The gynecomastia surgery can be performed at our Chicago cosmetic surgery center on an outpatient basis. Many patients travel from Europe to our facility to have procedures done. We can go over the entire surgical procedure consultation and preparation with you through live consultation via skype, we can connect on the phone and also we can communicate through E-mails.
Usually patient arrives a day before the procedure when the final in- person consultation takes place. By that time all procedure's details are well discussed and patient is ready for the next day surgery. Usually patients come with companion to get some help for the first few days after the procedure. I would recommend to stay around for 48 hrs and after that time typically patient can go back home. Usually any questions during recovery time can be addressed same way as the preparation, photos are always helpful.
