"Undershirts are now for sleeping in, instead of covering up my chest." "All my expectations were met and after being embarrassed about my gynecomastia for more than 50 years, that apprehension disappeared shortly after I first met Dr. Jacobs and my life has been changed for the bet..." "From consult to finish, I have always had a pleasant interaction with him and his staff."

5 out of 5 stars Male Breast Reduction

Gynecomastia Success - New York

Every aspect of the entire experience was outstanding.

5 out of 5 stars Breast Implants

Excellent Surgeon and a Great Post Operative Result

I have been going to this surgeon for 12 years. He is professional and knowledgeable about the procedures. He really takes his time explaining the surgery and he listens to me. His staff is ultra professional and I would highly recommend him. It is difficult in the Upper East Side to find a good surgeon who also is approachable and makes you feel comfortable. Initially I went in for...

Gynecomastia Srugery - New York, NY

Friendly, professional, knowledgeable , supportive

5 out of 5 stars Botox

Botox - Manhattan, NY

I have been a patient of Dr. Jacobs since 2010. I originally went to him for just Botox injections and in the last two years I have gotten some Juvederm. I am extremely happy with the results of both as it looks very natural. I have always found Dr. Jacobs to be patient and thorough. His office staff are very professional and helpful. I am thinking of having my eyes done next year and I have...

5 out of 5 stars Male Breast Reduction

Life Changing Procedure - New York, NY

I have been struggling with an abnormally large chest since I my early teens. I always thought I just needed to lose a little bit of weight, but over time, I realized that this was an issue that was never going to go away. No matter how skinny I was, I still did not feel comfortable going out without wearing several layers. I eventually came to realize that this was no way to live my life. I...

4 out of 5 stars Rhinoplasty

Wouldn't Recommend for Rhinoplasty. New York, NY

Overall, I thought Dr. Jacobs and his staff were nice. I went to him three times. One was shortly after my rhinoplasty and the other was a few years afterwards. On the visit shortly after the rhino (it was to get filler in my face), he became a little impatient b/c I was very worried of looking too plastic, but I still went back a few years laster for my other procedure because I never felt distrustful of him and didn't really think he botched my nose. Yet it does seem that what he did needs to be fixed now, so I base my review on that.

5 out of 5 stars Male Breast Reduction

Gynecomastia 26 Y/o Post-Op 6 Months + Review - New York

Dr. Jacobs is an excellent practitioner. From consult to finish, I have always had a pleasant interaction with him and his staff. Everything was explained well ad inifinitum and in the end, one worries less and less about the procedure and end results. I highly recommended him.

5 out of 5 stars Facelift

72 Year Old Male - New York, NY

They were very caring and answered all of my questions beforehand

5 out of 5 stars Breast Reduction

Trust Me..It's Never Too Late - New York, NY

I don't know what more to say! Dr. Jacobs is a soft spoken, kind, gentle, caring person who in my opinion as a surgeon is unparalleled in both his surgical skills and his bedside manner. He spent as much time with me as I required and more in fact than I expected. Every question that I had was not only answered but anticipated and was answered clearly, concisely and accurately. The pre-op evaluation, the day of surgery and all the post op appointments went smoothly and as advertised. All my expectations were met and after being embarrassed about my gynecomastia for more than 50 years, that apprehension disappeared shortly after I first met Dr. Jacobs and my life has been changed for the better in ways difficult to describe. I am not adequately able to express my gratitude to both Dr. Jacobs and his staff for the life altering experience that they have afforded me. With sincerest Thanks, James W.

5 out of 5 stars Chin Surgery

68 Years Old, Semi Retired, Independent Management Consultant, Sagging Chin - Manhattan, NY

Dr. Jacobs was very thorough and considerate in his pre-surgery evaluation, assessment, recommendations and setting of expectations. The surgery and recovery was uneventful. Dr. Jacobs was especially attentive during recovery, and follow-up. As an out of state patient, I am especially pleased with Dr. Jacobs attentiveness by phone and email, before and after surgery, and for an extended period post surgery.

Eyelid Surgery for Migraine Headaches

A new study suggests that a well-known cosmetic procedure just might be the next tool to help those who suffer from chronic migraine headaches. Eyelid surgery, also known as blepharoplasty, used to access and release key nerves, was recently found to be about 90% effective in relieving symptoms. As reported in Science Daily, Dr. Oren Tessler, a plastic surgeon from Louisiana State University, headed the group of doctors who operated on 35 men and women. All patients suffered migraine...

In fact, one forum member recently published a list of the things he looks forward to doing after having male breast reduction surgery.That list included “having sex with the lights on.”He also...
