Gynecomastia Surgery Credentials

Today, Dr. Jacobs is very widely recognized as an expert in gynecomastia surgery and FTM top surgery in Boca Raton. He is frequently tapped for interviews by broadcast and print media about male breast reduction.
Gynecomastia surgery at its best produces masculine contours that harmonize with the rest of the body.

Then, armed with his extensive knowledge of what is surgically possible and exercising superb aesthetic judgment, he is able to devise an individual plan for improvement that is unique for every patient – and which may or not require surgery. Best of all, he possesses the rare ability to make his hands create what his mind has conceived.
