19 year old, going to get surgery.

A few questions!  :)

OK so from the beggenning I guess...

I'm 19 years old now, and i live in the UK. I have had gynecomastia (relativly mild i think) for many years now. I have not told my doctor or any of my family. I am at a point in my life now where I want surgery, so I can be free from this and get on with my youth!

Does anyone know if I would first need to discuss this with my GP? I understand that I could get the surgery possibly on the NHS, but to be honest I was thinking about going abroad (maybe USA) to have the opperation done by a reputable surgeon. It would mean using part of my years student finances, but I can stretch it, and I would feel more comfortable with a gynecomastia specialist.

How much could the price be? Baring in mind I would need to stay in the country for a few days at least.

Also, can you just go to a plastic surgeon for a consultation without any previous doctor refferences? and what can I expect the surgeon to do prior to surgery? (blood tests, examinations, etc??)

anyone's thoughts on anything I have said would be great!

Going to a Plastic Surgeon is completely discreet ... you can keep it on the low.

However, I went through the NHS route first to be told to fcuk off a year later ..

And then, I made my mind up to go to Levick who will now be operating on me this week Friday at the cost of just under £4000.

Im 20, so also using student finances and borrowing cash of my dad until I can pay him back later this year.

If you want the op done by a good surgeon for cheap and abroad go to Poland. You can get it done for like £2000 and also have a holiday their.

I haven't got the balls to leave this country for surgery so im paying that 2 grand extra for this live-changing op.

im in the same position as you im 19 and at uni and planning to get an op done. i have decided to go to poland in december just before xmas once uni has broke up. i would suggest you consider looking at poland it considerably cheaper around 1500 and i have heard alot of good things from them. also the seem very helpfull and professional.with that price it includes a nights stay among other things. umm i know the cause of my gynecomastia so i dont realy need bloodwork testing however i would suggest if you didnt know the cause that you get your bloodwork done in order to fix the problem and make sure it doesnt return again.

Surgery tomorrow!! After waiting almost a year **Updated almost 6 year post op**
