The GSC Approach

We achieve a high degree of patient satisfaction because we pay attention to detail.  You will have an in-depth consultation with your surgeon, which starts with a discussion to understand your goals.  In this way, the procedure is properly tailored to your needs.  Your medical history will be reviewed, and an ultrasound scan will provide the complete picture of the muscle, fat, and gland tissue layers situated beneath the skin.  This precise medical detail allows the surgeon to establish an accurate surgical plan.  Before and after photos of past patients with similar grades of gynecomastia will help you visualise the results of surgery for your case.  The consultation takes approximately one hour.

If you decide that surgery is right for you, a few additional medical tests will be carried to ensure your safety during the procedure.  Your anaesthetist will ensure your comfort, and our two theatre nurses will assist.

Over the ensuing weeks after surgery, several follow up visits are scheduled to monitor the healing process.  The nursing staff will check for any signs of wound infection, make adjustments to your compression garment, and provide treatments to help minimise scarring and reduce swelling.

 

My condition was a source of constant embarrassment, and after seeing several practices, Dr. Alex was the only one in which I felt a genuine sympathy and understanding of my condition. I’m very happy to have chosen this clinic, as my aim of a flat chest has been achieved, and the staff were extremely helpful, and I can’t thank them enough for the kindness they all showed me. My recovery was monitored very closely, and I felt that my wellbeing was a genuine concern to them.
