Still Trying to Pick Up the Prices After Gynecomastia Surgery Has Been Botched Twice. - Sydney, Australia

I received surgery for unilateral gynecomastia 6 months ago, after the first couple of weeks my chest looked awful again and continued to get worse as the swelling subsided, after three months of being told it was just swelling and it would settle I went for an ultrasound. There was still a large amount of breast tissue left. Steve Merten assured me that he had taken everything out and that it must be regrowth but did not suggest a blood test of any kind?!?!? He operated again after three months as the pain and discomfort I was in was unbearable to the point where I wasn't able to wear any clothing over my top half without at least 3 thick plasters over my nipple. The swelling from the second operation was terrible, as was the pain. No one explained to me how to use the drains before I was discharged from the hospital and when I called the office to ask how this was done I was told to go back to the hospital (a 70 dollar cab ride away) and then laughed at by the receptionist. I have been left deformed again. I cannot work and I have had to move back to the uk with my parents. I wish I had never entered pure aesthetics and I would advise all male breast reduction patients to Avoid this surgeon and his rude staff like the plague

New surgeon booked

I have now been to see three separate surgeons, all of them agree that a bad job has been done both times. I now need liposuction on both sides, further gland excision, and scar correction to get my chest looking normal. Still experiencing a massive amount of discomfort and still unable to work.
