Simple Surgery, Low Cost - Mission Viejo

I did out-patient/local anesthetic surgery, six...

I did out-patient/local anesthetic surgery, six weeks apart. It took about 1 1/2 hrs. each time. He removed the gland and some fatty tissue that equaled the size of a small fist. Minimal pain, major swelling.

The Doctor had warned me about the possibility of swelling, but I had now idea it would be that bad. About 10 days after the first side, I noticed a little leakage. When I squeezed just a bit, bam, a ton of rust colored liquid came pouring out. After that, the swelling went down tremendously. After that, I knew what to expect and the second one was a piece of cake. When I went back for the second side, which was the first time I had been seen by the Doctor since my surgery 6 weeks earlier, He told me it might take 6 months for the swelling to go away completely.

It's now been 2 weeks since my second surgery and it's the same story on the liquid. I have a hard knot under the incision of the first side. The Doctor said its scar tissue that will also go away in time.

All said, I would highly recommend the surgery and the surgeon. He somehow got hooked up with a few bodybuilders and has had a steady stream visiting since. All word of mouth... I guess that means most have been happy with the results.

What type of procedure did you have that was this affordable. I'm in good shape, and have 'pointy' breast for a male.

I'm curious because I live near the city you listed.
