Wish I Could Have Done It Sooner - Marshfield, MA

I have had gynecomastia since I could remember. I used to hear it from the kids at recess in junior high. No matter how much I worked out I still could not get rid of my man boobs. I had this procedure done in June and it's been 5 months since. I can wear tighter fitting clothes and don't have to be as self conscious. Dr Ishoo was great. He has developed his own technique and I was very surprised how easily this could be done in his own Surgical Suite in his office. Recovery was easy. I am very pleased with my results. You do have to follow a lot of post-procedure instructions and you need to keep your follow up appointments for aftercare and massage for the desired results. The worst part was initially some swelling and I needed some drainage procedures (all routine by the way) and the fact that it was the beginning of summer and I had to wear a compression vest for most of it. All of the aftercare and appointments are included in your initial payment. So no matter how many follow up procedures or appointments you need, you aren't shelling out money. It was definitely worth it and I wish I could have done this a long time ago.


Hello!!! Thank you for sharing your experience. The PS´S experience and personal technique are the key to the results but you did your part as well. It is very important to return for all followup visits and follow the doctor´s instructions to the T.The combination of the technique and healing process are the perfect combination to reach the best results. 80% of post surgery complications occur because the patient does not follow the doctor´s instructions. You are a success story and a roll model for future patients!!! Enjoy your results
