I recommend the doctor
Happy with: Doctor friendliness
Gynecomastia is a really important issue for people like me who suffer from it. It really lowers my self-esteem and makes life a little depressing. Having got the surgery from Dr Sreekar, it has changed my life. Let me take you step by step of what happened including the pros and cons.
1st Consultation: I met three doctors to be frank in Bangalore for gynecomastia surgery. I checked their reviews and websites before deciding. The doctors were all genuine but I found Dr Sreekar the most easy to talk to and approachable. He did not show some superiority complex that many doctors sometimes show to patients.
2nd consultation: Though I had read a lot about the surgery and seen videos and met doctors, I met Dr Sreekar again after a few weeks to clarify more doubts. In the meantime he had responded to a few of my queries on whatsapp which was convenient. During the second consultation he examined me again and we went through the whole process again.
Blood tests the next day: My blood tests I got done in a lab near my house in Koramangala. I sent the reports to him and WhatsApp and he said they were fine. he also asked me to stop smoking for the healing to be better. I checked the available dates and opted for one. I had to transfer some advance to the clinic account for confirmation and it was confirmed.
Before the day of surgery: On the previous day of surgery, Dr Sreekar sent me whatsapp message about the pre-surgery guidelines. They were clear and helped me plan better. I got my cousin along as a bystander for the procedure.
On the day of surgery. I was supposed to on empty stomach and I came to clinic by around 8:30am. The staff made me read and fill some forms. Then they inserted an injection line in my left hand and gave some injections. Dr Sreekar then came and did some markings on my chest and again we discussed about some doubts that I had. He marked the gland and fat areas and showed where the cut would be made. Then the anaesthetist came and spoke to me and I was taken to the operating room. There again I was given injections and I slept off. I woke up and was drowsy and had a dressing on my chest. Dr Sreekar’s staff and my cousin were speaking to me. There was no pain as such but was a little sleepy. Then in an hour I recovered and was making some timepass. I was given a juice and made to walk around 4pm. Dr Sreekar check on me thrice in the meantime. Then they gave a discharge summary and bill. I cleared the bill. Before leaving Dr Sreekar explained to me the medications and instruction and dos and fonts after the surgery. Then I left in a cab and my check up was scheduled after two days.
Next day after surgery: I was up and able to do all my routine things. The pressure garment guy came and took measurements for my chest and said he will keep the garment ready on the next day. I was on medications as per instructions.
Check up visit: I came to the clinic after two days. They removed the dressing and my chest was noticeably different. i was looking much better. Dr Sreekar examined me and showed me how to do massage and dressing and take care on my own. There is a flow chart in the discharge summary that is very helpful. its very clear. Then he explained about the pressure garment and other things. Then I went home, took a bath and wore the garment. There was slight bruising on the left side. It went away in a week.
Recovery: I started massaging from the check up date and went to gym after three weeks as I was told. The chest looks really good now and the shape is amazing. I like wearing proper fitting T-shirts and it looks good. Only I know how much this made a difference to my life.
In conclusion what I want to say is that gynecomastia is so easily treated with good recovery. I have no hesitation in saying that Dr Sreekar is genuine and good at what he does. You can trust him blindly.
