since I could not go bare chested anywhere. I know how badly it hurts and how it shattered my self confidence. After going through a lot of articles in the internet, trying all other means to reduce the chest fat for e.g. Yoga, Jogging etc nothing really worked which made me really feel lost.
Somehow I gained confidence since I never wanted to give up I just wanted to get rid of gynaecomastia I started browsing and just came up with this wonderful website midascosmetic.com, I checked the doctor’s profile and never gave a second thought hence, fixed and appointment and met this wonderful person Dr Madhukumar
The doctor explained all the process really well and made me feel comfortable regarding the surgery. I fixed an appointment and just followed the doctor's instruction regarding the preoperative procedure.
On the day of surgery I was quite nervous, but the doctor and all the staff members were so co-operative that you feel as if you are being taken care with utmost safety and care. The doctor played some cool music while I was being operated and I did not even feel how 2 hrs went and how my body was getting transformed to complete look. Just after the surgery a minor discomfort in movements but the joy to see yourself was nothing less than how a child gets
his new toy. I was extremely happy with the all the effort by Dr Madhukumar and all his supportive staffs for giving me a new life and giving me the confidence to face this world.
If you suffer from the similar problem just don’t give a second thought, have a conversation with Dr Madhukumar and discover a complete new person in you.
