Read more about Gynecomastia surgery on Dr. Jacob's new Web site,

Male breast enlargement (Gynecomastia) is a condition that typically affects a significant number of men. The majority of these cases begin during adolescence. In most patients,Male breast enlargement /Gynecomastia  in New York gynecomastia is caused by a combination of dense breast tissue behind the nipple and fatty tissue over the pectoralis major muscle.Liposuction alone in these patients will often lead to disappointing results. In these cases, minimal incision surgery is used to remove the firm breast tissue through an incision that hides nicely at the edge of the areola.

When Dr. Jacobs uses this type of direct excision and combined with liposuction for feathering and tapering peripheral contour the results are most gratifying and have lasting results. Gynecomastia surgery is performed on an outpatient basis, with most patients reporting only modest discomfort. The improved chest contour is apparent by the third week following surgery after swelling subsides.
