Gynecomastia Surgery Post Op Jerome’s surgery complete Jerome’s recovery continues Male: What we are doing with Jerome and actually did very, very well, he’s awake from anesthesia now, awake talking, and pain free he tells us. And everything went well; I was quite pleased with things, so we’re on to the second case. The cases are over; we had a long but good success all day. I think everyone will turn out well and I was very pleased with how things went. Jerome is going to be the most difficult due to the extent of his laxative skin and how large he was. The other two are much younger and should do quite well. We had a good full day and everything went very well and it's always a pleasure to work at this office, I enjoy all the people I work with. They become my friends and it's a good experience and I enjoy it. Everyday is long but it's very, very good and it feels very good taking care of patients. Kevin, the last patient in the recovery room Post-op visit 1 and 2 Male: There is also the possibility that it wont exactly turn out the way they want to look, there’s cases of surgeons removing too much or too little and if it's too much it's a bigger problem to resolve and they don’t look like—there’s a lot of people who think they’re going to look like Tom Cruise after surgery but that’s not a realistic chest. First visit after surgery, two days later Male: We get to unveil things and see how things look, so if there’s any problem on how things are healing. We’re going to put on drains today, that’s ten times uncomfortable but the most interesting thing is the patient gets the first chance to look at themselves. Even though things are swollen, black and blue and somewhat painful, it's still an interesting time so this is their first follow up appointments and we’ll see them in again in about a week starting to take out stitches and getting new garments on. So that’s our plain today is get the drains out, get them cleaned up and show them how they look. Everybody does surprisingly well, I got no calls, I call them the following day and they all “we’re doing great, no pain, no discomfort” I was very encouraged. No issues and that’s the way I like it, no issues. Female: Today they are coming in and it has been two days after the surgery so we’re all pretty excited to see them. They might be coming on the slow side, probably a little sore because the surgery was pretty aggressive. The exciting part is we take off their garments, their dressings, we clean everything off, take some drains out and then possibly try on some new vest and get things a little more secure and compression. Compression garments because they still have to be really careful as far as exercising and keeping their activities low and prevents them from swelling and side effects. This is a very simple office, it is that the general would come on in and they’ll come to the room and I’ll take probably ten 15 minutes from the time we start taking off their garments and bandages to the time they’ll get another appointment to come back in another possible four to seven days.
