Travel for Gynecomastia Surgery - Local Information

travel for gynecomastia surgery
Many of Dr. Cruise's patients travel for gynecomastia surgery from all over the world. His staff is equipped to handle any of your needs when making arrangements to travel for gynecomastia surgery. The information below is just a sampling of information which will help you being to plan for your trip. We recommend reaching out to your patient care coordinator for additional advice and recommendations.

If you plan to travel for gynecomastia surgery, and your procedure is being performed under general anesthesia, you will be required to stay at an overnight recovery facility for at least the first 24 hours following surgery. Our office will provide the necessary details about the recovery facility either at your consultation or when you confirm your surgery date.
