What excuses can I give to hide that I had surgery?

For my patients, I suggest they stay close to the truth: that they injured their chest. There is typically no need to tell anyone about such private issues, but letting people know that there has been an injury helps protect the healing tissues. It is no fun when someone who does not know hits you on the front of the chest. This permits alteration of work loads and easing back into doing things quickly after surgery.

The best way to hide that you had a surgery is to pick a surgeon with techniques resulting in less Discomfort After Gynecomastia Surgery and has less Swelling and Bruising After Male Breast Reduction. With less injury and pain, there is less to hide.

If someone asks about the After Surgery Compression Garment saying that is is splinting and protecting the injured chest is right on target.

Hope this helps,
