Gynecomastia Success - New York

As I got older, I began to develop 'man boobs' - and no matter how much I worked out my chest, it did not help. I was tired of 'hiding' my chest with the kinds of shirts I wore - mostly 'non clingy'. I also was uncomfortable with my 'breasts' bouncing when I ran, or when driving went over bumps.

Finally at the age of 49 'enough was enough' and I did my research and found Dr. Elliot Jacobs in NYC. His staff is fantastic, and Dr. Jacobs is patient, kind, experienced, and skillful. I was prepared for the entire pre and post care. I know that 2 lbs of tissue were removed (fat and breast tissue). Yes, the healing process is challenging - but I knew it and was prepared.

It took about 6 to 8 weeks to heal to a point where any more changes were no longer noticeable to me. It was the best decision of my life - and still over 3 years later, I am thrilled with the change. I now wear slim fitting shirts with ease, and no longer 'bounce' :-). Thank you Dr. Jacobs!
