Hi, I'm a new member to gynecomastia.org. I will be undergoing surgery August 1, 2008 under Dr. Ganchi's care. My question to all those members, were you fully naked underneath the gown they made you wear, or were you allowed to have boxers or shorts on? I'm not well endowed down there so I am very self conscious. Embarrassed I'm a grower not a shower, but I feel uncomfortable knowing my surgeon and his assistants will see me naked because they do not know that I'm a grower, and although they will not humiliate me, I just feel very uncomfortable. Thanks for anyone's help!

For my patients, boxers are just fine -- no need to be totally naked for the surgery.

Ditto.  When I'm operating on the chest area, my patients are free to wear boxers or briefs, and we leave them on.

Not to worry.  Cheesy

Thank you very much for the replies. It makes me feel quite at ease. I have one more question though. I read somewhere on this forum about things patients do not know about during surgery. The person said that when the patient is sedated under anesthesia (knocked out), the surgeon and the assistants strip the patient naked and rub Betadine on them. Ive seen videos where they do rub some yellowish brown liquid, but do they rub that all over the body including genitals or only on the upper body since the surgery deals with the chest only?...Your reply is greatly appreciated!

Thank you,
    D.i.p.

During surgery, antiseptic (usually Betadine, a type of brown iodine fluid) is applied to the area to be operated upon (in this case, your chest) and the immediate surrounding areas. The genitals are never included.

Well I had my op done in a hospital operating theater and had to wear the surgical gown thing that opens at the back, and these disposable underwear things.  All of which left nothing to the imagination...

It was slightly embarrassing because the anesthetist and the two surgery assistants were all female and very attractive.  It was far more embarrassing to me that I was getting a GYNO op though.

like the other guy said, you are never going to see them again, they would probably never recognize you in the street, and they would have seen hundreds of shriveled & frightened dicks in their work.

It doesn't matter - because they're gonna insert a cathater anyway- and I'm pretty sure no matter what size you are once that thing is inserted - everybody retracts like a turtle.

Plus - I'm pretty self concious and inhibited and once they shot me w/the happy juice - I wouldn't have cared if I had to walk through the waiting room naked.  BTW I was naked under the gown and didn't mind.  Good luck.

Having a catheter for gynecomastia surgery?  Nonsense!!  Not on this planet!

Sorry Doc but they told me they were sticking something up there so I could urinate while in surgery.

Don't doubt your word  --  but if they did place a catheter, they truly went overboard in doing your surgery. In my opinion, placing a urinary catheter for a 1-2 hour operation on a healthy young man is just not necessary.
