Self esteem was the biggest factor pushing me to get this surgery
“Around 3 years ago I felt a lump in my breast and it got bigger and bigger, I went to my GP about it and he confirmed I had Gynaecomastia (I never knew there was such a thing) and suggested speaking to a surgeon about Male Breast Reduction surgery.
The cost was much higher than I thought in Australia (over $10,000!), so I went home and began looking into surgery in Thailand and came across CosMediTour.
As a guy its pretty hard to have this surgery as the teasing would be relentless if you told your mates you are having cosmetic surgery to your man boobs, so it’s a total secret but so far have I been at the beach with my mates and no one has noticed my scars or mentioned anything.
Self esteem was the biggest factor pushing me to get this surgery – I would never take my shirt off at the beach and avoided those situations entirely, and especially around girls with my shirt off etc.
Pain wise was pretty good the first week was actually ok, hard as a guy not to take your shirt off and wearing the patches (no bandages or anything just bandages to protect the wounds) I was really worried people would notice.
I went under General Anaesthetic – waking up I had no pain, just wanted to look at them but couldn’t, just swollen and I had drains the first night.
While in Phuket I went walking around lots, was just conscious of ripping the stitches so was careful with my arm movements. Phuket International Hospital was very good, just like a normal hospital. The CosMediTour support staff were really nice and very helpful since I changed plans and my flights to come home early.”
