Gynaecomastia, Male, North London

Im 28 years old and i have been treated for gynecomastia its been 12 weeks since i made that brave decision.
How it started i believe many many years ago i had noticed this problem but i never paid much attention to it, it could be due to many reason even at one stage i did visit the doctor but xplained it different so was not given the right attention aswell as being young, soon after i fell into some difficult times and moved away i started seeing this was not nice but was in a position in my life where i did not care and carried on for many years.
I was confused about what was going on i was shy of asking any one because i felt embarrassed and also hid it by wearing layers of clothes and when i took my top of i would pinch my nipples to make them tighter and show so no1 could see my puffy nipples, I been working out in and out of gyms from the age of 17, but in the last 2 years i decided to get into the fitness industry and trained hard but noticed my gyno was at its worst my fear was reality this problem is not just going to just go one day, i hid this from my gf of 8years i would restrict myself from doing stuff with her, swimming, holidays even having my top of when we was together i always laid onmy back so it could not be noticed by her, in honestly it affected our relationship.
This year 2016 i started searching up about this and realised what this problem was so i contacted my GP who did test on me and recommended me to go and see mr. Sojitra who was my surgeon. His secretary Carolyn and nurse Teresa, all made me very welcomed and treated me professionally and respectfully.
I always wondered the day this will go and then as i was getting ready to go in for my operation a sense of relief and finally im here.
Since my operation my team
Mr Nilesh Sojitra
have stayed in contact any doubts problems it was just a txt away which made it so helpful, i never had any problems thank God but i did keep in contact and visited them several times after for piece of mind and not once did they make me feel like i was wasting time which was the best bit, my nurse recommended me creams and tips also, I feel very posertive now and actually said to myself finally i can wear a white t shirt with out feeling like crap, i workout hard so should be proud of myself but was not until now, also you buy nice stuff to look nice, feel nice and i feel like i have come a long way very confident. Since surgery i have started to think of my health now which is a bonus to take care of 1 self and take care of the heart. This is just the beginning theres so much yet to come I never used to do running now im on cardio everyday and hopefully get abs lol..
I would like to thank everyone involved in the hospital team and a big thankyou to you 3, Mr sojitra  Carolyn Teresa

I had gynaecomastia since teens and one side was quite a lot larger than the other and finally i got the courage to come and see a surgeon.  I saw 4 surgeons and my fifth one was Nilesh Sojitra.  I saw so many as i just didnt feel safe and confident in the hands of the others.  Finally when i saw Mr Sojitra i felt reassured and confident as he was very honest in what could be achieved and almost downplayed the operation – im sure he didnt need another patient as his waiting room was full so he didnt feel the need to sell like the previous companies i went to.  The operation went well and i went home the same day with a garment that the hospital provided. At all times i felt i was well looked after and there  was always someone at the end of the fone. His nurse Teresa was caring and professional. i was back at work in 1 week after feeling a little battered and bruised.  i am now 4 months on and am delighted with the results. this has given me a new lease of life and i am eternally grateful to Mr Sojitra and his team. i would recommend anyone considering surgery to come and see him.

best wishes

I had gynaecomastia for a number of years and this was something that I was really struggling with. When I made the decision to resolve the issue, I knew I had to pick an excellent surgeon as this would be a life changing decision.  Mr Sojitra certainly lived up to my expectations.  Having spent years trying to mask the issue I was a little embarrassed about facing the problem and discussing it openly with other people, however Mr Sojitra and his staff made me feel completely comfortable.

The surgery itself went very smoothly and I was able to go home on the very same day.  I was surprised by the speed of the recovery and I was able to return to work in just over 4 days.  Recovery times will vary depending on the individual, however this is something that will be facilitated by the quality of the surgery itself.

My thanks to Mr Sojitra and his staff.

Dr Sojitra was clear about what I should and shouldn’t expect from the procedure and at no point did I feel as if I was being sold to.  I stayed at the hospital over night after the procedure and with regular checks from the nurse.  I never felt overlooked.  Once I was back at home although my mobility was affected, discomfort was minimal and I found I didn’t even need to use my painkillers.
