How realistic is it
« on: January 08, 2006, 08:40:34 PM »
How realistic is it to have a gynecomastia removal surgery with someone in a different state?  I am in Philadelphia and considering using Dr. Silverman in Boston after seeing the great results he has.  I have had the surgery already once (a couple of years ago) with someone in the area and was not very pleased with the results.  The gyne seems to be re-occuring as well and it looks like I will need a revision sooner or later.  So am I researching the topic.  I was probably going to choose Dr. Nadler in NY for his vast experience, but it seems that he has retired.

I think I would probably like to stay at least 7 days most likely.  Last time, they planned to take the drains out in 3 days but had to keep it in for 6 due to the draining.  How are hotel rooms in Boston price wise?

I first found out abou Dr. Silverman from Dr Nadler but also read a lot of reviews (on this site as well) of people very happy with his service.

Very realistic.

If I did not live in the New Orleans area and knew my results with Dr. Metzner would have been as great as they are, I would have definitely come here from out of state.

You could get a hotel bout 11 miles away from his offices for $70 a night.
Not  much out there less than that.
The good news is, that he is pretty close to the airport if that's the route you want to go.
Keep us informed of who ya go with, and why.
Thanks for his website too.
I mailed him and asked how much he charges. DO you know?
Good luck

I'll definitely keep you guys posted.  I emailed him 2-3 days ago but never recieved a reply.  Not quite sure how much he charges.

Do you mind if i ask the doctor's name?  I live right outside of Philly and am having the procedure done by Dr. Benjamen Lam in Langhorne, PA on Jan 23.  He is doing excision and lipo.  I just want to make sure it is not the same doctor you went to.  Thanks

silverman's been well spoken of here, and lots of people travel for this.  discuss it with him specifically, since everyone's a little different, but i'd think with a day or three's recovery in a motel you'd be able to handle non-strenuous travel.

To what extent can swelling occur? How much reduction is realistic?
