Hello and thanks for the query.
Your penis is looking small only because of enlarged hydrocele.
Once the surgery is done,you will feel that the size of penis has become normal.
Hydrocelectomy can be performed in Day Surgery, which means that the patient should be able to go home after surgery once he is stable. More often an overnight stay is recommended.

 Surgical Site: There is no special care for the incision. Leave the surgical dressing or tape in place until it comes off by itself. 

 Bathing: The patient can bathe – couple of days after surgery. A warm bath without soap will help reduce swelling and discomfort. 

 Bruising/swelling: There can be bruising or swelling of the scrotum. This should resolve over the next few weeks. Ice packs applied to the scrotal area during the first 24 hours after surgery may help reduce swelling. 

 Scrotal Support: Adults may be advised to wear a scrotal support for a time after surgery. There may be a drainage tube that may need to be removed the day after the surgery. 

Surgery usually corrects the hydrocele and the underlying defect completely; recurrence is rare. The long-term outlook is excellent. There may be swelling of the scrotum for up to a month. The adult patient is able to resume most activities within seven to 10 days, although heavy lifting and sexual activities may be delayed for up to six weeks. 
It is better to travel after a visit to your doctor which is done around one week after the surgery.
As far as costing is concerned,it depends upon the hospital you choose.
The cost may be negligible if done in government hospital.
It is better to talk to your surgeon regarding the cost.
I hope to have answered your query however you may revert to me for any further query.
Best of luck.
Thanks.
